I used to get a loaded potato with pulled pork in Houston and it was good but this was so much better! I will be back again.

I have visited this property twice, and it remains my favorite bar-b-q restaurant in Birmingham area. On my first visit, I ordered the bar-b-que sandwich; and I was unimpressed. On my second visit, I had 1/2 slab of pork ribs, and they are the best I have tasted. The amount was plentiful, the food was great, and the price was... More

During a trip to Birmingham, we drove out of our way to visit this restaurant. We were very disappointed. The ribs on my plate were charred to the point that I could hardly eat them. I threw most of them away when I left. My wife's BBQ pork plate was a very small portion of meat, and two small sides... More

We visited Saw's during the week for lunch. Place was crowded which most of the time is a good sign for good food. The crowded restaurant didn't lie (though the restaurant is very small). We had barbecue sandwiches (chicken and pork) plus the half chicken plate. The chicken was delicious (two people should share half chicken plate) the pork was... More

This was the best barbecue I've had a restaurant. The white sauce in the chicken was amazing. I will certainly be back.

Being our 1 st time, all 3 of us ordered a combination plate that came with... More

My wife and I have been to Saw's several times since we "discovered" it last year, and we are never disappointed! As other reviews have stated, it is indeed just a hole-in-the-wall place with one cash register, but even if they had three, it would still be lined out the door at lunch time. After you taste the food, it's... More

Saw's is not for someone in a hurry. It took 30 mins. To get to the counter to place our order! We soon found out why the lines were out the door. The food was fantastic. The pulled pork my wife had was great, the baked beans are delicious. I didn't care for the potato salad but the wife did.... More
