We really enjoyed our lunch at Sauced. The table inside was loud but we have teenage boys so it suited our group. The service was top notch….we had drinks right away and the kids refills kept coming. Our food came out in a timely manner . The food was good, not great. All the teenage boys loved the meats but I’ve had a lot of BBQ and smoked meats and this was just middle of the road, nothing really great. Good solid BBQ place.

The meat we ordered was extremely fatty. Not a lot of meat portion. We had our first alcoholic beverages and ordered more but by the time we were done eating we never received them. I heard great things before going and was very disappointed.

We had a nice lunch prior to the King’s game. Glad we had reservations! Our server was friendly and offered menu suggestions. The food was quite tasty. The ladies in our party ordered cocktails and enjoyed them. I had the red ale, highly suggested. :-). Our only concern was how chilly it was inside the restaurant. Beyond that, we enjoyed the experience. Thank You!

We had a reservation for 7, we were finally seated at 7:20.Food was not very good. 3 of us ordered pork belly burnt ends and all 3 orders looked different, from over cooked to so far over cooked they were hard.drinks were adequate at best, to much soda water. Ribs were over cooked and hard exterior.pulled pork was dry and the brisket was flavor less. I paid my bill and tip but told them we wouldn’t be back.

Place was dirty. We were sat at a table with food and stuff all over the floor and table.
We moved which was fine the server was busy but working hard. Had 6 food orders three of them came out incorrrect. Second round of drinks was completely wrong. Place was very loud and over priced for quality.

Great place when attending an event at Golden1 Center! We split a 3-meat combo and everything was delicious! Don't miss the baked beans or cheddar-jalapeno sausage!

Overall Sauced is always a go to BBQ spot in Sacramento. The time that we went (6:30pm) was V E R Y busy. You could tell the waiter was a little overwhelmed, longer wait times and any time I wanted add something to my order (like a few of those iced tea lemonades) I felt bad because I knew it was adding extra press upon our waiter.

I eat there pretty regularly. The food is great. The only thing that sucks is all the noise from the Ax Throwing In the cage area. They should rip it out and put in more seating so customers don’t have to wait so long to be seated

Would recommend making reservations since you’ll get seated almost right away. The other parties that got there at the same time as us didn’t have reservations so it was a 30-60 min wait for them. I’m not sure about the lunch hour but dinner was loud, especially inside. The food was amazing and perfectly cooked. It was tender with just the right amount of charring. There’s also four dipping sauces at the table for you to choose from, my favorite was the Kentucky with jalapeño.

Overall experience was ok. Service from our server was ok, didn’t really check on us during the meal & it took a really long time for us to receive our check once we asked for it along with a Togo box. He brought the Togo box after a bit, but no check. He proceeds to go and take an order at a table he was serving for a party of like 8, so you can imagine how long that took. I know it’s hard for businesses in general to hire good employees right now, but it is unfortunate that going out to eat at some places isn’t the same.
