    The service was ok. Took a while to get our drinks. The Moscow Mule was in the wrong glass... Not the end of the world, but a sign. The food was luke warm. Brisket tasted good. The ribs were overcooked and tough. The wings were also overcooked. The Mac N Cheese was a big blob in the bowl, but it did taste good.

    Little pricy and the barbecue amount is a bit sparse for that price, but overall it was pretty outstanding. Staff was kind and very efficient. Barely any waiting before they offered you another refill or they brought you your food. Everything was delicious as well. Could not go wrong with what you ordered.

    It was 85 outside. The inside dining area is extremely hot, loud and crowded. The food is ok. I got the burnt ends banh mi and it was all grizzle. No real meat. The ribs, brisket and sides were good. Nothing spectacular but they were good. Service was ok.

    Drink server spilled soda and water all over us. Shoes and pants sticky all day and all what was offered was a free appetizer. No towels no extra napkins until we asked for. Really bad service. No one whipped down the tables or anything.

    Fair warning for people… Good food but Horrible service. We came here for a late lunch expecting to have the same great food as the first time we came. Except it was not that. The service we received was awful, the waiter didn’t acknowledge us at all during our meal. I had to wave him down to get a refill, our bill, and Togo boxes. We would have expected that kind of service if the place was packed but it was not. Sucks to say I probably won’t be back anytime soon.

    The restaurant had absolutely zero AC working. I asked the staff about this, and they said it was on. The entire restaurant was using their menu as a fan, it was also a day that was 96° outside. This is something that many people have reviewed and complained about.

    We visited about 130p.m. on a Friday. There were only a few other tables with people . We were greeted and sat right away . The waitress was nice enough , however she and the other servers seemed to be MIA most of the time . It was difficult to ask for something if needed , even to another tables server. No one was around.

    My friends and I were going to a concert at Golden 1 Center nearby and Sauced was one of the only places that allowed us to make a reservation which was really nice! It was pretty crowded and loud in there and it got a little warm so we asked our server to open the windows that were near us (roll up windows). He did do that and it was better. The food was really good and the service was great! The bar drinks were also really good! Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. It was a little pricey, but there are definitely pricier places around there and it is a busy downtown area right next to the Golden 1 Center so with all of that considered it wasn't bad at all. The atmosphere is fun, they have in-house axe throwing which was cool and the names of the food and drink follow a fun theme. I would definitely go again!

    We appreciated Sauced taking us early before our reservation time. We enjoyed our outdoor table with people-watching by the Golden 1 Center on a warm night. Service was attentive and efficient. The watermelon margarita was photogenic and tasty, too. We all enjoyed our dinners - my husband's chicken was ginormous, plus there were ribs, too. He said the ribs were not fatty. Plenty to take home. The pulled pork on a sandwich or plate was delicious, with choices of sauces on the table. The mac 'n cheese was good quality. We all enjoyed our sides. Thank you, Sauced! Hope to try other locations closer to home.

    The experience was just okay, after we received our food our server forgot to come back till we were done with our meals. Our drinks were empty, no water refills, by the time she came back we were done. So we basically just needed the bill at that point. It's a fun place to eat, but service is just so-so.

    Only problem I had was it was 105 outside with no wind. Instead of turning on the air conditioning to make it more comfortable, they opened all the windows and made it almost too hot inside to eat.

    While our server, Liliana G was fabulous and our food was delicious, the atmosphere was a little less desirable. We were sitting next to the Ax Throwing Cage and let's just say that the pounding of the axes hitting the side of the wooden cage made for a not so quiet dining experience.

    The food was amazing!! The service wasn’t great. Our waitress was very pleasant but we had to ask for her when we needed refills and such because she never checked on us. We were sat right next to the axe throwing which was cool to watch but quite noisy. I would recommend and I would definitely go back just hoping for a different waitress next time.

    The restaurant offers 4 different sauces at the tables, which is really nice so you can choose what sauce you want on your meat, sides, etc. I ordered the combo plate with Ribs and Pork Belly Burnt Ends. They were all cooked to perfection, but they put sauces on them already. The sauce on the ribs was OK, but the sauce on the ends was too spicy for me and I could not finish them. I would much rather have the perfectly done meat delivered to the table and then let me choose what sauce to add since the choices are there at the table already.
