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.

I've lived in their area for a long time but for some reason, probably the location, I keep forgetting that it's here. Stopped by for lunch yesterday and it was excellent. Huge portions and great service. Everything we had was perfectly cooked and delicious. Nice beer selection as well.

I never thought of myself as a BBQ lover and this was the last restaurant in Roswell my wife and I selected to complete the Canton Street (or in an alley in back of Canton Street) eateries. I ordered the half rack and my wife had the Portabello BBQ sandwich. With the two generous sides you get with the order,... More

I love BBQ, but honestly, and despite all my friends loving the place, I thought it was average. Also, the servings for kids are way too much unless you are raising horses - in essence, you end up paying for more than you need.

Great BBQ, nice portion size and selection. Music is entertaining. Staff is very friendly. We've been there with a large party and just a couple and they are always able to accommodate us. Highly recommend this place.

The Swallow is a great place for a meal - come hungry and they won't disappoint. You'll enjoy high quality meat - quite tasty - and good side items (generous portions). I personally recommend chopped pork as a winner. Only trick is that the sauce is not for everyone. I get it. I happen to love the place, but that... More

We enjoyed our meal; I'm not a big bar-b-q fan so I had smoked chicken that was very good. I enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, had never had them before but my sister said they were very good and she has had them several different places. Everyone else had bar-b-q and they all enjoyed it. I tried the sauces on... More
