If it's something that you need to get a large quantity of for a group gathering - this is your place - but don't expect to get something that you will write home about.

Don't like the way food is served. No plates. Food is ok but standing in line to order is not great. By the time you get to sit down and eat your food is Luke warm at best.

Had the prime rib sandwich with homemade horseradish sauce unbelievable. Cooked to perfection and the sides were great. Laid back atmosphere. Ordered at the counter and then you bring to the table. Dinner was topped off by an unbelievable cupcake had a hard time choosing.

All my friends LOVE 4Rivers, and can't stop raving. Me? I think it's slightly overrated but I do enjoy their sliced pork. I've tried a variety of their meats, including their brisket, ribs, sandwiches, etc. I wish they gave you more of the side dishes (those are usually the best). Mac n cheese and fries are my go-to, but I... More

Good spot for a BBQ fix for a casual lunch or dinner. Recommend the burnt ends sandwhich which was excellent. For sides would highly recommend the cheesy grits. Also a lot of outrageously big sweets for those who like a little dessert. Good stuff.

I love the food.....I hate the wait. The best way to beat this place is to call ahead for takeout and then eat it there. Probably a character flaw on my part, but I don't wait in line very well, and that's what you will do at any of the 4-Rivers because they are very good and very busy.

Very ordinary food. Do not go with a group.you probably will not be able to sit together. If you like huge portions, go for it. One person's ribs were quite lean and good. Mine were the opposite.

I am not sure what all the fuss is about Four Rivers. There is often a line out the door, but I cannot say it is worth the wait. The pulled pork sandwich is good - but it is hard to mess up a pulled pork sandwich. The array of sides offered is not exciting, and they are not too... More

Not impressed, just BBQ, not that special, but if you like desserts they have some great choices. Atmosphere is enjoyable.
