    The original location in Tuscaloosa, a homegrown joint with a worldly following, still packs in hungry diners.

Nowadays, servers deliver complimentary appetizer plates of white bread and the same sauce that the original owner, Big Daddy, developed. Smoked sausage, chopped pork sandwiches and sides of beans, slaw, potato salad and banana pudding have been added to the menu since the original restaurant opened. But keeping those ribs just like they used to be is key to Dreamland’s success both here and at the other shops, explained Betsy McAtee, the CEO of today’s Dreamland. “All of our Dreamlands use the same meat, the same sauce, the same wood vendor out of Tuscaloosa, just like the original location,” she said.

A tiny smoker sits out front puffing smoke rings to draw you inside where the walls are covered in writing and memorabilia.

The pork has a lovely bark on the shoulders, so sandwiches are a blend of tender inside pieces and crunchy outside portions. A red sauce tops off the pork, but not so much as to take away from the meat’s flavor. More
