Even though it looks like all the locations are similar distances, this is Orlando and things are very deceiving. My suggestion is the Winter Garden location. From 192 west of Disney hop on the 429 and take it to the Rt 535 exit, then go about 2 miles north. About 20-25 minutes. Very easy to find.

From 192 down by Celebration/Kissimmee take Rt 535 north all the way to Rt. 50 in Winter Garden. About 35-40 minutes.

Not much on the menu we don't love!!
I love hearing this from a local.....just what I was hoping for. It makes me even more sure that this is the place to go. Thanks for the directions. It is closer than I thought. We will definitely be eating here!

OMG I did not read this post and JUST posted this question on this board. Do you have any idea how long it would be to drive from say I-Drive? On the map it looks like it is even closer than Celebration.

Have you been to that one? I usually worry when a place opens because the staff is new and do not have their act together.

Thanks I saw you replied to my post too! We will be staying at the Vista so that is near Sea World. I am just wondering how would you compare this to Babbalou's if you have been there? Also, I am most DEFINATELY going to this place. I am excited we go to WDW each year and are always looking for new restaurants in the area. Now I have two Yellow Dog and 4 Rivers>

BTW I looked at the website and the owner (who went to the CIA btw) looks like the guy who had a tv show ....you know the one that wrote "He's Just Not that Into You" which Oprah was pushing but I cannot remember his name. I think hs first name was GREG. Anyone know who I am talking about?

Yes...it's located in the Kirkman Oaks Shopping Center. I've been there many times and never had a bad meal.

I'm going to 4 Rivers' new location in a couple of weeks with friends from work...but I might sneak out and try it before. It's only about 20 minutes from my house.

There are moving locations so it's not really a "new" place...I'm not sure how much of the staff will be new but I'm sure they'll have their act together.

YOU know, between the Yellow Dog Eats and the 4 Rivers I am going to need a food intervention when I am down there. I think I just might try all the 4 Rivers Locations. Well maybe not my DH would do it in a heart beat but he is supposed to be on a diet. LOL I know as for my self Crestor is a beautiful thing. It amazes me how i can cheat on my diet and my cholesterol keeps going down!

we went to the one on Fairbanks do not worry when you get off the highway it looks like the restaurant is gone but you need to head 2 blocks down the street and you will see it. I suggest you go at 1:30 to avoid the lunch line although it moved quite fast. We waited about 15 minutes in line. HOnestly the ribs were to die for. The meat fell off the bone. I got the half rack and ate only 3 gave one to DH and brought home 4 (which I ate cold two days later). Do not bother with the cornbread salad but the sweet potato casserole was delicious. The biscuits are good too hefty and huge. I have one more week here so I am going back.

4 Rivers has the best BBQ. Don't bother driving all the way out to Yellow Dog Eats. It's really not worth it. It's more of a "cafeteria" without all the charm.

I'm being kind...
