Great Food Reasonably Priced

Delicious food, casual atmosphere. You may share a table with strangers as it is set us with long tables and you seat yourself. We often will carry out. The only negative is the long lines waiting to order.

Everybody talks about 4 Rivers as if it the best BBQ around. Don't get me wrong it is good but not even one of the top 2 in the area. The day I was there the brisket was dry and the pulled pork on the tough side. The flavor is good and their sauces also rate a 3 out of... More

Love the atmosphere and eating outdoors-don't mind serving myself. Limited on my choices there. Would be great if they had a lunch portion. The desserts are unbelievable! Be prepared, you never know when the line will be streaming out the door.

It is exactly what it should be. Rustic but clean, great food - friendly atmosphere. Brisket is very good.

We used to live in the Longwood/Altamonte area and first tried 4 Rivers when that location opened. It was shiny and new and had lots of indoor seating. When we moved to Winter Garden and tried the "established" location there, it just didn't have the same feel to it. The food was probably just as good, we just didn't enjoy... More

We tried to eat here last night and the line and crowd looked so long. We decided to try again today. After a wonderful bike ride, we stopped here around 4:30. It was not busy. The food.....brisket and pulled pork dinners with three sides was great! The sides cole slaw, Mac n cheese, collards, beans are all excellent choices. The... More

Excellent BBQ, creative sides, quick service, good price, but you are either eating at a combined table with others, in a cramped space, or outside next to a busy road (Hwy 50) I recommend the takeout and avoid the bad location/dining experience.

First of all my wife and I know absolutely nothing about BBQ. We know we both like those ribs at the Chinese restaurants but somehow I think that is nothing like Texas style smokehouse food. So a few nights ago we decided to go with a couple who are very knowledgeable, almost experts. The reviews on Trip Advisor made 4... More

Arrived there around 4:30. The place was almost empty so ordering was a breeze. We got three platters: brisket, very good, pulled pork, delicious and half rack of ribs, moist and tasty. They were accompanied by three sides each: we chose ocra, green beans, collard greens, cole slaw, baked beans and Mac & cheese. The total bill was about $50... More

WoW! This place is busy on a Saturday night! I was appreciative that there was a menu board outside by the main entrance so that I could figure out what to order while I stood in line. Very comfortable place, no need to dress up it's BBQ folks! A wide variety of menu items. I opted to share a bowl... More
