We had the brisket hot dog which was different than any other dog we’ve had & very good. The pulled chicken was tender had a unique BBQ flavor. The brisket was moist and tender but not as flavorful.

I ordered ribs and chicken using GrubHub for delivery, due to COVID19. The ribs were very dry, the mac & cheese tasted "can-made", the chicken was moist and the cole slaw was terrific. So-so meal for $22 for one person. I wouldn't recommend.

Nice place. Nearly empty. Didn't expect cafeteria style. Service people were friendly and accommodating. Food was not really good. Mac and cheese dry and old tasting. Corn mixture the same. I guess food had been sitting there awhile. Food served on trays on waxed paper....BBQ tough and dry. Probably won't return as there are better bbq places. Maybe it was just a bad day/time to go.More

We have many BBQ options in Tampa but this is one of our go-tos. My wife and I used to get the Pitmasters Combo but for some reason they took it off (staff was even surprised). So we generally get three meats, two sides and...the jalapeno cornbread and its more than enough for the two of us.More

I had dinner here with a friend. I got the pulled chicken and was surprised it seemed a bit greasy. Usually pulled chicken is not fatty. I did like their coleslaw, crispy and fresh tasting. The southern green beans were pretty good. I wish the...chairs were a bit more comfortable, their are metal and hard. My friend did like his mac and cheese side dish also.More

WE recently ate at the Carrollwood location twice and neither time was outstanding. I ordered brisket, not too dry or tooo fatty and what I got was drive out beef with no moisture at all. Fried had to be re cooked because they weren't done....I have eaten at their various locations and sometimes they pass the mark and others they just don not.More

This place is so awesome! Great Food is just one of the many reasons to visit this restaurant. It’s has a fun upbeat vibe. The entire place is super clean. The staff is welcoming and so accommodating. The sweet shop, just a must visit.

We have eaten here a few times and try something different each time. The baked beans are by far the best I have had anywhere. The pulled chicken is also delicious and was quickly gobbled up by my granddaughters who are usually very picky eaters....They also loved the macaroni and cheese. A great plus is that the food is ready to go and you just order and pick up cafeteria style.More

4 Rivers is normally closed on Sundays, but they decided to open today (Sunday) to raise money for the Bahamas. I'm vegetarian but I came with my family. So busy! But everyone was super friendly and willing to help, even though this is normally their...day off. My porto sandwich was surprisingly good and the mac and cheese was yummy. I would come back for their food and hospitality. *all proceeds from all locations is going to hurricane relief.More

This casual eatery has food ready to go. The pulled pork was delicious! We particularly liked the house sweet barbecue sauce with it. We found the brisket to be a bit fatty. The only side dish we had was the sweet potato casserole, and it...was awesome. We didn't order any desert, but they all looked tasty.More
