Belly Buster Special

Had the belly buster special with pulled pork and coleslaw. It was fantastic and the portion size was more than enough for lunch. The BBQ is always good, but get there early or you might have trouble finding a seat.

For anyone who has not experienced 4 Rivers let me recommend,,,highly 1)potato salad (red skin with a dill pickles I think) yes! 2) Cole Slaw (chopped finely like the Colonel's but sweeter and less mayo 3) smoked wings (peppery but they are first smoked, then baked to order and finished on the grill) a lot of steps but moist and...

For me it's the best place I've ever gone to eat. Prices are a little high but they serve a lot of meat and sides. I want to go back to USA to eat at 4 Rivers again.

Be prepared, if you go during normal lunchtime, there will be a long wait, there will be problems finding parking, you will stand in line for quite a while. This hasn't changed since the first location opened. There is a reason for this: this is great food! BBQ fans have their own likes and dislikes, but 4Rivers will please most... More

Ribs at 4 Rivers were tender and juicy on the inside, with a crusty smoked layer of goodness on the outside. Everything we had was delicious! From the perfectly smoked and succulent meats, to the sides such as crispy fried okra, creamy macaroni and cheese, and golden cornbread, you couldn't ask for better bar-b-que. You have enough choices to please... More

I had assumed that with a gluten allergy AND a corn allergy that 4R would be out of the question. Turns out that the staff is VERY helpful and more than willing to bring food out of the back to avoid cross contamination. Check the website for common allergens. The food itself is UNBELIEVABLE! It's one of my first stops... More

We love "4R"....but this was our first visit to the UCF location. While the quality of the food was as excellent as ever, we felt that the portions were smaller than the Winter Park restaurant. Regardless, great bbq that is always delicious. Bakery is nice also.

I've never had a bad meal here. We eat here on a regular basis and will keep coming back for more! One of the best suggestions I can make is to order your meat by the 1/2lb or 1lb and order your sides by the board. A pound of meat and a lunch side board will cost less than 2... More

I had heard so many great reviews about this place. I've driven past the original 4 rivers and the line would be out and around the building. But the meats are nothing special and overpriced, not to mention its very loud in the building because its all wood, concrete, and metal. There's limited seating and most of it is communal,... More
