A small restaurant with large servings of mouthwatering barbecue. The Smoked Chicken with white barbecue sauce was delectable. The pulled pork was very tender. Could have eaten here every day we were in town. Although the line was long, the service was very efficient. Seating inside was totally packed, but there are plenty of outdoor seating options.

The place is smal and always packed with customers. I guess that means that people love this food, but I don't personally like the vinegar taste within most of the food. The bbq pork was great, but sides were like a North Carolina bbq.

Passing through B'ham, we Googled "Best BBQ" and Saw's was the clear, runaway top recommendation. We made our way there with great expectations (and drove away HUGELY disappointed). Perhaps we happened to hit the place on an "off" day (or maybe we were just spoiled by recent visits to The Pecan Lodge and Lockhart's in Dallas--both of which serve world-class... More

If you love good BBQ, you'll love Saw's! My favorite place to eat in the Bham area! Their BBQ is by far the best I've ever tasted! You'll enjoy the atmosphere too! The walls are covered with names of people that have been there! Get there early, and come hungry!

The pulled pork was good, not great. The mac and cheese was good. The turnip greens were wonderful, second only to my dads! Place is small and dirty, but they do a big business, line out the door.
