I've been here a few times in the last few years! It's always good..but be advised...it gets packed! I think it's best to go at a kind of 'off' hour...IE) dinner at 5:30

Still in the area on business. This spot was recommended by a good friend. No frills atmosphere but definitely comfortable and casual. My waitress, Liz was friendly and helpful regarding suggestions. I ordered the platter and selected the chopped pork, a slice of the homemade wheat toast (biscuit or Texas toast were other options), potato salad and coleslaw. The vinegar-style... More

The AC was barely working and our poor waitress was sweating soooo much (literally dripping wet). I felt so bad for her but also have to admit, it was kinda gross considering she was serving food. They had a fan going that patrons and even our waitress would stand in front of to try and cool off. Despite the heat... More

I'd heard about this place for several years. We were in the area and decided to stop for dinner. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the generous reviews. BBQ was just okay. Helpings are large. The Brunswick stew was filled with potatoes and the mac & cheese were not what we were used to. Cole slaw and potato salad... More

Tasty and flavorful extremely larger than normal sides. Rich texture and superbly seasoned. My ribs were slightly chared. I did not send them back because it took a long time to get my food and the restaurant was empty; besides I was famished.

We went there with friends from Roswell. Great BBQ. We had the beef ribs which were so tender they were like a (good) pot roast. Service was great. While I don't usually focus on things like this in reviews, the bathrooms were spotless and really nice!

This was my second time at this restaurant. The last time was 13yrs ago as they had the same singing group there and it was a special anniversary to celebrate our first date. I was impressed with the customer service especially at a BBQ restaurant. They were nice and courteous, timely, and helpful. They did a great job getting us... More

This is an upscale barbecue restaurant. Definitely not a fast food BBQ place. Food is well prepared, and a bit extra. Sides are also very good, and not the run of the mill usual.

Not much of an ambiance, still welcoming and clean. Decent service. Ribs very good, the salad spectacular. No wine. I do recommend, best ribs in town. Skip the new place that just opened on Canton street. Smaller portions and more expensive...can't go wrong eating at the swallow at the hollow!

Nothing fancy here. Not the building, not the furniture, not the silverware, not the dishes, not even the wait staff... However, the chopped pork was very good, the Mac n Cheese was great. A rough diamond in the rough. Would visit again.

Thank Bobby H
