AMAZING

Little bitty place, with the most awesome food. I had the "Pork and Greens"...cheese grits topped with collard greens, pulled pork, a little sauce with crispy onion rings on top. OUT OF THIS WORLD!

This place is the place to be for a nice lunch at a reasonable price. The burgers are super; they're so big and juicy, I use a knife and fork to eat mine and they come with fries which s very filling. There are other sandwiches, fish, shrimp, slaw, okra, etc...of course wings. Many other delicious items to choose from.... More

I've never had a bad meal at Saw's Soul Kitchen. The Pork and Greens over grits is something I wouldn't normally make for myself, but it works, wonderfully. The hamburgers are luscious and the ambience is quirky. The only downside of Saw's is the seating. It is such a small place with such a big demand. You will have to... More

Great staff that delivers an outstanding meal every time we visit. The reward is well worth the wait. Sitting outside watching orders come out only adds to the anticipation and makes it all the more enjoyable with friends.

I wouldn't care if they serve this AWESOMENESS in a barn, or in a field in the rain - I'd show up. Saw's is the best BBQ in Birmingham. Atmosphere is old school BBQ joint. Did I mention the food is divine! Beautiful smoke ring on pork, ribs are sweet, seasoned, smoky wonderfulness. I've also used Saw's for catering and... More

I stumbled upon Saw's by accident. I did a pole search for soul food near me in Birmingham and it popped up. Originally wasn't gonna go but it was the only one open. I personally love when I can get a view of the kitchen. How I was able to see directly into the kitchen, which was very clean. The... More

Recommended by a local in HSV that this was a must stop, and for sure it was! tremendous food to be sure. Get there early and beat the lines, and if you enjoy alcohol, Avondale Brewery is next door. best food I've enjoyed in Alabama

Saw's is never disappointing. It's comforting array of deep south barbeque always leaves me wanting.....

Love this place. The BBQ is amazing and love to sit outside in the Spring and Summer on the picnic tables. So glad that this area is trying around.
