If you like fried food, you will probably like Saw's Juke Joint. It was a little too much for me.The chicken fingers were tough. The onion rings were good. Overall not a place I would want to visit again.

The staff was amazing, ensuring our entire group (3 families) was seated together. The wait wasn’t very long, considering it was a Saturday afternoon. The food was delicious and our waitress gave us some tasty recommendations.

This place was so cool, & chill. Parking was completely full, so you know it’s great. I had the fried green tomato BLT. I added the Alabama bbq sauce. They call it the all over sauce. It’s delicious, but coming from Texas I wouldn’t put...More

Fun bar / restaurant. A friend said I must have the "pork and greens". It was awesome. A layer of grits, then greens, then some of the best pulled pork ever, and thin onion rings. Huge serving, Very tasty. Exceptional BBQ quality. And the sweet...More
