Good food, Christian establishment

Wow! I was blown away by the food. Excellent portions of meat scooped onto trays with sides served in cups. Very tasty barbecue meat and the sides all have a homemade flavor. On the downside this place is always packed out and you will wait in line for food. I have driven past when there is... read more

Ive always heard or seen so many people lined up to get in this restaurant when they first opened in winter park. It wasnt that the food was bad, just didnt seperate it self from the bbq places in orlando! I found the ribs and brisket to be average, street bbq taste just as good and more for the buck,... More

Very good food and the way they serve it on brown paper is like you are in your own backyard. You have a choice of angus beef , sausage etc. The ribs are very good and so is the sausage .

If we are in Longwood we eat here! No exceptions. I consider myself a barbecue connoisseur and I love their messy pig sandwich and many of their other items. And so does my entire family. Never had a bad experience or bad food here. Mac and cheese is perfect!

Holy cow, the hype is well deserved for this place! Everything I've had here is simply amazing. Excellent bbq, excellent sauce, excellent sides. Very friendly staff that takes your order. My kids eat every bite too! The green beans, Mac n cheese, baked beans and fried pickles are my favorites! Every sandwich and meat I've tried are delicious. Keep meaning... More

After previously visiting 4RS while visiting the area I was anticipating a better experience this time around. We moved a rather large party rapidly through a long line thanks to the efficiency of the staff. My group ended up sharing around 1/2 chicken, wings and brisket sandwich. Some thought the brisket was dry while others were satisfied. The chicken seemed... More

Another place that I tried with my son. He was home on leave so he and his army buddy wanted to have dinner with me. We went there and I was NOT disappointed! I have been back several times and I have also stopped in to grab some of the brisket to go home and serve my boyfriend for dinner... More

The best BBQ in Florida. Probably better than those in Memphis and Texas. Homemade desserts that 4 people can share. You won't be disappointed. Long lines at meal times.

I am a local and have been hearing rave reviews of 4 Rivers for many years, but until today I had never eaten there as their closest location is about 45 minutes away from my house. The dining format is similar to how a subway restaurant works, after walking in you wait in line to order at the front counter.... More

I went to this place today for the first time and I really like it. The brisket sandwich ( without the bread) I ordered came with two homemade sides of my choice and they offered me corn bread to substitute the bread I didn't want. Everything was delicious but my brisket was a little bit dry. The manager was walking... More
