Overall it was delicious, but a bit overpriced compared to other good BBQ places in the area. Lots of choices for meats and side orders, would recommend!!!

BBQ is my hands down favorite food. 4R Brisket is the best in town for brisket, and all their sides are outstanding!

If you like brisket than 4 Rivers is your place. Fresh BBQ food made everyday. The brisket is to die for...moist and tender. The sandwich version comes with two sides. Fairly priced and portions to fill your stomach.
