I'm not going to give a review. Just go and eat, find out for yourself. You'll be back it was amazing. Forget about the construction, it's minor and enjoy the great food.

My brother and I stopped here for lunch on a Monday afternoon. We both got a pork sandwich, side of brisket and another side. The shredded pork was good, not awesome, but tasty. The mac n cheese was also good. The brisket tho, was fantastic. Thick, juicy and you could cut it with a plastic fork. The sauce was also... More

First, I'd rather not tell you about their BBQ. Why? Because I don't want Sauceman's to get too crowded. I prefer shorter lines and tons of tables to choose from, however, I owe it to my fellow Charlotteans to let the secret out. Great gosh, where do I begin? Well, perhaps I'll keep it simple. Their BBQ is fantastic!! It's... More

Seriously the best BBQ I've ever had. I can't stop eating it I tried it for the first time 3 days ago and I've been here for the past 3 days. I think that explains it well enough

I've been going to Sauceman's for a few years now and it is now a weekly stop when in town. You always feel welcome there and the staff seems to care about the clients. The food comes out quick (1-3 minutes) usually and is consistently good. The sauces are quite good (ask for their white sauce) and while i'm not... More

This is hands down the best barbecue chicken I have ever had. Fall apart, moist, melt in your mouth goodness. Couple it with the grilled corn on the cob and slaw and prepare those around you that you may make animal noises. It's that good!
