Amazing place! Best BBQ around, period.

This is an amazing place. They have a solid pork BBQ...but really, everything is good. Dine in has great beer selection and what-ever new they are trying. Go there....do it.

I was so surprised when I drove by Saucy's BBQ that used to be wholely in a shipping container. I stopped by to get some of their great BBQ and found that they had opened a real restaurant in a building adjacent to the container. The BBQ was as good as ever--a little pricier than I think it ought to... More

Delicious BBQ sandwich! Some of the best I've ever eaten, however portion was a bit small compared to other local BBQ places. Had macaroni and cheese for my side. Again, delicious but pricey. Was disappointed that they don't have hush puppies or baked beans.

We sought out this bbq joint after reading good reviews. Opted for ribs and chicken. Sauce on the side. Each was slightly different. While the ribs didn't fall off the bone, they were tasty. The chicken was on the dry side.

I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and was skeptical because our last restaurant find was a bust. But this was a GREAT FIND! It's a modern industrial restaurant that is large enough to bring our family of 5 and yet messy enough to eat ribs on wax paper with our hands. The full rack of ribs was prepared with a... More

This place was so good that I have eaten here twice in 3 days. The mashed sweet potatoes are the bomb and are a must order.

I go to the sit-down restaurant/bar. I love the atmosphere and the decor and the staff are friendly and courteous. The food is great at a very reasonably price. This is an excellent place to stop at if you are riding through the Petersburg area for lunch or dinner. Highly recommended.

Had wanted to try this place for quite a while. When we were recently invited I was quite excited but the day we went was rainy, so I thought we wouldn't be able to go since I heard it was a restaurant located in a shipping container with outdoor seating. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that they have... More

Quick trendy and tastes awesome. The walk up is a container used to ship stuff turned order window. Great idea! There is also a place to go inside that has been renovated to perfection. Clean cool atmosphere. Get the beer called "without a job"! It's great. BBQ is outstanding and just a cool place to go.

Saucy's now has a sit-down restaurant at the other side of the parking lot. It is in a converted loft with exposed brick and industrial tables with pipes for legs...minimalist and very trendy. We had the family special with 4 servings of BBQ (brisket & pulled pork), 2 roasted chicken leg quarters, and 1 side (mashed sweet yams). The best... More
