Ever heard of Fry Sauce?
Posted 3/31/14
Used to eat fries with that when I was a kid... and I lived in the Philippines then. Never knew until now that there’s actually a name for it. *shrug*

I live in Utah as well, and I was blown away when I realized that it was uncommon to have it in other states. I had always assumed that fry sauce was as common as ketchup and mustard.

I've been to restaurants in other states, and asked for some fry sauce. I have to eat everything with it. It's just so good. *^*
But to my misfortune, they don't know what it is I'm asking, so they just point to the ketchup!

My question is, is it really a "Utah thing"?
Have you heard of "fry sauce"?

If you haven't heard of it, it's nothing special. It's just mayonnaise mixed with ketchup. My homemade fry sauce, though, has a bit of lemon juice, BBQ sauce, pickle juice, and seasoned salt. Fancy, huh?

(Sorry if this is already a topic. I can't seem to find it. Maybe I made something like this before? My memories bad.)


Fry....sauce? This is an official thing in utah? Where you can go up to the counter and ask to have fries sauce with your fries? There is....an official 'sauce for fries' in utah?


This is as close as it gets to official. You can buy it at Walmart.

It seems to be primarily a Northwest / Inland Northwest thing. I am surprised Utah has it as Nevada generally does not from my experience. Same with Colorado. It is common in Eastern Washington and Oregon along with Idaho and Montana.

Past that, it seems fairly sporadic across the rest of the country. Some places have it, but others do not. I am not sure if I have seen a large geographic area that has it outside of the Pacific Northwest really.

It seems odd, but across the country condiments vary. Some places primarily serve BBQ sauce, others Ranch, and yet others mustard, and then there is the old standby of ketchup. But what is considered to be the primary condiment really seems to differ from area to area.

At least that is my experience. Your mileage may vary of course.

Stephen's Gourmet Fry Sauce is also sold in stores.



Some claim that the original fry sauce is from Arctic Circle. My favorite Utah fry sauce would actually be either the one served at The Training Table or Davanza's/The Junction in Park City.

Although I don't believe Red Robin's Campfire Sauce originated here, it is my all time favorite dipping sauce and it is often regarded as a version of fry sauce in Utah and possibly surrounding states. Other states simply call it Campfire Sauce.

Basic recipe is just mayonnaise and ketchup. The more tasty varieties mentioned above add other seasonings, ingredients (relish, mustard, or others added to the mix), or substitute ketchup with BBQ sauce.

Sounds like an usual combination, but than again Worcestershire sauce is an usual combination too.

As a New Yorker....wtf. But also as a New Yorker I think I have come across it in some adventure to some place not NYC. I have been in upstate/western New York and love Garbage Plates so I wouldn't be surprised if I encountered it there since it's like a soul food. Still love ketchup and honey mustard though.

I've heard of it, and tried it. I think's it pretty meh. My mom loves it. It's not the worst though. I think I would prefer Fry Sauce over Thousand Island. I can't stand Thousand Island.

Yes, I lived in Utah for a couple of years while attending University.

Utah is the only place I have seen Fry Sauce. Easy to make though since it's just mayo and ketchup.

Utah is also the only place I know that eats the nasty jello concoctions you see below.

That's strange. Never heard of it over here on the East Coast.


No worries. Fluffernutter outclasses Fry Sauce any day.

This just reminded me of how some people like to take chicken nuggets and dip them in honey. Anyone ever try it? It is actually pretty good. In fact, McDonald's used to have little packets of pure honey. Some people would use it for chicken nuggets. They don't have honey anymore. I never used honey on chicken nuggets much, but now that I think about it, it is good and something different, and I think sometime I'll grab some chicken nuggets from a fast food place, bring it home, and eat it with some honey.

Seriously? People haven't heard of fry sauce? Mix mayo and ketchup and you've got fry sauce. Better yet, mix Sriracha and mayo. But, If you've been living under a rock for the past half century and haven't heard of fry sauce, you surely won't know what Sriracha is.
