Been to swadley's of Mustang,OK several times and never had a bad meal. I love how you can see the smoke ring in the meat and you can taste the smokey flavor. The staff is always trying to please you.oh! Did I tell you about the free ice cream after the meal.

We stopped to order some bbq to go. First time visiting Swadley's. Quick service. They ran out of chicken...then turkey, so I ordered the brisket and sausage meal. Son had the turkey sandwich and hubby had the pulled pork. We thought it was the best bbq we've had in OKC. Hubby said the mashed potatoes were great. Son loved the... More

I'm a huge fan of Swadley's due to their BBQ Turkey which is hard to find. They have a spicy sauce that's tops. The service was over the top. Staff kept our drinks full and everyone had a great upbeat attitude. The tornado hit a few signals south and they were still in top notch working order. See ya next... More

Swadleys is a very average BBQ restaurant and a chain to boot. This is not one of the top restaurants in Oklahoma City. However, the brisket is pretty decent. In addition the place always seems dirty to me, I hate it when a restroom isn't kept clean. I would never take an out of town guest to this restaurant.

My ratings show that I loved this place. My. 90 year old aunt assured me that this place has the best barbeque and indeed, it was amazing. I had the pulled pork and it was perfect . If you like creamed corn, they have the best. The green beans were great, too. The salad bar was fresh and tasty. They... More

Old west surroundings with friendly wait staff and quick service. The meat is good with lots of choices in the sauce from mild, sweet, and spicy. Sides not so well.

We absolutely love Swadley's. The food is most delicious and they serve real barbecue using good cuts of meat. The quality of the food is always consistent. Also, there is a wide variety of food choices on the menu. You could eat there more than once in a week and not get tired of it. The service is always top... More

We were looking for a local BBQ place and this place was recommended by a co-worker. Went with a group of 6. The food was excellent. The portions were large and very tasty. The chicken fried steak looked awesome and was the size of the plate. The fried okra was excellent as well. The Ultimate sandwich was huge! They have... More

I persoally think it is overpriced , and just average. Some people at the office love it. I like Earls Rib Palace much better.
