The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. When I got back home I Google them and to my delight I ordered their BBQ sauce.

We visited Saucy's on three separate occasions. The first time was because we had heard how good the food tasted. Each time we were very disappointed in the food, the cost, and the wait time. We don't plan to go back.

Cue Balls = amazing! The sauce that is served with the cue balls is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy! The boyfriend and I split a whole chicken with sides of mac and cheese and beans. Definitely go for the mac and cheese! We even took home what we couldn't finish- great place and incredible waitstaff!

We visited Saucy's for dinner. I liked the initial atmosphere. The place was packed and the food took a while to be served. I ordered the 3 street tacos with the mashed sweet potatoes. The tacos were very, very spicy. I wish the server had advised me of that, I would have ordered something different. The sweet potatoes were very... More

I was in the area and wanted something good to eat and Saucy's #1 rating didn't let me down. Great food and environment in a nice location. They had several local and import beers available that could please anyone. Don't second guess it and try it out!

We were looking for lunch traveling between Charlotte and Baltimore, What a find! Right off the road and so good. My husband got the ribs which were meaty and tender. I got the beef soft tacos which had excellent flavor. The best were the beans...not baked beans but a combination of green beans, kidney, etc with great flavor. Not a... More

Ten (10) of us for a birthday recently. Food was good but service extremely poor. Same problem when we visited there for a similar occasion 2 years ago. Very slow taking your orders, and even extremely slow - when taking your money - ? Go figure. Place was not very busy either time. There's no excuse for this.

Very pleasant surprise. Meat and potatoes BBQ joint that was really quite good and well looked after. Clean public area and restrooms. My wife and I each had 1/2 chicken with fries and slaw...servings were more than ample. Would definitely return.
