A Great Treat

Saucy's Sit Down is a welcome delight while traveling. Jessica welcomed us graciously and took terrific care of us. We each had 1/2 chicken that was plump and juicy and quite good. We liked that the coke slaw had no mayonnaise, as we are health-conscious. My husband enjoyed the mashed sweet... read more

The food is enough to bring you in and keep you coming back, but the waitress was also great, it's in a really neat building next to their original trailer(that is still open), and they have beer and wine, but still maintain a family atmosphere! Just go, you'll love it!

Great ribs. Chicken chili is a lesser known gem. The walk up was fine; the sit down expansion is great. Outstanding service.

We arrived and were immediately greeted by several the staff, the restaurant was impeccably clean and had a lively and pleasant atmosphere. We were able to seat ourselves, within seconds our server arrived to take our drink orders and provide assistance with their menu. Saucys had several Virginia craft beers on tap which was quite nice. After our drinks arrived... More

As a southern gal I've eaten my share of BBQ in my life, and Saucy's is hands-down the best I've ever eaten!! First of all, the pork is "pulled", not minced beyond recognition. Secondly, the coleslaw is chunky (also not mushed), and has a hint of cilantro which brings a freshness to the palette. I have been a fan of... More

Ok- I have a personal preference for smoked ribs with dry rubs. They do offer it with sauce on the side- which is good. Ordered a full rack of baby back with sauce on the side. Good seasoning on the crust and good color on the outer layer. But, they taste like they had been boiled first.

I've been going to Saucy's now for months. It's world class barbecue here in historic Petersburg. I've greatly enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich, sweet bean trio, sweet potatoes, and of course the amazing potato salad. Everything is home made and out-of-this-world good. There is sit down service inside a beautifully renovated air conditioned space near their original curbside trailer. What's... More

Got the "container" and sooooo happy! Had 1/3 rack of ribs, quarter chicken leg, BBQ for 2 sandwiches and 2 sides for $23.50. It was delicious and a great price. Will BE BACK
