I've heard about Saucy's for years, but never had the chance to try it. We were actually heading out to another restaurant last weekend and we noticed that Saucy's sit-down restaurant was open, and we decided to give it a try. Anyway, the BBQ was was great, literally some of the best ribs I've ever eaten. They also had a... More

Located behind this small box walk-up for take out orders they have NOW opened a full restaurant. We (family) went there 1-24-15 for my son's birthday - he knew about it. There were 9 of us. Restaurant is very nice and wide open, and outside and inside is retro décor and looks great! The bathrooms were extremely nice, and the... More

Hi Joey! I remember your party from Saturday night. We've been "quick-serve" at the walk-up window for so long that the learning curve of transitioning inside has been longer than we'd imagined. It'll take us a bit to get our pro legs under us. One of our best staff called in sick late Saturday and that left us all scrambling... More

My office orders from Saucy's about twice a month and we are always EXTREMELY SATISFIED! The pulled beef BBQ sandwich is tender, saucy, and flavorful. The ribs are always perfectly cooked and the meat falls off the bone. I order 5 lbs of potato salad every time I go there because everyone loves it. The staff is very accommodating and... More

Best BBQ in the area competing with local chain and restaurant style establishments. Affordable and delicious. Location can be missed if not paying attention. Look for the orangish-yellow container on the corner.

Does Saucy's Walkup BBQ serve GREAT barbecue? Nope. But is it tasty? Absolutely. Saucy’s is located at the corner of a parking lot in an industrial section of Petersburg, VA. I had the pulled pork sandwich (with slaw on top) while my wife ordered the chicken quarter. We both had a side of potato salad. The BBQ sauce was sweet... More

We looked for this place based on previous reviews. It is a hard place to find. Since it was raining and the outdoor tables were wet, we ended up eating in the car. Food was very good- we had meaty ribs and chicken quarters. The coleslaw was good-cilantro flavored. Service is very good.

This place gives you large portions of fresh food. The coleslaw is homemade and the baked beans are a combo of 3 types. Definitely worth it.

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
