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

New location at 8317 S Western has been open for a short time. Larger facilities--bright and clean. Food is as good as ever. Pulled pork, sausage, sweet cream corn--all excellent. Service is SLOW!!!!! There is no self-serve of anything--sauce, drinks, refills, ice-cream, etc. Waitstaff brings everything. Makes me feel very guilty if I don't tip accordingly. The set-up at Dickey's... More

For starters, I have always enjoyed the BBQ at Swadley's, but I will never dine at any of their locations again. Though you order at a counter, it is a bit misleading whether you should tip or not because it is not a full service restaurant. With that being said, after dining at their newest location off S. Western for... More

They have moved into a beautiful new location on S. Western Ave, a little north of old address. Had never ate at their restaurant before, saw sign for grand opening. Great service, great prices and fantastic BBQ!
