Disappointed- No Okra

Ok, I was disappointed there is no fried okra served here. I tried something new and now I have a new favorite at Saws....the smoked chicken sandwich with white sauce. This small location was very busy and the kitchen staff was hopping.

Stumbled onto public parking right across the street. On street parking was a garbled mess. This place offers indoor and outdoor seating. Indoor is cramped and there is a LOT of traffic inside, which is a good sign. The line does move fast and there is a great vibe in this place. You have to wait in line to order... More

Saw's catered my niece's rehearsal dinner! It is a local favorite. Sweet BBQ sauce on chicken and pork. Cheese biscuits, mac n cheese, banana pudding for dessert.

We took a special road trip to Saw's BBQ... wow.... so good.... I had the pulled pork sandwich, deviled eggs and coleslaw. I couldn't eat it fast enough. The plates of food are big, the service is fast, and you will need to walk around the block after lunch! Definitely worth the trip!

Stopped in on our way home to Dallas again. Still fabulous! It's a small place but they pack 'em in every day. There were 6 of us and we all left happy and full!

I titled it that way on purpose, because if you love those favors, you will love Saw's. Discussions of bbq in the south will raise folks blood pressure. So, let me say that I loved the decor.....Alabama football, Nehi and a Royal Crown Cola signs, and accolades and awards for Saw's. Great service...albeit at the counter.....then they literally bring you... More

GOOD: The food was good, not outstanding. I enjoyed a BBQ pulled pork sandwich, Memphis style, with slaw on top. The bad: There is not a place to sit down and enjoy your meal and there is not a place to stand up and wait for take out. The place was too crowded and I am sure the place exceeded... More

Some of the best bbq I've ever eaten. Loved the pulled chicken with white bbq sauce and coleslaw. The potato salad was good but lacked chucks of big potatoes, the baked beans and greens were also good. Everyone was friendly and the prices can't be beat. Go early as it's popular and packed.

We stopped in after a long day of travel. The bbq is not very saucy and it was a little spicy (per my children). The pork sandwich was very filling. The baked potatoes were HUGE! Great tasting food after a long day on the road.

We rarely step out into a new place as far as food, we are like most and have out regular places we like to eat. Well we were crunched for time and wanted to eat as a family before I headed to work and so I did a search and this place had great reviews and so we decided to... More
