Truth is I prefer Carolina BBQ over any other, but in Orlando, Jacksonville and Gainesville, I see no reason to go anywhere else for Texas style smoked meats. I love the sliders because I can get three different meats and always have enough left overs for another meal or two. My favorite side is the fried ocra. I do wish... More

All I can say is simple - if you want good barbecue, done the right way, go here instead of the other places around. Not that the others are bad, just that 4 Rivers is so much better! Great easy going atmosphere (don't go here if you're looking for a quiet, romantic meal - it's just not that kind of... More

I tried giving this restaurant a chance at 3 different places; the original, Longwood, and the new original on Fairbanks. All three failed; the original on service and food, the Longwood on service and food, and the new Fairbanks, just on food. Frankly, Costco has better pulled pork in their Kirkland brand. What I got for burnt ends I still... More

Went for the first time after being told this was the best BBQ in the area. Yes it was! We had the brisket & pulled chicken plater. The sides of Mac & Cheese, green beans, & bread pudding was the best. A return is in the future.

We've all had good - even great - BBQ. And we have our favorite BBQ joints. This is by far my new favorite. We had 4 RIvers while visiting friends in Orlando and it was so good, we had it two days in a row. Let me preface my review with this - I think it's easy to find BBQ... More

This is not a BBQ place, it is what it says a smokehouse. There is a difference. Yes they serve pulled meats and provide you with BBQ sauces however, it is not a BBQ place. You walk in to an almost cafeteria type food line and you just run down what you want. The line outside can get pretty long... More

Took a short drive from our DisneyWorld resort to the restaurant in Winter Park. Totally worth it. Everything was perfectly delicious. Can't say enough. I was worried about it not being a sit down get waited on kind of place but no worries once I arrived. Very organized and the smells.........oh my. I ordered the Texas Destroyer. Wow. So happy.

This quick-serve BBQ restaurant has every base covered from their pulled pork, to brisket, and loads of sides. And the friendly, casual environment really makes it a welcoming place to be in too. Open space and lots of natural light really brighten up the room full of extra large wooden benches and southern style decor on the walls. The homestyle... More

We love 4Rivers and everything it stands for. We are big fans of the owner and love that every staff member is extremely courteous; the line may be ridiculous ALL the time but they get you through quickly and with a smile on. We love the brisket and burnt ends the best; the Texas stack (something like that) is delicious.... More
