The brisket here is in the top 3 that I have ever tasted, and that includes time in KC and Dallas......the pitmaster is an artist, the Q was moist, tender, and wonderfully smoked.........had a nice hard layer from the rub.......and the burnt ends, were not incinerated....but true to their name........the sides were good, but nothing special.....the hidden treat is the attached bakery.......save you calories for a desert treat, which they have selected choices as u go thru the line.........
The service was efficient, and we went at prime lunch hour......but there was a short wait, their staff was alert to keep the tables cleaned as patrons left....the have outside seating, but it was a 90+ Florida day, so we sat inside
Will definately return!

If you haven’t made a trip to 4 Rivers, click the map and drive on over now. The food is excellent, the people are friendly and the prices are good. Try the brisket moist with extra bark, you won’t be disappointed. Their baked good are as pleasing to the eye as to the stomach. Definitely get the dessert.

This is the best BBQ option in Central Florida. Finding decent burnt ends outside Kansas City is difficult but these are fantastic. Well cooked but still moist and well seasoned. The signature and hot sauce are equally good compliments to the meat. The smoked jalapeño are back wrapped and very sweet. Really a good meal

This is one of the many restaurants I like to visit when I'm in Altamonte Springs. My sister turned me on to this place and any time I'm in town we head over for a great lunch or dinner. The barbeque and side dishes are very good and the desserts are fantastic!

This is the place people brag on constantly in Central Florida and for good reason. This Texas Barbecue spot specializing in Brisket typically has a line out the door at all of their locations. The menu is top to bottom delicious and includes a wide range of tasty side items. Calorie counters need not apply. Start with a Brisket Sandwich to sample 4R at its quintessential best.
