💡 All Arby’s Sauces

Arby’s Sauce

The house of Arby’s has produced its finest special sauces to date, and it’s fantastic. This classic tomato-based sauce has a sweet and tangy BBQ taste. The garlic, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper combo are the ideal pairing for red meat. This would be a classic match for roast beef sandwiches, potato cakes, and fries. I actually love to pair it with a savory ham and cheese slider or a succulent turkey sandwich. 

Horsey Sauce

The horseradish blend by Arby’s is something you need to try. The Horsey Sauce is rightfully named so. It’s creamy and silky with a delicious blend of horseradish, mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar. The creamy mayo base, zing from the horseradish, and vinegar are perfect for Arby’s roast beef sandwich or their delicious Reuben. It also works well as a dipping sauce for curly fries or onion rings.

Red Ranch Sauce

Tomatoey goodness combined with the classic flavors of the ranch sauce. What can get better than that? It boasts a ketchup base infused with garlic, onion, and Worcestershire sauce seasoning to be proud of. It pairs deliciously with their sandwiches, fries, and nuggets. But I love to use it with the Loaded Italian sandwich. I also can’t get enough of it with the Beef and Cheddar option.

Spicy Three Pepper Sauce

Arby’s Spicy Three Pepper Sauce. Three tasty peppers, three different flavors, and one delicious sauce. It’s made with a creamy base that’s packed with a blend of spicy peppers, including jalapenos, paprika, and, surprisingly, red bell peppers. The red bell peppers actually help rein in the sauce, allowing a perfect pairing with an Arby’s Roast Beef sandwich or chicken nuggets and even mozzarella sticks.

Parmesan Peppercorn Ranch Sauce

This sauce is a three-piece combo of flavors. The culinary minds behind Arby’s produced a cheesy, tangy, and spicy sauce that’s hands down delicious! The Parmesan Peppercorn Sauce combines peppercorns, ranch, parmesan cheese, and cracked black pepper. This combo is more than just fantastic for sandwiches. But it can even be served as a dipping sauce for their curly fries and other finger foods.

Spicy Buffalo Sauce

Taking the already delicious buffalo sauce and leveling it up is a practice done by many. But Arby’s has a knack for it. It’s a fantastic fiery and tangy blend boasting notes of cayenne pepper and tangy vinegar. Arby’s also have the best methods for thickening buffalo sauce, as it’s just the perfect consistency and richness. Just use them on their famous curly fries for that splash of heat on their crispy skin.

Smoky Q Sauce

A sauce with the grill lover in mind. The Smoky Q Sauce. It’s a sauce powered by vinegar, tomato, garlic, onion, molasses, and smoke flavoring. Its intense barbecue flavor and hints of sweet caramelization are what really draw the crowd in. The sauce is exclusively for sandwiches and is served on the Smokehouse Brisket sandwich. This is where it truly shines, taking the smoky, savory flavors of the brisket to new heights.

Tzatziki Sauce

What types of sauces at Arby’s are better than the palate-pleasing Tzatziki Sauce. It’s a true traditional Greek delight. The sauce features tangy yogurt, crunchy cucumbers, fragrant dill, and a touch of garlic and lemon juice. The zesty, refreshing, tangy, and slightly herbal flavor pairs well with their lamb gyro. But I’ve always taken to splashing it on a steak sandwich or even as a topping for some delicious baked potato.    

Bronco Berry Sauce

Not everyone is a fan of sweet sauces, but Arby’s Bronco Berry Sauce does the sweet sauce name justice. It has a jelly-like consistency that gives a fantastic burst of berry goodness. But the real shocker is that there isn’t a single berry in the recipe, as it uses jalapenos, cayenne, and paprika. While it’s specifically for Arby’s Jalapeno Bites, you can use it as a dipping sauce for chicken nuggets and fries or a delicious stir-fry sauce.

Tangy Barbecue Sauce

The first devoted BBQ sauce in Arby’s sauce lineup doesn’t disappoint. The Tangy Barbeque Sauce is a rich and smoky delight inspired by the Kansas City-style BBQ sauce tradition. They know how to thicken BBQ sauce to just the perfect consistency. It combines a delicious blend of vinegar, tomato, molasses, onion, spices, and smoke flavoring. Just dip it with their iconic curly fries or smother it on a beef’ n’ cheddar sandwich.

Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Arby’s doesn’t disappoint with an American classic. They use the best techniques for thickening cheese sauce that allow for a creamy, warm, and balanced sauce. This smooth sauce can add rich layers of flavor to the savory roast beef, curly fries, or onion rings. I love to drizzle them on the Turkey Ranch and Bacon sandwich.

Au Jus Sauce

You don’t often see an Au Jus sauce in a restaurant sauce lineup, but Arby’s sauce is definitely one that’s not misplaced. This rich beef stock-based sauce is infused with subtle notes of garlic, onion, and various herbs. I wouldn’t know what to use instead of au jus on their Beef’ n Cheddar sandwich or their signature French Dip.

Marinara Sauce

Pizza sauce or marinara sauce? I think Arby’s take on Marinara Sauce decides for you. The sauce features a classic tomato base and a blend of aromatic spices. With its salty, tomatoey tang, a balance between the tomato tang and acidity, and the sweet and slightly spicy notes at play, what’s not to love. Pair it with the beloved mozzarella sticks, curly fries, or jalapeño bites.

Dijon Honey Mustard Sandwich Sauce

Tailored for the Arby sandwich selection is a sauce that’s well and truly delicious. The Dijon Honey Mustard sandwich sauce fuses Dijon, mustard seeds, honey, and paprika in one tender and rich package. This variation has a stronger tomato flavor with subtle hints of herbs. The combination of ingredients doesn’t just limit it to sandwiches. You can pair it with baked ham or roasted fish.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

The root of any good sauce lies in its flavor and use. Arby’s Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce has all this and more. Not only does it pair particularly well with the restaurant’s crispy tenders, but it also has a sweet and tangy flavor that’s just delicious. KFC sauces also feature a honey mustard sauce, but I love Arby’s more. The sauce works just wonders with their crispy tenders and curly fries.

Gyro Sauce

What sauce won’t Arby’s cover? That’s the real question. This sauce stands out with its delicious traditional Greek Tzatziki flavors. It has a base of cool and tangy yogurt complemented by the distinct essence of cucumber. This sauce pairs wonderfully with Arby’s Greek gyro or their Roast Beef gyro. They also complement crispy chicken sandwiches, fries, mozzarella sticks, or roast beef sliders.    

Spicy Brown Honey Mustard Sauce

A restaurant classic with an Arby twist. The Brown Honey Mustard Sauce features a blend of vinegar, eggs, mustard, and a hint of horseradish to give it a spicy kick. The twist? The addition of brown mustard. You can pair it exceptionally well with their chicken tenders, Roast Beef Slider, or the Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wrap. But no other dish truly complements it more than the Buttermilk Chicken sandwich.

Ranch Dipping Sauce

It wouldn’t be right if Arby’s didn’t have a Ranch Dipping Sauce. This sauce is both refreshing and very light and vibrant compared to other ranch options. You can play your cards well and use them on sandwiches and wraps. But since it’s a dipping sauce, it’ll be just perfect for dipping crispy fries or tender chicken strips. It goes even better with Arby’s chicken sandwiches and mozzarella sticks.
