About Dreamland Bar-B-Que
In 1958, spirits were high in Tuscaloosa as Paul “Bear” Bryant began his long career as coach of the Crimson Tide football team and John “Big Daddy” Bishop opened up the first Dreamland Café just south of town. Bishop was a brick mason by trade and began selling simple meals of grilled barbecue pork ribs with his wife, Miss Lilly, as a way to get a little extra cash. Little did the Bishops know that their bustling barbecue shack off of Highway 82 would blossom into 8 locations. A bona fide southern institution, the Café is famous for its tangy secret barbecue sauce, meaty slabs of slow-cooked ribs, and creamy, ambrosial banana pudding. Today, the slightly larger menu satisfies cravings for old-school Alabama barbecue recipes with pulled pork, hickory-grilled chicken, baked beans, and coleslaw.
Living up to the Café's motto—“Ain't Nothing Like 'Em Nowhere"—Dreamland's famous ribs are a cultural touchstone of the state of Alabama, like a haunting Hank Williams tune. At each location, a friendly, country-style hospitality shines forth in every door held open, earning the loyal patronage of families and local fans, as well as a raft of visiting celebrities and elected officials.
