Man, I can't put into words what this place does. Variety! Consistency! Every delicious mouthwatering adjective this southern man knows clouds my mind. My mouth waters at the thought of what I have and haven't had here. Not enough stars available. This eatery is perfect....More

Saw's soul kitchen has one of the best burgers I've ever had, savory smoked chicken wings, and awesome BBQ. The food is top notch, and some of the best you can get anywhere. The joint is really cool inside, but it's cramped. You will likely...More

The food is magnificent and you can quote me on that. But the secret weapon is their white sauce. Restaurants in Bham do it different, but Saws has mastered it and all others should strive for this standard.

Hole in the wall places are Ok and should be easier to keep clean but not so. Recommend that you go to Saws Juke Joint in Crestline area for the same food and nice and clean facilities.

"Hole in the wall" is an adequate description. From TripAdvisor reviews, I was expecting to be blown away. I wasn't. That said, it was a very good representative sample of Southern BBQ. Portions were large and the price was definitely right.

Some of the best pulled pork in Birmingham. Their pork stuffed baker is awesome and big enough for 2. Don't go for the ambiance as it is small crowded and dumpy.

This place is amazing for great food! The BBQ is perfect, the sides are very southern (which I love) and the servers are attentive and friendly. I would recommend for a business lunch if you wear a napkin over you shirt, for dinner with family,...More

It is a very loud environment but the food is worth it. The staff are not the best but again, the food is worth it.

No, on the sandwiches. BUT, there are other tasty options that probably work. Their "Pork and Greens" is one of the most popular dishes in the city, and should qualify. Their stuffed potatoes have options that don't... More
