Our Story

Keith and Julie, founders and owners, are eager to welcome you to the Saucy Rebellion.

All historic rebellions have an origin, and this one’s roots take us to Washington D.C. – home of the iconic mambo sauce. It’s here Keith came up around a family of local chefs and mambo sauce, savoring this regional specialty, which took dishes from ordinary to epic. Julie spent the better part of her career in hospitality and hotel management. Decades of experience taught her the value of going the extra mile to ensure patrons enjoyed a memorable experience. Once retired from their respective careers, it felt intuitive to pivot to the restaurant industry. Between the two of them they had the business aspiration, creative instincts, and most importantly the desire to bring people together. Soon The 1933 Pub & Grill came to fruition in Clearwater, Florida. To this day it’s casual atmosphere and delicious pub fare are drawing in neighbors and tourists, not to mention its stalwart crew of regulars.

Introducing Mambo Sauce to the Sunshine State, it was immediately clear the world beyond D.C. needed a heavy dose of the uniquely sweet heat. No order of wings was complete without an extra side of mambo sauce, and it was only a matter of time before other mambo-centric dishes hit the specials board. It felt almost criminal that people had been deprived for far too long. Thus, Saucy Rebellion was born, with a mission to bring the sweet heat to the people. 

As we always say, fight to feast well.
