Fried Chicken... It's not on the menu, they get their fried chicken from their sister restaurant across the street. Very delicious!

I have been wanting to eat here for a long time. I had heard so many good things about it. So my husband and I stopped in for lunch yesterday. We both had the chopped pork plate and the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. We thought the fried green tomatoes could have used more seasoning. We found them to... More

Friends of ours took us here when we were in town visiting. I'm not a big fan of pork, but this is THE best pulled pork around! Everyone else in my group ordered the half-rack of ribs, and were raving about how they were the best. Absolutely recommend visiting! The food is incredible, and atmosphere is really cute, and the...

This is one of my favorite places for a night out in the Atlanta area. I love the live music, the beer and the BBQ.

At the recommendation of a friend, we decided to give Swallow at the Hollow a try. We set the GPS and headed out down a side street in Roswell we had never even noticed. When the GPS said we had arrived, sure enough, there was a wood and metal roofed building home to this restaurant. Without GPS we probably would... More

This place is a well kept secret. The BBQ here is amazing and it's the kind of place where they give you like 6 different BBQ sauce options right there at the table. I highly recommend this place for a good gorge.

very good food - liked the sausage especially. Parking can be tight and the wait is a little long. the restaurant has a bar, but can be crowded and hard to initially get served. Overall, I liked the food and the waiter was very helpful.

Maybe it is just a preference. I know a lot of people love it here. But, I don't get it. The meat is OK..plenty moist but does not have the smokey flavor I prefer. The sauce just tastes bland to me. No spice, no heat, no flavor. Sorry, I don't get it. That said, the service is good, the atmosphere... More

We met a friend here on a Saturday night. Get there early...a line will form after 6:00. The building looks like a run down shack with few or no windows so it was with great surprise we entered to find a busy restaurant with a small bar area. Our party of four enjoyed pulled pork, ribs and sausage. Coleslaw was... More
