ImageThat’s what I call the people in Orlando that are loyal to one, and only one, particular style of barbecue. Most of you know that barbecue afficionados will tell you that barbecue differs from region to region. Depending on where you live, is the style of barbecue you will swear by. That’s what makes this one so unique. 4Rivers is a Texas style smokehouse here in Orlando that opened it’s doors in 2009 in Winter Park, Florida, and like what you would expect from fans of a rock band, these barbecue lovers all have their I love 4Rivers bumber sticker on their cars. I’m not talking about a few I mean hundreds of them. They put this sticker not so much as an advertisement but more like a statement their making, a “food cult” if you will.  It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. It’s professing a love for something in the way of barbecue and you want everyone to know you love it. Now John Rivers has a number of 4Rivers locations and is still growing. I mean this is going to be big I can feel it.  If you think he couldn’t top this he’s just opened The Coop a southern affair, also in Winter Park. Everything you love about old southern food and with him behind this well…     I just don’t have any words. yes I do, “it’s a roller coaster for you taste buds”.ImageImage
