we missed the rush

kid friendly. don't worry they sell beer

someone tell me what is up with the hippie / pizza connection?

While New York Pizza was tasty I think I will be reserving it for take out only. Since I do not have have kids the vibe doesn't quite suit me. If you do have kids, a large party or just want to escape the scene absolutely go!

Saw's BBQ

open table, grab it while it's hot

no loyalty just football and bbq

small kitchen, big plates. i saw some ribs coming out....holy cow!

lunch is jamming, expect to wait in line a few minutes

legend has it that this sauce was the inspiration for the operation

condiments are great but my meal didn't require any extra attention

smoked chicken sandwich with white bbq sauce. i'm in love!!

cole slaw and deviled eggs

saw's original pulled pork sandwich

with potato salad

the good ice. is there a better term than pellet ice?

sour cream pound cake from a distance

I've heard so many amazing things about Saw's and it definitely lived up to it's reputation. The service is fast and friendly and most importantly the food is great! In addition to the sandwiches and plates they also serve up gigantasaurus stuffed taters and even a carolina dog with chili and slaw. I'll be back (insert governator voice)!

open 7 days a week, nice!

patio dining with a view of Green Valley

bourbon smash: fresh raspberries, maker's mark, and lime. It was way past noon.....

this isn't gonna work as a sandwich is it?

fried green tomato sandwich with bacon of course

grilled tilapia sandwich with crispy fries and rings

Between the bourbon smash and the mater sandwich I am officially won over by Mudtown. The dining room is small so it's best to go during off peak hours.
I'll be back!
