Typical American smokehouse

Very tasty, very filling and too many choices to make. The brisket is the the business. Overall a great experience.

Consistently excellent. Love the ribs and burnt ends. Stuff jalapenos with bacon are must for me as a side.

First, I love 4 Rivers in Gainesville. Never had a bad meal there. While the food was good here the portions were way off. We had a large party - 10+ people. I had a Longhorn sandwich that had almost no brisket in it & I had to wait 10 minutes after everyone else had received their food. My father... More

The BBQ was tasty. Not real impressed with the burnt ends though. Pricier than we expected. We would come back but would stick with the sandwiches.

The bread pudding, collards, green beans, fried oreos, and pulled pork were delicious. Both regular and spicy sauces were extremely good. However, the brisket was quite tough. They need to go to Texas and learn how to do it tender and right.

I chose this restaurant based on the reviews. I ordered lean brisket with a side of pulled pork. My sides were cole slaw, baked beans, fried pickles and it comes with corn bread. The brisket was very good but without the sauce it really did not have much flavor. There was no spice rub present so the meat just tasted... More

Oink Oink. We toured UCF and were starving. We started heading back to our hotel and passed 4 rivers. It looked packed (It was 12 noon on a friday). I told my family that this place looked like a winner. They did not want to go because it looked too crowded. I won…Thank goodness. This place was super busy but... More

We ordered from 4 Rivers for a work conference, and everyone was raving about how good the food was. The meal consisted of a salad, mac & cheese, beef brisket, pulled pork, and cookies. Everyone was so thrilled to have a change from the typical boxed lunch...a true win!

Had a great dinner there. I had the smoked brisket. Very tender and lean. Sauces were a great accompaniment. Good side dishes to choose from. I had baked cheese grits, mac n cheese and cornbread salad. Biscuits were big, but heavy.
