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.

We lived near this restaurant for 1 year and got take out on a regular basis. The bbq is not to be missed. Love the tangy carolina style sauce. The sides are always well-executed southern staples. the pulled pork is classic. I ate some tonight and it was great with the pickles and tangy vinegar based slaw. Enjoy!

Saws is the real deal for BBQ. Not fancy but authentic. I ordered the Ribs on this trip but have had their pulled pork and chicken - all are excellent. The ribs have so much meat on them I would like to know where they get them Bc I haven't seen ribs with this much meat on them anywhere else.... More

Best ribs I have ever had! I don't understand how they make them taste so good. Make sure you get the white and red BBQ sauce on them!

We stopped at Saw's in Homewood for carry out. My son-in-law said it was some of the best barbecue in Birmingham. I would have to agree. We got chicken, pork, and sausage along with several sides. The pork and chicken were very good and the sausage was excellent. It was more than enough to feed 7 of us and it... More

Great BBQ. Have eaten here both time I've been to Birmingham for business. Pulled pork is awesome and there is no bad side dishes. Portion size is more than you can eat. Tip; if you're going for lunch get there before 11:30 to avoid a long line.

Thank tbird437
