Brings back the memories
WOW.... so happy that I finally found the sauce used at my old time favorite Roast Beef place Nick's in Beverly Massachusetts. I'm living 1500 miles away and craving one of there sandwiches so I ordered a case of 6, went to our local market deli got the rarest roast beef cut extremely thin almost shaved, some Wonder Bread hamburger buns and was my mouth a watering when I opened and poured this delicious James River BBQ Sauce all over the roast beef sandwich. It was even better than I remembered, cant wait to make a second one...

My favorite sauce!
I LOVE this sauce. It was available at Arby's several years ago and labeled as 'Arby's Sauce'. When they went to their own blend it just wasn't the same. It has no kick. I even wrote Arby's asking them to bring back the James River Sauce! Now I get Arby's to go or bring my own sauce.

Oh so good!
I have used this sauce for over 15 years. My family loves it. It can be used in so many ways. I usually buy 12 bottles so my extended family can enjoy also.

The Best Sauce Ever
This is truly the best sauce ever. The ONLY one I will eat or buy for that matter. You can get it in certain places. Mike's Toast Beef in Billerica sells it.

Can't Beat It
This is the best BBQ Sauce on the market. Used to be able to get it in MA. Now in AZ and can't find it. So grateful I can order it directly from Smithfield! It's the little things in life that make us happy !!!!

Love this stuff
We use to buy this at Atkinson Pizza in Atkinson, NH. But now she sells it in cups and you really can't store that. My mom uses it in stews, meatloaf, on steaks and in sandwiches. You can't buy it at Rileys Roast Beef in No. Andover

I worked at Big Fred's Roast Beef all through high school (in the 70's) - and this was all we used. Can be found in a local market on rare occasions...

From the North Shore Boston MA
Ok, so I know about Kelly's and I also know of Harrison's Roast Beef in North Andover (Previously Riley's Roast Beef Lawrence, MA) and this sauce is the stuff for sure!!!!!

A must have for any sandwich. Love the viscosity of this sauce compared to others. Finishes with a spicy zing. Huge fan!

Finally found it!
Grew up in N Shore Mass, and been really missing a good roast beef 3-way. Thanks to the word getting out on the net what sauce most of the shops use, I can "go home" without leaving my kitchen. Will be keeping this well stocked in my cupboard.

Wicked Good Sauce
I'm from MA and looked forward to a trip; Kelly's, Bill and Bob's,Big Fred's,Mino's or Chick's.All great roast beef places with one common factor....James River BBQ sauce

I too live in NC but grew up in MA where the best place for Roast Beef sandwiches is Supreme's in Danvers. (I sooo miss REAL Roast beef sandwiches with sauce and cheese) They use this sauce and it is definitely the best! I have a friend buy it for me and send it. My family fights over it!

When I moved to North Carolina 16 years ago from Boston I did not know there were no Roast Beef shops outside of the Boston Area. I was craving my Kelly's Beef and Bill and Bob's famous roast beef sandwiches. When I went back home to visit I bought a bottle of the sauce and realized this is made about 1 hour from where I live in NC. I called and ordered a case to have in stock and make me a beef twice a week. I have since turned my southern buddies onto this sandwich with the James River sauce and now its time to buy another case. This is the best sauce ever and it helps me get some of that old home cooking while living here in in NC.

Beef BBQ in the can, like in the 60's
Please !! Do you make the beef BBQ in the can? It was wonderful. I tried your sauces but it's not the same recipe used in the beef BBQ you once made. Help !
