We just happened to be in Ozark at lunchtime and decided to try Rivertowne BBQ. We were seated right away and had good, friendly service. The inside is rustic, but comfortable. My husband and I both ordered the pulled pork sandwich. We wished we would have shared because the sandwiches were large. The meat is smoked on the premises and... More

I do not understand why people say this is good bbq. I have had better bbq from a microwave. The meat is very dry and lacks flavor. Everyone tells me to put the sauce on the meat that's what it is there for. The meat should not be so dry that it requires sauce to add moisture.

Rivertowne has the best b-b-q in Northwest Arkansas and the Arkansas River Valley. The portions are huge so be prepared to share or take home. You won't be disappointed....family friendly.

I was in town for business and Rivertowne BBQ was recommended by the local team for lunch. I must say I have had a lot of BBQ in my travels, this one one of the beat. I has the brisket sandwich and it was excellent! The staff was superb and the restaurant exceptional clean. Highly Recommend

Best BBQ I have ever had. It was crowded and had to wait but it was worth it. If you are traveling any where near Ozark you must stop and eat!!!

This place would be great if they used more rub (spices) while cooking the meats. I am a BBQ fanatic. BBQ is based on my opinion by how well it is cooked and the taste. BBQ should taste great without the need for sauce (which should add to the experience). The food was cooked well, I assume they are using... More

We were traveling thru and stopped to get take out. The food was average. If you order brisket by the pound it will only be hot if you order a day in advance.

One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Had to wait awhile, but it was certainly worth the wait and the trip to Ozark. I am the director of sales of a hotel in Fort Smith, and I will recommend to all of our guest to make the short drive to Ozark to experience the great... More

Rivertowne, Owner at Rivertowne BBQ, responded to this review

I apologize for our mistake on your take-out order. I know the three young ladies who take and pack orders did not do it intentionally. If you had called and let us know what happened we would have rectified our mistake to your satisfaction. I only purchase the best meats and have from the day Rivertowne opened, and I will... More
