I wouldn't say I am a regular here, but I've been here a few times after a morning shift. I have always dine here alone.
For those who work at a shop on magazine, note that they give the "magazine discount". (I plan on compiling a comprehensive list of places in the city that offer service industry discounts and I'll link it here when this happens.)
It's across the street from where I work, so it's very convenient for me. I should note that every time I dine here I am worn out and ravenous, so this could skew the data I have collected.
The service is always super friendly. It's a counter service restaurant, so you order at the register and they bring it to you. Once, I was walking the street at 4:45 and they were locking the door but let me come in anyway because they could see they were saving my life.
They have an extensive menu. One of my favorite things to eat is bbq ribs. I think my Dad is the standard to live up to as far as that goes. But the ribs at Saucy's are not bad at all. It takes around 10 to 15 minutes from time of order, which is completely fair. I got this with mac and cheese with a side of grilled asparagus. The mac and cheese was super clutch. And it's hard to ruin asparagus and they didn't ruin it.
I have also had the pulled pork on a french roll and the portion was fair for the price. This is probably my favorite thing on the menu so far.
I'm not sure if they make the bbq sauces in house, but the different types are labeled as if they are. They have different types labeled according to what you are eating. If they are made in house, they are all really good. (If they aren't, still taste good but less commendable)
One thing I'll hold against them is that the mac and cheese and other side items are put on the plate in a styrofoam container. It just doesn't look nice and it's wasteful. Less important, but noteworthy is that they also wrap their silverware in paper napkins. I understand linens are more expensive and this isn't a fine dining establishment, but...it just doesn't look as nice.
At the end of the day, I'd go back for the pulled pork sandwich with mac & cheese on the side.
