Saucy Is All About Southern Comfort


Southern food: comforting, homey, and filling. It’s all on the menu at Saucy, the almost month-old fast-casual spot in the Ballpark neighborhood.

The family-run eatery has a broad menu of traditional southern eats—house-smoked ribs, brisket, beans, fried okra—along with Mexican bites, burgers, and wings. You might find yourself waiting a bit for meat dishes, but the fall-off-the-bone ribs are worth it.


We tried the Texas sliced brisket, a generous basket of smoked beef, three perfectly crispy cornbread balls, and a choice of two sides. Don’t miss the mac and cheese side—a mouthwatering combo of creamy cheese and a slightly crunchy top layer.

Heads up: Saucy will start offering happy-hour specials (including alcohol and food bargains) this weekend.
