Over the years, John Rivers carefully curated and perfected the best BBQ techniques from around the globe, from Memphis Pulled Pork to Kansas City Burnt Ends, fall off the bone St. Louis Barbeque Ribs to California Tri-Tip and the absolute best Smoked Chicken and Wings anywhere. However, 4 Rivers’ must-try signature Smoked Texas-style Brisket is what put the family barbecue restaurant on the map. The philosophy behind Pitmaster Rivers’ Smoked Meats is in taking the time to get it right. Every single time.
After you decide on your meats, pick how you want it: in a heaping sandwich, sample them as sliders, get yourself a Cuban Sandwich, some BBQ Street Tacos, the amazing BBQ Quesadillas, try the Brontosaurus Beef Rib, or simply just get your favorite BBQ by the pound.
BBQ Sauce is a touchy subject to some and 4 Rivers adds to the debate with our award-winning sauces. Try the Signature 4R Sauce, Hot 4R Signature Sauce or 4R Mustard BBQ Sauce. You can skip the debate altogether and just order the BBQ Chicken with White BBQ Sauce. However, if you are a bbq purist and just can’t seem to bring yourself to sauce our delectable smoked meats, we get it…but do at least try it on some french fries.
We take the same approach to our homestyle sides at 4 Rivers as we do with our award-winning BBQ. Seeking, testing and improving upon the best of the best recipes for down home southern favorites like Potato Salad, Baked Cheese Grits, BBQ Beans, Mac & Cheese, Collards, Coleslaw, Sweet Potato Casserole, Fried Okra, Smokehouse Corn, Biscuits, and Cornbread.
For the little ones, there’s a kids menu and there are even Vegetarian options like our popular Smoked Portobello Sandwich, delicious Vegetable Quesadillas, or southern favorite Veggies ‘N Grits. There are also a ton of gluten-free options. Just ask.
Do not miss the Sweet Shop! You may be full after your meal, but pick up some to take with you. We bake fresh items daily like cake balls, dessert bars, cakes, seasonal cupcakes, bread pudding made from scratch with Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Bananas Foster, Fried Oreos, or try our chocolate cake sundae humbly titled “Chocolate Awesomeness.”
Every day we’re working hard to be the best BBQ in Coral Springs in Broward County, on University Drive, just south of NW 34th Street, near Royal Palm Blvd and next door to The Walk on University. A short drive from Parkland, Margate, North Lauderdale, Tamarac, or Coconut Creek, we’re just a few minutes off Florida’s Turnpike (Exit 69) for a quick bite on your way through town.
Order ahead for quick takeout, dine in with us for a casual dining experience, get delivery through your favorite provider, or let us cater your next event. Whatever the case, 4 Rivers delivers the best BBQ available however you want it.
