What Sauces Does Whataburger Have? 

Looking for the next big shot sauce lineup? Whataburger has some of the juiciest and most flavor-oozing burgers around. There’s no stopping the freight train of tasty burgers and finger-licking sauces. Burger King’s sauces and KFC’s sauces certainly have a tough competitor in the burgers scene! But what sauces does Whataburger have that you just need to try?

Whataburger offers a creamy pepper sauce, spicy jalapeno ranch sauce, buffalo sauce, and salsa verde sauce. But these aren’t the only sauces Whataburger has to offer. So, let’s cover them all!

💡 All Whataburger Sauces

Original Mustard

What would any burger be without a classic mustard sauce? The Original Mustard Sauce featured by Whataburger has a fantastic spicy heat, subtle sweet note, and sharp vinegary flavor. You also get the most pleasant mustard sauce finish ever, with a notably thick and slightly bumpy texture. Just add a splash of it to their What-A-Burger, What-A-Cheeseburger, and What-A-Hamburger.

Spicy Ketchup

What could get better than amping a classic ketchup with a fiery flavor boost? Whataburger’s Spicy Ketchup uses the signature Fancy Ketchup recipe but fuses it with a hot sauce made from arbol and piquin peppers. Even on paper, it sounds delicious. Just pair it with What-A-Burger, Ranchburger, and Jalapeño & Cheese Whataburger for the best flavor experience.

Real Mayonnaise Sauce

You won’t be fooled with Whataburger’s Real Mayonnaise sauce. It packs that classic delicious, rich, and creamy taste with the smoothest of consistencies. The realness comes from the fresh and very real ingredients they use to make this tasty sauce. You’ll find it pairs perfectly with the Chicken Filet Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chuckwagon Steak Sandwich, and almost all their options on the salads.

Creamy Pepper Sauce

There is no mistaking the flavor hidden beneath this pale cream sauce exterior. The heat, spice, and creaminess are thanks to the spiced mayonnaise and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce combo fusion. The light airiness of the sauce and low-calorie content are just perfect for their What-A-Burger, Ranch Burger, Patty Melt, Nat Attack, Chicken Filet Sandwich, Chuckwagon Steak Sandwich, and more.

Creamy Buttermilk Ranch Sauce

This is the first of 2 ranch Whataburger fusions. The creamy buttermilk ranch sauce is the delicious creamy buttermilk variant that has the best balance of everything. The smooth texture and a subtle splash of zest are just why it’s the perfect complement to their BLT sandwich, Cobb Salad, and Sweet & Spicy Bacon Burger.

Classic Honey Mustard

This beautiful golden sauce has long been the king of restaurant sauces. The delicious fusion of sweetness and tanginess is why it’s a must for any fast food chain. Whataburger’s Classic Honey Mustard sauce lives up to the classic name with its perfect balance of all flavors. Drizzling it over chicken tenders, Fried Chicken Salad, Super Salad, What-A-Burger, and the Ranchburger will give you the best flavor fusions ever!

Margarine Sauce

You rarely see a margarine sauce in any fast food lineup, but Whataburger’s Margarine Sauce is the best exception. The creamy and light spread it adds is the essence of richness. It’s a simple alternative to your regular butter that doesn’t overpower the flavors of your meals. Adding a generous dollop over French Toast Sticks or letting a spoonful melt over their hot Stack of Pancakes will do just the trick.

Spicy Jalapeño Ranch

The second ranch version is anything but the least. Whataburger’s Spicy Jalapeño Ranch sauce is just what the tin says. It brings a delicious amount of spice, sourness, and vinegar thanks to the green jalapeño peppers, soybean oil, garlic, and vinegar fusion. It’s the sauce to use as a dressing for Whataburger’s French fries, Apple & Cranberry Chicken Salad, onion rings, and the Jalapeño & Cheese Whataburger. You can even bring some home and use them in your spicy chicken sauce recipes.

Honey BBQ Sauce

Whataburger really loves their honey sauce combos, and the Honey BBQ sauce shows that perfectly. It melds the smoky essence of BBQ with the zing and sweet sensation of honey. What’s good about this Whataburger sauce is that it contains real honey along with tomato paste, sugar, molasses, and spices. A flavor and ingredient combo that’s perfect for their Chicken Filet Sandwich, Whatachick’n® Strips, Bacon & Cheese Whataburger, and Biscuit Sandwich.

Honey Butter Sauce

Sweetness and creaminess. This combo alone makes it one of the best types of sauces at Whataburger. The rich and lusciously smooth blend of honey’s sweetness with the faint tang of butter is why I love it. The golden hue and dippable consistency make it perfect for their Taquito with Cheese, Garden Salad, Grilled Chicken Sandwich Whatameal, and Whatawings.

Picante Sauce

Texas’s love for spicy food is truly embodied in The Whataburger Picante sauce. This type of salsa brings a whirl of smoky and hot flavors with a dash of sweet flair. The sauce starts you off with a mellow smack that gradually builds into a gentle burn on the back of the tongue. These levels of flavor are exactly what their Jalapeño & Cheese Whataburger, Whatachick’n® Sandwich, and as a dip for their Whatachick’n® Strips.

Buffalo Sauce

The world of wing sauces just got a new heavyweight contender. Even Buffalo Wild Wings sauces will be left with a lot to prove with Whatburger’s delicious buffalo sauce. They really do know how to thicken buffalo sauce, as it has a rich and smooth dipping consistency. The orange hue conceals a deliciously tangy and savory flavor that’s perfect for their Triple Meat Whataburger, the Breakfast Bowl, Whatachick’n® Sandwich, and their Family Fry Box.

Salsa Verde

A classic salsa that’s layered with double the amount of flavor. That’s the Whataburger Salsa Verde. It has the iconic luscious green texture but with an even better taste. A salsa Verde and green enchilada sauce are quite the same, but the flavor of Whataburger’s version is something else. The slight hint of smokiness and the tang of the spiciness make it the perfect companion for their What-A-Burger, Family Fry Box, and Whatawings.

Pancake Syrup

Breakfast can only get better now that Whataburger has entered the scene. Their Pancake Syrup is a clear, amber-hued delight with just the right balance of sweetness. Denny’s sauces and breakfast meals have a strong contender in the arena now. It’s the perfect maple syrup substitute as it adds that much-welcomed and needed splash of sweetness to their Stack of Pancakes or even their Hot Apple Pie, Cookies, and Cinnamon Roll.

Fancy Ketchup Sauce

The Whataburger Fancy Ketchup is a beacon of hope for all burgers and fries lovers. Even with it being one of the more simpler types of sauces at Whataburger, it doesn’t lack in the flavor department. The slightly sweeter and thicker consistency compared to regular ketchup is why so many love it. I mean, the sauce just has to be used with their French Fries, Breakfast Burgers, Whatachick’n® Strips, and their Honey BBQ Chicken Strip Sandwich.
