Yes, it is true. Livermore will now have a BBQ restaurant in downtown by the name of Sauced BBQ and Spirits. Located in the space formerly occupied by Sapphire Lounge at 2300 First Street, the new restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner. It gets better. They will also have an awesome, brand new bar with 20 flat screens to feed our sports needs. A matter of fact, the entire space will get a face lift with completely new interior decor. The restaurant plans to have a family friendly atmosphere with hospitality straight from the South.
With Georgia roots, the Co-owner has done some competition BBQ’ing and plans to bring that slow smokey flavor front and center. Think: brisket, Angus burgers, sandwiches, spareribs, and even wings. As for those crazy southern fried items, they will make a small appearance on the menu. The fully stocked bar will include mircobrews on tap, specialty spirits, and cocktails fit for even the pickiest of drinkers.
The family owned and operated venue will be a great addition to downtown. Look for an opening in mid-February.
