The menu is filled with Southern style dishes with an interesting twist. The smoked wings are excellent. The burger is gigantic. And the pork n' greens is phenomenal. You can't go wrong at Saw's!

Saw's is a must try for anyone in Birmingham. The food is delicious, and the atmosphere is fun at every location. Saw's Juke Joint often has a live band and a great selection of beer. Perfect spot for family, friends, or couples.
