Barbecue is pretty much a major food group in this part of the country. When Saucy’s originally opened in 2010 out of a shipping container, they introduced a refreshing new take on this culinary category. Just ask the pitmaster, Erich Wolfgang. He says that his BBQ style is influenced from all parts of the country thanks to his days traveling with a band that included Saucy’s owner Tom McCormack. While touring, he made notes about his favorite eats. Fast forward a few years and here is all that influence and hard work, in Saucy’s. Whether you want a pork sandwich and some fries, or ribs with all the sides, you are sure to love your meal in either location.Vegans are in luck too, as they serve delicious Tofu Tacos with a spicy mango sauce and their signature coleslaw. There’s no mayo in the coleslaw here, it’s just flavored with pineapple, jalapeno pepper and cilantro which is a really interesting take on this staple BBQ side. Be sure to order other sides too such as the seasoned fries, beans or mac and cheese. There is also a bar at each location that serve a variety of craft beers and a small selection of wine. In warmer months, you can enjoy your meal on the patio. Saucy’s also offers catering.

Voted as one of the top twenty places in the South for a pork barbecue sandwich by Southern Living magazine, people are coming all over for a taste of Saucy’s Barbecue.

The restaurant serves pork, beef, chicken, and ribs, but it owes its name to its savory, perfectly-blended barbecue sauce. Most Saucy’s customers leave with a pint or two of this delicious concoction to take home with them, so they can experience the succulent taste of Saucy’s long after their visit has ended.
