Saw's is famed for BBQ. I got the Sweet Tea Fried Chicken Sandwich. Absolutely, the best chicken sandwich EVER! Fried okra and green tomatoes were fab as well. The only disappointment was the homemade chips. They were not on the level as the other dishes...More

Saw's is a must try for anyone in Birmingham. The food is delicious, and the atmosphere is fun at every location. Saw's Juke Joint often has a live band and a great selection of beer. Perfect spot for family, friends, or couples.

I enjoyed this visit to Saw's. For lunch I had 5 wings, a side of fried pickles and deviled eggs. Service was fast and friendly. Food was good as always. I can always recommend a trip to Saw's!
