I think some folks feel that unless their meat is smothered in a sauce it's not bbq. Not true: 4 Rivers uses a great tasting marinade to make the meat super tender and give it just a little "tang". The slow smoke cooking does the rest. Fall-off-the-bone or piled-high delicious, it's unique in Central Florida. Price is more mid-range than... More

Came in after seeing manatees at the springs for our first visit. Customer service was absolutely flawless and the restaurant was extremely clean. My wife and I shared a pit master combo with brisket, burnt ends, spare ribs and pulled pork. I would say that the spare ribs were ok, the brisket and burnt ends were pretty good, but the... More

Nice clean, well prepared bbq, nice sides. Sit on some park benches with other folk after waiting in line for your food! Never been disappointed!

My husband and I went with our daughter and her husband. The pulled pork and chicken, turkey sausage and the brisket were very good. The sides we had, fried okra, sweet potato casserole, mac and cheese, green beans, were also very tasty. We sat outside and ate at the picnic tables. The only issue was the ordering. The people at...

Starting off in a old gas station on Fairbanks Ave in Winter Park, this location is one of a slowly growing chain of bbq restaurants around Orlando. Even though they are known for their brisket, I tried their pulled pork and was not disappointed. They give you a heaping amount of the pork along with a great bun. I got... More

We met here for the second time with our book club. This time we ate outside because it is a little hard to hear inside. We like the big tables and the great food and service. I had the Texas Destroyer. It had brisket, onion rings, jalapeños, melted provolone on a bun with 4 Rivers signature sauce. It was not... More

Let's be real about this. 4Rivers... is....AWESOME! When you consider all of the BBQ joints in Florida there really are some good ones, but so far in my quest for delicious BBQ I have found the holy grail! It is what I compare all other competitors too because they deliver consistent, amazing food. It's not just the main dish that... More

The brisket is wonderful at 4R! I also tried their new broccoli salad which was very good. The service is always fast and everyone is super friendly. Don't forget to check out the sweets!

Chain restaurants supposed to offer uniformity and consistency. Today, this 4Rivers was a letdown but still satisfying. Here's why. After a morning of kayaking and in need of BBQ, this 4Rivers seemed the best/nearest option. We (4 of us) walked in around noon and placed our orders. Two in the party loved their beef brisked (which I have enjoyed at... More
