The chopped, smoked barbecue pork was great and plentiful! The sides we tried were also tasty (baked beans, potato salad, cornbread, Brunswick stew, collards and more) and definitely homemade. It was a busy Saturday lunch, with only two waitstaff, who couldn't quite keep up with everybody. Only regret was that we were too full to try the homemade banana pudding!

Very disappointed with old ribs, slaw, potato salad and rubber corn bread. Don't get the banana pudding, a lighter shad of gray. Not again......

Very good BBQ. Especially like the pork, chicken, fried okra and banana pudding. It's a regular stop for us on the way to the beach from Atlanta. You will be glad you stopped.

A wonderful local restaurant. Very casual. Hubby and I tried the ribs and chicken. The chicken was moist and the smoke flavor was just right. The ribs were melt in your mouth good. The sides dishes were excellent, seasoned well. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs. We will definitely be dining here again!

River City BBQ sits back off the road and you can miss it if you aren't paying attention. The service is excellent. The night we were there, the banana pudding had just been returned to the menu and it is awesome. The BBQ was a little dry and the potato chunks in the Brunswick Stew were a little large for...
