Loved getting some great BBQ. The pulled pork and chicken were both very good. My little man loved the ribs for his 10th birthday. Try the banana pudding too! The slaw and potato salad were quite unique. I enjoyed them too.

We visited at the recommendation of a friend while evacuated from our home due to Irma. The place was packed! The food was outstanding. I highly recommend Saw's BBQ!

I was in area with my daughter who recommended the restaurant. We both ordered four ribs with two sides. They rib meat fell off the bones! The collard which were both of my sides were so good. They were perfectly seasoned. I would return.
