4 Rivers Food Truck coming to Disney Springs Marketplace

The hugely popular Central Florida restaurant group 4 Rivers is coming to Disney Springs later this month with a new food truck offering.

Inspired by the culinary culture of Mexico City, the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck boasts a barbacoa-style menu with dishes including Taco Cones and Burrito Bowls.

These items are filled with signature 4 Rivers meats such as brisket and pulled pork, but prepared using barbacoa techniques.

The food truck will also offer standout vegetarian options like the Squash Blossom Burrito. Desserts will include Dulce de Leche Churro Balls.

“It’s an honor 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, 4R Restaurant Group Founder and CEO. “Our first-ever daily 4R offering at Disney Springs will provide an opportunity for tourists to savor 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.

The opening of this Mexican-inspired barbacoa eatery marks the first time a 4R location will be available to guests at Disney Springs. 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. Following in the philanthropic footprints of the 4R “Barbecue Ministry,” 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. All other 4 Rivers Smokehouse locations will remain closed on Sundays.

Look for the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck between World of Disney and Ghirardelli later in August 2018.

4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck opens today at Disney Springs

This is just one too many levels of artificiality for me - and I like the Springs. The food trucks are really just an affectation at Disney Springs. I am sure the food is fine but the re-creation of this feature from an actual city is just too cute for me. And another thing - can anyone else not sit through the in-room Disney Springs video for the same reason. It’s a completely inorganic place attempting to establish a sense of place. The slow motion families gazing around in wonder. The carefully selected friend groups having fun - and always with one guy wearing a porkpie hat - you know - because he is a character. Sorry I must have gone off my meds today.🙂

Disney Springs replicates the gentrification of many downtowns which has a side-effect of pushing out smaller local business owners, so a shiny new food truck coming in there fits right in! :)
