Winner winner chicken dinner! When your claim to fame is juicy chicken tenders, you know your going for a dip. Forget the ranch and ketchup, Yankee doodle Dandee’s serves all their fries and tenders with their famous Spirit of ’76 sauce.

Holy Phuc! When that’s the name of a taco on your menu, you better have the sauce to back it up. We like our beer battered fish tacos drowning in a sea of special sauce, holy phuc indeed…
Ok so everyone loves French fries, even people gluten free people love French fries. But any true fry fan knows it’s not so much the fries themselves that make them so great. It’s what we dip them in!! The perfect vehicle for any sauce you fancy, we recommend the truffle.
THE EMPANADA SONATA
Little hand held pockets of amazingness. These empanadas may be filled with the good stuff, but are incomplete without a cannonball into one of The Empanada Sonata’s famous dipping sauces. Siracha aioli, sweet Thai chili, or a swan dive into some chipotle cream, don’t worry you don’t need to choose just one.
