Chef Mike Wilson started cooking as a teenager at a cafe inside the store where his mom worked. He attended Johnson and Wales University, later taking jobs at Dean & DeLuca and Cooking Light before turning his barbecue hobby into a business. Saw's barbecue is North Carolina-style and served in a signature vinegar-based sauce. While there's only one restaurant location, serving pulled pork, ribs, chicken with white sauce, stuffed potatoes and home-style sides, Saw's Sauce is available online, in stores across Alabama and at other retailers throughout the country. Saw’s also boasts two sister restaurants in Birmingham — Saw’s Soul Kitchen and Saw’s Juke Joint.
