Great food. Friendly and competent staff. And they let a number of us stay in the building over an hour past closing as the rain was POURING and the lightning was FLASHING. So appreciated their thoughtfulness. Highly recommended.

My favorite spot in Orlando - Signature Brisket with two sides - excellent service!

So my wife and I love this place. We went in tonight to get take home dinner. I ordered a separate order of burnt ends for our dog. When we explained we were treating him because we were going to have to put him down Friday they gave us a 50% discount ? thank you for that gesture of kindness. My wife and I really appreciate you Kelly. It made our night ❤

Only stopped by for dessert bc I ate at their other place, The Coop. I had a slice of chocolate cake & it was good (moist with good ratio of frosting to cake). My only disappointment about this location is the very limited selection of sweets, based on my experience at their University location. Not sure if they're reducing the options offered or what, but it was only like 11:45am, so timing wasn't the problem.It also seems the cake slices are a smaller than I had a few years ago. They used to give a huge slice which took two sittings to finish. Kinda disappointing... Sorry no pic, I forgot.

Went for a casual dadday daughter date.Food was great, though they were a little backed up. It's fast casual, not table service, but the chicken for my chicken and ribs combo plate was not ready and they had to bring it out.That took a while, but to compensate they brought me two, which turned into lunch the next day.Good folks.The cornbread was top notch. The fried Okra was a little too salty for me, but still great.And the meat itself was awesome.

Another great eatery here in Orlando!All the entree meats our group had, from the chicken, to the ribs, to the smoked sausage….all were delicious!On top of that, the place was clean and had an enjoyable atmosphere.Would I recommend?Indubitably!

After a 35 minute ride (Mapquest and GPS apparently were not on same page) and a 25 minute wait time to get inside, I was disappointed. Three meals and drinks was over $60+, the ribs were dry, the two sauce options were less than thrilling, the fries were overcooked, the mac and cheese tasted like Kraft. The only three things that kept this rating average were the beverage selection, the tasty bbq beans, and the smoked chicken wings. If I could do it again, I would have saved my money, gas and milage.

Decided to stop here and get some food with my older brother (@jfanhimself) and the place looks amazing, the employees are very engaged with the customers once you get to them at the line. This place reminds me of one of those restaurants Guy Fieri would visit on “Diners, Drive-ins, and dives” tv show. I had gotten Mac and cheese, mashed sweet potatoes ??, fries, and this brisket styled burger which is a tad bit salty but if you’re used to eating briskets then you’d know why. The food was amazing and service was great.

Not what it used to be! The quality of the food is fresh as always and for that I will give it two stars. The food itself is not what it used to be. They used to have more items on their menu. The prices went up and their menu is mediocre. I would've paid anything for this food a few years ago now, I will not have it. Their sides still remain very good.

Good barbecue. Got the 2x2 meal with brisket and pulled pork. The sides are good. Pro tip: get the bread pudding as a side for a dessert with the meal.

Second time I have come home after picking up take out and Im missing part of the order. Don’t bother calling, it will take 20-25 minutes, that’s if they answer. Ordered the deserts, which was half the cost of what I ordered, actually pointed to them, was charged for them but for some reason the young lady chose not to place them in my bag.Unfortunately it also wrecked my dinner because I sat on hold for 20 minutes instead of relaxing. Probably not worth the 8 mile round trip to get them, so my chicken sandwich cost me over $22.00 + tip.It’s not worth giving it a third try and needing to inspect the order. Just not going back.

YES! Vegan Barbecue! We had the Beyond Burnt Tips and wasted no time cleaning off our plates. Thought it had more of a chewy seitan texture rather than the softer pea protein texture of a Beyond Burger. Caramelized bbq sauce and Smokey flavor on them was fabulous. Additionally, when we said, "no bun" the servers offered a vegan bun substitute. And... who doesn't like fried vegan okra and fries on the side? Great meal. Put 4R and this amazing find in your rotation when you're in the 407.

4 Rivers doesn't even get a star but had to chose one to send this review! Absolute worst food for 20$. The restaurant was so cold, the fat in my brisket turned white/opaque like it wasn't even cooked. Brisket had NO smoke flavor. The BBQ sauce was watered down without flavor. The cheese bread was like a thick, square cheese blob without flavor. The beans had no flavor either. The rest of the options for sides I wouldn't consider eating. Plastic eating utensils and everything was serve yourself. Totally disappointed. No one asked if I needed anything or if I was satisfied. I will never waste my money here again. You all need to start from scratch and try again.

Fantastic food and service! Met and talked with the owner because he was walking around talking with the patrons. Super nice guy. Highly recommend and we will be back.
