A new barbecue joint is coming to Dickson Street this fall.

The folks behind Grotto and Upstairs restaurants in Eureka Springs are set to open a new “chef-inspired” barbecue restaurant called ‘Sauced’ in the space formerly home to Flying Burrito Company at 540 W. Dickson St., across from George’s Majestic Lounge.

The restaurant will focus on classic barbecue dishes like pulled pork, ribs, and brisket with handmade sauces, and other dishes. They’ll also offer the wings they become somewhat known from Grotto in Eureka Springs, and a sandwich they call the “fatty,” with hand lattice bacon, two types of sausage, with cheese, and then smoked.

“It will be everything you love about your hometown smoked meats with all the big flavor only a chef can bring,” said co-owner Autumn Slane of the new restaurant.

Renovations on the space have already begun, and Spencer said they hope to be up and running sometime this fall. You can also follow their progress on Facebook.
