I'm in Ozark, AR 3 to 4 times a year on business, I always make it a point catch at least one meal at Rivertowne BBQ. They have a good variety on the menu and usually a special. Food is always good and the service friendly.

Comfy food. Friendly, right size portions. Great ribs with brown sugar dipping sauce. Decent prices. Large S&H stamp sign in front. Nostalgic atmosphere. Family oriented.

Food was excellent! Our watress was super rude. We could not figure out why. I am always aware of my attitude and treat others the way I want to be treated. We think it may be because we shared. Not sure.

Drove to town to give this place a try. Right in the middle of town and a good size building. Friendly service, ordered chopped brisket sandwich, four (huge) ribs with two sides and lemonade. Very good and very filling. We still can't get used to buying a custom smoked sandwich for under $7.
