A bit off the beaten path, but always a fun and festive place to have a company holiday party! There is plenty of parking and can accommodate large groups with good food and good service. Brisket, sausage, turkey....all good and large portions for those capable of eating it all! Worth the drive.

Fantastic BBQ. We went for a family of 12 dinner. They were on top of things. Nice place to relax & visit with your dinner guest.

I love their ribs, potato salad and dirty rice! Cobbler is a bonus and brownie blast will put you in a coma! The best ever!

First visit the service & food were good, however my second visit was during peak hours & wait times were long so requested the order to go. I will not choose this option again due to a messed up order & long wait times.

We have been going to the Swinging Door since we moved to the area! Their menu is printed on a copier and contains only what they do best. Bar B Que and a few sides. One of our favorites is the smoke turkey always moist and tender and delicious!! The brisket is right at the top of delightful! You can... More

This BBQ is OK. The sauce is very sweet which is probably why the locals rave about this place. I can never remember when this place is open so I am glad I live only a mile from there. I would say that it's over priced for the amount of food you get.

I used to eat at this restaurant regularly. Unfortunately, I have had more than one BAD experience, & I will NEVER go back. Last time I called in an order for pick up to bring home for a family gathering (about $150 order). When I got back in my car, I checked & found that they generously gave me TWO... More

It was my first time here, although I've heard about this restaurant for awhile. My children and se friends love it, so I finally went there with my son. The Brisket and turkey are delicious, and the potato salad was as well. The atmosphere is very casual and staff is very friendly. Will definitely return!

A legend in BBQ. To the point that there's a helipad in the back for downtowners to come have lunch. Great dance hall. Fabulous Czech sausage, ribs and oh my brisket. Best cole slaw around. Beans too. Ok and potato salad. That's about the whole menu. Maybe grab a 3 lb baked potato w chopped sausage on top and split... More
