Saucy's BBQ is located in SE Portland, at the corner of 52nd Ave. and Foster.

Anyway, I found out about this place through Food Carts Portland and Yelp. While the prices have increased in the last few months (no more $2 or $3 sliders), it is still very reasonably priced here. I ordered the pulled pork slider with cole slaw ($4). The pulled pork is mixed with a healthy dose of their house-made "Oregon" BBQ sauce.

I was a big fan of the slaw, to the point where I went back to the cart just to personally compliment the cart operator. The cabbage was crunchy and not drowned in a sea of creaminess (a good thing, in my opinion). He also tosses in some diced pineapple to give the slaw an extra dimension, setting him apart from the other BBQ carts. Being from Hawaii, I always appreciate wonderful uses of pineapple!
$4 for a pulled pork slider and slaw? Yes, please! I could also get a larger pulled pork sandwich (with slaw) for $7. They also do ribs and fish sandwiches. A real BBQ cart gem!
Saucy's BBQ made a wonderful first impression...one of the better pulled pork sandwiches I've had in a while. While I would have given a higher rating with a bolder KC-style sauce, I must give props to Saucy's for the fine food they produce. I definitely plan to return in the future! You can't go wrong with these prices! 8.25/10
