Three of us visited this wonderful place last night. We were looking for food that was not the "usual". We found it. The atmosphere is very "basic". There are only about 7 table inside (although plenty of seating outdoors during warm weather which last night definitely was NOT). We had the Pork & Greens and the Shrimp and Grits. Both... More

I love a little hole in the wall spot with great food and this place definitely delivers. The okra and fried green tomatoes were very fresh. The pork plate was a great recommendation from the staff...cheese grits, greens, bbq pork, bbq sauce and fresh onion rings...💗 I will definitely visit again the next time I'm in Birmingham.

I came to Birmingham for business and was not familiar with the area. I was looking for some local barbecue to try and decided to give Saw's a shot, based solely on the TripAdvisor reviews. My GPS led me to the place and I must admit, I had half a mind to go somewhere else as the neighborhood seemed a... More

Must visit whenever i visit Birmingham. Sausages are really good. As is the beef sandwich. Even the sides like collard greens are really good.

Best BBQ in a great bbq city. WINGS are the best I've had. A single pork plate with huge sides of onion rings and fried split okra both cooked to order is enough for 2. People that don't even like okra like Saws'.

Hole in the wall, and as usual for places like that... Such a delight! The food was wonderful, they have the "good ice" and the sweet tea is like my grandmothers! I had the pulled pork plate with greens and okra. I hadn't had okra sliced in half before (usually chunks) but it was great! Their white BBQ sauce is... More

This is truly a hole in the wall, but the food is fabulous! We have been several times, but have eaten inside only once. We usually take our food into Avondale Brewery and eat it there. The bar b q, grits, and greens are to die for. The onion rings and fried green tomatoes are the best I've ever put... More

Food is very good. This is just a small little place with great food. I have eaten there several times and it is always crowed.
