The walk-up has been around for a few years, but the restaurant is fairly new but with the same great food and flavor. Large portions, great food and really nice staff. It also has a great area outside for those more seasonable days. The industrial decor inside looks great, but a bit challenging for me to hear because of acoustics.

I have heard so many people raving about Saucy's. I was really let down by the food. I got a barbeque chicken sandwich with cole slaw on top and potato salad. The potato salad was good but the sandwich fell apart, bread was stale, PG Barbeque has better chicken barbeque. My husband did not like the beef brisket soft tacos... More

I love BBQ, and a group of us visited Saucy's in January and WOW was it delicious. We had a variety of food on our order, and everyone in our party loved their meals. The service was excellent, and we were even able to get a tour of the smoker - a very impressive beast in and of itself!! Fantastic... More

Saucy's barbecue is so delicious! Their portions are hearty and filling. I loved that the pork was meaty and not over sauced but the smoke flavor permeated the meat. Very yummy! They also make a great slightly sweet iced tea that was very good...a nice change from the typical Southern tea that is overly sweet! My friend ordered the sweet... More

My family enjoyed our lunch at Saucy's on our trip to visit the Petersburg battlefield. The ribs were excellent and generous in portions. The beer selection was also top notch and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Cannot wait to go back!

The location is out of the way unless you know where to look or perhaps if you are a local. My family met for lunch halfway from our homes in opposite directions. The reviews were great. I'd had less than desirable bbq the night before so I was looking forward to the meal. There were four of us with a... More

I am a recent transplant to Petersburg. My partner and I are always looking for excellent BBQ and were told you HAVE to try Saucy's. Our first visit was at the sit-down restaurant. Service was slow, but we have learned to accept that here in the Virginia area. We asked for a list of sauces and were told that they... More
