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.

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

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.

The food is great, but the dining area was cramped and wasn't exactly the cleanest in the world. I recommend the food, but you might want to get it to go.

This tiny hole in the wall holds a secret everybody needs to know about. THE BARBECUE U.S. AMAZING. I grew up in Decatur, Al eating at Big Bob Gibson's. They are renowned for fabulous chicken with white sauce. Saws has perfected pork and ribs. They line up outside the door everyday. You have GOT to try their greens. OMG! Ribs... More

Perfect BBQ, only better was right off the hog, but in the city, this is a home run! A perfect place for people who travel and do not like chain restaurants. Go to where the "Locals Go"! Truthfully, being raised in the South, there was nothing to complain about, and I would order anything from the menu with confidence it... More
