What a place...creative way of ordering and food came out quick and hot...Love the decor and was hopping during lunch..waited a couple of minutes to receive order sheets...What would make it 5 stars would be to have sweet tea and some more meat on the sandwich... never got a refill on drink either.

Went to Saucy's, my husband and I had a sandwich apiece, a large order of fries and 2 soad's, the bill was almost 25.00. Everything is ala cart and the food wasn't great.

I know Virginia barbecue. The minced pork and beef brisket are among my top three favorite sandwiches. Ever. Plus, I just like the looks of the place...an old storage container converted into a corner walk-up. Smokers out back. A couple of picnic tables with umbrellas. If you want to sit inside, the newer Saucy's in just yards away.

Very casual dining and the place for great BBQ. Family run business with owners still doing the cooking. The hicken and pork was phenomenal. The ribs were extremely meaty with only a little fat. Just enough sauce, and probably the best ribs, bar none, other than mine 😁. A rack of ribs were more than enough for 4 of us.... More

Not a fan of Virginia style BBQ. Ordered beans assuming that they were baked beans but it was more like bean soup which in my opinion was better than the BBQ!

The food is the best thing there. Our wait person was attentive and polite but the hostesses were clueless. Upon entering we waited for awhile before anyone acknowledged our entrance. That was odd but ok. There were no tables available and the hostess mentioned we were the next to be seated. Literally there was no where to wait. You just... More

These are one of the enjoyable places in the area. The food is great compared to the other BBQ joints in the area. The setup is clean and fresh setup. It's also next to an awesome bakery and coffee shop.

Stopped in for lunch while traveling on I-95. Everything was amazing. Brisket was flavorful with a great rub and the cole slaw was tasty with a light vinegar dressing and a hint of jalapeño. My wife had the chicken chili which looked great. The restaurant has a cool vibe with cement tables and modern artwork. Celiac friendly!
