When the powers-that-be at the Alabama Tourism Department decided to identify the “100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die” they probably had a pretty good idea about some of the iconic Alabama eats that just had to be on the list.
It’s also easy to believe that one of those dishes had to be the ribs and white bread at the original Dreamland BBQ in Tuscaloosa.
At first glance, it’s as simple and unfussy as you can get: ribs with sauce and white bread. But for anyone who has enjoyed Dreamland’s ribs and sauce, “simple” is not a word to describe the smoky layers of flavor.
What you can call them are “simply delicious.”
