It’s 2 a.m. Saturday and unfortunately the night is coming to an end. Raleigh clubs and bars begin to vacate and the lines for the hot dog vendors begin to grow. But tonight the crowd is yearning for something a little more filling and wants somewhere to wind down comfortably.  The perfect place to go is the newly opened Sauced Pizza! Located conveniently on Glenwood South, Sauced goes above and beyond serving great food during regular hours, serving as a great late-night hangout destination as well. Thursday through Saturday, the restaurant stays open until 3 a.m., satisfying your late-night food cravings as well as providing an excellent spot to hang out after a night out on the town.

Sauced offers a contemporary, upscale atmosphere for patrons to enjoy fresh New York-Style pizza and a full bar at any time, a refreshing aspect to the usual late-night eateries everyone is accustomed to.  Sauced serves a variety of pizza selections that may surprise you, including ‘The Tarheel’, which despite the name could charm anyone’s taste buds no matter your school affiliation. Or for all of the die-hard State fans, Sauced made sure to include something to satisfy the “pack” in its ‘Wolfpack’ pizza, which includes a generous amount of grilled chicken, BBQ sauce, and red onion.

Sauced should definitely not be confused with your average pizza place. Though the restaurant’s focus is on pizza, Sauced’s menu offers fresh, delicious choices for everyone in your group, even the pickiest of eaters! “The eatery features not only pizza by the slice, but also appetizers, salads, calzones, and other casual-fare menu items. An emphasis on fresh ingredients and detailed attention to service and experience is what owners Lombardo and Lam are paying careful attention to, ensuring customers a dining and bar experience that will warrant many returned visits” (

So next time when confronted with picking the perfect place for everyone, whether it be for the late-night munchies or a lunch break, consider Sauced. You can’t go wrong with the wonderful ambiance and array of different menu items. Don’t worry your friends can thank you with a slice later.
