Stopped by while in Orlando for a family emergency. Born and raised in Melbourne and have not had a decent BBQ since moving to New England in 2000. Out looking for a meal and could not do the regular chain meal. Loved the look and knew I was back home. Meal for myself and my wife was awesome and very... More

4 Rivers Smokehouse (in Longwood) is a much better choice if you want a real BBQ, not Bubbalou's Bodacious Bar B Que. Try 4 Rivers and you'll see the difference.

Nice smoky pulled pork without sauce, which you can add from various sauces at your table. Serving sizes are ample, and we always have leftovers. Extensive menu with something for everyone. Clean, nice staff, delicious food. Great semi- self serve restaurant. ...and oh, those baked beans...!

This joint used to be very good...but it has changed for the worse: waiters try very hard but quality isn't there any more, baby ribs were terrible (dry, not falling off the bone, overcooked, they are perhaps using another supplier or cook), fried beans so so sweet. When we complained to the waitress, she said she was going to report... More

When you enter this old fashioned BBQ joint you go to the counter and look at the marquee on the back wall to order, if you're eating in you go to the table of your choice and wait (with mine it was only a couple of minutes) for a server (who continues to watch the tables for any additional needs...

The food is delicious! However, when I glanced into the kitchen and saw my food getting nuked in the microwave...I became very disappointed. Nothing like Kellers...where they warm the food on the grill.

Always a favorite place to eat when in the Orlando area. The pulled pork has just enough smoke and bbq flavor and the beef brisket is delicious. Meals are priced well. it's a great value.

I read my fellow advisors reviews and I have not tasted the food yet. I'm actually standing here waiting for my to go order which we called in. BUT, the customer service is so awful till I don't want to wait for the food. Half of the business is getting people in the door. We stood in front of the... More
