“The Tray Delivered The Three Qs: quantity, quality, que”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

I went here on the recommendation of locals and was impressed. I always get some barbecue when in Charlotte, and this place is at the top. It is no frills ordering at the counter and then they'll bring it out to you. Flat screen TVs with ESPN and block walls with the signatures of regulars adorn the dining room walls. I had the "Tray" with rough chopped pork, hush puppies, and white slaw. At first I was disappointed it didn't come with fries, then I saw how much meat you get! Tons of pork, 2 hush puppies, and a solid helping of slaw. The 3 sauces they had at the table were all tasty. I was stuffed. When I was walking out, some cops on break were walking in. If cops eat there, it's probably a good bet.

“Hip local joint with great food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Sure wish this place was in my hometown! Yummy southern food. North Carolina has its own distinctive kind of BBQ and this place excels at it. You won't find drippy sugary sauces here. Just smoked meats and all the accompanying sides like okra, po boys, and greens. I would highly recommend. We learned that not everyone in Charlotte knows this place... If you take a taxi from downtown, give them the street address.

“Yummy food”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We were on our way north on 77, and really didn't want to eat " fast food," so we fortunately found Sauceman's. it is very easy to get to off of 77. This is great barbecue, and the people that work there couldn't be nicer. Don't miss the sugar biscuits. They are delicious.

“Amazing BBQ ,must go!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Service is a little slow, but the food is amazing and worth the slight delay. The owner is really nice and his special sauces are to die for.

“Great BBQ low key setting”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We were looking forward to trying Sauceman's as the reputation is so good. The BBQ was delicious and the sauces were very good. The sides were well crafted especially the fried pickles and greens. Great hush puppies too. I've had equal if not slightly better but would definitely recommend.
