A small and very informal place but comfortable. We had the pulled pork sandwich. The meat was very tender and flavorful. The serving of meat was also generous. We also loved the potato salad. It was not overly flavored as some can be, but had a nice grainy texture and subtle flavors. Service is friendly. Don't come here for the... More

I passed through here on a recent road trip from nashville to new orleans. Food was amazing plus the staff were incredibly friendly & true to south hospitality. The interior in this place was so unique & could never be replicated as many BBQ places back home in London try to bring that southern style experience this place has genuine... More

I don't normally review restaurants on TripAdvisor and am only stopping in to say I ate here for the first time last Wednesday on my way to Louisiana, and liked it so much I rerouted my return drive to go back through B'ham instead of ATL so I could take my husband here. I am a BBQ glutton who has... More

We pulled up and my husband was ready to go somewhere else. The exterior will make you question whether you should venture in. But the good? Super yummy! I got the Pork and Greens plate...did not disappoint.

Whatever you choose- ribs, chicken, pork- get the white sauce- it is great! The potato salad and banana pudding is also worth the trip!

I can't say that I've tried all the BBQ in the entire state, but of the dozens I have, Saw's is by far the best!

My fiance and I often eat at Saws Soul Kitchen in Avondale but decided to visit Saws in Homewood due to it having a little larger inside seating area. We got to this Saws location at 11:10 am and it was already crowded. We waited in line maybe 5 mins to order so that wasn't bad at all. It was... More

Saw's is hands down the best barbeque in Birmingham. The ribs are phenomenal and the white over the chicken is finger lickin good.

Being from South Florida I don't have much opportunity to savor great BBQ. Life long friend and I here to golf RTJ Trail. During our annual get-away weekends we always try to find local food favorites. Based on very good feedback on TA we hunted down this joint. Not much ambiance but people lined out the door waiting to be... More

What a local delight - a good down home BBQ house serving the real thing. We had the sample plate with ribs, pulled pork and chicken, with the macarone and beans sides. Loved it all - the white sauce is not something I am used to but had to give it a try - was good. Love their house sauce.... More
