worth the wait

you almost always will encounter long lines but they go fairly quickly and the food is well worth it. always fresh and delicious. additionally I respect that they stay closed on Sundays.

We thoroughly enjoyed our barbequed beef brisket, mac & cheese, roasted corn and country green beans. Every item was excellent. We arrived at six and had a small wait, but by the time we had our food the line was out the door.

The food is pretty good. We go here regularly, but it's not worth the hype. There is usually a ridiculous line and seating inside is very limited. There are at least 2 better BBQ places nearby.

This is a restaurant that has a great following but it seems like more hype than substance. The food was good but not great. the sides were very good and a wide variety. The sauces, again; were very good but not great. I didn't see any reason to wait in the line out of the door for the barbecue served... More

Unbelievable. Don't wait until you are "in the mood" for Barbecue. This place will give you a whole new outlook on it. You've gotta try the Bacon Wrapped Smoked Jalapeño's. They are not spicy or hot, just delicious. The brisket is perfection, the pulled pork is to die for. It's all good!

Poorly smoked meats soaked in an even more poorly excuse for BBQ sauce. The people that like this have either never actually eaten real smoked meats, or any real BBQ for that matter, or are just Lemmings in fear of offending their friends, by actually having an opinion of their own. 4 RIVERS SMOKEHOUSE is no more than an overpriced,...

This was a wonderful experience. Good food- some of the best BBQ I've ever had. Portions are large but they wisely provide you with the ability to package it yourself and bring the leftovers home. Interesting variety of gourmet sodas.

We visit often, and it is always fantastic! They have multiple locations throughout FL, but Winter Garden is our favorite. I always have pulled pork, but we have tried brisket, sausage, sandwiches, salads, etc., and everything is fantastic! Go hungry, because portions are huge! We also like to sit near their sweet shop, because it is so pretty to look... More
