4 Rivers Smokehouse Gainesville was the fifth Smokehouse and the first 4R to debut in a college town and one of the first counter-service casual dining BBQ restaurants in Gainesville. Visited by locals and UF students, the Gainesville 4 Rivers has become a staple in the community for the best BBQ in Gainesville. It’s located on Archer Road, just down the road from the University of Florida campus, in Butler Plaza.

Originally founded in Winter Park, FL in 2009, 4 Rivers Smokehouse has opened numerous locations but still remains the same family-owned business specializing in slow-smoked barbecue, homestyle sides, and fresh bakery items in a family-friendly casual dining environment. The same delicious BBQ can be enjoyed at your special event with the help of our 4 Rivers catering team.
