The pork BBQ was slopped with so much sauce that it was more like a gravy and the flavor just didn't do it for either of us. The sauce killed the meat - I could have been eating turkey for all I know. The place is expensive for what you get. We got two pork plates which was little more... More

I had the opportunity to try Saw's food via their food truck that was near the building in Hoover (off Riverchase Parkway) where I was working one day last week. Three of us walked out to order lunch - there were probably 6 or 7 people who had already ordered and were waiting for their food. At first I was... More

The food is ok, but they have NO kids menu. My family of 4 including An 8 year old and 5 year old spent $60.00. A bit much for average bbq.

I was completing the last leg of my cross country road trip and texted a coworker who was originally from AL for places to stop & eat/ sights to see and this place was on his list. I love a good BBQ and this was good BBQ. Staff was friendly. And I was digging the atmosphere. All the signs on... More

Friends recommended we stop by one evening for some BarBQue. The only thing about the request that sounded odd was the time. They recommended we show up for supper right at 5pm. Well, we did and I'm glad we did. It is a very small venue and got crowded quickly. I had the pulled pork plate, the rest of the... More

Rod said they open at 11:00 and they start lining up. He wasn't lying because we were there for the sign flip(we are open). No joke there were already folks in there waiting to order. It was ON after that. We ordered the combo plate which was two ribs, pulled pork, chicken leg qtr. with 2 sides. We did the... More

This is a great neighborhood spot!! We were looking for a place for lunch travelling through Birmingham and found Saw's. The BBQ was fantastic! The staff was friendly and the service was great. The place is small and may seem cramped, but it is worth it. My husband had the ribs....a "half rack" was more than enough. I had the... More

By far, the best meal we had while visiting Birmingham. The restaurant is much smaller than expected and had a long line at lunch but the line moves quickly. My sister and I shared the combo plate ($16) which included two huge ribs, a quarter chicken, pulled pork, corn bread, and two sides. So much food and ALL of it... More
