Riverfront Barbeque not only has great food but their Russian Lemonade is sooooo good! I've never been disappointed with this place!

Just had ribs for supper here and they were great! Had tried the pulled pork awhile back, and loved it, but tonight we felt like ribs. They were just fantastic - big, meaty, and not dripping in sauce. Just out of the smoker, they had a nice, spicy/smoky, slightly crunchy exterior and the perfect not-falling-apart meat. They have all kinds... More

Spent the weekend in Augusta for my sons college bowling tournament. Checked out Riverfronts menu and were excited to give it a try. Met with friendly staff. And seated within minutes. Food was outstanding and had a very helpful waiter. Very pleased and will point anyone headed to this area in Riverfronts direction. Spent a wonderful dinner with our son... More

A quiet Sunday lunch with good music and an enjoyable atmosphere with the high tin ceilings. Brisket with homemade sauce was excellent as were the cornbread and coleslaw. The latter not too wet and thinly grated -- so fine. My husband enjoyed the pulled pork.

I have eaten at many barbeque places in Texas, small shacks to fancy restaurants and Riverfront is as good as any I have eaten. Had the Double Plate - chicken and brisket on a roll with Cole slaw and beans. The sauce on the table is really good, a bit of a kick but well worth it. The service was... More

If you have eaten Memphis BBQ-Riverfront is the place! As soon as you open the front door the aroma makes you hungry. The crab cake and hush puppies were the apps that got us going. There was a good selection of Maine brews available-you need to add a Geaghans beer. For our meals my son and I had the double... More

Ate her recently as a couple and had the mixed BBQ platter. It was all pre-cooked. Nothing was made to order and it was shredded and very dry. Not anything like real BBQ. It also didn't help that the restaurant was filled with angry women who were dining there after participating in election result protests. Really ruined what was already... More

This place has awesome BBQ. Loved the onion rings, baked beans have chunks of pork in them and taste great. Cornbread was excellent, meat fell off the bone on the ribs and excellent flavor. 1/4 chicken and sausage plate was great! Waitress was on point and very nice. We would definitely come here again!
