Swallow at the Hollow

1072 Green St., Roswell

Swallow at the Hollow generates plenty of good will with its classy program of musicians from Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, but its welcoming atmosphere and tangy take on barbecue combine to make it both distinctive and cozy. The kitchen can offer a nouveau, vegetarian-friendly touch like the pit-cooked portabella mushrooms and a rarity, like its homemade smoked sausage, while the barbecued meats and Brunswick stew are as dependable as old buddies. Be aware that the seating emphasizes picnic tables, so prepare to be sociable.
