Slammin pulled pork on the double

Saucys is great I am local in Petersburg and it never disappoints I have tried almost everything on the menu and can't find anything I don't love. The new sit down restaurant just opened for lunch and is a great mid day break from work.

Too much sauce for me it smothers the taste of the meat. I had a pork sandwich and it was very wet and too sweet. I also had 1/4 rack of ribs and we're too tough for me. They need to cut down on the sauce and upgrade th ed meat. All in all had good taste.

Opening a food place in a shipping container in an area that does not have a lot of foot traffic was risky. It has paid off in spades. They now have a new facility next door that you can sit down inside and eat. Nobody is going to top my favorite NC bbq (which is IN NC), but the bbq... More

Went to the walk up one night to get a sandwich and noticed that there was a dang building in the parking lot LOL! Went in and was wowed by how neat the place is. Owner was there and... More

GREAT way to end our very disappointing experience at the Smokin' Bbq Fest. My husband & I shared the "container" which was 1/3 ribs, 1 chicken leg quarter, pulled pork, 2 buns & 2 sides, we got beans & potato salad. We were NOT disappointed at all. I am VERY picky about Bbq sauce, I prefer dry rub, but the... More

This is the most hyped place in Petersburg. Even with our high expectations, this place was better that we expected! One of the best barbecue joints ever! We went to the Sit Down restaurant.

Went here while visiting relatives in the area. I kept hearing how good they were and I was excited to try their food. I ordered 1/4 rack of ribs, coleslaw and their signature bean salad. The ribs were tough, chewy and fatty. The coleslaw was so coarsely chopped that I had a hard time getting it in my mouth. It... More

I've experienced Saucy's Walk-Up several times before. I've had the chicken, ribs, and brisket. The food is so good it's hard to get it home without reaching in the bag for a pick. Friday night we had a bunch of family in for the holiday. They sat 20 of us! We had a great meal with great service. The beer... More

Came up from wilmington nc to Vist family and vacation with my kids all I heard about was this place from my mom so worth it. Best BBQ I've had in a long time. I'll be back. May even road trip back up just for more. Let me know when you can ship out of state.
