OMG! This has to be some of the best BBQ ribs and chicken that I have ever eaten! A very simple place, it is all take out as it is not a restaurant where you go inside, sit down, and eat. It is actually like a railroad container or a tractor trailer container! LOL You don't go inside, you just... More

Happened upon this place while headed to the beach. Here's the run down: -Easy to find right off the interstate -Unique building. -the meat was tender, but not very smoky -sauce was nothing to write home about. Perhaps there were other options I didn't know about? -super quick service -overall the food was decent and I feel quite snobby in... More

We had pulled pork sandwiches! MMMMMM - good! Currently, yo walk up to a steel container converted into a small, corner BBQ hut. The service was great; the customers were friendly and hungry as we were. In a few months, Saucy's will move into a building. Go now while the ambiance is pure, local southern style.

Love Saucy's BBQ. The best bean salad I've ever had. Can't wait until they open a walkup in Hopewell.

Saucy's is a great little spot that is somewhat hidden in Petersburg, based on location. DON'T LET THE SHIPPING CONTAINER FOOL YOU! Saucy's BBQ is incredible. The brisket is chunky and crazy flavorful, served on a generic burger bun. But together, it's an achievement akin to landing on the moon. The bean trio and potato salad are also out of... More

Great BBQ! We had ribs and chicken, and both were great. The ribs, especially, were very good. The potato salad and beans were also very tasty, although the beans were not the usual "baked beans" and instead were in some kind of vinegar and oil dressing. Next time, I'd skip the rolls, since they are just grocery store hamburger buns.... More

I personally have not ate the food from Saucy's, but you have to read this review and if you are near Petersburg, you must try their food!! I live in NJ and my Aunt and Uncle live near Petersburg. My uncle passed away, and my sister and I wanted to send food to the house because we knew my aunt... More

The food at this place is great. Even though its in a little shack its convenient and even allows you to call in your order. They are quick and the prices are reasonable.

We found this little gem on trip advisor while traveling home from the beach. It looks unassuming but that metal container is full of BBQ goodness! We had the pulled pork and chicken, both were delicious. The potato salad is unlike any I've had but it was very good. The beans were also very different and tasty. If I lived... More

Great ribs and chicken, even the potato salad was simple, but yummy. The beans, a mix of kidney, navy and green beans in a mildly seasoned vinegar and oil type sauce were surprisingly excellent; take out only, though they do have a couple of outdoor tables; they accept credit cards on a smart phone app. Definitely worth a stop!
