I love BBQ! I love trying different BBQ places - this one is amazing! I had the pulled pork sandwich with Mac and cheese! Both are incredible. Tiny little place and had a huge line out the door, but definitely worth the wait! Save room for the banana pudding! It was light and fluffy, great flavor! Great customer service, very... More

Had the pulled pork sandwich. Really enjoyed the tangy, vinegar based BBQ sauce. The greens were delicious and tender. Good food at a good price.

Third BBQ we've had this trip. Stopped in on a late Friday afternoon. No line. Order your cue at the counter, then the order is delivered to you. I ordered the pulled pork plate, and my wife had the pork rib plate. We had turnip greens, baked beans, and cole slaw as sides. The greens weren't very good, the baked... More

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
