We visited at the recommendation of a friend while evacuated from our home due to Irma. The place was packed! The food was outstanding. I highly recommend Saw's BBQ!

I was in area with my daughter who recommended the restaurant. We both ordered four ribs with two sides. They rib meat fell off the bones! The collard which were both of my sides were so good. They were perfectly seasoned. I would return.

Excellent BBQ!! Small restaurant but great food. Our party had a variety of foods. Everyone loved their selection from pulled pork sandwich to the samplers.

I highly recommend Saw's. The pulled pork, and ribs were the best I've had. The ribs are huge, fall from the bone tender. The pulled pork had the perfect amount of smoke, and was delicious. I've had better BBQ sauce, but their meat was superb!...More

A MUST stop when in Birmingham. By far the best BBQ chicken we have ever tasted. Very casual, delicious food and very authentic.

Nice to find a relatively new BBQ joint in an older area. Food was delicious. Sauce is vinegary, not sweet, but very good. Nice thing is they let you put on as much/little as you want and don't slather it all over to cover up...More

My kids and I decided on barbecue for supper after spending time close by. I decided that we would try Saw's for the first time. My kids (12 and 8 year old) both got the Pork loaded tater with sweet tea. I got the pork...More
