I saw a show on PBS of 10 best bbq joints in Atlanta, Ga and this was one of them. I read the rave reviews on Trip Advisor and took the family for a dinner out. The location is a quaint rustic cabin in old town Roswell just off the hustle and bustle main drag. Nuthin fancy here but it's... More

One of my favorite local flavor places. Informal great food. Sometimes I just go alone for the chocolate pudding pie.

They have outstanding Bar-Be-Que with terrific melt in your mouth ribs. Great atmosphere, live music, beer by the buckets, good banana pudding.

Have visited this restaurant several times. Great atmosphere. The ribs are very good, along with all the sides and bread. Beware of the chopped pork. It is very fatty. A lot of wasted meat left on the plate, especially for the women. Men eat anything. I even looked around at other tables and noticed the same thing.

Swallow at the Hollow is a unique, very comfortable in a backwoods downhome kind of way. Nothing fancy, the aroma of real wood hickory smoke, slow roasted ribs, pork shoulder and baked bread fills the air. Yes they even have beef (is that really BBQ, I guess if you're coming from Texas ;-) ). If you're vegetarian they have something... More

Super casual atmosphere as you would expect. Service is both friendly and quick. Beware however that the smells that surround you before your food arrives will make your mouth water...and it should. The ribs are outstandingly good. Pulled pork is right up there. I've never eaten any other meat there so can't tell you anything about that. But you also... More

I have been going to Swallow for a long time. One of my favorite places to eat ribs in Atlanta. The sides are also great especially the Brunswick stew, fried green tomatoes and baked squash(when in season).

This place remains one of the most consistent and best places to eat in Roswell. Never a bad meal. Only complaint - they give you TOO much food and its so good you want to eat it all - but get a box and carry it home. Well priced and a good variety of food.
