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 to Petersburg for a taste of Saucy’s Walk-Up Barbecue.
“Why is it special? Well, it’s the best food around, especially here in the South. You can’t beat it.” These are the words of Erich “Erock” Wolfgang, the pit master of Saucy’s Walk-Up Barbecue in Petersburg.
But you may be surprised to see just where the barbecue comes from, Saucy’s is run entirely out of a refurbished shipping crate – and run in a way that is 100% environmentally-friendly. You can sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere on park benches around the "crate kitchen" or you can go in Saucy's new sit-down indoor restaurant, complete with full bar and multiple televisions.
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.
