This place was recommended to us and i'm so pleased it was!
Without a doubt the best smokehouse i've been to - the 'brisket' was out of this world and the 'burnt ends' def one of my new favourite things. The servers were so friendly and really helpful. they even offer 'lean' or 'regular' brisket so everyone is happy. Unfortunately it was quite a drive from where we were staying so didn't get to go back but its first on my list when we return on our next holiday. Woudl def recommend getting there early as by the time we left the queue was well out the door 9which only shows how good it is). Although in my opinion its worth the wait so if you turn up and there is a queue so get in line!!

As others have stated there is a queue but it moves quickly. However people in the queue seem very happy to talk to each other. Good choice of food and served on a paper place mat on a tray. Not glamorous, but the food speaks for itself, everything had its own taste and various sauces on the table and good portion sizes. Genuine smokey favour and gorgeous moist brisket, good portion of fries (could have been slightly better) and quick and friendly service. Don't wear your best shirt and as a relaxed place ideal and good fun.

The BBQ was awesome here, but the place is very small and was overcrowded...a great thing for the business, not so much the customers. They do provide lots of outdoor seating as well though.

The side dishes offered with this excellent BBQ make this an outstanding option. Not run-of-the-mill in any way, they offer an exciting addition to your meal.

I first ate the fantastic BBQ from 4 Rivers Smokehouse when I was at a fancy 'garden party' to benefit the Pine Castle Women's Club. So when 4 Rivers Smokehouse came to my west side of Orlando, I wanted to try the food on location. But the line in the evening wraps around the building. . . a tribute to the restaurant's reputation. So when i was coming back from a trip I stopped for a 4 p.m. meal. And the flavor was was so marinated/smoked into the tender meat. Great!
