A must try if you are visiting or live in Bham. Local dive with upscale bar food. Neat atmosphere, but very small. Try whatever protein you like with the greens. Put this place first on the list.

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.

I had the Pork and Greens. Excellent dish of BBQ pork, collards, cheese grits and onion rings with BBQ sauce. Amazing how all of these flavors worked together and complemented each other, none overpowering the other. Brilliant. Great service and nice neighborhood ambiance.
