My family loves 4 Rivers and we dine in often. The Longwood location consistently screws up our takeout orders, charging us for items but leaving them out. It's super annoying because we live too far to drive back and whoever handles telephone complaints never follows through. Even if they do return your call several days later, they won't refund your... More

Great ribs with a little something for everyone. Go early because they get busy quick. You can always order ahead and pick it up to save time. My husband loves the ribs but I love the BBQ Cuban sandwich. The sides are so original. The cheese grits are delicious and the cornbread salad is refreshing, just to name a few.... More

Amazing Texas BBQ. Great atmosphere and staff. Always consistent and the deserts are wonderful. Go later in the afternoon if you want to avoid waiting in line. Well worth the wait.

In spite of lengthy lines, 4 Rivers is definitely worth the wait. Great meats, outstanding side dishes, and fabulous desserts!

This is what St. Peter will be serving! The brisket is amazing. Tender, moist, and just the right touch of spice. The Six Shooter is a great item on the "Signature Stackers" menu. A generous pile of pulled pork on a slab of cheese grits, topped with coleslaw, pickles and jalapeños. What more could you ask for?!

Elizabeth who works in the Longwood location, dessert dept, went out of her way to make us special cupcakes for my birthday. She was so nice, I hope she gets recognized by her management! I don't eat meat and can barely stomach the greasy meat smell inside the restaurant, but the desserts are worth putting up with the smell. At... More

The taste of all the food they have to offer is amaizing and would recommend it if you have the extra cash. The only thing I did not like was the amount of food for the price I paid. There are other places in Orlando with equally good bbq for less $ and the portions are comparatively bigger than 4... More

I have been to 4-Rivers many times with my family and family friends. We have never had a truly bad experience at the restaurant. The food is always filling and delicious! We have tried their BBQ and various dessert options. On our most recent visit, I had the Signature Angus Brisket Smokehouse Sandwich. Overall, the sandwich was very tasty. However,... More

I have visited twice and I'm not impressed. They seem to have a cult following but I'm just not seeing the appeal. The BBQ is good but you have to order at a window and pick it up at another and you seat yourself and take care of yourself. For the price of the food and the portions, I expect... More
