Pretty Good Place

Growing little place. Started as a little CONEX shipping container selling BBQ and has grown. Good food and cool look now.

Reviewed the walk-up over a year ago and have been to the restaurant since then and believe it deserves a review. 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.

We were traveling through town on a Saturday at lunch time. At lunch time, you grab your food at the original Walk-Up location and if you want a spot to sit down (other than the two four-seat picnic tables right in front of the Walk-Up), you can go sit at the tables inside Saucy's Sit-Down, where they offer full service...

No business is perfect, but what you look for is how well they respond to a mistake. When owner Tom found out that our ribs were tough and undercooked during a recent visit, he wanted to do everything possible to make it right. His attention to detail and perfection is truly commendable. Apparently, the expansion from the walk-up to a... More

We had been to the walk-up location several times, and just went for the first time to "Saucy's Sit-Down," which recently opened adjacent to the walk-up. It offers table service after 5 p.m., and before that you can buy food at the walk-up location and bring it inside if you want to sit down. In warmer weather there will be... More
