Good BBQ and great music. Everyone was singing and dancing. Great spot to just have fun and let loose.

I really like the food at Sauced...as long as I get it to go. The BBQ at Sauced is very good...maybe not St. Louis or Kansas City good, but good nonetheless. The Burnt Ends (when available ;)) are especially good. The portions are generous. So much so that we now regularly get a 3 item combo with an extra side... More

I like Famous Dave's BBQ and I found one in Tracy, relatively close to Livermore. But, walking around downtown here at home, the smoky odor called my attention. We tried and the ribs are pretty good, only one option for veggie people (Portobello mushroom). Strange that they bill you for the cornbread ($3.75) when the prices are already on the... More

We were a little early for our dinner at the fondue restaurant next door, so stopped in here for a drink on a whim. I walked up to the door and my husband wasn't so sure......the sign out front looks a bit "fancy." Not so, once inside, super relaxed, rustic and BBq'ish. Lots of t'vs, kind of like a sports... More

Dined here once. Too loud, too expensive and the food was only OK, Not the best BBQ I have ever had, that was in Baton Rouge, but not the worst either.

A lot of people rave about this place, and it is busy. The food is OK for Northern California. I grew up in the South and traveled there frequently on my job after I moved away, so I know something about BBQ. This restaurant would struggle in the South because of its food and its prices.

Nice place for brunch even though they were sold out of the home made English muffins making their Eggs Benedict unavailable. A substitute of poached eggs on toast was tasty and filling. Nice atmosphere and great service.

While in Livermore, Ca for a car show we went to Sauced for lunch. There was 9 of us and they got us right in. the service was good. the Ribs and burnt ends are the star of the show. The sauces are good. The cornbread is outstanding. The only thing negative is it quite loud. Worth giving a try... More

Sauced has done a good job of building up a clientele quickly so I know it is popular as a gathering place here in Livermore. The brisket is pretty good, wings good and pulled pork is ok. I find their sides very limited as to selections available. Come on, cornbread or bread should be included with a barbque meal and... More
