Swadleys certainly gives you enough food. You will not be hungry if you eat here. The Texas Toast is really good. BBQ is good. THe sides are not that special, but they are ok. Try it out!

The service is very good. You order your food at the counter then sit down and the waiter/waitress does the rest. There are lots of options and everything is good. The atmosphere is good and you won't be disappointed that you went there.

This is a partial wait on yourself restaurant. Order at the counter then choose a table. Waitstaff will bring your order and drink. Barbecue is very good and so are the sides. Locally owned, closed on Sunday.

Tried it because it was close to our hotel and hit the jackpot for taste/location/price. Food is delicious, portions are generous without being ridiculous and the staff was great. Had the Catfish Dinner and Smoked Chicken and would love to try the other items next time around.
