This was "hole in the wall" good BBQ in a nice sit down restaurant. Our family of 7 ordered the "family picnic" I think it was called. Our food came fast it was wonderful. We even loved it later warmed up in the hotel room. Would definitely go back.

This is apparently a popular place in Oklahoma City. You order and pay at the counter, and they bring your food to you. The food arrived in short order, and it was good. I was not particularly fond of the seasoning in the potato salad, and the beans I ordered, though advertised as sweet, seemed overly so. One bonus is... More

Quick and good food. It is quick service and quick to delivery your good. Smoked meat at it's best. My wife and I eat there 3-4 times each month.

I had a good lunch today having chicken fried steak, sides, drink, and ice cream cone. The restaurant is new and nice, the order taker pleasant, the waitress courteous. All was good until later in the evening when I had dysentery. Just a guess, the ice cream or condiments may be the culprit as the steak was fried, okra fried,... More

I attended an organization retreat in Oklahoma City. We had a productive meeting. We had a working lunch. We ate Swadley’s BBQ. It was my first time. The menu includes hickory-smoked briskets, chicken, and pulled pork. There were a variety of sides like baked beans, green beans, and cole slaws. My favorite was the peach cobbler. I just longed for... More

We've been all over the US and we've tasted all kinds of BBQ. Swadley's happens to hit our taste buds perfect. I like to have a little meat with my sauce, so the sauce is my focus and the meat follows closely. My wife has a loaded spud and I have a BBQ turkey sandwich. The manager came by to... More

Top notch BBQ sauce and country style sides; ribs were very fatty; but overall superb food and service for the price
