Awesome BBQ!

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

Family in town and I needed a reservation for 10 in Roswell. I had not been to Swallow in years and saw they take reservations for parties of 10 or more. Everything was fine until we arrived at 7:03 and the female hostess told us she would get us "set up". There was a very large table open in a... More

They give you the most delicious barbecue, cooked right there , everything fresh, delicious sides, and desserts. Great place to take the family, or go with friends. Spacious, clean, and the food is absolutely delicious. Worth a visit ! Different from the "average" barbecue place, in that the meat is cooked to perfection, you choose at the table which barbecue...

For years we loved TSATH. Wow, the pork was always tender,the sides huge and delicious. But over the years the food has slowly changed. The sides seem smaller. We have to send our chopped pork back every time because of the gristle. But....we love the sauces and up until last visit we loved the banana pudding! We really should have... More

I have been going to the Swallow for many years and have seen it go from great to so-so. The only reason I would go back now is for the portabello mushroom sandwich or the fried green tomatoes. That says a lot.

I have enjoyed many meals here. I do believe that pricey are a bit too high. You do receive large portion for meals. The sides portion needs to be increase. Sides are priced entirely too high for the amount you receive. I enjoy the potato salad and collar greens.
