This is easily the best restaurant in the area. The barbeque is great and so is the atmosphere. This restaurant stacks up well to nice BBQ restaurants in much larger cities. Highly recommended!

We eat at Rivertown quite often and it's always very good. The Rivertowne 1/2 salad is more than enough for most people and the whole one will easily feed two. The fried pickles are great for starters. I love the ribs and sometimes they're All You Can Eat! The specials are always a good value. Prime Rib on Friday night is fantastic. If you don't get there early, you get to wait but it's worth it.

Just when I thought Mom's house was the best place in town to eat, this place gave her competition. Very tasty; you won't b let down here. Portion size is good and the taste, delightful! Great BBQ sauce!

Very rude hostess, service was pathetic, and food tasted like the beef had soured (old). Owner/operator wanted to give us a cobbler to make up for the dissatisfaction. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!

This is a stop we make if at all possible when in town visiting family. GET HERE EARLY, and even then you may have to wait, but boy is it worth it! Ribs are magnificent, pulled pork is a close second and their sauce is one of a kind. A very family friendly environment and staff will treat you to the best bbq in the River Valley. From personal experience, the possum gravy is excellent after a long day of traveling! Oh, and you will be surrounded by hillbillies, but that is the Ozark school mascot and Hillbilly Pride Runs Deep!
