Went here with friends who live in Winter Park and the line out the door was the first indication we hit the jackpot- there were 7 of us who quickly got through the line, got our fabulous food and enjoyed the atmosphere, friendly staff and food a plenty from ribs and brisket to shredded chicken with mac and cheese and...

Four Rivers is a Winter Park institution for delicious food and a great price. My personal favorite is the chopped chicken sandwich that comes with two sides. I can recommend he baked beans, cheese grits, green beans and sweet potato casserole. Their sweet tea is also something that brings back memories of my Grandma. Most often, we get take out... More

Smells great at first approach, looks hometown like. Food looked yummy & the choices were too many. So we decided to sample many. Delish beyond belief.

There is no better BBQ anywhere. My burnt ends sandwich had just the right amount of crispy ends and succulent, moist brisket with just the right amount of smoke on it. The people there serving and caring for you are the best ever.

Brisket sandwich couldn't be better: Beefy flavor with just-a-hint of BBQ sauce and smoke. I made a mistake, big time, with the 2 "Home style" sides: BBQ beans oversweet in a watery sauce; crinkle-cut french fries (previously frozen product). Home style, my foot! Modified cafeteria style - you go through a line past the food, and the servers assemble your... More

We are glad to read that you enjoyed our Signature Brisket, but quite disappointed to read that the side were lackluster, the service was not up to standards and the environment was too noisy.

Heard lots of great things about this place and we finally got a chance to visit. The long line was not worth the wait. The pulled pork meat in the sandwich as well as the burnt tips were cold. Guess I was expecting food off the grill/ smoker and sitting in warmers to be somewhat hot....silly me. I ordered the... More

Came to 4R on a Saturday night in Mid September. I Had been told by a few that this was THE place for BBQ. I was not disappointed. I opted to share the 'Pitmaster Combo' option with my uncle and it hit the spot! Epic flavours and the smoke was on another level. I love a traditional Texas style BBQ... More

Met family members at this location. Did not realize it did not have wait staff. With 6 in our party, it was easier for 2 to stand in line to place orders for everyone while the others saved table space and seats. The food is well worth this hassle, but next time we'll place a takeaway order. The brisket can't... More

As a transplanted Texan, I pined for good Texas BBQ for many years. My family has been fans of 4Rivers since they opened. This is real Texas BBQ. I especially love the "burnt ends", and the brisket. Don't waste your time on fries, try the corn, the bacon-wrapped jalapeños, the greens or beans. If you love Texas BBQ, or ever... More
