Great BBQ, fixins and soul food. Check um out! Don't plan to eat there tho because it's a small dining area with only a few small tables. Get it to go and have a picnic at the park.

You really need to try Saws if you want to try barbecue in Birmingham. The pork and greens is a sure winner.

Often you will see a line out the front door. There's a reason why. This tiny hole in the wall serves up some delicious smoky tender pork as well many other things. I like slaw in my sandwich. Grab some goodies and head to a picnic table outside or over to Avondales patio and get a beer. Great place!

Best cheeseburger and wings I know of. Shoestring onion rings are great too. The place is a bit small so it's a headache to move around, but the food makes it worth it!

Saw's has a good variety of good food. Seating is limited but you can get your food and take it to Avondale Brewery and eat outside. I must say they have the very best wings of anywhere. There is usually a crowd around lunch so be prepared.

I am from SC but after tasting Souls BBQ I have come to the conclusion SC or NC don't know how to make BBQ. The pulled pork is served on top of cheese grits, greens and the topped with onion straws. Your mouth will be in food heaven. The cacaction of all these flavors pleases your taste buds and the... More

Very busy place. Very Loud. Not a restaurant where you can communicate with your friends without shouting. It apparently is a favorite for twenty somethings but the food is not worth the slow service. If you want to try the food, go to the Avondale location.

I think Saw's has a great environment and the most delicious pulled pork in town. love the greens. For me it's a neighborhood place, always friendly and casual.

Ate here once a year ago and got sick. Greasy BBQ, so I stick with the tried and true that I have been eating for 53 years. The Original Golden Rule in Irondale. People seem to like it, parking is always full.

Thank SheltonFamily
