Celebrating National BBQ Day with Saw’s BBQ

Barbecue; it’s in our nature. At Shipt, we celebrate deep southern culture through our hospitality and good eating. We explore each new city in hopes of finding the ultimate southern charm component. A delicious BBQ meal!

Luckily, Saw’s Soul Kitchen is an easy 5-minute drive from Shipt’s HQ in Birmingham, Alabama! So, in honor of National BBQ Day, we decided to carpool to our favorite BBQ standby to celebrate.

With the Birmingham food scene growing, one thing remains the same. Saw’s BBQ is continuously hustlin’ and bustlin’ from open til close. This tiny restaurant is home to BIG flavors that one simply cannot ignore.

Saw’s BBQ opened in 2009 and has already been recognized nationally as one of the best in the biz. They landed #1 on Paula Deen’s list of 10 Best Barbeques in America and were dubbed the Best Barbeque in America by Men’s Journal.
This 2016 Traveler’s Choice Winner deserves all the recognition and here’s why:

The pulled-pork sandwich is our personal fave because it’s packed with smoked pulled pork mixed with Saw’s sweet barbeque sauce, topped with a dill pickle smushed between two fresh buns. Just thinking about it makes our mouths water.

Another favorite standby are the cheesy grits relished with steamy pulled-pork, collard greens, and fried onion. Need we say more? The pork and greens with a side of sweet potato fries and iced tea to make for a delicious combo. This Saw’s Specialty is a one-of-a-kind meal that will definitely leave you wanting leftovers!

We know National BBQ Day is only once a year, but we definitely celebrate it year-round at Shipt. Comment below and tell us what your favorite BBQ dish is!
