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!

We stopped for dinner last night after reading all if the positive reviews. What a great decision!!! The employees were very helpful. We had the pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw and hot sauce- it was fabulous. Our two delicious sides were more of the vinegar based cole slaw and a hot bean dish that was different and wonderful. We... More

Get OFF the highway and EAT HERE. Always. My husband and I were traveling south from DC with our two adult children and, well, it was dinner time. I Googled BBQ in Raleigh and read the TripAdvisor reviews of a few possibilities, and WINNER just does not give Saucy's enough praise. Do not be put off by its simple appearance... More

very delicious food! The potato salad was so tasty. Everyone really enjoyed it and I went with 7 people in the group. Overall, great spot. They are in the middle of construction but are still open for business. It'll be nicer once they get some seating arranged. Best for take away food.

Very good BBQ. As it was our first time we were coached into the pulled pork sandwiches. And they were great. The vinegar based coleslaw was wonderful as well. Recommended.

Honestly didnt expect much when I stopped here but let me tell ya....WOW! I had the pulled pork sandwich and was blown away by the complexity of the BBQ taste. Not just pulled pork drenched in a bottled sauce but rather a unique test which is unmistakenly home made. Next trip I had to try the ribs and to be... More

After hearing about this place from a co-worker, I had to give it a try. The pulled pork (slamming) as they call it with coleslaw and hot sauce was amazing. The flavors are like no other I have ever tasted. The staff was down to earth and had great knowledge of the different products. I was so impressed I ended... More

WOW. Saucys is the best bbq in the petersburg/richmomd area, and probably the best I have ever eaten. The bbq sandwich with a side of beans is to die for. The 3 bean mixture has a sweet, unique taste.Ribs are definitely fall off the bone. The atmosphere is quaint, nothing fancy, very comfortable. Service is amazing as well as price... More
