SAW’s BBQ Homewood

saws-bbqSAW’s BBQ is a fantastic “hole-in-the-wall” barbeque restaurant. Founded in 2009 by North Carolina native, Mike Wilson, SAW’s BBQ has received rave reviews from Birmingham natives and tourists alike.

Walking in, it is clear that SAW’s BBQ is not concerned with a fancy interior. The seating is extremely limited, but luckily, we were able to find a table outside. Nate and I placed our orders at the counter, and our food was ready before we even sat down. I was a little apprehensive about my food being ready so quickly, but it was absolutely delicious.

I had the pulled pork plate with macaroni & cheese and potato salad. The pork was tender and moist, but it was the barbeque sauce that really made it awesome. It was a little thinner and spicier than the usual barbeque sauce, but it was perfect for dunking bread. Nate had the loaded baker, which he said was very tasty, but nothing to write home about.

Overall, SAW’s BBQ is a great barbeque joint. If you are craving barbeque, or want to show a non-Southerner what Southern barbeque is all about, SAW’s BBQ is the place to go. I give it 4 stars, and I’m looking forward to going back.
