Steven Moore

Always great food and atmosphere. BBQ, greens, sweet tea chicken,sounds crazy try it you will not be disappointed. Chicken and greens, catfish and greens all great. The wings are to die for! Try it once and you'll go back again and again.


Pork and greens

Tina Freeman

Can’t beat their wings absolutely amazing! Great atmosphere!

Lindi Pearson

#1 bbq restaurant in Birmingham and the Avondale location is by far the best. I will only get bbq from saws Avondale location from now on since it has ruined all other bbq for me now. If you haven't been, you need to go immediately. But be aware that you may be addicted by the time you leave. I live in vestavia so it's kind of a drive (10 to 15 min), but it's well worth it. Saws and tazikis are really the only places I don't get sick of eating that aren't like nice sit-down restaurants. I have even had it as lunch for the entire office, but I can't remember if they offer catering or if I just made a big to-go order. Nevertheless, it's a good idea to do for a larger group of people


Great service and Food! First time visiting and will definitely be back with family and friends. Smoked rubbed wings were delicious along with the fried whole okra and Street corn!!! Every thing was wonderful! My server Karen was very friendly and informative on what to eat. Super nice

Karla Gallegos

The food was wonderful, love that place.

Linda Gosa

Love the pork 'n greens. Fun location. Good service.

Rickardo Yoder

Great southern hospitality! Yummy food! Kind wait staff!


Such a great atmosphere out on the patio, which is also pup friendly. The server we had was extremely kind as soon as we sat down she brought out my Boxer a bowl of ice water. Now the food was fantastic, I had the pork n greens and some wings. Highly recommend both of these options. If I am passing through again I will definitely be making another trip to SAW's!

Jim Powell

The pork and greens is awesome! If you want a taste of The South then you've got to try it. Pork on top of collards, on top of grits. Topped with fried onions. The atmosphere is relaxed and the place can get crowded during peak hours but the wait is worth it.

Brian Yaehne

Good BBQ, great service, very friendly, bread pudding and banana pudding is to die for as they say...

David Seidel

Love the barbecue love the atmosphere everything is good about this place. Highly recommended!!

Neil Greathouse

I’m trying to figure out how to plan my next family vacation around these wings! No lie - I’d rather fly here for the wings, than go to a beach on the gulf coast. The atmosphere is unique & laid back...and the pulled pork is smoked to perfection.

Alvaro Gonzalez

One of the best places to take a burger in Birmingham. Good service and quality.

Susan Berent

What a fun and delicious place! Wings! White barbecue sauce! Lee (Leigh?), the Scorpio, is the best waitstaff I've experienced in a long time!

Katrina Robbins

Always quick, pleasant service and great food...the pork and greens are a must!

Ben Heller

First time being in Birmingham and this place was awesome. Maybe the best BBQ I've had.

Kirk Conaway

Incredible atmosphere. The best wings I've ever had!


Sweet tea chicken is the bomb !!!

David Glover

Always great food, great service, and great beer.

William Jones

I was blown away. I am usually not a fan of BBQ restaurants but really enjoyed Saw's. Came here for lunch with some co-workers. The wings with the white BBQ sauce was fantastic. Also got a pulled pork sandwich that was great.

Jeff Schexnayder

Pretty good BBQ but like most BBQ joints they're a little higher on prices. Try the smoked wings, they're AWESOME, but pricey.

Albert Coltrane

Best pulled pork in Birmingham. Best I have had in Alabama. Fast service and a surprise. Turnip greens are excellent with BBQ. Who woul'da thought.

A Hall

The food was fantastic and the staff were awesome.

Christine Escalante

Didn't like that before we could be seated, we had to wait for another table get their drinks. Wasn't impressed with the food. And what I really wanted was a chili baked potato, and was told they were out of potatoes. A big portion of the menu is potatoes, if you aren't going to have potatoes then you don't need your menu have a big portion of potatoes. I then ordered a Carolina dog(hot dog) which was with chili, mustard, and slaw. I asked for it without the slaw and when I received it it had slaw on it. Sent it back. When I got it back, the hot dog bun was wide open and bun was soggy, just looked like it was just slapped on the bun. Then when we were ready to go, it took the waitress at least 30 min to bring our to go drinks, a to go box, and the bill.

Jason Turner

A great stop on our way from Georgia to Texas! Definitely worth the extra time! Got to try the fried okra! The burgers were great buy my favorite was the Pork and Greens!! Our server, JC was amazing! He recommended several things and made the experience even better! Thanks Alabama for a great food stop!

Danita Crear

Meh, it was okay. It certainly didn't live up to the hype. I had the pork with greens and grits. I'd been looking forward to this particular dish for quite some time. We went after lunch on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn't very busy, but there was a lot of staff there just standing around. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.

Kristen DeMaria

Great food! Loved the pulled pork and greens!

Manon Heroux

I was told it was the place to go to get good BBQ in Birmingham. I was not impressed with the menu at all. I also found a sharp bone in my chicken. Not impressed at all.

Bryant Gilmer

Small local crowd. Good pours from the bars.

Patten Carrie

Great pulled pork sandwich!! Staff was great attentive & pleasant. We booked a group same day and they handled us well with no waits for our food; all orders were correct and no delays for drinks or refills. Separate checks provided too!


Good food. Definitely try the wings. My only recommendation is they need to get Heineken on tap.

christopher warren

A stop on every visit - nana pudding !

Pam Pogue

First time to go & Saw's didn't disappoint. We both had the Saw's burger & homemade chips. Excellent!

Ashton Rowcliffe

We were heading to Atlanta and were hungry before we got on the road. We called Saws & ordered BQ chicken to go. One on a bun & the other without a bun. Also ordered a side of greens. They give you plenty of chicken & it is delicious! The pickup at Saws was fast & easy. I recently attended a Garden Club meeting were the hostesses served this chicken with Saws delicious white sauce. The greens were tasty.

Quentin Collins

Always consistent and delicious . The Saw's family is the best BBQ in Bham. Go see Sam at the bar or hang w Sean. Good people.

Walker Cole

The best Saw's in my opinion. Often live music, eclectic space. Always amazing food. And in a really great location. Can't get here when it's not packed, but the service is excellent.

Andrea Crawford

I would have given 5 stars, but I have an issue with the amount of styrofoam waste they generate. I understand you might have to use disposable items, but why not paper??? They do however, have some awesome smoked chicken!! Loved chicken and greens. Great fried green tomatoes too.

Brian Kenney

Great venue, amazing food, attentive service!

Neit Hodges

Nothing too special. Fried green tomatoes with the little mayo and ketchup sauce was good. I didn't feel welcome by the server and the guests seemed the same...looking at me as if...why is this "beautiful brown woman" here? Because I am! Lol

Ted Louis

There are three things to know about this place, in order of my frustration. Number one, seriously try this, when you attempt to call in an order they never pick up the phone. You have show up in person to place your order and... wait... and wait... and wait. Number two, parking is extremely difficult. Number three, they are simply overpriced. Compare them to anyone else on quality versus price on a pound of chopped pork, and it’s simply not worth the hassle.

Eric Heltzel

Got the loaded potato. You should get the loaded potato if you like stuffed potatoes and smoked pork and chicken. BBQ here is awesome. Cool vibes. There’s indoor and outdoor seating. Nice setup to go listen to music. Great beer selection.

Gulberne Photography

I was impressed. The food was really good, the place was clean, and the server ‘miss Shannon’ was excellent. I’ll definitely go back on my next tour.

Sherman Owens

Smoked wings were great. Ordered carry out but atmosphere inside seemed pretty cool. Manager was extremely nice. Bartender took my order and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Ordered almost $300 for a company lunch and some orders were very particular. We received everything we asked for. Everyone at the lunch loved the food and we will definitely be back.

Jerry Brady

Food was great, service was great. Beer was ice cold

John Hadden

The food is consistently great, and the staff is always amazing. A great place to spend an hour on a Sunday.

Kathleen Mullinax

Great food, great service, great fun!

Boone Ott

Really really good bbq. Tried the smoked chicken wings and the pulled pork plate with fries. The wings were incredible, pulled pork waa decent, and fries were great. The Saw's Sauce is good but you've got to try the white sauce. Really good service too. Nice bartender.

Rutland Walker

The pork and greens! Wish I had remenbered to take a picture of it. Took a client to lunch here today. Had never been. I'll be back!

Tim Cain

Ate here tonight. We were told this was the place. it had no sauce on anything. Went back and got their special sauce. A watery sauce like nothing I have ever had. I have eaten a lot of good BBQ and this isn't it.

Jason Vandiver

Great spot! Delicious southern dishes and a ample selection of the hard stuff. Excellent food and our service today was some of the best I've had in a while. Our server made excellent suggestion from the menu and took good care of us.

Shella Sylla

Best wings ever!

Dan Ferguson

Sweet tea chicken sandwich! It was amazing. They had live music and good service when we went on a Sunday around lunchtime. Very cool atmosphere. We will Definitely be back.

Carl Etheredge

Great BBQ! There's a good reason this place is always packed.

Bradley Maddox

Fun atmosphere to enjoy music or ballgames. Entrees are consistently above average. Everyone should try the fried okra and pork n greens!

Martin Sandoval

Very good guys

Kazuo Moriya

This is a great restaurant/bar. The food is great and they got great selections of beers and drinks. It is very family friendly but also could be romantic. I highly recommend this place to everyone. And of course, I always really enjoy performing with my band here...!!!

Tammy Cook

Outstanding pulled BBQ sandwich and great smoked wings with white bbq sauce! Best ever fried green tomatoes! Great service and seeing Taylor Hicks was the icing on the cake!

bev murphy

Bread pudding is freaking awesome. Great food, service and staff. Ask for Max

Jason Whitehurst

Smoked Wings--incredible! Pork n Greens is next level good

Gary Hosking

I was not excited about the sause options, so I tried the fish sandwich. This was the best blackened sandwich I have ever hard. If in area I highly recommend

Smitty Werbenyankermanjenson

GREAT FOOD! Better atmosphere. Decent service. Get the BBQ.

Adele D'Eon

At first I was disappointed because their menu was different from typical BBQ joints. They don’t have brisket and ribs, and instead of plates with sides, sides are sold separately. The wings, fried tomatoes, burger and sweet potato fries were delicious, though. You will have a tasty meal here if you’re not expecting the usual variety.

John Laine

Now changed. A very unfriendly head bartender, takeout order guy seemed bothered to have to take the order. They don't care for your business unless you're young -- & want beer. A friendlier, very young bartender told us -- a party in their 60s & 90s -- that they hadn't answered our multiple calls to place a takeout order because "maybe we didn't hear the phone -- and we're told not to answer it when we're busy. Best to just come in & have a beer while you wait!" Sure. Colorful beer crowd. Looked like a Duck Dynasty/ lumberjack hollow family reunuion on a Saturday afternoon in Mountain Brook. Except louder & darker.

Drew Lasater

Great BBQ, good atmosphere. Highly recommended. My favorite dishes are the pork & greens and the chicken wings. (The wings are a little pricey, but they taste REALLY good)

Ryan Feldman

Friendly staff. Good food. Came out very quick and tasted great! Always my first stop when I fly into Birmingham.

Brad Smedley

Authentic southern BBQ with ambiance to match. A must do stop when in B'Ham!

Bruce Moore

Great food and service

Don Sowers

Great place for dinner and drinks... or lunch and drinks now it seems! Great atmosphere and great food! The parking lot is almost always full during business hours, but worth the wait!

Michael Johnson

Great atmosphere! Menu has a wonderful selection. Friendly staff. The shrimp & greens, and pork & greens plates are amazing!

Tom Driver

Visiting from out of town and had lunch here with a couple local friends. The Juke Joint did not let me down. Had the smoked wings which were perfectly crunchy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside with the just the right amount of sauce. Speaking of sauce: the white sauce is to die for. Unfortunately, didn't get any apps and we were too full for dessert, but the next time I come through Birmingham I will definitely stop!

Cadeyrn Craig

If you're in Birmingham and looking for some BBQ, you should check this place out. Had the pork plate under specialties and it was so good. The baked potatoes are crazy big and tasty too. And the chicken is excellent. Enjoy!

Chris Golden

It's a standard beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, special sauce cheeseburger, but it is anything but average. As a self proclaimed burger connoisseur, I've tried every cheeseburger in town that's been hyped. The Saws Juke Joint Cheeseburger is the gold standard I compare the rest to. If you want to scratch the burger itch but aren't starving


Food: Amazing flavors and definitely southern food. I had the Fried green tomatoes, smoked sausage with broccoli and turnip greens, and banana pudding. The smoked sausage didn't have as much flavor and needed to be smoked longer. The greens were amazing as well as the banana pudding. Service: very attentive and helpful staff. Definitely recommend going here. Very pleasant and it has a good bar area as well.

Ashley Smith

Very chill atmosphere, great food, nice options, price is fairly decent makes for a good place to go on a date night. Has a bar if you want a few booze paired with some good food and a great atmosphere

Mike Hiatt

This place use to be good. It was just awful. As soon as we walked in the hostess was making excuses about the shift change. The pork and grits plate I usually order significantly shrunk in size and flavor. My wifes chicken sandwich was full of chicken fat and her sweet potato fries had a hair in it. We seemed to be rushed out of there, because apparently a shift change was about to happen and as our waitress said, " I have other things to do." As a customer it is not my business or problem about an upcoming shift change. All businesses have shift changes and you work as you always do. Will definitely not be going back. Birmingham has many great food options, so customer service and good food quality should be a top priority.

Hall Jackson

SAW's benefits from the hype train and younger social media engaged patrons. There are BBQ stands in trailers all over the state that put out more honest 'cue with years of love and a smoke technique done right. Birmingham has good BBQ that can stand up to other regional styles, but a cookie cutter product designed for mass appeal doesn't help the city's credibility. Twenty years ago, Dreamland would be dry ice packed and shipped for weddings and board meetings all over the US because it was well known. SAW's is successfully carrying that mantle for the present day, by people who are savvy enough to recognize that's not something to be proud of.

Rebecca Crawford

Went here while visiting my bestie. The food and drinks were amazing!!! I had the crispy chicken salad and fried pickles, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Jake Taylor

This is one of those places you go out of your way to eat at. It’s where I take people to eat the first time they come to Birmingham. The wings and the sweet tea chicken sandwich are the absolute best things there. The pork and greens is also a solid pick. When okra is on the menu it’s always a favorite of the table, but it’s whole okra not cut up. The atmosphere is real laid back and the patio is a great on a clear day.

Adam McNutt

Awesome food laid back atmosphere great quantity

Beverly Hicks Burch

Love, love, love this place. Their cheese grits with greens and pork is out of this world.

Lori Hicks

Great server named Max The food was awesome

Teressa Gamblin

I first got a taste of this at their food truck...Had to have it for the next 2 days in a row. And OMG!!!! Their macaroni and cheese

Katherine Boles

Wings are smoked, tender, and delicious. Some of the best in town and served with white sauce drizzled over the top. Pictured with onion rings which are very thin and delicious. The sweet tea fried chicken sandwich competes with Chick Fil A. You can’t go wrong. If the fried okra is on the menu, it’s a must for an appetizer!! The best thing on the menu hands down is the chicken and greens. You have to try at least once. A layered mountain of grits, greens, chicken, red sauce (suggest subbing for white), and topped with a pile of onion rings. Saw’s has a fun atmosphere and stays packed from Thursday to Sunday.

Jamie Stewart

Went to dinner on a Saturday evening. My first impression was that it must be good because the parking lot was packed and there were a lot of people. We had about a 45 minute wait, but it was worth it. The atmosphere is simple but not unpleasant. Very busy and a little loud. The waitress was pleasant and made sure we were taken care of refilling drinks and checking on us often. The food was excellent southern fare. Great BBQ and sauce. Nice sized portions at a decent price. No complaints. We will be back!


Take a group of friends and order EVERY appetizer to share. Kid you not. The best fried okra, fried pickles, and fried green tomatoes I've ever had. And the sauce with them is divine! Your waistline may not be happy, but your mouth will be!

Velle 47

The saw burger is definitely my favorite on the menu along with their sweet tea

Donna Farris

The food and service are always amazing here! Quite pricey for me for lunch, but food is that good.

hannah d

Super yummy for a fair price!!!!! Everything is made quickly. Great service. Nice atmosphere and lively!!!!! Has parking on the outside

Mike Baucom

Outstanding pulled pork and smoked chicken! The greens are fantastic, cheese grits excellent, and the service was great as well! A must try for anyone in Birmingham.

Bruce McMahon

Short wait tonight, no band so it was not loud, and the atmosphere is really nice. The barbeque is awesome and everything else is great too!

Will Dow

Good food but never answers when you try to call in for take-out. Insanely frustrating.

Rhonda Crawford

Great food good price

Stephen Early

The wings at Saws Juke joint are NEXT LEVEL good. These wings are so good that you need to go out of your way to eat these. The sweet potato fries also have amazing flavor, and are the perfect texture. Parking at this location can be quite tricky, so if you’re going for lunch, try and get there before 11:30 or 11:45. Service is hit or miss. There is one waitress there who is next level bad. Any time I am seated in her section, I know I’m going to be in for the long haul.

Drake Kinsley

We had a lunch there and the food was delicious. This is one of my favorite place to eat in Birmingham. Always fresh and fun place to eat and drink. Great place to hang out with friends and family. The service was excellent, our waiter was so kind. I hope to visit again soon.

Donna Horton

Pricey but very good!

Dylan Sexton

Food, service, and atmosphere were wonderful. Excellent.

Lincoln Parrott

Always delicious and great service. My favorite BBQ in town!

Tint Pro

Always a good time and food is great. Yes it’s crowded, yes it’s loud, yes they serve food on a throw away plate. It’s call a Juke Joint! It’s crowded because it’s popular, it’s loud because they have live music, the food is better quality than styrofoam deserves it’s a Juke Joint. Enjoy it

Rita Hinson

I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which came with a generous helping of meat...very good too!

LaTonia James

My husband found this jewel during our trips to my doctor's appointment. Food was delicious.

Michael Gary

All you need to do to confirm this is a great restaurant is look at the jam-packed parking lot. The Pork and Greens selection is so good it's decadent.

Todd F

Very good pulled pork. Their white sauce was delicious. Don't miss out on the fried green beans. They are one of the highlights of the menu. Very savory greens, always a important sign of a good bbq place. For deserts we tried the bread pudding and their banana pudding. Both were excellent. Service was good, friendly and fairly fast, even though the place was packed.

Lisa Henderson

The place was crowded, 1.5 hour wait which was only an hour. We were shown to our table and received our order shortly after ordering. Great service, great atmosphere, great food!

Sheri Arnold

Interesting menu, great beer selection, cool it.

Lindsey Burk

Great atmosphere, amazing barbecue, and even better sides. This will definitely become a regular stop.

Marc & Casie

The sweet tea chicken!

Freeman Presson

Saw's (all locations) is at the top of the BBQ world. Anything involving pork on their menu is going to be succulent and satisfying. I only bemoan the lack of ribs. The juke joint (oldies on the jukebox) has a classic bar with a lot of craft beers and interesting cocktails. If you don't feel like BBQ, the burgers are very nice, too. Staff is very congenial, service is very good.

Angelo V

Saws Juke joint is a great place to stop in for some beer, wings, and some live music. I love the combo of fun bar and great food. Usually fun bars have terrible food. Not Saws Juke Joint. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Parking is shared with several other businesses, and could be tough. I look forward to going back and trying their other menu items.

dennis faulkner

Great food, great atmosphere

Lisa Pate

I’m 43 years old. Saw’s has best fried okra, fried pickles, and fried green tomatoes I’ve ever had in my life. They have best fried shrimp in B’ham. The burgers, chicken, and BBQ pork are all juicy and delicious and very reasonably priced. Love this place!

Jerry Tanner

Great food with great service should get you a 5 shouldn't it. I had the Pork n greens. great flavor on pork, great flavor on greens and the cheese grits were good too. But..., when you leave the stringy rib in the turnip leaf, so tough it requires a knife to cut, well that's just plain lazy cooking. I'll try it again and let you know...

Chris Semrod

Awesome comfort food. Jordan and Turner made the dining experience very enjoyable! Cheese grits collard greens and pulled pork was the best thing I had all weekend in birmingham. Two thumbs up!

Vern Gib

This restaurant was good flavor and the wait staff was on the ball!!! Food, drinks all showed up very quickly. My husband got the pulled chicken (if you don’t do mayo, ask them to leave the white sauce off). He said the chicken was fantastic!!! My son said the pulled pork was awesome!! I got the fried green tomatoes BLT and sweet potato fries they were perfect!! The banana bread pudding was tasty!!! The BBQ sauce is a runny sweet BBQ. That is expected on this side of the world!!! They have a thicker sauce in the back. You have to ask for it. music indoors!! Decor is awesome!! Our only complaint: If you sit outside you will be exposed to smokers. I feel the restaurant could set a smoke pit away from the outside tables out of courtesy to people eating on the patio.

Dee Dodd

It's ok....we had heard a lot of good reviews about it ..but we were not that impressed.

Stephanie Engle

This restaurant is the best!!! The fries okra and fried green tomatoes are amazing!! The sweet tea fried chicken sandwich is delicious! Right now this is our favorite restaurant and we live in Huntsville, AL.

Randy Sims

The food was good with good beer choices and live entertainment. My loaded BBQ potato was big and flavorful. The fried okra appetizer had the vegetable sliced length wise and served with dipping sauce. Saw's had a few seafood dishes, served on grits, that some others at my table ordered that looked great. My wife and I thought the BBQ was average but the presentation of the meals were appealing which leads to my slightly above average rating.

Bill Kelley

Quality of the food has not declined at all since they opened. I think it's the best pulled pork around.


My favorite barbecue place in Birmingham. My favorite is the loaded chicken baker. Tons of flavor, the chicken is very tender, and you get a ton of food for your money. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu though. Also, It's a very cool atmosphere and place to hang out, and the staff are always very helpful and friendly.

Andy Reidler

This was my first visit and will also be my last visit. I had to wear my coat inside because it was cold inside the building. Might be a good place for lunch but truly lacking for dinner because they only offer sandwiches, salads and baked potato's. Clearly the cost of the food was not reflected in the quality or quantity of the food. My co-worker got the soup and grilled cheese and he described the grilled cheese sandwich as lacking. Clearly there are much better places to spend my food dollars, especially someplace that is warm inside the building.

Madison Parks

I've of the best and most inventive BBQ restaurants you will ever find.

Kayla Biggers

I had the smoked chicken sandwich and fried green tomatoes. My food was amazing. My husband got a pork potato which was also excellent. My kids said the chicken tenders were the best they've ever had.

Luck Sale

Delicious food, outstanding atmosphere, and the best customer service! Great job you guys! We will return!

Samantha McDaniel

Large group accommodated quickly; were not lingering, so ordered right away and food arrived for the whole table in 15 minutes! Everyone was happy with their meal - I just ate an appetizer - fried green tomatoes. 5 large slices and excellent roumelade(sp) sauce. Excellent all the way around.

John Norris

While good, the restaurant in Edgewood has better food. I suppose the neighborhood feel and overall cool vibe of the place is overwhelming to a lot folks. With that said, my experience has been decidedly hit or miss...mostly due to the service. The last time my wife and I went there, we ended up leaving after not seeing a server for at least 10 minutes (set my timer after I had been there for some time). This despite trying to waive a server down, and telling the host. I suppose we were invisible that night...which isn’t as unusual as it should be in the restaurant industry. Other nights? It has been mostly a B or B minus effort on the service (in aggregate over about a half dozen visits), which is why this is hanging onto a 3 star in my book.

Renee Pickette

We always love coming to this place! Best burger around! The staff is very nice and they always go above and beyond to make sure that we are taken care of. We don't get to go eat there very often, but when we do, it's always sooooo good!

Russell Greer

pork and greens are amazing. bushwackers are really strong. plan accordingly!

Joey Medders

We'r enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Alana Siggers

Everything was soooo good.

Gretchen Wilson

We went in mid week for a late lunch. Smoked wings and wedge salad. It was a good time to go. Saw's can get very busy evenings and on the weekend. Have tried several items from the menu and have not been disappointed.

Jeff Canada

Awesome experience.. Food was outstanding!

Adam B

Full bar, got a margarita that was awesome. Food was pretty dang good. Good atmosphere, live music, cool place.

Brittany May

This place is a really cool laid back environment. If you go at a busy time of day you may have a bit of a wait yourself a favor...wait. They have a cool little bar scene inside but also have tables and chairs as well as booths. When they ask you if you would like an app for do...and that apps name is smoked wings! After your app, get the sweet tea chicken sandwich that is drizzled with Alabama white sauce!!! JUST DO IT!!! Not too badly priced for what you get and well worth any line you stand in. And last but not least....get the banana pudding! It’s to die for.

Lauren Gallagher

We shared smoked wings, fried pickles, and fried green tomatoes as appetizers. They were some of the best wings I’ve ever had. Great house “white sauce”! I had the pulled pork sandwich and sweet potato fries as an entree. Those were the best sweet potato fries I’ve ever had- hands down. The service was prompt and friendly. My only complaint is the noise level. However, that’s what you would expect from this kind of bar/restaurant and I’m not taking any stars away since the food was so excellent.

Danielle Pretorius

Great food, great drinks, great vibe

Park park

Food was excellent, waitress was busy.....

Gage Smythe

Always good. The space is a bit cramped but the food never disappoints.

jason hall

Loved it! The food was great but not too pricey.

Chad Dehoff

Had the sweat tea chicken sandwich. The food was fantastic and the service was just as good. If I was local, this would be the once a week place!

gail tucker

Went in to grab a baked potato, which was sold out. The loaded potatoe chips were recommended by the bartender. She was absolutely correct ...have them with white and red barbecue sauce. Very yummy

Deborah Otis

Only a little slow on service, but I appreciated the food!!

William Dennison

Best BBQ in the Ham. Or at least the best Alabama white sauce. This Saw's location actually has seating that won't make you claustrophobic as well.


Great food and service. Several TVs and a lively bar for the drinkers(those days are behind me). Food portions are far from skimpy. Might need a nap after your dining experience.

Gary P. Harrison Sr.

Its alright. Not much parking

Ryan Teel

I feel bad I'm just now discovering this place. They have fantastic live music and amazing wings. I'll be back.

paul biggs

Busy bar and barbecue restaurant. Casual and kid friendly. Everything I have had there has been good. Especially love the house specialty, which is barbecue and greens. This dish includes grits and delicious onion rings. Warning: no ribs. Good selection of draft beers and full bar. Recommend do not get table near door in cold weather.

Alicia Coleman

Great customer service & nice environment. The food was everything. My husband took me here for lunch & it was awesome. Fried green tomatoes to go. Come try it out, you want be disappointed. Thanks #deliciousatitsbest

Donald Tittle

Shrimp and greens and sweet tea chicken sandwich were outstanding. Service made it even better. The shop towels made a nice table covering. Very good vibe. Too bad it isn’t closer to Texas.


Anything you get there's great

Michael Swartz, Jr

If you get a chance to go to Birmingham Alabama check this place out. The food and staff are great

Bonnie Causey

Great food! Great sweet tea. Sweet tea fried chicken is great, I would definitely order again. Pulled pork has great flavor. The bbq sauce is very vinegar tasting I am not fan of it but everyone else might. The fried pickles are too salty. I do not recommend those. They will not change them out either, you will be stuck paying the price for food you can not eat. My tongue is burned by the oversalted pickles. I feel like they could of taken the pickles of my bill but the waiter refused. Otherwise, I will def come back.

Miss. BB

Very GOOD place to go and eat your meals very comfortable and the worker's are very nice and so are the foods and price of the foods is very affordable!!

Sarita Colvin

Not at all what we expected but pretty impressed! On a Saturday, we were able to experience a live band and Classic R&B on the PA. Our waitress Jackie was pretty awesome, our food was prompt, and the atmosphere was nice. The shrimp boil (special for the day) was okay and needed a little more seasoning. The pork stuffed baked potato made up in flavor and filled my guy right up! As for me, I was very satisfied with my vegetarian options of fried green tomatoes and veggie stuffed baked potato with no onion. And of course ...dessert. May try a differnt option in the future. Banana pudding was okay...Bananas & sugar. Will we return? Sure!! Good Price! Good Eats! Good Service!
