LOVED IT!

Authentic southern BBQ - small, quaint place with only about 8 tables, but the food makes any wait worth the while. The food quantity they give you is enormous and the sweet tea is fantastic!

We were on a southern road trip with our family trying different BBQ places along the way. We hit Saw's on a Saturday at lunch and it was packed with locals. The line went out the door, but it moved very fast. We ate outside on the tables and had a great time. The white and red BBQ was outstanding... More

I stopped for lunch and this was my first visit. As I started into the restaurant, a busload of people exited and went inside Saw's. I started to leave noting the size of the restaurant and the number of people waiting in line. So glad that I didn't! The line moved quickly and my food arrived shortly after placing my... More

I've had barbecue at other places, and know how to cook barbecue. There was nothing over the top delicious for me. My friend and I ate here for lunch, not very big inside there are some seats outside but not a lot, parking is not the greatest either. I had 1 spare rib and chicken sandwich with a side and...

I got the two meat combo. Pulled pork and BBQ chicken. The BBQ chicken with the white sauce was perfecto! I'd go back any day.

I ordered the rib and sandwich meal and it was the best pork sandwich and rib I've ever had. My husband ordered the chicken with the white sauce and he said it was the best BBQ chicken he has had. We've gone to all of the popular BBQ restaurants in Memphis and Alabama so we were really happy to give... More

What a great hole in the wall! Be prepared to wait for a table, there are only about a dozen. Variety of delivery of the bbq- sandwiches, platters, samplers, on baked potatoes. I had a sandwich with a side of mac n cheese- great smoky flavor of the meat and a sweet and tangy sauce. The potato with pulled pork... More

Stopped here with my friends for a late lunch and the place was packed. People did not stop coming in while we were there. However we were surprised by the fast service.The ribs order was enough to feed two, so take note on their huge portions!

Which gives you a hint of what is to come. Really good barbecue. Everyone has preferences of favorite type of BBQ but this is a good place to try and see if their's is as good as people say. Try it for yourself and I believe you will agree it is great BBQ.

Most importantly...there are 3 places in B'hm with the Saws brand. Their web site does not have the menus available. Each place has a different menu. I was brought to Saws Juke Joint on the pretense that it was a BBQ place. It isn't. The only BBQ item you can get is some pulled pork. No ribs. The very next... More
