The quality of the food was great and the service very good. The atmosphere was like being in a farm house. The desserts were great and a variety to chose from.

This is one of my wife's favorite places. We liked the opportunity to examine the menu while waiting in line. The meals was absolutely delicious - we were thrilled by the fact there was enough variety on the menu that allowed my wife to eat despite her gluten free needs. The variety of sides was appealing and fare offered me... More

Pleased with the assortment of BBQ meats and many offerings in types of sandwiches. The chopped pork and brisket was more coarse and therefore to my liking with the outside brown available in the ""burnt ends" selection. The spare ribs were also tasty and fairly lean. The fried okra was a great side to be tried.

We visited 4 Rivers in Longwood on a Monday evening. I was a bit surprised it was a cafeteria type restaurant, but the food was fresh and good. I had the sliced beef brisket. It was some of the most tender and juicy brisket I have ever had. For sides I had beans, baked cheese grits and Smoked jalapenos. They... More

We live close to 4 Rivers and often go there for dinner. Our grandsons love 4 Rivers, and we had our youngest grandson's high school graduation luncheon there just a week ago! If you like barbecue (pulled pork or beef), you will find the food is awesome, and a lot of it too! The dessert bar is fantastic and the... More

So I could just got back from Texas and actually tasted shredded pork and shredded chicken and then I had 4 Rivers. The shredded pork was really good. The shredded chicken was hard, not sure why, but I regretted ordering the chicken. They have great desserts though, and a great iced tea.

I was expecting life-altering brisket and found just the regular kind. Portion was big enough, brisket very tender, but missed on flavor. Service was quick, value okay, I suppose.

We love 4 Rivers but living in the Lake Mary area, we have found that traveling the extra half hour to Winter Park is worth it. The food at the original (new) place seems to taste better, all around, on everything, no exceptions. So, Longwood 4R maybe OK if you do not have time to go to Winter Park.
