4 Rivers Smokehouse Daytona is Open
It's open! Barbecue lovers and 4 Rivers fans in Volusia County can rejoice! The beloved barbecue chain opened its latest location at Daytona Beach's One Daytona, across from the Daytona International Speedway.
After several minutes of wandering down the trail off CR 42, east of DeLand on the Lake County side of the river, the cars that can be heard fade into the distance. Slowly, another world begins to emerge. This world of Old Florida was lost in time due to the advances of society, but traces remain of what was once a bustling society.
The DeLand community lost a pillar on January 31, 2020. Leslie "Gus" Gibbs passed away in his sleep that night. The 76-year-old was known for his retail store retail clothing store, Gibbs for Men, a formal wear store that was open for 40 years in Downtown DeLand. The store closed on January 31, 2018, but it was there that Gibbs became a friend to the community with his friendly customer service.
