So we were visiting Alpharetta GA and Roswell is like the next town over. So we got hungry and google mapped BBQ restaurants in the area. This place showed up and we liked the name, so we decided to try. We passed it the first time around. It's a small shack looking place and the sign isn't too visible from... More

Stopped here while visiting friends. We got a table promptly, drink orders taken. No mention of specials by our wait staff. Ordered from menu--we all had the same thing--brisket, fried green tomatoes and slaw. The food was good; however, the tomatoes did not have the beautiful brown crust as pictures on this site. They were good however. The slaw was... More

The BBQ is very good here, but those Fried Green Tomatoes are to die for! We could make a meal just out of them!

This place was just ok in my opinion. I've had worse but I've also had better. I was not into the Mac and cheese at all. This is the south so I go in expecting at least some good Mac and cheese!! I don't see myself returning to this place.

I've tried multiple bbq restaurants in the area since moving to Roswell, and have found them all lacking. I kept hearing about Swallow at the Hollow, so I finally decided to try it and am so glad that I did. The portions are massive and the food is delicious! I had chopped pork on SatH's housemade Texas toast and Brunswick... More

Our family enjoyed the outdoor dining that this place had to offer. The bbq meats were great...smoked sausage, ribs, brisket..yummo! The greater more hidden gem about this place are the pies!! Had I known how amazing the pies were I would have not ordered so much lunch. Great food...will visit again.bn

We always look forward to dinner at Swallow at the Hollow. Their ribs are the best around and the side items are just as good. Love the down home atmosphere.
