Dreamland comes to us from Alabama. I've visited their home location in Tuscaloosa. It maintains the unkempt charm of a BBQ establishment; unlike many spots, its decrepitude is honest and earned. The ribs there are outstanding. So when I realized that they have several locations around Atlanta I had to compare.
As you can see, they do things the right way. It's easy for a chain to let standards slip as they proliferate, but Dreamland seems to have kept the food just as good while providing the sort of establishment that one expects to see in a strip mall.
I decided to try the combo platter. The sausage was the hit of the day---wonderfully smoky. Although I'm a rib addict, I plan to get them again. The ribs were outstanding. The green beans were very well done and had the mandantory bits of pork floating in them. The baked beans were similarly outstanding.
