Zaxby's Zax Sauce is my absolute favorite for dipping chicken or fries! I love this copycat Zaxby's Sauce recipe-it's so easy to make!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate at least two hours before serving


  • I use light Duke's mayonnaise and have no issues with it although many other copycat recipes I've found online recommend Hellman's, supposedly because the lemon flavor is more pronounced.  I add lemon juice to mine so I've had no issue.
  • Spray your measuring spoon with nonstick spray before measuring the molasses-it will slide right off and make sure you get the proper amount in the bowl, no sticking to the spoon!
