Recently had dinner with friends. Went early on a weeknight so it was not crowded. We shared the family dinner and added tips and chicken. Was waaaaaay more than we could eat. Everything was cooked to perfection. Loved the mac and cheese and all the meats. Cannot beat pork skins and pimento cheese. Could not have desert wish we did but way too full. Definitely will go back.

This review is long overdue. Charleston has a lot of great barbecue restaurants and this is our go to. We regularly visit Swig & Swine and love bringing our family with us to get some quality barbecue. The portions are big, the food is great, the price is good, the atmosphere is so relaxed and the service is killer.
We’ve sat with Tide several times now and he’s just the best. He says hi when we come in even if he isn’t our server. He recommended the burnt ends to us and even let us try a sample and we are completely sold on it. It’s now our go to order whenever we go.
Also, the pickles are delicious. I crave these things so often. They’ve actually inspired a few visits on their own.
Fully recommend to anyone.

Wow, this is truly a joy to read! We love hearing such wonderful feedback from our customers, it's why we do what we do. It's always wonderful to see a familiar face, that's why we love our regulars so much! Our pickles alone can be reason enough to stop in for a bite, it's true. Thank you for being a loyal and valued guest at Swig & Swine and for sharing this review with us. We look forward to seeing you again on many return visits!

Spending most of our adult life in South Texas, not far from Lockhart, we are official BBQ snobs. We now travel the country in our RV guided by TripAdvisor reviews which led us to S&S. Stepping inside this casual roadside restaurant the aroma of the pit prepared us for a real treat. From pig to beef to sausage, no disappointments here. A good selection of sides (including exceptional corn pudding) and local sauces including a jalapeño red were excellent. The real "secret sauce" was the outstanding service provided by Sidney. Her knowledge and advice were especially helpful. Our only regret is that we don't live closer, but anytime we come near Charleston this is where we'll stop again.

We were in Charleston for the weekend and looking for a casual restaurant for dinner. After poking around Trip Advisor, we read the reviews for Swig & Swine and knew this was the place to go. Very lively restaurant. We sat at the four-seat counter (quickest way to get seated). These seats were right next to where the staff sliced the BBQ. Made us very hungry. While we were waiting, we surprised with some samples of the BBQ to try. The table behind us was very jealous. Samples are only provided to those who sit at the counter.

I had the smoked turkey and baked bean. My wife and had the pulled pork BBQ and corn pudding. For dessert my wife had the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan pie. She said it was excellent.

The food was awesome and we will definitely be back next time we are in Charleston.

We're so glad that you got to try a variety of items from our menu. There really is nothing better than rounding out a meal of great BBQ with our Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, it's a guest favorite!

We took our 20 month old grandson for some BBQ and had a great meal at Swig & Swine. Everything was delis and it was a great choice for little ones. Great big portions so we took our dessert to go....that pecan tart was so good for breakfast !

Our goal is for no guest to ever leave hungry, so that often results in bringing home leftovers! They're the gift that keeps on giving, we think. We love that you're starting your grandson off early, he is set to become a BBQ lover in no time! Thank you for sharing this review with us, we truly appreciate it and are so glad that you enjoyed everything. We hope you'll come back and see us again soon at Swig & Swine!
