saucehouse bbq athens

Saucehouse is a wholly original, one-of-kind Athens landmark. Featuring a wraparound porch, beer garden, bar, fountain, fire pit, and delicious bbq and sides, and water tower - it really has to be experienced to be believed.

Located off of Broad Street right near the heart of downtown, the project site was redeveloped into the bustling destination it is today. Engineering challenges included buffering for the adjacent residential areas, low impact design to minimize stormwater runoff, and creative landscaping to complement the year-round indoor/outdoor business and events.

Per Melanie and Randy Cooper of Atlanta Food Critic - "If there’s such a foodie genre as “social BBQ” Saucehouse BBQ would be it’s epicenter."

Projects like Saucehouse showcase what we call placemaking. It is the perfect example of engineering and design around people, creating pedestrian scale places that people love to be in.
