My wife and I visited Saucy's for the first time and the experience was great! The service was excellent and the food was very delicious. We loved the atmosphere both inside and outside. Since the weather was so nice, we really wanted to eat outside but not enough seating on the patio. Maybe next time. We'd definitely return.

Curious atmosphere and furnishings that does not disturb a good meal based on BBQ. Great ribs and potatoes and sauces. Worth the visit.

I was in Petersburg on business and decided to get take out from Saucys for dinner one night. Saucys is surrounded by what looks to be a bit of a rough neighborhood which as you drive up might set you off, but Saucy's itself is in a really nice building. The space is high ceiled and the decor to me... More

This place is by far amazing. Orders are fast to come out, the beer is great, and the Wolfgangers are running this kitchen in the most creative way possible. The only way this place could be any better is with Sunday brunch. I would pretty much kill for a smoke house brunch. Christina is also the coolest person of all... More

So let me start by saying it's Saucy' SIT DOWN I am reviewing. The take out is the old container that sits on the property and behind that is Saucy's Sit Down. Same great food. Very informal with paper plates and plastic utensils, but absolutely some of the best "Q" ever. Try the strawberry sauce if you are looking for... More

Third trip to this sit down restaurant. It's a great outdoor, as we'll as indoor, experience. Location is close to industry's past: old clothing and textile warehouses which are now apartments. The Barbeque is amazing, as well as the brisket. I always choose North Caroline style 'que but my husband loves the brisket as well as the tacos

Had a great meal here, which we could not finish, I had the half rack of ribs with 2 sides. Also had the cue balls to start. All the food was lovely, this trip we have been struck by how the portion sizes in the USA have shrunk generally, but NOT at Saucy's. Our waiter was great, really friendly and... More
