Saucy’s BBQ (#227, 10/11/12)
New Orleans has great food, but it’s not known for its barbecue. And it’s Chinese food kind of stinks too. Actually, Mexican isn’t very good either. But a new bbq joint opened up on Magazine Street so I made the trip Uptown for lunch to give Saucy’s a try. It has all of the basics of a bbq joint, but I had read somewhere that the brisket was outstanding, so I gave it a run. Very solid. Not spectacular, but worth a lunch stop. They have a lot of different sauces, so need to explore those a bit more to figure out which is best. Good portions with solid sides (I went with mac and cheese and potato salad) and also a muffin of some sort that was excellent.
As an addition from May 2013, Saucy’s has a booth at the YLC Wednesday’s at the Square and the brisket quesadillas they were serving were some of the best quesadillas I have ever had. Will definitely try in the main restaurant.
