The award-winning 4 Rivers Restaurant Group will launch its newest concept in late August with the opening of its 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck located in the Marketplace at Disney Springs.
4 Rivers Smokehouse currently has 15 operating locations spanning the state of Florida and recently opened their first location in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to online ordering, the Smokehouse also has a catering food truck that can be spotted in and around the Central Florida area
The eatery will debut a variety of new signature dishes, including a Taco Cone and Burrito Bowl filled with choice of meats such as Brisket Barbacoa or Pork Sofrito and standout vegetarian options like the Squash Blossom Burrito. Brand new desserts will also be available such as Dulce De Leche Churro Balls.
“It’s an honour to open the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck at Disney Springs in the company of so many talented chefs and award-winning restaurants,” said John Rivers, 4 Rivers Restaurant Group Founder and CEO.
“Our first-ever daily 4R offering at Disney Springs will provide an opportunity for tourists to savour an authentic local brand. It will also give Floridians who know and love our food an all-new 4R experience and chance to enjoy dishes that are not currently available at any of our 4 Rivers Smokehouses.
Inspired by his recent culinary adventures in Mexico City, Rivers has developed the food truck’s barbacoa-style menu. Dishes will feature signature 4R meats such as brisket and pulled pork but prepared using traditional barbacoa techniques – methods with roots in the Caribbean and ultimately perfected in Mexico.
The 4R Cantina Barbacoa menu has been crafted with the same pride and passion that has earned 4 Rivers Smokehouses some of the culinary world’s highest accolades, including recently being named “America’s Best Barbecue Chain” by The Daily Meal.
The 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck at Disney Springs will be the only 4 Rivers location to offer service seven days a week – including Sunday. All net proceeds from sales every Sunday will support The 4R Foundation, which in 2017 helped more than 950 local schools, churches and charitable organizations.
