After some time enjoying excellent brews at Avondale Brewery, you need to eat. When the munchies hit, Saw’s is the place! Probably the best bbq we have eaten in a very long time. Great portions and try the fried okra-awesome!

I'm new to Birmingham and have tried several barbecue places -this one is my favorite by far. The Homewood location is small and not ideal atmosphere as people walk by your table as they enter the restaurant but the barbecue, the sauces and even the...More
