What Is Wahl Sauce?

Perusing the menu at Wahlburgers and noticed the inclusion of ‘Wahl sauce’? Wondering what it is, what it tastes like, and what to expect? Besides, you might not even like it – you wouldn’t want your burger to go to waste. So, without further ado, here is what you want to know.

So, what is Wahl sauce? Wahl sauce is the signature burger sauce of Wahlburgers, included in ‘The Our Burger’, ‘Double Decker’ and ‘The Impossible Burger’. It is smooth in consistency, and combines ketchup, mayonnaise, sriracha, sauteed onions, and parsley for a creamy, sweet, savory, and mildly hot flavor.

If you like your burgers and you like your burger sauce, then you are going to want to give this a try.

And with 21 locations, and more on the way (including in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand), it’s becoming even easier to do so.

And there is better news too.

You can actually buy this sauce at certain retailers too. But more on that later.

But first and foremost, what is Wahl sauce actually made of?

What Is Wahl Sauce Made Of?

Wahl sauce is made from a combination of ketchup, mayonnaise, sriracha, vinegar, mustard among a blend of different herbs and ingredients.

While the exact ingredients are not disclosed on the company website, we can get an idea of what may be included, and in what kind of proportions, from the product sold at retail stores.

Here is the full ingredient list, on the side of the bottle, for instance:

Ketchup [Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Corn Sweetener (High Fructose Corn Syrup, Corn Syrup), Vinegar, Salt, Dehydrated Onion, Seasoning (Salt, Natural Flavors, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder)], Soybean Oil, Corn Syrup, Water, Egg Yolks, Distilled Vinegar, Prepared Mustard (Water, Vinegar, Mustard Seed), Salt, Rice Vinegar, Sriracha Chili Sauce [Chili, Sugar, Salt, Garlic, Diluted Acetic Acid, Potassium Sorbate And Sodium Bisulfite (As Preservatives), And Xanthan Gum], Sugar, Salt, Garlic, Diluted Acetic Acid, Potassium Sorbate And Sodium Bisulfite (As Preservatives), And Xanthan Gum), Potassium Sorbate And Sodium Benzoate (As Preservatives), Natural Flavors, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Annatto (For Color), Calcium Disodium Edta (To Protect Flavor).

Now, it must be stated that this is the packaged version of the sauce.

Whether or not this is what they use in the Wahlburger restaurants, or they make it from scratch is not known.

But, rest assured, it is likely to be very similar.

What Does Wahl Sauce Taste Like?

Wahl sauce has a very moreish flavor. It is sweet, savory, creamy, and tangy all at the same time. While there is some heat, it is not considered to be a spicy sauce and is in fact tangier.

It is also quite thick in consistency but blended smooth.

What To Eat Wahl Sauce With?

Wahl sauce is a burger sauce first and foremost. So, it is best with burgers. In fact, this is why it is included in three of the 3/7 burgers on the menu (at the time of writing), including ‘Paul’s Choice’ – the signature Wahlburger menu.

Nonetheless, this really is a versatile sauce and goes with pretty much anything.

For that reason you can use it to drizzle over salad, have with other meats (such as grilled chicken), use as a dipping sauce for fries, or even add to your sandwiches.

How Do You Buy Wahl Sauce?

Wahl sauce is currently available at a select number of retailers. Meijer, Jewel-Osco, Acme Markets, and Hy-Vee being the most notable. Although Wahlburgers is trying to expand into additional retailers and is expected to in the near future.

Aside from that, there is always online.

And what better place to buy your Wahl sauce than Amazon.


Wahl sauce is a burger sauce first and foremost.

And it’s a particularly good one at that.

So I would thoroughly recommend that you order Paul’s Choice, ‘The Our Burger’ and see for yourself.

Once you do you’ll see how addictive it really is.

And before you know it, you’ll be trying to get a bottle to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Besides, it improves the flavors in the other food, not hides them!
