A fast food chain is only as good as its dipping sauces.

A writer at Thrillist.com just ranked 18 major fast food chains solely on how their best dipping sauce compares to everyone else. See what you think.

The best dipping sauces are:

  1. Culver's Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  2. Chick-fil-A Sauce
  3. Raising Cane's Sauce
  4. McDonald's Honey Mustard
  5. Whataburger Spicy Ketchup

And the worst dipping sauces are:

  1. Carl's Jr. Sweet and Bold BBQ
  2. In-N-Out Burger Spread
  3. Burger King Ranch
  4. KFC Finger Lickin' Good Sauce
  5. White Castle Zesty Zing
  6. Long John Silver's Cocktail Sauce

To be fair, I haven't tried the Raising Can's Sauce yet. Every time I get over there to try it, I get distracted by Portillo's and pull to the left instead of to the right. So, one of these days I'm going to have to stop over and try it. I hear good things.

Culver's Cheddar Sauce is relatively new, from what I understand, and my wife swears by it. And any of the Chick-fil-A sauces are super good. I really like their Polynesian BBQ sauce, but the Chick-fil-A sauce is right up there at the top.

Also, McDonald's Honey Mustard is life. I'd straight up drink that stuff.

What are your favorites? Which ones do you hate?
