Sauced BBQ & Spirits

Sauced BBQ & Spirits is located in downtown Livermore, CA and we serve up the best BBQ in the area. Our "Saucy" ribs, smoked wings and deep fried Oreos are a special treat that no other BBQ joint can compete with. We smoke all of our meat with apple and hickory wood.


A perfect complement to our BBQ is our large selection of whiskies including seven different options on tap and a hundred total whiskeys ranging from Tennessee, Bourbon, Rye, Corn, Canadian, Irish and Scotch. Sauced BBQ & Spirits can mix you up the perfect Southern cocktail (try the Watermelon Moonshine or the Bacon Old Fashioned) and offers a large selection of beer and wine.

"We went with our son & his girlfriend. Its a place they really enjoy. It was pretty noisy & crowded for a weeknight. Reasonably priced menu. Split decision on the burnt ends, 1 thought the burnt ends were ok; the other two who had it loved it.
Wait staff were prompt, friendly & personable.

"Cold feeling to the place (although extremely crowded). Concrete floors, metal chairs, etc... No booth seating. No tipping policy, automatic 20% added to ticket ($257 for 7 meals, 5 drinks). Food was meh, service was meh. I didn't love it."

"We always enjoy our means at Sauced BBQ & Spirits. The service was excellent. The food was wonderful and we love their sauce choices for the meat dishes. If you like a quiet place this is not the place for you. However, because it is quite noisy it is perfect to bring young ones who sometimes like to yell. Still not so loud you can't hear people you are with."

"Have been there a few times before. Good food. Very noisy though. They now add mandatory 20% gratuity to your bill. I feel that's excessive for that type of restaurant. They may get you once with that, but why go back. We were a party of 6 and probably none of us will go back. Too bad. Food is good! Service OK, but for 20% we expected much more. Guess they don't have to try real hard since tip is guaranteed."

"I really like this concept. The service is good; the have a nice process. The food is always good; I find myself going back for favorites(Burnt ends) but also find new tempting menu items as well (Try the grits). All around good place to go for lunch or dinner. Though they are a chain they have managed through chain mediocrity."

"I brought two friends who'd never been. I was talking it up and a lovely woman behind us said,"You have to have the sweet potato casserole!" Well, low and behold, she was the mom/aunt of the two owners. We met the 6 grand kids and their moms. Keep mom/aunt around, fellas. She's a fabulous ambassador!
My friends were so impressed with the food and service (and the entertaining grand kids!). I can assure you, I'll have no trouble getting them back there again. Thanks for the birthday oreos!"

"The food was good as well as the service. The cost was a little steep, as my meal for 4 people was over $120. Their new policy of automatically adding 20% "service charge" to their bill is a dumb idea, and I probably won't be back because of it. The food was not out of this world enough to entice me to go back knowing that I don't have an option regarding the "service charge"."

"Ok, we did this because we had gift cards that we received for Christmas. In previous visit, we where happy with food and service...not keen on wait time for table nor on value (seemed over-priced for ribs in my book). The gift cards, this time around, made the pricing bearable...the required 20% service charge made the pricing unbearable (again). Sauced has eliminated tipping and are now adding a 20% service charge on everything (NO, NO, NO...slap a small service charge that I know will go to the serve staff and allow me to tip more if I deem it appropriate...don't force me to reward service if it is not earned). Wait time for table was eliminated using OpenTable (good thing we planned two days in advance); food was just okay. Kids meal was $12.99...yikes! Better off getting a regular adult meal (if you don't need the soda) for a buck or two more. For our family of four, we should have just gotten two combo meat plates (two meats or three meats with two sides each) and gone family style (definitely the way to go). Nothing to rave about, nothing to rant about... I won't say 'No Recommendation' because it's still a fun place to go...I'd go again if I had gift cards (but I'd probably still complain about the forced 20% service charge!"

"We arrived and saw quite a crowd but our table was waiting just as we had asked. We were seated on the patio at a nice long table, service was excellent, food terrific. It's always a difficult decision here determining what to order there are so many great choices. We had the rack of ribs with yellow squash casserole, baked beans and apple slaw. The meal was enjoyed by all!"

"Mediocrity at it's finest. Average food quality, average service, small portions and pricing that does not match the quality. I especially took exception to the 20% Service Charge! This Socialist Tipping method was a turn off, especially since there was nothing that deserved a 20% Service Charge. By the way, you pay sales tax on the Service Charge since it is not considered Gratuity. Barbecue should be a rather inexpensive meal, especially this Barbecue."

"Fun, loud with great Q. $2 tacos for happy hour can't be beat. They offer 4 different sauces, all of which are unique. Huge bar but I highly suggest a reservation especially on the weekends."

"The food was extremely good. Family had brisket and ribs. The barbecue sauces were very good, particularly the Hot Tin Roof. Hot but with a great flavor.
Highly recommend.

"First time coming here, and almost certainly the last.
The food was decent, which is the only reason this review is two stars instead of one. We particularly enjoyed the ribs, chicken wings and dry rub fries; the pulled pork was just okay. The "burnt ends" (brisket cubes) that this place is supposedly known for were sold out... at 6:30pm.
What makes this a two star review is the abysmally slow service. It took nearly an hour for our entree to come out (we didn't order any appetizers). Then we had to wait *another* hour from that point to get the six chicken wings we ordered to go. Absolutely ridiculous. We were held captive for another 30 minutes after paying the bill, waiting to get those wings.
I can't help but wonder if the bad service is a direct result of the restaurant's brand new "no tipping" policy, which calls for a mandatory 20% service charge instead of a discretionary tip."

"The food is excellent! This isn't a romantic getaway by any stretch, it's pretty loud and the decor and seating is a fusion of diner and barn, but that's entirely appropriate for a barbecue place. We had ribs and pulled pork, and both were tender and delicious (the ribs come accompanied by several packets of moist hand wipes in case you're inspired to pick up and gnaw - nice touch!). There's a good variety of sides available (if you order french fries, they offer to season them with one of the house barbecue rubs), as well as house drinks (full bar) in mason jars. We're definitely going back."
