Good food

We camped in Ozark for a week and gave this place a try one day for lunch. The service was very good, our waitress friendly and kept our glasses filled. The BBQ pork sandwich was good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I have had better elsewhere, but I was not disappointed... read more

My husband read about this place in a magazine so we decided we would give it a try for lunch since we would be passing through there on our way to Northwest Arkansas. Oh my was it good, I had the pulled pork & my husband had the ribs with strawberry cobbler for dessert. It's nothing elegant or fancy just... More

Rivertowne BBQ is a great place, wonderful food and the staff are so friendly. The only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating is the prices are a little high.

The food was very good, and the service was top notch. Our waitress was Nikkole and she smiled brightly and brightened our day. All the wait staff were sweet and helpful. They had ran out of the special by the time we were there for lunch but the experience there was still great. It's one of the best BBQ places... More

We stopped by to check out this place while we were in town. The BBQ was okay, but it was sliced way too thick and was a bit dry. I ordered some banana pudding and it was baaaaad! I asked our server how old it was and her response was "I didn't make it!" I got her to take it... More

The place has some pretty good food! It's just not as good as it use to be when it was owned by the previous owner. Helpings are smaller some recipes have changed. Some familiar faces from the staff such as waitresses.Which the staff does an excellent job as well. Like I said it's just not the same.

Rivertowne BBQ has some of the best BBQ you will ever eat. Is it the best? Of course that is debatable, but it should not not disappoint you. A change of ownership in the past year has led to increased hours, 7-day a week dining, and beer availability. While I feel like the food quality has suffered a tiny bit... More

Rivertown BBQ was considered for many years to have the best BBQ in the River Valley region of Arkansas. When I last ate there 3 years ago, that reputation was deserved. The place was a little rough, the service was consistently poor, and the food was awesome. When my family and I stopped there in late February however, things had... More
