Great BBQ in Ozark

My wife and I had a wonderful combo BBQ platter that included pork, brisket and ribs. Plate was full of food and quality matched quanity.

There seems to be a few changes, with regard to serving size. They started serving beer, which I always liked the fact that they didn't. They are now open seven days a week, which I also don't like

My spouse and I were extremely pleased with our lunch experience at Rivertown. It was clean with interesting decor and the staff were attentive to our needs. We will go back there again. We both very much enjoyed our food there today. I recommend this place in Ozark, Arkansas.

Driving Route 40 to AZ....found this rib restaurant on Trip Advisor. My husband loves ribs and Rivertowne did not disappoint. We shared fried green tomatoes (my favorite) and we each had a rib dinner with sides. OMG....huge portions, excellent sides (okra, slaw, beans), couldn't finish it all. The setting is real casual as you would expect. Service was very good... More

They have a pic on wall of an obama supporting liberal. I won't go back. I don't support liberals. They tried to take our guns with gun control. Screw them, if they support them.

I am sorry that picture bothered you. He had eaten here years ago and wanted to praise the food. It was put there by the previous owners. I tried not to change any of the decor when we took over, but It has been taken down now. I hope you will come back and enjoy the food. If you have... More

We was told about this place and it was so very, very good and lots of food. Service was great and price is good. My husband does BBQ and he said this was just perfect. My first time eating sweet potatoes fries and they was so darn good afraid I might be disappointed at the next place.

We stop often at Rivertowne on our way to or from ballgames in Fayetteville. We've never had a bad meal and the service is fast and efficient. On Saturday nights, they have a prime rib special and it is a local favorite so the wait time can get a little long. Since the place has been expanded, we've never had... More

Rivertowne BBQ is probably some of the best BBQ around. I have been there several times and will make more trips in the future. Good food and great service along with tasty pork make for a winning combination.

After reading the other reviews I had to try this place while I was in Ozark visiting my mother. Not impressed as everyone else seems to be. My brisket was tuff, the pulled pork was average and the ribs were just OK. My sweet potato fries were not fresh and my mother said the coleslaw was not that great so... More
