Great service

Service is very fast and friendly. I especially liked their cream corn and the sausage. The sliced beef and smoked chicken we're also good. Lots of choices on barbecue sauce. I love barbecue and am pretty picky so that is why four instead of five on rating.

Swadleys BBQ is a famous family-owned chain of restaurants in the greater OKC metro area. The newest location on S. Western Ave. in OKC was our destination to meet friends after church. Even though it was "rush hour" (Sunday at 1:00 p.m.), we got right in with immediate seating for a table of 5 people. No sooner than we had... More

Stopped here for lunch because I was told they had the best Bar-B-Q chicken, well it was good, but not great. I have had better. I ordered the double meat and was surprised when my meal came out, because it looked like a single serving. I even questioned the server and they confirmed it was a double meat portion, so... More

I am a large man and can put away some food. I have to say the sampler was not only extremely delicious, but well priced, and I got plenty of food. Sampled all of the BBQ sauces and must say I enjoyed them all for there unique flavors and what they brought to the food. The ham was just a... More

Food was very good, service was very good, and atmosphere was your typical BBQ place. Enjoyed my visit here, and would definitely return for more, if ever in the area. I do recommend this place for some good BBQ.

It took a little over a year for my wife to try this place. She had the idea that it was just like all the other garbage BBQ chains that our out there. This place is different!! First off this particular location on Western is really nice the decor takes you to a farm like setting. The smell as soon... More

Swadleys new location on South Western is very nice and clean. Service was fast and friendly. I loved the baked potato, green beans and the fried okra. However, the smoked chicken and brisket were not that great, very dry. Also was overpriced for what I got.

It has been my experience that barbeque can be overpriced. Too often I walk into a BBQ restaurant expecting to pay more for a meal than it is really worth. I was pleasantly surprised by my lunch experience at Swadleys. My wife, brother in law and sister in law, stopped by Swadleys for a Saturday lunch. I got the Country... More
