This time I went my my original choice of Pork n Greens. And they didn't disappoint. The BBQ is just so good and juicy. The cheesy grits and the greens are a perfect combination with the pork and sauce. Topped with onion strings....omg. Others tried the burger which I had a bite of and it's def something to try.

Go and have a sweet tea chichen, and be sure to order a side of onion strings. Take them two doors down to Avondales and grab you favorite brew~

Not only is their BBQ good, but so is EVERYTHING else on the menu! Stuffed potatoes, wings, etc. You are missing out if you haven't eaten here yet!

The food here was passable but very forgeteble. The experience was not forgetable because the host gave us the impression we were second class citizens and and attending to us as customers was beneath him. The host and kitchen staff had degrees of long braided black hair and hair nets were nowhere visable. I like to try different and unique... More

Among some of the best items are the chicken wings, pork and greens and sweet tea chicken sandwich. Be prepared to have alternate choices as sometimes ingredients run out.

Great BBQ pork/chicken. Wings incredible. A lot of creative dishes, sweet tea chicken sandwich is a lock.

Saw's is an eclectic stop but well worth the trip! Choices of pulled pork, chicken, ribs, lots of sides and even shrimp and grits. So good that now there are three locations providing the same great BBQ: Saw's Soul Kitchen in Avondale, Saw's BBQ in Homewood, and Saw's Juke Joint in Crestline. Great family place.

I had the smoked chicken plate with a side of cheese grits. Everything tasted great. The banana pudding is sooooo tasty! Like the other reviews said, it's a very small place with a steady flow of people coming in and out, even at 2:30 in the afternoon.

Saw's soul kitchen had been well reviewed so we decided to try it on our visit to Birmingham. The restaurant although eclectic is quite run down. There are other very nice restaurants in the vicinity. The food was fine, although in my opinion a little pricey for what you get. The food was served on styrofoam plates with plastic knives...
