Freakin best pulled pork I've ever had. So tender and juicy. Sauces were the bomb and potato salad made with mustard/mayo just like my moms
Locals are right, this is the best barbeque we've had in Birmingham. Restaurant is retro but very clean and staff is great. The pulled pork was tender and flavorful. Cornbread better than my own. Parking on the road a little tight.
Just one warning the space is really tight like blood pressure cuff tight. Please don't let that stop you from stepping through the doors. They do have tables for dining in if you prefer to eat there. The customer service was great, the waitress/hostess was very polite. Now, the food is something to write home about. I had the pulled pork sandwich with a side of macaroni & cheese, me and my friend ate in silence because the food was so good. Lol. My friend had the bbq baked potato (with your choice of toppings) and greens. Be sure to try the cornbread. We went during the afternoon hours after the lunch rush. I have went back and tried the ribs and I wasn't disappointed, my food was even better the next day. The parking is like curb side and I think some people park on the side. On the same block you have Taco place, Big Spoon Creamery, Ono Poke, Pizza spot, another ice cream place, and an antique shop with a Chevron gas station on the same road if you need to refuel. Hope this information is helpful.
Go here! They have the most amazing white bbq sauce ever tasted by mankind. What a fun experience!
Down. South. BBQ. This is super popular hole in the wall complete with a door that sticks when you open it. The menu is simple but powerful. They have sandwiches for around $6 ish as well as meals, platters and loaded potatoes that will make you need a nap. The ribs are tasty and just melt off the bone. Oh man. The pork sandwiches are generous and the sides are great. I got the chips for a side and it was not your typical small bag, it was surprisingly large. The soft drinks come with the "good ice". You know what I'm talking about, right? The ice that's like little pebbles that soaks in part of your drink and chews real nice. The atmosphere is cool with random things on the walls including writings and scribbles from random people. The location is in a popular area with other restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, juice shops and a cool looking antique shop. This is a must-visit place. Highly recommended.
The best bbq in Birmingham area, maybe the whole state of Alabama. Don't miss it!
From Florida and make it a point of planning road trips around stopping at Saw's. The staff is always friendly, and the food never disappoints. The loaded baker and the mac & cheese are my must have items.
Some of the best BBQ I've had. I always make a habit of stopping by on my trips up to Louisville and back. It's always about half way and a perfect lunch or dinner spot! Simple, down home, and delicious! Plus lots of side options.
Great BBQ eatery. Try it, you will like it lots.
Kinda a hole-in-the-wall type place, small seating areas, but overall bbq was pretty good.
Best BBQ in the Birmingham area, probably the whole state.
Nice pulled pork BBQ. Generous portions of succulent meat. Zero atmosphere in cramped quarters. If you want atmosphere go to Highlands Grill.
Best BBQ in Birmingham in my opinion. Nobody around has ribs like they do. It is the meatiest rib I have ever had. Saw's sauce packs a Tangy sweet with a little bit of spice that is just right. Not craving BBQ? That's ok, pop over to Saw's on the side for a Saw's burger, sweet heat chicken wings or another of the tastey choices they have. You could also grab a local draft brew or they sport a full bar as well. Love this local treasure!!
It was a holiday but the food wasn't as fresh as I've had at the other Saw's location and staff were clearly ready to usher customers out. Probably would've been better had they made holidays pre-order only.
Eh, it was ok. Ribs were cold, rest was average... Not seeing what all the hype is about here.
I was lucky enough to get taken here while visiting for business. The ribs are out of this world! I'm super grateful our host took us here.
Best ribs and smoked chicken in Birmingham!
Great flavor, long lines, food brought out really quickly.
Best BBQ restaurant in town. Love the vibe here and food is super Delicious. Can't wait to visit again.
Food was great and excellent service.
I've eaten at the best BBQ joints America has to offer. From the Carolinas to Memphis to Texas and this place doesn't hold up. Hipster BBQ for rich people who don't know any better.
Had lunch here on a Friday with a former boss. I now live out of BHM and was in town for a few days. The food was fantastic! We both got the rib sandwich and the ribs were the best. During our time, we both noticed that the smokey smell was quite bad in there, but it wasn't until we left and I got into the car that I realized how bad it actually was! My clothes had a super strong smoke smell, like I had just stood next to a campfire! I had one other appointment that afternoon and it was clear the smokey smell on my clothes was bothering others. I immediately had to take a shower once I got to my hotel and the clothes were relegated inside a plastic bag, inside the trunk because the smell was so strong! Please work on your ventilation for the kitchen!
Great service they stayed open after closing time to allow time to finish a great meal.
A wonderful quaint small hole in the wall place in delightful downtown Edgewood. All of the food is made there. For sides I had green beans & cabbage --- cooked Southern --- so, you know they were excellent. :) I had the smoked sausage -- throughly enjoyed.
Chicken, ribs, pulled pork, banana pudding: all great.
Best bbq I may have ever had
Great ribs and great mac'n'cheese!
Was not impressed. Didn't care for the sauce. It wasn't busy at 2 in the afternoon. The service was lackadaisical. BBQ was mushy.
I gave 5 stars because I didn't see where I could give it a 10. Excellent cuisine, mouthwatering ribs and the sauce is simply amazing. Strongly recommend this place. Service is great too.
Excellent BBQ...especially the pulled pork. It goes well with the sauce. Mac and Cheese was great as well as the coleslaw.
Always awesome and friendly staff. Best BBQ chicken in town.
Ive eaten here several times and used their catering more than once for family gatherings. food has always been good. Service has been friendly and fast
Chicken with white sauce. Nuff said. Being from Texas i know bbq chicken ya hear and this was eaily in the top 3 leg quarters ive had in my life.
The best bar-b-que anywhere!
Someone publication somewhere said it was one of the BBQ joints around. I don't know about it. But it's pretty solid.
The food was very good, as unusual. Loved the smoked chicken and baked beans. My son loved the ribs and baked beans. The employees were extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. One employee quickly replaced my cup one I showed him the leak. He was performing another task, stop and resolved my situation immediately and with a smile! Wonderful service. Wish there were more indoor sitting tables, otherwise, I had an enjoyable experience.
Really good barbecue. Ordered a rack and a half of the ribs. Ribs were very tasty and we like the barbecue sauce. We thought the ribs may have been a little over cooked only on the outside but we're not sure if that's the way it was supposed to be or not. Inside I found the meat on the ribs to be juicy and tender and very nice. Also tried the pulled pork sandwich. Excellent. I think the pulled pork is probably the best thing on this menu. Love that pulled pork sandwich. also try the potato salad which I thought was great. Tried the coleslaw also which we thought was very good. Overall great food, moderate ambience, fairly easy parking, this place is usually busy.
We arrived before opening and wasted some time at a nearby shop. Fifteen minutes after opening the line was out the door. This place is all about the barbecue and they have gotten it exactly right. Not much in the way of amenities, not many tables but Saw's is the place for barbecue in Bham.
Love this place! Always get good food and service.
Chicken + white sauce makes Saws my #1 choice restaurant in Birmingham. Plus the employees HUSTLE! Love it, keep doing what you do!
I've never had such a magnificent experience eating so much wonderful food that is likely to take weeks off of my lifespan.
Tried it for the first time. I heard so much about it. I was very disappointed. The mac and cheese tasted like it came from a box. The potato salad had a weird taste and texture and the barbecue sauce for the chicken tasted like sour mayo. I took my mom and daughter. They were also disappointed.
Very good Lots of meat of the sandwiches
Staff was wonderful and cool under pressure during 4th of July. Food is always excellent.
Great BBQ. Homemade Mac and cheese. Amazing. I was in town for work and came across this place
Great barbecue. Relaxing casual atmosphere.
I can see why Saw’s BBQ is one of Alabama’s best BBQ places. The ribs were wonderfully moist and tender. The flavor was overpowered however by the tomato and vinegar based sauce. The pulled pork was flavorful with a light smoke and smooth bite and pull. All meat in this two meat plate was drowning in the aforementioned sauce. The greens were a very sweet and vinegary side that was an unwanted surprise and the Mac and cheese left much to be desired. As stop number two in Alabama on our mini crawl it was a much wanted improvement to there completion south in Montgomery.
Divine! Super friendly staff. Anti fancy. Loved it!
Love their white bbq sauce!
I had the stuffed baked potato with chicken, vegetables and barbecue sauce and it amazed my dinner guests!!! My brother exclaimed: that’s not a potato, that’s a football! It was easily the biggest and the best stuffed potato of my life.
This was easily one of the top 5 BBQ stops I've ecer been to. Will be sure to return!
Great service and meal.
Loved the smoked wings with the Alabama White Sauce.
Good BBQ, very small so I suggest do a takeout
Just okay. Portions are small. Flavor is tamed. Ribs were just okay even for spare ribs. Nothing to write home about. If you dont know good Q you might be okay.
Absolutely everything we expected. Excellent BBQ, great atmosphere, and a staff that made us smile.
Great place to eat, excellent happy hour on Tuesday!
Saws Jukebox has delicious wings and fried okra.
No ac or it was broke, food was great but hard to enjoy in this heat.
We were in the Birmingham area for an event today and wanted to get something local to eat. My husband was in charge of this and picked Saw's BBQ and I am so glad that he did. This was some of the best BBQ we have ever had!! We all got the pulled pork, I got the stuffed potato, my husband got the plate and my daughter got the sandwich. The BBQ sauce was perfect, the pork was tender, and the sweet tea was just right. It was a little pricey, but well worth it! Next time I am down that way I will be making another stop at Saw's!
Busy, but well worth it.
Best BBQ not only in town, but in the region IMO. The pork is second to none, but the chicken is an extremely close second. The white sauce is fantastic.
Visited on Iron Bowl day.. only an hour before the game. Was incredibly busy and still got my food in time to be home, eat and settled in for the game. Always delicious. Always worth the wait.
Very good BBQ. We would have liked some of the traditional fare like French fries or onion rings. Service was good and quick. There are not many seats inside so sometimes it may be to crowded to find a seat inside, especially if there are more than 4 in your party.
Best white bbq chicken I've ever had!!!!
Some of the best bbq in Alabama...smoked wings are great!
Macaroni and cheese is a must! This place is in a cool location however parking can be limited. The food is delicious and always fast friendly service.
Very good. Ribs, Chicken and Pulled Pork was amazing. Was in town for the UAB vs. Rice game and wanted to find a local place to eat.
Very good! It's a small place. But busy. Clean! There are seats outside. I would go back!!!!!
Pricy, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five I really enjoyed the chicken with white sauce. The place was packed on a Sunday afternoon.
Best BBQ I've had yet hands down.
I was waiting to visit this establishment, and I FINALLY made it! This is a small "hole-in-the-wall", AND it has character! The food is unique and amazingly deliciious! The bbq sauce is vinegar-based. It is definitely one of the best bbq places I have been to. The employees are friendly! And, lastly, I was impressed with the restroom. It has a contemporary, CLEAN, cute out-house vibe to it. This is a bucket-list restaurant for anyone who visits Bham. 5-stars, especially for the service AND the food!
Pulled pork was good. Sausage was good as well. They only have one BBQ sauce and it had a very strong vinegar flavor. Sauce is put on the meat so you taste it.
This is legitimately the best barbecue in Birmingham. I don't care what anyone else says. Make sure to get the barbecue chicken with the white sauce (mayonnaise based). It is the specialty of Northern Alabama and also of this place. The chicken is so full of smokey flavor and so tender, even the white meat. And the sweet and tangy white sauce is a great complement. The ribs were also good. They were fall off the bone tender (so I think they were braised first).
Our favorite go to place no more. Cold and tough food tonight.
Please could you always have enough rids. Don’t go late or you will miss out. Love this place.
Absolutely. The. Best. Barbecue. If I had a “last meal” I would not think twice about ordering Saw’s bbq and side. The veggies will make you think you’ve had desert. I’m not a Mac-n-cheese fan. But, they’ve taken it to another level. Arrive early. The demand is high and seating limited. And expect to smell delicious the rest of the day. The smoke that makes it so awesome will stay with you if you dine in. But...It’s. Worth. It. Do not try to capture the melt in your mouth greatness on your phone. Pic’s fail. Words fall way too short. Saw’s is a must.
Such good BBQ. The pulled pork is full of flavor and their aides are epitome of comfort food. The location is small, but that's no big deal. Food was delivered with fast, friendly service and located in the downtown area of Homewood. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing! Best bbq I've had in a long time. The ribs are my favorite but I have tried most of the other meats too. You will not be disappointed.
Good food. Comfort foods. Great pork and chicken.
This is a small busy shop that sells barbecue. I got the smoked chicken with white barbeque sauce, which I did not like. The bbq sauce tasted and had the same consistentcy as ranch. Their bread was literal slices of white bread. Their dessert is banana pudding, but you could see the "Great Value" pudding boxes they used. Others I went with enjoyed the brisket and had okay remarks regarding the ribs, but I would not recommend.
The food is great, yes you're kinda rushed just a little bit, but considering the amount of people that are in and out, plus the small size, I think they do a fantastic job of taking care of business. The menu doesn't show everything, as they write specials up on the boards. I recommend the sampler if you've never eaten here before. Love it when my job takes me through homewood!!!
Iconic BBQ of Birmingham. This is a very small location with an ambience that takes you back to the old days. It is clean and friendly while you rub shoulders with your fellow diners. The restaurant staff are excellent and friendly making the experience feel like you are visiting family.
From Louisville, KY-stopped in Alabama just for this place on our way to Florida. It's worth every mile in between! The sweet blonde lady at the counter made us feel right at home!
I had the pulled pork it was tasty but not enough sauce! Mr had chicken with with bbq sauce and same thing not enough sauce... friendly service and chill environment
Great little hole in the wall, BBQ joint. Get the white sauce... it is CRAZY good!
Some of the most delicious food I've had from a really great Bar b que restaurant. Fabulous service. We also got take out recently for a group that meets weekly. Everyone loved it.
This place was great. Awesome location and a friendly staff. Pulled pork was amazing and any bbq joint with White bbq sauce is a winner. Definetly check this place out!
May very be the best BBQ restaurant we've visited yet!
Absurdly amazing food and fast and nice staff across the board.
Great local place to eat, in a very unique setting and small town. Will definitely go back. BBQ sandwich was very good. Lots of meat and enjoyed the sauce.
Out standing Food.. a little hold in the wall but the food is good. Took my dad for his Birthday we all enjoyed our food.. will return
Great BBQ stop in if you get a chance ribs and chicken are great
Great food as usual. Love it. Person at the counter is less than friendly.
A few years ago we were a hangry couple on our way to visit a friend in northern Alabama from Florida and needed food. Yelp reviews pointed us to Saws but my wife didn't want bbq. She was leery about the white bbq sauce too. Now we stop here every chance we get and usually buy a cooler to bring food home in. My wife and I always orders extra white sauce now too. Love this place! The loaded bakers are insane.
Great bbq.. one of the best
Food is good and the service is fast. You do have to order at the front so do not expect a waiter/waitress. They also serve LARGE portions of food. Perfect spot to go for lunch!
The food was AMAZING. Definitely worth the stop. I was so excited to find Boudin there!! All in all my family had the BBQ chicken, ribs, boudin. greens, potato salad, mac and cheese a a hot dog. I can say all were very very good aside from the hot dog which I didnt eat. However my very picky son ate it so it had to be good
White and Red sause choices both absolutely great. Fast service with great helpful smiling employees. Huge portion size for price.
Friendly service, Great Food, Best Turnip greens I've ever had, Had Rosted Chicken with White BBQ Sauce and Deviled Eggs, I Highly Recommend it. A++++ Loved it. :)
The sampler platter gives you the best of everything --and the baked potatoes are huge.
Really good barbecue. My favorite bbq place in Birmingham for sure!
Ribs were tender and service outstanding.
Saw's is my favorite local BBQ since moving to Birmingham. The space is tight and seating is first come first serve. Ordering is simple at the counter and they bring it to your table. The white sauce on the chicken is a must try. The sweet tea is southern approved.
Good Quality Meat...Not a fan of their Sauces...
Smoked chicken and pork are outstanding. Ribs are excellent, sauces are fantastic. Portions are large, worth every penny. Mac & Cheese is best you'll buy out anywhere. Love this place.
Best BBQ in Birmingham if I had to choose! This place never lets me down!
The food is amazing. Definitely will be back.
Amazing BBQ. I had the smoked chicken with white sauce, request extra white sauce, that stuff is gold
This place was amazing! I had the pulled pork with turnips and grits. The Pale Ale with this delicious meal was perfect. The service was friendly and fast. This is a go to place for sure.
So good! The lady taking the order was awesome! The food was amazing! We got there right before dinner rush, so we got our food really fast! My husband and I will definitely be going back soon!
Couldn't decide so had to go with the sample platter; three meats and two sides. The pulled pork was okay but the ribs were very good and the crown jewel was the chicken topped with that white sauce. DELICIOUS.
Amazing bbq recommended by a friend. Everything was great. Parents, my child had 3 helpings of green beans if that tells you anything.
Damn good Alabama bb-q. I went to the downtown location small inside but well serviced by the cashier. The white bb-q sauce was unreal. Well worth the money.
The food was excellent. Highly recommend
Wonderful, friendly staff. Loved the white BBQ sauce. Between everyone in our group we were able to try chicken, ribs, and pulled pork. Large pieces of meat in the chicken sandwich and pulled pork sandwich, definitely no skimping going on here. Excellent flavor to the meat. The only disappointment was the side dishes. The deviled eggs, mac and cheese, and baked beans were a little bland. Still worth it and we'll probably stop in again the next time we pass through
The best BBQ around -- no question. Their white barbecue sauce is amazing, and I highly recommend the chicken baked potato with white barbecue sauce. Saw's is the real deal.
My favorite bbq
Saw's is one of the best barbecue joints I've been to in Alabama. The ribs and the pulled pork ous consistently full of flavor and easy to chew. The chicken is always juicy. Price is competitive for the area. It's worth going a little bit out of your way.
My co-workers and I went during lunch. There was nine of us. The place is small, but they were able to accommodate us. The food and customer service were great! I would definitely go there again.
They were fake, their was cameras and as soon as the cams left, the service went down in quality
Food is great. I love the banana pudding but the last time I went it had no cookies or and only 3 banana slices.
Good food. The location of the restaurant is in the middle of town and parking is very difficult to find.
Great music, delicious meats and White BBQ sauce! Don't miss out on this!
Try the white sauce. All was great.
The banana pudding is sooooo f'in delicious...every serving size it comes in is considered a single serving to me...
Great, and in such a great location. Unpretentious and delicious.
Amazing. I had brisket and chicken and it was so good. The white BBQ sauce is fantastic.
The stuffed baker was good. Upset they took the beef brisket off the menu.
Unassuming BBQ joint with friendly staff. The Saw's Sampler was Excellent ... Ribs and Pulled Pork smothered in sauce, and Chicken Wing with White BBQ Sauce. The Mac N Cheese and Banana Pudding were delicious.
The best bbq i have ever had period! You cannot go wrong with the pulled pork!
I Don't know who only gave 4.5 STARS but I just left a small BBQ place where the food was top notch and the service was A 1. SAW'S IS A 5 STAR BBQ JOINT. There was a customer getting take out wanted to make sure it was plastic ware because she said she wasn't going to make it home. Hahahaha. Now you tell me if a place has food that GOOD that a customer can wait to get home before it's all gone. How is it a 4.5 STAR restaurant. Well I'm waiting. Hahahaha. Thanks for the Greens and Banana Putting after you guys were closed. Love Ronnie Eanes.
We used Saws Catering for our sons Wedding Rehearsal dinner. Holly from the Homewood Saws Catering service was so awesome. She made a stressful night perfect. She took care of everything so we could enjoy the night with our guests. I highly recommend anyone having an event to use them and her. Awesome food and service.
Excellent bbq. That white sauce is so freaking good..
Whack. Bland and lacked seasoning. Macaroni and cheese is horrible. Baked beans had zero ingredients or flavor. The best thing on the menu was the soda. And that's because it was already done when it was delivered.
The food is good, it's decent bbq but the staff was very rude. The restaurant was also pretty dirty.
This place is truly a hole in the wall restaurant but their food is really good. Not a large menu but what they do they do really well. BBQ & typical sides.
Fantastic, BBQ! Carolina style, vinegar based sauce. Delicious!! Don't know what to get? Get the sampler, with chicken pulled pork and 2 ribs on one plate, plus sides! Can't do any better! Ton of food!
We get the pork bakers to go. Huge potatoes cooked just right with lots of really good BBQ on them. Chopped spring onions & sour cream under the BBQ but potato & BBQ are what it's about! Very good - expect to stand in line at dinner time. They have sandwiches and ribs also.
Some of the best restaurant bbq I've had. The white bbq sauce on chicken is bomb.
Great food and great staff
Delicious food and great neighborhood vibe.
White bbq and chicken, what a beautiful combo!
Best BBQ in the state. Banana pudding is also amazing.
I legitimately say best ever in a number of reviews, but in the case of Saw's ribs I have never had a rib this tender and flavorful. I strongly you suggest ordering with no sauce, or sauce on the side, because they really don't need anything in them
The smoked half Chicken is perfection!
