Look what just rolled into Disney Springs… the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck!
Currently taking up residence in the Disney Springs Marketplace, the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck is a new venture for the 4R Restaurant Group (home to the popular 4 Rivers Smokehouses in the Orlando area).
While Food Trucks are not new to Disney Springs, the 4R Cantina is the first non-Disney owned Food Truck to be regularly based in Disney Springs.
The 4 Rivers Smokehouses are well known in the area for serving up barbecue. However, 4 Rivers founder John Rivers shared the story behind the Food Truck’s cuisine. When Disney Springs approached Rivers with the idea of a partnership, it was understood that barbecue could not be the focus since The Polite Pig — operated by James and Julie Petrakis who are also known for their presence in the Orlando food scene — already serves up barbecue in Disney Springs.
So, Rivers was inspired to learn more about barbacoa, which takes traditional barbecue and layers it with Mexican flavors. Hence, the 4R Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck!
