I went with some friends for lunch the other day. The first issue was winding through seated customers to get to the counter and place an order. Then you have to figure out who is actually in line and who is just waiting for their order. Seating is very limited. We sat outside (fortunately it was in the 50's this... More

everything i've ever tried is good. however, my fave is the pork n greens. the catfish and greens are a close second. it's really the best bbq in birmingham. shame they don't have ribs unless you go to the homewood location. nevertheless, it's one of the best hole in the walls i have eaten in. we worth it.

Yes, you will think twice about entering this establishment, but you will miss out if you pass on by. It looks like a run down shack from the outside, but the food at Saw's Soul Food Joint is some good eatin'! They have crazy combinations of food. My favorite is the Pork 'n Greens. Pulled bar b que pork, with... More

We had really high expectations after reading other reviews... The atmosphere is "way cool", we enjoyed sitting outside at the picnic tables!!! But we we found the food to be just OK. That said the onion ring (straws)were pretty "damn good" to quote my husband!!! The shrimp and grits were disappointing. The BBQ pork was tender & tasty but I... More

I love me some BBQ and I wasn't disappointed when I drop by this place. I read some of the reviews while planning my trip to Birmingham and I said I would pay them a visit. The BBQ was some of the bets I ever had. I had the rib tips and I must say I return the next day... More

Recently we found ourselves in Birmingham for an overnight stay and decided to try BBQ at Saw's Soul Kitchen. Not only was the food delicious, the experience was awesome. This is a must do great food and fun time!

The reviews were spot on. The place is a dive with only a few tables inside and out. We waited about an hour before we received the food but it was worth it. Tender pork sandwich with smoked wings as an appetizer. This place is a well oiled machine of tasty bbq, a must have in Birmingham.

Small, divey-looking former barber shop turned colloqial bbq haven. Really good 'que, delicious onion rings. Line moves fast, tables open frequently, interesting mix of friendly and patient patrons.

Saw's sauce is one of my favorites and I was stoked to go after I heard about this place. Service was good and the BBQ was amazing, sadly the side items were unimpressive. In almost any other state I would have still given it at least 4 stars based on the pulled pork sandwich alone, but this is Alabama, and... More
