The Delicious Selection of Sauces Offered at Chick-fil-A


Nick Dali, Editorial Editor

Chick-fil-A is a huge hit among Poway students. They have some of the best Chicken sandwiches and chicken nuggets out there. Their entire menu is good, but everyone knows the best part about Chick-fil-A is their sauces.

They offer eight unique sauces, excluding the regulars like ketchup and mustard. Their sauces include the classic Chick-fil-A sauce, Polynesian, Honey Mustard, Garden Herb Ranch, Zesty Buffalo, Barbeque, Sriracha, and Honey Roasted BBQ.

I recently tasted all of these sauces and asked friends for their opinions. Although everyone has their own personal tastes, some sauces are clearly the favorites. I will now list the sauces in a rough order of my personal preferences.

First and foremost, we have one sauce that comes as no surprise, the classic Chick-fil-A sauce. You cannot go wrong with this delicious mix of ingredients. The sweet honey surprise mixed with the thick tasting flavor is a must-have when enjoying almost any item on their menu.

Next we have Polynesian and Zesty Buffalo sauce. I recommend these both for the chicken nuggets, and Polynesian is my personal favorite. The buffalo has a very mild kick and it goes great with the spicy chicken as well for those of you who are a bit more bold.

Honey mustard, Garden Herb Ranch, and Honey Roasted BBQ all have mixed reviews. I like both the honey sauces, but am not a fan of the ranch. Some people have the complete opposite opinion, so I recommend you try them all and decide for yourself.

Last but certainly not least, we have the barbeque and sriracha. I don’t need to say much about Barbeque as it pretty much tastes like any other BBQ sauce out there, however it does have a sweeter side to it. Sriracha is not my preference, but I have been told it goes well with certain items such as their deluxe sandwiches.

In the end, Chick-fil-A already has an amazing selection of delicious food, and their top tier sauces just add on to this amazing fast food restaurant.
