This is "top tier" for fast casual in Winter Park. Great choices, great service, and great food. And don't forget dessert. Not fancy just fun. You must go!

Very casual place and the lines can get long to order, but it’s worth it! Brisket and burnt ends are the best and all of their sides are true, southern cooking! Closed on Sundays and respect that!

Love 4 Rivers! Their brisket is out of sight! Haven't found anything that isn't really, really good. But the brisket is my favorite! Great flavor, great taste! Don't leave without dessert! It may be a smokehouse but the desserts are outstanding.

They have an outside area that is separate, but it would be really hot in the summer!! There isn't a side room inside.

Travel time was about 30 minutes going. We took alternate route back using GPS to avoid the I-4 construction and the time difference was not enough to be of concern.
