4 Rivers Atlanta BBQ

Full-Service Catering

It might surprise some to hear the best BBQ Atlanta has to offer originated in Florida of all places. But that’s just where 4 Rivers had its humble beginnings. It didn’t take long for one store to explode into the family-owned, award-winning restaurant chain we see today. With a de-regionalized take on barbeque, 4 Rivers bucks the notion that one state knows the “right way” to smoke and serve delicious smoked meats. From St. Louis Barbecue Ribs and Texas-style Smoked Brisket to California Tri-Tip and Memphis Pulled Pork the 4 Rivers Menu spans the culinary map from East to West and North to South. Before the restaurant’s start, John Rivers traveled the country honing his taste and skills and learning varying barbecue techniques. Pitmaster Rivers pulled inspiration from all of his travels and created a menu that features the best of all BBQ worlds.

After notching 8 years of BBQ restaurant excellence and 13 Florida locations under his belt, Rivers set his sights to the north. There he found a west side firehouse in Atlanta, Georgia that was in desperate need of renovation. Located in walking distance of Georgia Tech in the Marietta Street Artery, and approximately one mile from the Georgia Aquarium, 4 Rivers Atlanta is a marvel of past and present. During the renovation, the 4 Rivers design team took great care in maintaining the original building’s integrity, while also modernizing it with all of today’s conveniences. The old fire station that used to serve the Bellwood neighborhood in northwest Atlanta now serves up delicious tender meats and sides instead, and the reviews are absolutely glowing. The same delicious BBQ you experienced dining in can be enjoyed at your special event with the help of our 4 Rivers catering team.
