The BBQ chicken at 4 Rivers is tender, seasoned well, and served in a generous portion on the platter, which comes with three sides and a biscuit, which I substituted for the delicious cornbread. The slaw was tasty and not overly sweet, but the baked...More

It is a cafe type service with long tables to enjoy your meal at and an outdoor dining space as well. The meats are slow smoked and delectable. You won't be disappointed in anything!
