SAW’s Soul Kitchen named best wing spot in Alabama by Buzzfeed

SAW’s Soul Kitchen, the beloved Birmingham BBQ joint and sister restaurant to SAW’s BBQ, is Alabama’s best place for chicken wings according to Buzzfeed. But is anyone surprised? We are definitely not.

Located in the heart of Avondale since May 2012, SAW’s Soul Kitchen features SAW’s popular southern cuisine, plus dishes with a few twists.

The fan favorite? Obviously the chicken wings + white sauce combo. *drool*
