Consistently ranked among the nation's best fast-food chains, there's a lot to love about Chick-fil-A. Sure, the main appeal is obviously the chicken, but the condiments are pretty darn popular. So popular, in fact, that Chick-fil-A has started selling its signature sauces by the bottle in various retail shops around the country. From their popular Barbeque and Polynesian sauces to newer flavors like Zesty Buffalo and Sriracha, this list ranks all the best Chick-fil-A dipping sauces, with your help.
Chick-fil-A's released some seriously sweet and spicy sauces over the years. While the OG Chick-fil-A Sauce was the first to hit the market back in the '80s, the chicken chain has since released and retooled numerous flavors. Some are delicious, some are spicy, and some, like the Berry Balsamic Vinaigrette, were quickly discontinued and never seen again. The menu might not be as diverse as, say, Sonic, but CFA definitely knows how to stick with the classics.

Made from a blend of barbecue, ranch, and honey mustard, it definitely has a tangy tinge. The taste is broad enough that it works as a perfect sauce to basically any meal on the menu—from nuggets to fries to Chick-n-Minis and more.

An argument can be made that Chick-fil-A's Polynesian Sauce is one of the first sauces that really became a hit, what with its tangy-yet-sweet aftertaste. In fact, this sweet(ish) sauce first debuted in 1984 (along with Barbeque and Honey Mustard) and has remained virtually unchanged ever since.
According to Chick-fil-A, it's "A delicious sweet and sour sauce with a strong, tangy flavor." More than anything, though, it's a unique take on the traditional classic sweet and sour sauce, and most foodies either love it or hate it.To dip, or not to dip?

As the newest sauce on the menu, Chick-fil-A's Sriracha Sauce is somewhat of a polarizing flavor: on one side, you have tons of fans you love the latest edition, and on the other, well, some people really aren't fans.
