Arby's has the best mayonnaise. Even TJ and Chezkatie think it's the greatest. Some people prefer Arby's horseysauce, but for me it's all about the mayonnaise.

    In my humble opinion, all three of your are nuts. Everyone knows that Arby's horseysauce is better than mayo or Ranch dressing or even ketchup.

      Ilike to put a mixture of the horsey sauce AND the BBQ sauce on a plain roast beef sandwich.

        When it comes to Arby's, I mix equal generous portions of Arby sauce and Horsey Sauce on the roast beef. But Arby's doesn't have my nominee for the condiment hall of fame. It's the onion ring sauce at Burger King.

        Shouldn't this thread be under "chains" or did you not intend it to be about chain condiments even though you started it by mentioning one?

        If we can go beyond the offerings of chain restaurants, I'll also mention Tonkatsu sauce which I love to slather on the breaded pork cutlets for which it is intended.

          I never tried the regular mayo. However, the horsey sauce used to be part of a ritual years ago which I and a best friend ( a rock 'n' roll star now sadly deceased) partook in whenever we went to NYC, most often to Greenwich Village, or maybe up a bit to Max's Kansas City.

          In the early 1970s, there was an Arby's just outside the Holland Tunnel on the Jersey side in Hoboken. And before going into the city, we'd inevitably stop and have roast beef sandwiches with lots of horsey sauce on them...sort of get ready for the night.

              Yeah, but that would have been when Arby's had real carved-to-order steamship rounds of beef, not the pressed/formed stuff of today, wouldn't it? I'm not sure about the 70's but in the early 60's my dad used to take me to an Arby's near Baltimore that had really delicious, juicy genuine roast beef (no sauce necessary).

                It might have already been the pressed stuff. It was sliced very thin, but tasted quite good.

                  I dip mine in
                  Ass Kickin' Mustard with Habanero and then press panko crumbs on them and fry them.............excellent and a real bite!

                    Standard prep: Flour 'em, dip in egg wash (though lately I'm experimenting with "Egg Beaters"), dredge in breadcrumbs. I usually pan fry 'em but rarely I deep fry 'em. Whatever seems easiest at the time.

                    Nothing fancy in the breading, Greymo, because I really like the Tonkatsu sauce on 'em and it wouldn't go with an intensely flavored breading.

                    By the way, my supermarket sells "thin cut" boneless loin chops which work perfectly and they are often on sale.

                      I never get the mayonaisse at Arby's, but a beef and cheddar drenched in Arby's sauce does well when one's in a hurry. They'd be better if they put sauteed onions on them though. Ha ha!

                        This doesn't have anything to do with Arbys, but I recently found a muffalata spread at my Giant in Annapolis. Basically just an olive relish, a little spice, but not really comparable to what you'd get in NOLA, it does nice things for sandwiches and dogs though. Don't recall the brand, but I'll check if anyones interested.
                        As for Arby's, I'm a BBQ/Horsey sauce guy.

                          I always sneak a few extra horsey sauce to put in my home made coleslaw!

                            ugh. :-)

                            NO!!!

                            Mayonnaise (and every time I write that word, the drill sergeant scenes from "An Officer and a Gentleman" roll through my head) is a foul, horrid concoction. Pure spreadable nastiness. Feel free to quote me on that :-)

                            No matter who serves it, Arby's or otherwise.

                              Have y'all tried the Tabasco brand mayonaise? It's just a bit spicey... great on turkey, ham or roast beast sandwhiches. I can hardly wait to try it on garder tomatoes!

                                  Horseradish, one of my favourites. Absolutely love the stuff, it has such a great texture.

                                      I ordered 2 jars of McIlhenny's hot mayo - very good!

                                      Kraft evidently discontinued their spicy Mayo.

                                      Lots of tasty sauces on the Tabasco site!

                                        I really like to mix Arby sauce and ketchup and put it on their potato cakes. Also, I love Taco Bell's fire sauce, Wendy's sweat and sour sauce and Taco Tico's green chile (not all mixed together)

                                              I prefer the Horsey sauce: I like to use three packages on a Giant Roast Beef sandwich. I put two packages worth on the top bun, close it up, then flip it to put a package worth on the bottom of the sandwich...ensuring uniform Horsey flavor with every bite. MMMM!

                                                Sounds like a few fast-food franchise lovers here...[:o) Trader Joe's "another chain" sells a small jar of Sweet/Hot Mustard which is so good you could eat it with a spoon.

                                                    Trader Joe's also sells a roasted red pepper spread that I have eaten with a spoon.

                                                            Sorry, I couldn't resist that. I have a very literal sense of humor. I used to have a boss who insisted that people would 'literally give me ****'. I would come unglued over that (but not LITERALLY).
