We went whilst on holiday in the area and on arrival there was a long queue of people waiting to be seated in the restaurant area but my son, who lives locally, walked straight to the front and turned left instead of waiting to book a table with the maitre d' as you can sit on stools at high tables...

The BBQ is amazing! Beware the portions are huge and filling! All of the sides are amazing, too, so it's difficult to choose what to eat first! I recommend eating the sides that don't reheat well first and saving the left over ribs or meat for an oven reheating later!

We stopped by on a late Saturday afternoon. We only ordered appetizers, but everything was so delicious! We had the nachos, cornbread fritters, chicken wings, tots, and the most delicious Brussel sprouts! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Great location and fun place in Livermore. Solid BBQ for Cali. Great selection of local beers and music on the weekends. Try the Cheesy Grits and Burnt ends. only issue that we have is we can' get cell signals... But love the food and fun and the Salads are huge.

While visiting from St Louis, my sons took me to SAUCED. Excellent beer selection and the food selection was reasonably priced, various unique items of generous portions. I've tasted wings from all over the country, and SAUCED wings are the best ever. Dry rubbed and slow smoked. Best eaten with no sauce. Great atmosphere and staff with great attitude.

Lively fun place on a holiday Monday. The Mexican hamburger was great which we added bacon. The brisket chili was amazing with wonderful flavors. Very rich taste, which a bowl would be too much. I wanna come back when they have music on a Friday night.

I'll have to preface this review by saying I'm from Kansas City, and Sauced offers a decent analog to KC bbq. However, they do so at nearly twice the price. Perhaps that's the Bay Area premium. Their beer selection and happy hour specials are pretty good, and we've typically had decent service. Their porch is nice too on nice Livermore... More

Fun atmosphere with a dozen big screen tv's. Chicken and ribs were delicious as well as beans and cornbread. Good service was good. Meals are not cheap

We really enjoyed our first visit to Sauced. Nice beer selection, some crafted by a local brewer. Everyone enjoyed their meals, especially the Burnt Ends plate...make sure to give it a try. The Sweet Potato side dish is like eating dessert...we will definitely be back!

Came here for dinner on a Saturday night. We have seen that Sauced is always really (and I mean REALLY) busy almost all of the time. But, we decided to join the crowd and see what all the hoopla was about. And, we were entertaining a Texan friend...Sauced keeps getting touted as the absolute best BBQ... First, they do not...
