With Swadley's "Foggy Bottom Kitchen" being in the news this week, I thought we'd take a look back at this fair, but tough and chewy, review of Swadley's BBQ from December 2020.

Right-Wing, Wrong Barbeque: A Soulless Saturday Night at Swadley’s Bar-B-Q
Before this assignment, I have never eaten at Swadley’s Bar-B-Q, mostly because I’d rather spend my precious time writing about the small-town, country-based roadhouse smokehouses where mom and pop serve some of the best barbeque this side of the Red River.
It never fails, however, that as soon as a piece is posted, some tasteless drone of popular opinion will invariably comment “Dude, you don’t know good ‘cue! You need to go to Swadley’s! They’ve got the best ‘cue in the state, brah!”
So I started to think…maybe they might have a point. I mean, Swadley’s has catered some of the biggest and best conservative events in Oklahoma over the past few years, culminating in last Saturday’s right-wing “Keep the Georgia Senate Red” shindig at Castle Falls, with such Okie politicos like Gov. Kevin Stitt, Senator James Lankford and Senator Jim Inhofe in attendance.
