4 Rivers was delicious Texas style BBQ that's slow roasted and served with your choice of sauces. There are plenty of options to choose from such as burnt ends, pulled pork, chicken, etc. The sides are a little higher end than most traditional joints with fried pickles, stuffed jalapeños, smoked corn, and more. With a wide assortment of delectable temptations... More

Visited for an early afternoon lunch. I had my mind set on the pulled pork sandwich until I saw how dry it looked. When they pulled out a new brisket, I ordered that. It was delicious but it, too was dry. The bun was an ordinary plain hamburger bun...they can do better. The barbecue beans were delicious, but only slightly... More

We've been to 4 Rivers several times, each time trying something different, in the hopes of finding out what all the hype is about and why there are lines everyday. Is it the Cheerwine soda, which is delicious?? It isn't that the food isn't good, but if I'm going to pay $8-10 for a sandwich and fries I'd like a... More

We have eaten in 4 rivers before in Winter park so delighted to find one in Winter Garden. This isn't a restaurant for a romantic dinner but great food at a great price for a quick bite. You order your food at a counter and it's piled onto a tray then you find a seat. There is a good choice... More

I like the basic BBQ and some of the sandwich offerings but not a big fan of the sides. Most of the sides are cafeteria style, pre-cooked (like the grits) and are probably OK but none that I would recommend. They have a lot of good looking deserts but that not what I go to a BBQ place to eat.... More

We checked into what Trip Advisor had to say about BBQ places in Orlando. Being a big city there are a lot of places to choose from. Hands down, it's one of the best BBQ pits we have visited. It's a chow hall style eating atmosphere which was a little concerning at first. I was starving and when we arrived... More

The food here is great - not really one for vegetarians but if you like meat there is a great choice and the casual atmosphere is good, especially if you are in a hurry as you can eat and run.

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
