Large parties with reservations beware

Family in town and I needed a reservation for 10 in Roswell. I had not been to Swallow in years and saw they take reservations for parties of 10 or more. Everything was fine until we arrived at 7:03 and the female hostess told us she would get us "set up". There was a very large table open in... read more

They give you the most delicious barbecue, cooked right there , everything fresh, delicious sides, and desserts. Great place to take the family, or go with friends. Spacious, clean, and the food is absolutely delicious. Worth a visit ! Different from the "average" barbecue place, in that the meat is cooked to perfection, you choose at the table which barbecue...

For years we loved TSATH. Wow, the pork was always tender,the sides huge and delicious. But over the years the food has slowly changed. The sides seem smaller. We have to send our chopped pork back every time because of the gristle. But....we love the sauces and up until last visit we loved the banana pudding! We really should have... More

I have been going to the Swallow for many years and have seen it go from great to so-so. The only reason I would go back now is for the portabello mushroom sandwich or the fried green tomatoes. That says a lot.

I have enjoyed many meals here. I do believe that pricey are a bit too high. You do receive large portion for meals. The sides portion needs to be increase. Sides are priced entirely too high for the amount you receive. I enjoy the potato salad and collar greens.

Enjoy the food. Portions are huge and looks like a classic bar-b-que restautant. Would highly recommend the pork sandwich. Pulled.

Tender juicy, and half was the right amount. Made one mistake however..I ordered the... More

Out of everything I tried here, I thought the chicken wings were the best. The meat was smoked and covered with a BBQ sauce that had enough of a kick to satisfy your desire for "hot wings". I also tried the collard greens (overcooked and too sweet, in my opinion), the mac and cheese (good but VERY thick/sticky), the ribs... More

Our friends brought us here because of the ribs, the beef, and the pork dishes available. They were simply done and very good. There are many sides to choose from as well. I found the cole slaw to be excellent. The fried green tomatoes were very good as well. Watch out for the desserts. They are deathly good and quite... More
