My favorite barbeque!

This place literally is my favorite barbeque I've ever eaten!! I love the food here!! They have a pretty unique cole slaw as well that is really good! Just walk up, order, and you're on your way, or you can eat at one of the seats outside. They recently added a restaurant (which I'm ashamed to... read more

I love the Chicken Chili and BBQ both pulled and on the bone. Their 3 bean salad is awesome as well. I wish they were open on Sundays!!! :-)

Attentive staff. Lightning fast service. Clean establishment. Walked in after six pm on Saturday night after reading other reviews. Ordered the que balls and a chicken sandwich slammin. In less than 7 minutes I received my order. The chicken was shredded and tender with a saucy bbq tang. Cooked onions flavored it perfectly. On top was a purple cabbage coleslaw... More

We stumbled upon Saucy's several years ago, traveling from PA to FLA, when it was still just a barbecue place in a shipping crate in an unlikely neighborhood - but we were intrigued by the aroma we picked up a block away! Since then, on several trips south, we plan our travel, both down and back, to coincide with a... More

Started out as a walk up order at a window type of spot. easy to access off of I95 via Washington St. Served on metal baking trays, we started the meal with an appetizer of nachos, which was quite good, but not enough , so we had another before the meal. The nachos had a generous serving of cheddar cheese... More

I have two words for saucy's BBQ nom nom. I had a pulled chicken sandwich and my fiancé had a pulled pork sandwich. Both were delicious and absolutely stuffed with meat. There was no need to put anything else on it, it was already perfect. We also ordered a moon fry....word of advice, just order one when you order your... More

I have never liked vinegar based bbq. Imagine my surprise to find so many places in this Richmond area that have great vinegar-based bbq! Saucy's is definitely one of them. The sandwiches taste great, hot, and fresh. The hours are varied/staggered so call ahead. There is an outside stand and an indoor area. We ate at the outdoor stand as... More

Great food, great prices - Saucys now also has a no-frills, full service sit-down restaurant right next to the original container. Great modern industrial motiff is very functional as you can pull wheeled tables together easily to accomodate larger parties. Perfect for families or after work socials. And of course, if you are in a hurry, you can still order... More
