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...

We went here after being recommended by a friend. Boy do I have good friends. One of us had the stew which he really liked. The rest of us had Burnt Ends The

I was very impressed. Sat at the bar with a friend and bartenders were attentive and knowledgeable about the 120 different whiskeys. Food was reasonably priced, large portions and dam tasty. Worth going if you want BBQ.

The Sauced Pig BBQ is the best and only place to go if you want a very good dinner, a lot of fun and a place when you leave you'll wish you had one at your town. There's lots of T.V.s and the staff is the friendliest people I've ever meet in a restaurant. It's a very family-friendly.

I've tried to eat at Sauced for quite some time and finally scored a table. It's a bit unfair but I've just come back from Austin and some of the top BBQ in the country and Sauced isn't quite in that class. It's good mind you. A step above the typical California BBQ. It's a bit dry and needs the... More

Only the beef is very good. Chicken has no taste. The pull pork is too heavy smoked. French fries is very oily. Overall is a ok place
