Last week I passed Saw's BBQ in Avondale and made a u-turn when I realized there wasn't a line out the door waiting to get inside. I grabbed my camera along with my purse. I placed my order, then while taking photos, I realized that the smiling lady at the cash register was enjoying a late lunch at one of the tables. We chatted and I learned that she had worked there for over 20 years when this tiny little place was the Quick and Split Bar B Que. Today Saw's does a booming business for lunch and dinner. If' you're in the Birmingham area, stop in and try it. Tell Tinka you saw her smiling face on this blog!
And yes Bob Crowe, we'll most certainly dine here when you and Carolyn come next week!
I have lived in Birmingham most of my life. I think it's a beautiful, friendly, and interesting place to live. I hope that my daily photographs portray the diversity of my hometown in a positive and artistic way.
