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

Based upon word of mouth suggestions, we had a meal with our family. Food only 7 out of 10, not especially impressed with the prime rib - overcooked, dry and barely warm. I should have the brisket, but I prefer prime rib. Also, somewhat expensive for a family of 6.

It's been some time since I've written a review on a restaurant here. Visited 4Rivers in Winter Garden last evening at the prompting of many friends. Many have said, as many reviews here, it's the best they've had. Well, my experience, sad to say, wasn't as stellar. Here's the facts (of our opinion;-) First, you may be surprised when you... More

I can't visit Orlando without coming here. And everyone that I take with me becomes an avid fan. This is such a good restaurant. You will not leave hungry or dissatisfied!

The best barbecue brisket! Great sauces on the table , awesome sides, especially the corn and bake beans! we also tried the St. Louis beef ribs and they were amazing. Melted off the bone ! I almost forgot, the peanut butter Reece's dessert was amazing. Great barbecue place and we'll be back.

John Rivers has crafted some fine rubs and sauces. I've not been disappointed by any of my messy briskets, bacon wrapped sides, slathered ribs, pulled pork/chicken, etc.. The Fried Okra is seasoned and delectable (same seasoning on their fries, yum), and their Collard Greens are some of the best I've had. You must split an order of the bacon wrapped... More

Not much to say about what is without any doubts IF not the best one of the best places for BBQ. Organized, fresh, clean, straight forward and simply amazing proteins, sides, beverages and desserts. Home Run all the way. Chef Rivers got it down to perfection. Enjoy! Pete!

So I HIGHLY recommend their catering for... More

My friend and I had our special Christmas Lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the laid back environment. Signature Angus Beef Brisket Sandwich so tender and tasty ! Pork sandwich was just as good. Sandwiches come with 2 sides. Lots of choices: bbq beans, bread pudding, corn bread and several more I don't remember !
