Sadly not as many places as you think do burnt ends. Thus place has great burnt ends. They also have good sides, and the rest of the food is good as well. Chicken and brisket is on point. I work nearby and go here frequently...More

Each time I have been there staff have been friendly and helpful with quick service. I usually get the salad with the BBQ chicken and am a big fan of the cornbread croutons.

Went looking for good barbecue and got it here. Great ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Don't miss the fried okra and other great sides. Next time I am going to go for the giant beef ribs.

Staff is amazing. Engaged and really friendly. Food is greasy, though, and literally slopped on the tray. It's tasty, but overloaded with fat and salt that you'd expect in fast food.

Yesterday was Sunday and also happened to be my birthday. I got home late and said that I'd prefer to go out for ribs "tomorrow." Well, tomorrow was tonight. We waited until 7:45 to go out to 4 Rivers because parking there is so tight....More

The food is good and there is a huge variety. I love the stuffed jalapenos. The seating is very large tables for the most part and you will likely be sitting next to people you don't know. Most of the food is very sweet so...More
