The brisket is wonderful at 4R! I also tried their new broccoli salad which was very good. The service is always fast and everyone is super friendly. Don't forget to check out the sweets!

Chain restaurants supposed to offer uniformity and consistency. Today, this 4Rivers was a letdown but still satisfying. Here's why. After a morning of kayaking and in need of BBQ, this 4Rivers seemed the best/nearest option. We (4 of us) walked in around noon and placed our orders. Two in the party loved their beef brisked (which I have enjoyed at... More

Family of six - all chose different menu items. Beef brisket tacos, pulled pork and chicken. The meats were tender and smoked well and there was a nice variety of sides to choose from. The mac and cheese is good comfort food, the greens however were a bit odd to me because they were cooked with something sweet added. Not... More

4 Rivers Smokehouse has become a phenomenon in Central Florida, and rightfully so. This BBQ is amazing. The line may be long if you go during the lunch hour or between 5:30 - 6:30 pm but don't let that keep you from experiencing the delicious food waiting beyond the line. I haven't had anything that I didn't like. Not only... More

Good flavor and quality if food. I feel they are a little over priced for how it is served. There are other choices in the area worth same quality of food which are easier on the wallet.

Great place for a meal. If you want white linen napkins and deferential table service - drive on, bye. Food was good and we came away tooo-stuffed-to-jump with a "doggie" bag. Cost $26 for two. No room for dessert We returned this August after our first visit in February. Staff were friendly. Ambiance of a roadhouse not a restaurant -... More

The food is tasty, but there's just something hoity toity about the way it's priced, presented and processed. Also, some of the meat is processed and shredded into a strange, fine texture that's slightly off-putting.
