We had not been to this location in over a year. John Rivers has done a fabulous remodel here. The BBQ we just had was outstanding. My wife loved the 6 shooter & my pulled pork was outstanding. Thanks

Great place for when you have a bbq hankering. The burnt tips, brisket and pulled pork are delicious! We were told that all of their desserts and breads are made in-house. The restaurant is always clean. Friendly staff.

The food is very good and the location is great. The restaurant enclosed the outside area for bad weather and hot days but has the ability to open if for those times when you can eat outside. Highly recommend.

They really have slow smoked meats. This is the real deal. No "throw on some sauce and call it BBQ " for 4-Rivers. You can smell the smoke when you get out of your car. Plenty of sides to choose from, beer & wine too....More
