Nice surprise for us

This was our 1st visit and it certainly won't be our last. This place has a sister restaurant across the street called Greenwoods and we decided which ever could seat us first is where we were going to eat. We did this knowing that you can order off of either menu and each place. The sweet... read more

Always so delicious and really great service despite running low/out of a few items. The baby backs were so tender and the potato salad best I've had! Don't miss the Mac and cheese, the burnt parts are the best!

This is one of our go-to places for barbecue. Love their chopped pork and baby back ribs. Their side salad is SO good - homemade dressing, local mixed greens, lots of veggies, and diced smoked gouda. Also love their homemade breads and chocolate chip cookie banana pudding. Good cold sweet tea and beer. You can sit indoors or out. This... More

I had the sliced pork platter, a buttery, flaky biscuit with honey, and 2 incredible sides: mac and cheese (which I use as the standard... More

We have gone to the Swallow for years and loved it, but after having dinner there a few nights ago, I don't think we will go back. The pork was dry and worse than that, there was a lot of gristle in the meat. That is not the quality that we are used to from the Swallow. The sides were... More

We've never had a bad meal here, and we've tried almost everything on the menu. The homemade pickles (ask for them) are just wonderful, as is the homemade bread. The barbecue is outstanding, never fatty, with great sauce. The live music can be a little loud, but it's usually very good. We say go!

We enjoyed our meal. The food was good and prices were reasonable. I don't know if the reviews have is high hopes but it wasn't as fantastic as we were hoping for. We will most likely go again if we're in the hood.

This was my first real Southern BBQ and it was fantastic. The venue is a blast and the food was delish!
