Since we live South of the Mason Dixon Line, we have eaten barbeque in numerous cities in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, etc. We thought we had eaten great tasting barbeque but Saw's barbeque in Birmingham, Al. beats all the other barbeques hands down. The sauces have unique flavors and there is one white sauce... More

Wife and I were in town for Eric Church concert. Saw this place on trip advisor. Very small place with like 6 indoor tables and a bunch of tables outside. Great wings (crispy and delicious even without sauce) and BBQ pork (basically a big hunk of slow cooked happiness). Cheese grits were super creamy goodness. Sweet tea will cause the... More

I've lived my entire life in the South, so I know good BBQ when I see it. Some locals took me to Saw's and this really is near the top of the list. The pulled pork plate was tender, juicy, plentiful and had just the right amount of sauce. I'm trying to limit carbs so the sides of turnip greens... More

This is a unique, but wonderful casual restaurant. Unusual combinations of food that meld together to form a wonderful culinary experience. The staff is well versed in the menu and can help you reach a final decision, which "ain't" east to do in your own and on your first visit b/c of the intriguing menu. Whatever you choose, you will...

One of our favorite places to go for BBQ. They have really good food! They have a small quant indoor area and a nice area outside to eat. Get their early, or you will be waiting awhile.

Love their greens and grits. The pork is the side to the the main dish -- the greens n grits! Don't pass on the banana pudding either!

Had the chicken filled potato. OMG!!! Delish. And if you're having a budget wedding, this thing will feed 6 people, including your two new brothers-in-law, who've never been full in their lives. Biz associate had the pork. These potatoes are terrific!

After a long, long day of working at [REDACTED], I was ready for my second job--wrangling children back on the homestead. When I called my wife to let her know I was en route on Overton Road, hurtling through the Tiny Kingdom, I could hear the desperate hunger in her voice even over the keening wails of our toddler. Being... More

Love coming here and convinced some new neighbors to give it a try. They were a little skeptical about the wings preferring fried wings but they are solid fans of Saw's now. The red a white BBQ sauce on their smoked wings will make a believer out of you too.

I wanted to know what everyone was talking about so I stopped in for lunch. I ordered the smoked wings and fried okra. The okra was whole but still delicious. The wings were covered in sauce and I had to keep myself from licking my fingers. I saw a plate of what I heard was Pork and Greens and it... More
