4 Rivers Smokehouse was created by John Rivers who culminated the best BBQ styles and techniques from around the world and perfected them over many years. From St. Louis styled Barbecue Ribs to authentic Kansas City Burnt Ends, Memphis quality Pulled Pork to Tri-Tip as good as any in California, the best Smoked Chicken and Wings to the 4 Rivers Signature Texas-styled Smoked Brisket, and at this location only, fried chicken from The COOP, 4 Rivers has maintained a philosophy of taking the time to get it right.
Have it your way as a heaping sandwich, sample them all as sliders, get a Cuban Sandwich, Street Style Tacos, BBQ Quesadillas, a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, or get your favorite BBQ by the Pound. Or get a Cobb Salad to go with or without smoked chicken.
Breakfast at 4 Rivers Smokehouse Downtown Orlando includes menu items from The COOP such as Pancakes, French Toast, Omelets, Breakfast Burritos, Breakfast Sandwiches and Biscuits and Gravy.
4 Rivers takes the same approach with our award-winning BBQ as with our sides, curating, testing and improving upon the best possible recipes for homestyle southern favorites like BBQ Beans, Mac & Cheese, Coleslaw, Potato Salad, Baked Cheese Grits, Sweet Potato Casserole, Cornbread, Biscuits, Collards, Fried Okra, and Corn on the Cob, including Vegetarian options like Vegetable Quesadillas, a Smoked Portobello Sandwich, and Veggies ‘N Grits. Sides are not a side though at 4 Rivers.
Leave room for desserts from the Sweet Shop too like seasonal cupcakes, cakes, cake balls, dessert bars, or bread pudding made from scratch with real Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Downtown Orlando’s Orange Avenue is the main street of this once sleepy town where the original architecture from the turn of last century and the skyscrapers combine to create a blossoming skyline. With the courthouse on one end and city hall on the other, Orange Avenue has long been coveted office space, however new residential buildings have transformed the downtown area. Where once there was a daytime crowd and a decidedly nighttime crowd for bars and events, the neighborhood’s new residents have changed the face of Downtown Orlando.
