I was passing through Birmingham and stopped at Saws. The menu has a good selection of sandwiches. My smoked chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries was really good. Quick service and a pleasant atmosphere made for an enjoyable meal.

Amazing BBQ for all tastes--pork, chicken...you name it. The fried okra is the best I have ever had, and the beer selection is impressive. Casual atmosphere, helpful staff, delicious food...almost perfection!
