The can’t-live-without-it condiment Duke’s Mayonnaise launches its ghost kitchen Duke’s Sauce Shack in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Tuesday, May 10. Available exclusively through Uber Eats and Doordash, Sauce Shack will have four locations across the city to meet expected demand.
The simple menu consists of mostly Duke’s-based dipping sauces, chicken, and fries. The condiments include original mayo, bacon-tomato mayo, habanero garlic mayo, Alabama white sauce, chipotle ranch dressing, cilantro lime vinaigrette, Carolina gold barbecue sauce, blue cheese dressing, Carolina vinegar sauce, brown sugar bourbon mustard, ranch dressing, wing sauce, honey mustard dressing, and a signature sauce (which most likely contains mayonnaise).
Chicken comes in the choices of nuggets, tenders, or a sandwich — grilled, crispy, or spicy.
And then there’s fries for all those sauces.
This is the first time Duke’s has launched a restaurant. The Southern staple started in Greenville, South Carolina, in 1917, when Eugenia Duke decided to sell sandwiches in Army canteens with her signature spread. She started bottling it in 1923, and now it is the obsession of many mayo connoisseurs across the country.
