4 Rivers Smokehouse sure knows it’s BBQ and The wait is over South Tampa! 4 Rivers Smokehouse is now open at the corner or Swann & MacDill. With both patio and inside seating, 4 Rivers Smokehouse has plenty of room to accommodate everyone. If you prefer take-out, they have a convenient outside walk-up window to save you time.
The sharp decor gives a more upscale look, making it feel less like a fast-casual restaurant and more full service (thumps up for that!). The long dining table set-up seems to allow for extra seats, but it doesn’t feel crowded (another thumbs up!). Service is quick and before you know it, it’s your turn to order.
4 Rivers Smokehouse has a very impressive menu and they seem to have more selections than other BBQ joints in the area. The meats include pork, chicken, beef brisket, ribs and more. Sides are total comfort with items like collard greens, mac & cheese & fries. The dessert section looked amazing with huge cakes that would cure any sweet craving. The beef brisket comes ‘lean’ or ‘moist’. Our lean beef brisket choice was tender and full of flavor and the smoke ring was perfect. The mac & cheese is sure to be a favorite with its perfectly creamy sauce and the collard greens were tender and flavorful.
