Swallow at the Hollow

Very good BBQ. Usually pretty crowded on weekend nights. May have 30+ minute wait. Very good pulled pork. Like on salads. Ribs are good but a little pricey. Like to walk around Roswell after dinner. Fun town.

Freindly atmosphere and great food. Real BBQ at a fair price. Will be back for Babyback ribs and Blue Moon draft.

Went with 3 couples on a Friday at about 1:30. Lots of tables available. We had been warned that the potions here are huge so we all shared pork platters. Very tasty! We chose Brunswick stew and collard greens as sides and both were delish! The mac and cheese got rave reviews also. If I lived close by I'd be... More

This had been a favorite when we lived in Alpharetta We recently returned from LA and couldn't wait to return. We had 4 adults and 2 kids with us. The Brunswick Stew and Mac and Cheese were fabulous, unfortunately the Ribs, Sliced brisket and chopped pork were all chalk dry devoid of any moisture. Only out done by an defensive... More

The Swallow is a local fixture that's a sister property to Greenwood's on Green Street. (hint: you can order the same pies). The Barbecue is decent, but not amazing, and a bit over-priced. But it's an experience worth having.

When we crave barbeque, this is the place we go!! Love the food and there are choices for everyone (if you want something other than bbq).

THe atmosphere is very rustic which I liked but Swallow used to have live music which has been gone for awhile. I think that might have been the attractions. The ribs were ok but... More

I seldom get past the chopped pork anything but have also had the smoked chicken and smoked portabello mushroom. All have been very good. Three sauces. Pies come from across the street at Greenwoods on Green Street (who owns both restaurants)

Large portions, moist chopped pork, excellent macaroni and cheese with friendly service! Great part of town and cute rustic style. Loved the open kitchen, everything was very clean and professional.
