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

This place deserves its reputation as a great place to eat. The pulled pork was delicious with great spicy BBQ sauce; coleslaw was good and tangy, and the sweet potato fries were amazing - sprinkled with brown sugar and dipped in a butter and brown sugar sauce - Yum!

The place was perfect for a BBQ restaurant and the service couldn't have been better. I decided to get the combo plate which had shredded pork, sliced brisket and ribs with baked beans and potato salad for sides. All of the meat was dry with very little flavor and it was a chore to get meat off of the rib... More

When this place first opened, there were times that you couldn't find a table...since there has been a change in ownership, the quality has gone down hill. There used to be a smoked catfish dinner on Friday's..no longer on the menu! This was an awesome dinner and I am bummed that it is now gone. About our dinner last night,... More

Good meat, big quantities and nice atmosphere! I had pulled pork and it is tasty and really a lot! But you can also taste ribs here! You can also take away what you can't eat! I recommend.

On Tuesday evening we returned to Rivertown BBQ after about a year without their great BBQ. I had heard it had a new owner and hoped it was still as great as in years past. On entering I noticed a daily special of all you can eat ribs for $16.95. The waitress seated us and was taking our order. I... More

I wanted to try the opossum on the menu but my boyfriend (who was paying) wouldn't let me! I did have a sandwich through and it more than met my expectations :)

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.
