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

Some of the best bbq I've ever had! I had the chicken with white sauce (wow!) With green beans and mac & cheese; hubby had the sampler with ribs & chicken. Everything was great. Save room for banana pudding - out of this world!

Garden and Gun as one of the best BBQ in the South. We had a sampler platter with pulled pork, ribs and chicken with white sauce. ( BTW white Sauce was tasty. I have never had anything like it). Slaw and beans were good. Greens not too good. Deviled eggs were dry and the Mac and Cheese was ordinary. Banana... More

Awesome lunch at Saw's BBQ today. Since this would be a 'once in a while' opportunity as I do not live in the Birmingham area, I decided to try it all. The chicken in white sauce was incredible... cooked perfectly with just the right amount of sauce/seasoning. The rib (just had one to try them) was fall off the bone... More

How this tiny kitchen turns out this most wonderful food is amazing. As usual, there was a line but we snagged a table and dug in to some heavenly bar b que! It's THE BEST! I had the pulled pork plate with fabulous turnip greens and baked beans and cornbread. It was to die for! My son had the bar... More

My favorite BBQ when going to visit family in Bham. The pork was a little dry today; however, the ribs and chicken were first class. Enjoy all and every one of their "sides." Must eat if you like real BBQ!

I was in Birmingham on business and decided to investigate highly rated BBQ places. Saw's came in at the top of the list on a number of boards. We were there on a Monday night, around 6'ish. The store front is unassuming and the interior is old but very quaint with old signs covering the walls, but none of us... More

Followed the advice of other TripAdvisor folks. Walked in around 5:30 last night and checked out the menu. The cashier answered a few questions and we got our food. I got the combo 2 and my wife got combo 3. The pulled pork was great and the 1/4 chicken hit the spot. Oh did i mention the two ribs that... More

Tender, flavorful and absolutely delicious! Try the sampler platter (pork, chicken, ribs with two sides) and come hungry. All food had a deep, balanced flavor and the BBQ sauce finished like a nice whiskey. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very informal atmosphere and corresponding decor. As others mentioned, do not judge by the exterior or you will really miss out... More
