It’s a Thursday night and I’m craving some yummy BBQ – Where’s the best BBQ in Central Florida? I would have to say 4Rivers Smokehouse is by far my favorite place to get some yummy smoked goodness. Recently, 4Rivers opened a new location in Winter Garden, which is only 15 minutes down the 429 for me. Time to give their new larger location a chance to prove itself compare to their original Winter Park location. The new location in Winter Garden is inside the same plaza as one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, Taquitos Jalisco.
Phone: 407.4Rivers (474-8377)
1047 South Dillard Street
Winter Garden, FL 34787
The line is outside the door upon arrival, which is totally normal. Newbies in line are asking questions about the food, wait, and what to do next. I knew there would be a wait but luckily we got there just before the big dinner rush. Same yummy Menu as the Winter Park location! See a few of my Instagram photos below, with my choice of smoked goodness.
The line seemed to move slower than the Winter Park location. Maybe with a large number of new employees and plentiful parking for patrons at this new location added to it the line. Hopefully it will improve, since it only opened a week ago. Plenty of seating available is a huge bonus to its new location! I didn’t see anyone who couldn’t find a bench to share or a table for their entire party. I’m sure the inside seating will be a hard to come by in the summer but lots of fans with misters on the outside seating make it cool.
In other news: 4Rivers might be adding a 3rd location in Longwood, FL at the Longwood Village Shoppes old Crisper location. It’s suppose to be 4Rivers Smokehouse Plus Bakery and Butcher! Yum! But still lots up for negotiation for this to come to life anytime soon.
Peeking inside 4Rivers at all the yumminess! (is that a word?) Mom’s Sides – Desserts – Smoked Goodness!
Yes, the line is almost always outside the door (but it’s worth it every time)
My Favorite choice is the Sliders to get a good variety of all the smoked goodness!
Sliders w/ Brisket, Burnt End, and Pulled Pork
Sides: Fried Pickles & Coleslaw (was disappointed out of Mac N Cheese)
Huge slice of Red Velvet cake to share! (Maybe not share)
Are you hungry yet?
Stop by one of their location soon to get some of the best BBQ in Central Florida!
