On special tonight. 3 for 8.95. Right amount of spice, chicken. Nice soft tacos. If you like dark beer, they currently have Midnight Not My Job on tap. Yummers.

Great bar-b-que in Old Town Petersburg! I got the Saucy Sampler and it was off the chart! Everything was done to perfection and not drowning in sauce, but just the right amount! Cole slaw and potato salad are home made and rock! They had a menu that had plenty from which to choose. Just a block off the main street... More

The sandwich was great. Whenever I'm in the area I try and get a sandwich there. Once you try it you will go back. The service and experience is always great. Good service with a smile and the food is the best. You have to try it for yourself and let me know how you like it. See you there!!... More

We tracked down this gem after reading several other reviews. It was great!! It was a little hard to find, but well worth the effort. I had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and hubby had the pulled pork tacos. The pork was tender, moist with little browned bits and perfectly sauced with just the right amount of heat to... More

Had the beef sandwich, fries with a blonde craft beer less than $15. Prompt friendly knowledgeable service, suggestions. Menu with combos and specials and sides was taking too much effort. Happy with the recommendations. Will definitely keep in mind next time driving past. Beef was quite lean, not dry; Next time I'll ask for FAT, My tastes!

Based on other TA reviews, my wife and I stopped here for dinner while traveling though the area. It was our first visit, though based on our experience, it will definitely not be our last!! We each decided to get their 1/3 of a rack BBQ ribs, along with two sides each. The ribs themselves were very meaty and fall-off-the-bone... More

This is the best BBQ I've ever had. They have BBQ pork and chicken and many sides. They have beer on tap too. The place is very clean and the waitstaff is very friendly

I have BBQ from many different states. Each has its own flair. However, Saucy's is hands down my top choice. Their pulled pork, ribs, and decadent mac and cheese is outstanding. Each time I visit home from California this is my first stop! As a matter of fact I will be in there next week! This is an absolute must... More
