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!

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.
