The food is simply mouth watering, BBQ at it's finest. The portions are so plentiful that they have a station with takeout containers by the soda fountains . I have tried so many dishes and I keep going back for more. My favorite is the burnt ends, just writing about it makes me wan't to go eat there now. The... More

The best BBQ in the Orlando area. I think its one of the best I've bern to anywhere in the South East. They have a wonderful selection of beef, pork, chicken, turkey served how you like it. There are many sides to choose from. If you like BBQ check this place out

Without a doubt 4 Rivers Smokehouse is the best BBQ in town!.The Brisket is the best and does just melt in your mouth. All the sides are cooked to perfection, and toghert it all makes for a fantastic meal. Go later in the day betwen lunch and dinner, as there is always a line at the peak times.

Spoiled living in SoCal with every kind of food and cooking style that beats so many other regions for choice. BBQ is a weak spot with most places in SoCal not even close to the south and the options for BBQ. Going to Orlando for short trips to visit family means a 4 Rivers brisket fix. Was a huge fan...

It is expensive bbq. Meat is fine but sides are ridiculously small portions and desserts for the price they charge. Plus it is stand in line to place order and go get your own drinks and food...no way I will pay 40 bucks again with no wait staff to even refill my drinks. I ate in old one and in... More

I've had a lot of BBQ living in the south and traveling all over the USA. I've learned not to touch BBQ north of Tennessee. While I do enjoy different venues, 4Rivers has never let me down. The taste, preparation, and the quality is always the same and it is incredible. I almost always order it by the weight and... More

Had the Rooter with a Tooter sandwich. It has, well, everything on it with two awesome signature sauces. Amazing! Mac and cheese and Krispy Cream bread pudding are to die for.

This place has really great BBQ but the line to get in can be very long (it's cafeteria style to get your food). Best bet is to call in a take out order and just take it home with you. Don't forget to ask for several containers of sauce if you buy a half or whole pound. We used 10... More

We always order the full slab of ribs. Comes with two sides and corn bread. It's slow cooked do it's always tender and fall off the bone. We go to the Winter Park location but I think there are other locations as well. Atmosphere is loud and seating is picnic like tables. Food is great.
