My favorite BBQ when going to visit family in Bham. The pork was a little dry today; however, the ribs and chicken were first class. Enjoy all and every one of their "sides." Must eat if you like real BBQ!

I was in Birmingham on business and decided to investigate highly rated BBQ places. Saw's came in at the top of the list on a number of boards. We were there on a Monday night, around 6'ish. The store front is unassuming and the interior is old but very quaint with old signs covering the walls, but none of us... More

Followed the advice of other TripAdvisor folks. Walked in around 5:30 last night and checked out the menu. The cashier answered a few questions and we got our food. I got the combo 2 and my wife got combo 3. The pulled pork was great and the 1/4 chicken hit the spot. Oh did i mention the two ribs that... More

Tender, flavorful and absolutely delicious! Try the sampler platter (pork, chicken, ribs with two sides) and come hungry. All food had a deep, balanced flavor and the BBQ sauce finished like a nice whiskey. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very informal atmosphere and corresponding decor. As others mentioned, do not judge by the exterior or you will really miss out... More

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!
