I enjoy eating here, many GF options and the staff will change gloves if you ask. All bbq sauces are gluten free, however no dedicated fryer. The food is excellent, cheese grits are delicious. GF items were clearly marked on a old take out menu I have but currently listed in store. For vegetarians and vegans they do offer beyond meat as a protein choice.

I told the employee who took my order that I cannot have gluten and they had a whole binder of what is gluten free which was pretty awesome. He walked me through some suggestions and checked with the cook as far as fries goes(that was a no go) but still great customer service. Offered gf bun which was amazing!

I got sick after eating here. I don't find they care too much at any of the 4Rivers locations. Gluten free doesn't matter if you don't handle with care!

Staff change their gloves if you ask. I’ve eaten here multiple times without getting sick. All bbq sauces are GF & heavenly! I recommend the cheese grits as a side.

Coming from a celiac who used to work here. I would not eat anything cross contamination is a HUGE issue, even if they change their gloves, all the meats have come into contact with bread. All sides made in the back come into contact with the biscuit station with flour everywhere. Also allergen list is completely false. Some meats ie tritip and prime rib are brined in soy sauce. Allergen list is not accurate at all. Just be aware. I wouldn't eat here safely. Insider knowledge

My lovely sister brought me takeout. We shared brisket, collard greens, roasted jalapenos, sweet potatoes, green beans and corn. It was all wonderful. The brisket was juicy and tender, and the sides were all good. My only complaint was that it seemed a little salty, and I would have loved something to put out the mouth fire... They did have GF cookies already made as well.

I absolutely love the fact that I can get GF chicken wings at 4R because they are smoked not fried. Also I love the smoked sausage. Basically all of their meats and sauces are naturally GF & their staff is knowledgable. They also have a GF cookie, but you have to call 48 hours in advance to have them bake it for you and who plans that far ahead? But overall, I am a big fan of 4R. You can read my entire GF review of 4Rivers on my blog: http://www.celiacinorlando.com/2013/4rivers/

This is some of the best BBQ ever, anywhere. The sauces are the weakest link. But, they are GF. The line is long and worth the wait. Order as much as you can afford and go hog wild. We usually spend 37ish for 2. Yelp it for more opinions. GF options are plentiful. They have an allergen menu on their website.

I like a good brisket. They don't have it here. It is pasty.

Really good food. Asked if the sauces were GF and she didn’t know, but referred me to the allergen section of their website.

This was my first experience at 4 Rivers, and I must say I was pretty impressed! I notified the staff that I had a gluten allergy and although it was not marked on the menu, they pulled out the nutrition facts list which indicated the items that were gluten free. Surprisingly, almost everything was gluten free! I ordered the pulled pork platter, which comes with 3 sides. They allowed me to select an additional side in place of a dinner roll / cornbread since I could not eat it. The food was delicious and the environment was pretty cool. Definitely recommend for gluten free BBQ! I’ll be back for sure!

Amazing food! The staff are beyond careful and so well trained on cross contamination. Their brisket, sweet potatoes, and cheese grits are so good. I order the: SIX SHOOTER Cheese grits topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, pickles, jalapeños and 4R Signature Sauce to create the perfect blend of sweet and savory. Highly recommend if you love BBQ!

My wife is a celiac and extremely gluten sensitive. We have eaten here weekly for months and she has never had a problem! The servers change their gloves prior to getting her food and it all works well!
