I’ve been a few times, but everything always tastes so sweet to me. I’m not sure if everything is sweetened, but it definitely has a sugary taste to almost everything I’ve eaten there. I really want to love it, but it just hits the mark...More

I am usually not a BBQ fan but 4 Rivers made a fan out of me. The Messy Pig was an explosion of flavor in my mouth. With pork, cole slaw, pickles, and jalapeños on a sweet bun it was the perfect amount of sweet...More
