The bbq here is top notch. The pit master(s) definitely take their job seriously at Sauceman's. I've seen them deep in conversation discussing different techniques with staff. I think the staff is a major reason I come by here, they are always happy and super friendly. The service is quick as well. I have only ever been for lunch and it has always been delicious.
My first visit here. Very impressed. BBQ chicken was awesome, moist, tender and smoky with a spicy rub and tomato based BBQ sauce. The BBQ pork was good even though I like mine a bit smokier. Fair local beer draft selection could be expanded...good iced tea! Comfortable casual atmosphere and clean. Even though it was counter-service, the staff checked on us often to verify all was good. Cardboard carry out boxes (I hate styrofoam). We will return.
The owner made us feel right at home. He didn't just "check to see if we liked our food." He made sure we loved every aspect and accommodated our every need! The taste was addicting as was the environment. Highly recommended. Good food and even better people.
The service was pretty good but the food was very lacking. They did not have many of the items that were displayed Plus the meat that they did have was very Bland. The collard greens were very tough and spicy and the mac and cheese tasted like it was made with mayonnaise. I didn't have a chance to try any of the other things that they had on the menu but judging from the bill I received I'm pretty sure the other meats would taste the same. As I said before the staff was friendly and the environment was also cool but the food was very Bland and lacking and I just couldn't eat it. Not my kind of BBQ.
Was there twice this week. First time had the sampler. There was no civilized way to eat the chicken, it fell off the bone. The pork was so juicy no extra sauce was required. Sausage was solid! No fillers to be found. The sugar biscuits was a nice way to end the meal.
