I ate here 4 years ago and thought it was amazing. Came back tonight - not so much. The ribs had a good flavor but very chewy. I eat and cook a lot of ribs, when chewy the fat is not rendered and makes for...More

Billed to be so much better than it really was. The lady at the register was so rude she'd be more at home in NYC (sorry New York) and the server calling out the wrong order number and dropping my plate in to another customers...More

The food is amazing and there is some great people watching. You can see everyone from politicians to CEOs to construction works. The chicken is AMAZING. Parking is tough and the staff are gruff and unfriendly. Otherwise I might have given them 5 stars.

I was part of a group of hungry golfers that went to Saw’s on a recommendation and WOW! I have had great Texas BBQ, great KC BBQ but this was arguably the best. The ribs were perfect but be aware that a half slab is...More

Small and close. Great BBQ menu. Worth the trip just to smell the BBQ. Can be crowded, but has call in take out. Very popular place. Must get they early for dinner to get the ribs - they sell out every night.

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.

I went with 7 coworkers from out of town and they all loved it. Even though they were about to close for the evening they accommodated us without fuss. Everyone had something different from the chicken with white sauce, loaded baked potatoes, sampler plate, ribs,...More
