We had a great time at Saucy's to celebrate a job promotion and welcome family coming into town to visit. Friends we were with had been previously but this was our first time. Our waitress was very friendly and did all she could to make our visit an enjoyable one. She knew the menu perfectly and what combinations worked best.... More

The design is very clever and appealing; clean, neat, interesting and fun. The food is quality and affordable. I enjoy the personalization of traditional sides. The beans are really tasty and the barbecue chicken is delish!

Broke up our 7 hour drive with Trip Advisors help once again. Would never have found this hidden BBQ gem on our own. Limited menu but great food. BBQ. Chicken was moist, tender and flavorful. Rack of ribs were meaty and tender. Nice smoky flavoring and tasty BBQ sauce. Three bean salad was a surprise, served hot, delicious. Mac and... More

We were visting out kids that live in Virginia, we are from Utah. They took us there to eat and it was so incredible. I highly recommend it. The food is so good--especially enjoyed the slaw and mac and cheese--and of course the ribs and chicken. The price is very resonable and the service is great. I loved it!! I... More

We ate in the restaurant not the walk up. I loved the industrial warehouse feel of the restaurant. We have been wanting to try this restaurant every time we come home for a visit and finally made it. I expected the BBQ to be out of this world after all the hype and good reviews I read but unfortunately I... More

Saucys is a solid choice for anyone wanted to indulge in some good BBQ in the Petersburg area. The food is tasty, the portion sizes are appropriate, but perhaps the best part of the restaurant is the amount on craft beers available. They support the local Devils Backbone brewery which has some very good beers. On top of that they... More

bring your appetite. While the food may be a little pricey, it's of high quality and thus worth it. Their sliders are delicious, good luck finishing the ribs!
