The reviews are mostly great, maybe it was just my timing. I saw the brisket, it looked great, juicy, meaty all in one, but when I ordered it, he starts cutting from the other end. There was just the very tip of the thick slice that had any wetness to it. I was very disappointed. I also ordered a side... More

I am a HUGE rib and BBQ fan. I've had many ribs in many different places but this hands down is definitely top three of the places I've been. The set-up of the restaurant is very informal, and I love that. Your meal comes on a tray and you sort yourself out with cutlery etc. Love it. I ordered the... More

I usually always get pork but I tried the chicken. It was perfect. My husband got the smoke turkey it was really good too. All the sides are good especially the sweet potato casserole, you do not need desert after you order that. Hmmm I am craving it now. 😍To the owners please put one in NSB we need a... More

This is definitely worth the trip. If you like beef ribs try the brontosaurus rib. Big and fall off the bone tender. The bread pudding is made with Krispy Kreme donuts, which means fantastic. Can't pick a favorite because everything is incredibly great.

Very generous portions with plenty to choose from. Don't let the line out the door scare you away it moves very fast! It is out the door everyday for a reason...this BBQ is very tasty, not too much smoke flavor but just right. Don't get me started on the bakery selection! Any cookie, cake or cupcake flavor you can imagine.... More

Four Rivers offers BBQ that is well prepared and some excellent Southern sides. The jalapeño cornbread is amazing. I prefer the pulled pork, brisket is ok but the pork excels.

We went - based on the reviews here so I don't want anyone else to be surprised. Before ordering, I asked - how lean the Burnt Ends are at the order counter and was told that they are pretty lean but he didn't sound convincing. So to be safe I didn't order burnt ends and ordered the Brisket- it is... More

Good Afternoon beannie7, Thank you for reaching out and sharing about you and your husband’s visit to our Smokehouse. We apologize that our team wasn’t able to guide you more specifically in what meats are leaner and really find something you like. Our brisket is served lean and moist and upon request we are more than happy to trim any... More

I'm never disappointed here. That is all. Brisket, pulled pork, sides are all great. Desserts are also to be experienced.

4Rivers has earned its place in the national debate of "who has the best BBQ?" and in fact answers that question convincingly. I starve myself prior to a meal here so I can take it all in. The meats are amazing, the authentic sides just like the traditional ingredients and recipes require and end with a sweet note like the... More
