Although we live some distance away it is always worth the drive to take advantage of the amazing food and interesting environment. It is a wonderful place, even my picky children love it.

You will have to get off the interstate to find this place but it's worth it. They set just off the square in this small town but it is easy to get around. The menu has a good selection but the bar-b-q was good. The bar-b-q nachos and bake potato was very good and a large serving portion. The wait... More

We continued on our annual fall color trip. We left Mena, Arkansas and traveled mostly north. Yesterday, we drove the Talimena Scenic Drive; today we did the Pig Trail Scenic Drive - with plenty of ups and downs and tight curves again. There were a bunch of reduced speed corners - a few marked 15 miles per hour and at... More

Although we live some distance from Rivertowne BBQ, we take advantage of every opportunity to be in that area during lunchtime so that we can enjoy the great food and friendly service there. The place is big and busy but the crowd drops off after the lunch hour. Seating is divided between booths and tables and there are sufficient wait... More

We visited on the recommendation of a friend on a cross-country drive. It is about a 15 minute drive off I-40 through a sleepy little town but the meal and a walk around the town were both refreshing. I had a BBQ brisket sandwich and my family shared a mixed BBQ meat plate. Both meals were excellent and a good... More

This was my second visit to Rivertowne BBQ this year...and we live in Ohio! This time I tried the pulled pork sandwich, regular size, and it was tasty. Good quick service, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Best place it town!

Great barbecue place for dinner in a nice little town with terrific service. Jesse was our server--I think that was her name--whose suggestions for our meal were spot on and whose friendliness was real and refreshing. The hostess made sure we got the table next to the window so we could keep an eye on our dog in the car.... More

Have always liked Rivertowne BBQ. It now has new owners and the new hours make it more accessible. Food is good, although I think some of the portions have gotten smaller? The local workmen flock there for lunch and those folks out for a motorcycle ride thru the countryside also favor stopping here.

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!
