First Visit was Fantastic!

My son had always said we needed to try it, and we were so glad we did!! The line was out the door, but moved quickly!! I had to hand it to them right off because they expected crowds of people and kindly installed mist fans outside for FL summer heat. They do indeed get crowds of people!! They... read more

The meat is served on a thin piece of waxed paper which easily tears and one ends up eating off the tray. Poor way to serve. Brisket is good but dry. Sides are good. Very busy place.

4 Rivers has some of the most amazing bbq. No wonder it's always packed. We made sure to arrive during non-peak hours to fully enjoy the total experience and we were not left out. The food is exceptional from the ribs to the mac n cheese it's delicious and the staff is great.

Saw this place on a promo video for Orlando on Virgin Atlantic and thought, right up my street! Went in and was very pleasantly surprised on the selection of food available Ordered the brontosaurus rib and just about managed to finish it! Very well cooked and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Visited 4Rivers at the Winter Park location on Fairbanks and was pleased with the food quality. Ordered the beef rib, sausage, and brisket, which came with three sides. I chose the greens, baked beans, and bread pudding. The beef rib was a little dry, popping off the bone easily. But it retained enough moisture and tenderness to offer up a... More

If you're looking for a family friendly BBQ with the real feel of a smokehouse don't miss this place. They're constantly busy and don't have enough seating for the amount of people piling but you can sit with anyone, family style eating. I had the pulled chicken and it was probably the best thing I've ever eaten. The chicken is... More

This has to be a new must in Orlando as it gives an authentic taste of America in a relaxed style with food quality at the heart. We had a takeaway as the queue was fairly long. Quality was outstanding and hit the spot before going to Sanford Airport.
