This was our first time axe throwing and eating at sauced. We had low expectations in general, because service these days has been so poor, every where you go… but WOW, every person, from bar tender to our server, completely surprised us. If you want to enjoy yourself and eat a lot of great food, go to sauced and have no limits.

We were seated right away. It was really loud inside so we elected to sit outside on the patio. The heat lamp provided additional warm for us. We ordered a 2 meat combo (brisket, BBQ pork burnt ends) with jalapeno slaw and mac n cheese sides. For $30 the portion size was a little underwhelming but with post-Covid-19 pricing, I guess that isn't surprising. The brisket was flavorful and moist. The rib tips were tasty as well. We informed the server that we were celebrating a birthday and she brought out a complementary dessert comprised of fried oreo cookies drizzled with chocolate syrup and a scoop of ice cream.

Enjoyed a Carnivore lunch with the 3 meat plate. Had some sliced brisket, ribs and pork belly burnt ends....yum yum. The waffle fries are amazing as are the jalapeno cheese grits. Had a great time with great friends.

Excellent vibe, awesome food, service was great with Khy, the bar was just backed up and often took a bit to get our beers and cocktails. Overall it was a great time and we can't wait to go back! Tons of TVs to watch sports too!!

I’ve been here twice now, once on a work luncheon, once on a night after a long day. The food here is excellent, brisket melts in your mouths, their sauces are all unique and delicious. Their Buffalo chicken Mac might be one of my favorite things I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The drinks are great and they have daily deals on whiskey/bourbon & beers on tap.

On top of all that you have axe throwing lanes as well, it’s honestly a great way to cap off a date or work up an appetite. They’re coaches are quick and efficient when giving the initial break down and are great at helping give pointers if you’re struggling.

This place is really cool, i’m glad they made their way to Southern California, i’ll be recommending this place anytime someone asks for a good BBQ spot.

The ax throwing was a constant banging in the background. It was a bit distracting even while in the furthest part of the restaurant from the ax cages. I would like to try ax throwing sometime though.

Place was very loud, noisy, chaotic. That might be someone’s vibe but not ours. Food was pretty good, our waiter was excellent. But it was so loud, we had a hard time chatting. Even the waiter had to yell to get our order. We probably won’t be back. This place may appeal to someone else but not us.

What we liked: The food was delicious, the servers were friendly, and our food came very quickly.

What we didn’t like: We were seated on bar stools at a high table on the patio. Our table was too close to the table behind us, so the whole time people were bumping into my back as they tried to squeeze between the tables.

Food tasted ok but most of it was dry. Decent beer selection but the vibe was lacking. Indoors felt like a cafeteria and the outdoor area needs some loving. Stale... I also had gas for days after eating here...

Cool night on way to concert. Asked fir heater outside and they immediately brought one over. Apps were good, hush puppies and Brussels sprouts. I had brisket burnt ends which were dry, but the jalapeño slaw and waffle flies were great. Didn’t have time fir axe throwing and it seemed expensive. All in all, good night, but still looking fir the best BBQ!

We enjoyed dinner before a concert at the Honda Center and enjoyed it very much. A 3 meat combo is plenty of food for two people. The Mac & cheese was so good we ordered a second side. While a bit on the pricey side the food is very good. The noise level is very high.

Food was OK but came out cold and could have been presented in a better way. The location is close to the Honda Center and good for a pre-event meal. The axe throwing looked like fun and we may try this if we do return in the future.

I picked Sauced because i recently read reviews that the food was great. It was packed when we arrived and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. It was a cold day so we ordered the chili and cornbread and the dry rubbed wings. The chili was extremely spicy and we both had a hard time eating it. Mind you we both like medium spicy food but this surpassed that. Thank goodness for the cornbread. The wigs were big and meaty but had no smoke flavoring at all, nothing. I could taste the dry rub but this is a BBQ restaurant so they should have been smirked like they said. Our server was extremely busy with several tables but you would never know because he was on it. Our food came out in record time and that was impressive. I really wanted to be able to love this place but unfortunately I won’t be back.
