If reviews were based on sheer volume of food, Saw's would be #1. After eating here I went home and immediately fell into a food coma. I must admit I came with low expectations, having lived in a half dozen cities who claim to be the BBQ capital of the world, but Saw's sauce is my kind of sauce and... More

Being from, Austin, Texas and living near the best BBQ in the U.S., I'm kind of a BBQ snob so did not think that Saws would be anything to write home about. But one bite of the ribs and I was texting my friends that Saws is the best I've ever had and it rivals the BBQ in Austin. I've... More

I've never had smoked wings before, but the were good. The atmosphere is casual, but inviting. Very good service.

We come about once a month and never are disappointed. Tonight I ha the pulled pork & my wife had chicken. Both perfect. I need to answer the negative reviews. Don't like a vinegar based sauce, go to Memphis or KC for BBQ. Don't like that the place is a hole in the wall go paint your house. This is... More

We used Saw's Catering for a birthday bash in November at our home. Our meal included barbecue smoked pork, smoked chicken (oh so tender), macaroni and cheese, seasoned collard greens, baked beans, boudain (a real treat!!!), and last, but not least, some amazing banana pudding. Saw's gave us more than enough buns, three different types of barbecue sauces, (white barbecue... More

I'm a VERY PICKY person when it comes to my BBQ. Luckily I had a friend who worked here for years or I might not have ever even tried this. Its by far hands down the best BBQ sauce Ive ever had. And when I drop my child off in the morning for school you can already smell the meat... More

This place is small and pretty crowded when we came. The people are super friendly and it's like a step back in time. I had the chicken with white sauce. Quite delicious, juicy and seasoned well. A generous portion that was perfectly cooked. My husband had ribs and they were delicious. You could make a meal of their sides and... More

In Birmingham on business so I went to Saw's for dinner. Oh my goodness! The amount of food they give you is extreme. I got a half rack of ribs (the cashier said it was only 5 bones to inform me, I thought oh well that's ok) a pint of baked beans and a pint of cabbage. One of the... More

I'm not a fan. BBQ is never my choice for dining, but I don't dislike it and many of my family members love it. So we went after our trip to Vulcan Park. I didn't know god made potatoes that size. Larger than my hand, and I'm not a small person. "Loaded" includes butter, sour cream, cheddar, green onion, bacon,... More

If you order smoked chicken with 2 sides, take note that it is 1/2 chicken. And how does it taste? Wow! The flavor is a beautiful smoke with the moistest, tenderest chicken ever! Oh I never had white barbeque sauce ... it's a black pepper mayo sauce that is excellent with the chick! Then there's the BBQ ribs that are... More
