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

I was going here when they had just the little truck stand thing in the back of the restaurant and not the full building they are now. I love their pork. My wife and I will go there for take-out and order the ribs and order extra sauce.

My wife and I visited Saucy's for the first time and the experience was great! The service was excellent and the food was very delicious. We loved the atmosphere both inside and outside. Since the weather was so nice, we really wanted to eat outside but not enough seating on the patio. Maybe next time. We'd definitely return.

I was in Petersburg on business and decided to get take out from Saucys for dinner one night. Saucys is surrounded by what looks to be a bit of a rough neighborhood which as you drive up might set you off, but Saucy's itself is in a really nice building. The space is high ceiled and the decor to me... More
