It is a small location as everyone has pointed out but I went about 3pm and didn't really wait at all. Every sauce was better than the last but the cheese grits became my favorite topping.

I went here not really knowing what to expect and left already having my order for my next visit. It is a small location as everyone has pointed out but I went about 3pm and didn't really wait at all. Every sauce was better than the last but the cheese grits became my favorite topping. Get the banana pudding!

In a city full of great BBQ, Saw's stands out. I've never eaten in their restaurants. I've only had takeout and eaten off of their food truck. Even when eaten out of styrofoam boxes, this BBQ is special. The meat is tender (both chicken and pork) and the sauce adds the perfect note of flavor (both white and red). The... More

Absolutely loved this place. Note: try to beat the lunch rush! My wife and I luckily arrived just before the place became packed. The food was worth every single penny. if you are looking for some good country cooking go here right away.

This restaurant has the best food. We ate at the Avondale restaurant and it is small but we did not have to wait when we went. I got the Pork and Greens which has cheese grits with greens, pork and light fried onions. Now this may not sound to good to some of you but I can tell you this... More

Everything about this place was great. Except the waiting. And waiting. Its even worse at their Avondale location. The good news is the food is fabulous. Go if you don't mind waiting in long lines. 30 minutes plus.

Saws has bar none, THE BEST wings in town. Smoked, crispy, and drizzled in white bbq sauce, these are what dreams are made of! Don't go for the atmosphere, go for the food. Awesome bbq and greens but get the wings!!!! Enough said!!

The food is always fresh, hot and tastes fantastic. You always receive generous portions. Be ready for a wait and limited seating.

A very small. It's located in an old Barber shop building. Arrived for lunch before 11:30am and the line was just starting to get long, but it moves quick. we scored a table by the front window and enjoyed the southern BBQ. Sauce is not a thick stick to the meat sauce, but a thinner liquid-type sauce. Vinegar is prominent,... More

My husband and I got in line at 6:42 pm, it took about 13 minutes to order, which was fine. Here is what was NOT Fine...We ordered our food, stood outside to wait on the order. Several times a tall man would come outside and call out numbers to the people waiting outside. Several numbers were called and they never... More

I got the pork stuffed potato and turnips. The turnips were a little sweet for my taste, but the potato was amazing! I was there on a very cold day, so it definitely hit the spot. This is a very low key place without a lot of sitting area. It smells great in there and everyone that works there is... More
