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.

I really enjoyed the sides here. Potato salad, beans, biscuit were all great. I would come just for these sides. The mac and cheese had too much rose mary for me. The chopped pork was good but the brisket was weak. I did not like any of the 3 house sauces. We actually took the meat to go once we... More

If you are looking for genuine barbeque in a fun atmosphere this is the place. Located on a side street in Roswell, you would walk right past, unless someone told you the secret of this place. We started off with the fried green tomatoe appetizers and an assorted bread basket. Not sure which was better, the tomatoes or the homemade... More

Good barbecue, but the side orders really take the cake! The best mac and cheese in the world. Period. We sometimes got just for the biscuits and honey. The Fried Green Tomato and portabella mushroom sandwich is amazing, but rich. Even the pickles are good.
