Always a line but they know how to handle it and get their customers taken care of quickly. The chicken and the white BBQ sauce are must haves. The greens are fantastic. The sides rotate and are all very good!

I ordered way too much food and do not regret that a bit! The ribs are so tender and sweet. I made the mistake of saving the chicken for last. I was already full when I took my first bite and it may have been the best thing on the plate. The cream sauce was simply amazing! Prices are not... More

The SAW sampler plate comes with 2 huge ribs, a very generous portion of pulled pork and chicken in the famous "Saw's white sauce". Two sides or one huge baker are included. If you order this meal, share it or totally pig out (large portions) and don't want to plan your next visit you either hate BBQ or don't have... More

What can you say about Saw's other than GREAT food! If you go for lunch get there early as they open at 11 and there can be a line out the door. The staff works hard and very friendly. Food is worth the line, promise! Good for lunch, dinner, anytime.

We were in town for a Bama football game a few days ago and had to try some BBQ. We came here for lunch on Friday a little after 11am and the line was out the door. The BBQ was very good, and the prices were not bad for what you got! (ribs, pulled pork, chicken, collared greens and deviled... More

Heard good things about Saw's so we stopped in for dinner. Smelled amazing so we were excited. We looked at the menus and when it says $$$ they are not kidding. We got our food and they had good size portions but the BBQ was so so, not much flavor and the sauce was more less vinegar. The ribs were... More

I had the sampler plate - pulled pork, ribs, and chicken. The ribs were the best I have had in a while, better than Dreamland. It is a vinegar based sauce which was okay, but the quality of the meat was outstanding.

Our favorite BBQ in town. We favor and share the combo plate offering ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, and 2 sides. Serves the two if us twice and with much appreciation.
