Met a friend for lunch much and our experience was so enjoyable. We came for the brisket burnt tips but they were out. Drinks wonderful, a bit pricey but certainly an enjoyable experience and our service was exceptional💜

Food was good, especially the sides, but the brisket wasn't smoked as long as I prefer. They also have an extensive selection of beer and cocktails.

Food was great but their mixed drinks were way too syrupy. Stick with beer or straight whiskey.

Waitress was great, noise level was good we sat out on the patio. It was a bit cold out, but I overheard heaters helped a little bit. My sliders were a little bit dry, usually to meet really juicy in Muir Spirit late Saturday night my slider for a little bit dry. Otherwise it was great we will be back!

Food was j6st ok...very dry. Guess that's why you need all the sauces! Very crowded...with no masks, didn't like how tables are so close. Brought out wrong order, but quickly rectified.

This was our second visit and it wasn't as great as our first time. The service was okay but we felt rushed. My child wanted an extra side, a piece of cornbread, (which we were fine paying more for). The server suggested a small piece and ended up ordering us 4 large pieces of cornbread which we didn't need or want. Our drinks weren't refilled (ice tea & water) and we had planned on ordering dessert but didn't get a chance. The server put our bill down so quick and then came back to process the payment while we were still eating and all the other empty plates were on our table. We sat at a table on the main walkway and by the door so it was super cold and super loud. We noticed the manger or employee ask the table next to us (large party) to move tables advising that they had another large party coming in. We were surprised as the table was already gathering their things, had paid and had all their food boxed. It just seemed like a tad unprofessional. The food overall was good and we would come back but may do take-out instead.

This was our first stop at WC Sauced. We were disappointed in the ambience, look and overall atmosphere. The food was outstanding and service was great, but the cafeteria style open room and elevated ceilings made dinner leas enjoyable than we had hoped.

Not that I care that much, but they weren’t checking vaccination cards when we arrived. The food was pretty good but the mixed drinks were over priced. And the place was pretty loud.

They ran out of chicken at 7 pm. That is what I went there for. They didn’t tell us until after we had drinks and appetizers. We left.

Burnt End Brisket Nachos and the cross cut French fries, amazing!
Loved the heifer burger w/fried onion strings - delicious! And the cocktails were perfection.
Five Stars to the staff, from the front desk, to the throwing coaches and the three servers we had were courteous, attentive, timely with service and refills. I’m old school and customer service is important to me, that is what will bring me back.

First have to say Sauced is my favorite BBQ restaurant. I have been to Walnut Creek and Livermore.

It started off bad. Out of all dark beers.

We brought a bottle of wine. Waiter did know how open bottle. Had to wait for the Bartender.

I was really looking forward to the burnt ends. There not making them. What!

My pork ribs were dry.

Wish I ate at another restaurant. Maybe Livermore would have been better

I'm from the south and have been disappointed by so called California BBQ until now. The atmosphere was fun and loud, the staff was fast and super nice, the drinks were delicious and the food was outta this world! We can't wait to come back and try everything on the menu!

I loved Sauce! The food was very well prepared, the fried rib appetizer was the best ribs I have ever tasted and I have had a lot of ribs in my time here on earth. They were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The sauce on them was not over powering at all. Just Perfect!!

The food was outstanding. I do not know of a lot of great BBQ places in the Bay Area, but this did not disappoint. I had the double meat plate with the brisket and ribs, with the Buffalo Mac and sweet potato casserole as my sides. I’m looking forward to returning to try the rest of the menu.
