4 Rivers Smokehouse is a causual dining expereince. Don't be afraid if you see the line for people ordering out the door, the line moves pretty fast. I wouldn't pick 4 Rivers over Sonny's but the Sonny's is a good distance away. I normally get the 3 sliders and my sister gets a salad and then we split them between... More

My wife and I enjoy eating at 4 Rivers. They offer pork, beef, sausage and chicken so far as the BBQ goes. Their side dishes are excellent and you have many choices. They probably have the best baked cheese grits I've ever eaten. My only complaint on the restaurant is it takes time to order and go through their ordering... More

The food is ok nothing to brag about. Seating is very limited. Understaff most of the staff act like they are scared to answer a question.

My co-workers and I go out to lunch everyday and this place used to be on our list of weekly stops. We have all noticed a decline in the quality of the food over the years and it has surpassed the value. Still good BBQ but not as good

Being from Memphis, I'm a big fan of BBQ. When it comes to Ribs, pork sandwiches and baked beans.. it's hard to beat some of the offering in Memphis. I decided to try 4 Rivers when some friends told me it would be a good place to go to compare with Memphis Ribs. While this was VERY GOOD... I still... More

Out of town visitors had to make a repeat visit to 4 Rivers. I had the brisket; my buddies sampled other items on the menu. Everything: I repeat, Everything, was delicious. No wonder there was a line going out the door.

I had the 1/4 chicken and my friend had the brisket. Both were very good and I love the sauce. Macncheese, okra were good. Not crazy about the cheese grits as they are baked and were a bit dry. The cornbread salad is our fav side. I always like places where you refill your own drinks and the sweet tea... More

My family considers this the only true bbq joint around, and for good reason. They have it all, the brisket,pork,ribs,chicken,sausage, burnt ends and then some. One dish is just as delicious as the next. We like to order a little bit of everything and share it family style. Pretty good sides too, the usual -mac and cheese, collards, salads, fried... More

If you like bbq, you've got to try this place. The men in my family LOVE the food (brisket, turkey, sausage, chili) and all love their deserts (WOW - fried oreos is a teenager favorite), their sides are great, my personal favorite is the bacon wrapped smoked jalepenos and the six shooter (grits, brisket, slaw, and jalepenos). Walk through line... More
