McCobb's Chili Sauce

McCobb's Chili Sauce... the perfect topping for burgers, hot dogs, and French fries. It's also great on scrambled eggs! Use it at your next picnic or BBQ on grilled chicken.

Served in the restaurant and available by the bottle in the restaurant and via mail order.

Legendary Taste

Our famous chili sauce was formulated over 70 years ago and has stood the test of time. It's the chili sauce that has been enjoyed for generations since 1940.

McCobb's Chili Sauce is not the run-of-the-mill "brown sauce" you typically find throughout New Jersey. Our secret recipe allows a bit more of the tomato taste to come through. This is how chili sauce is supposed to taste!

Don't say we didn't warn you!

Our bottled chili sauce product actually comes with the following WARNING LABEL:


McCobb's Chili Sauce may become addictive due to its sinfully delicious flavor.

"Always Homemade"

Our chili sauce is made from the finest ingredients (others say it, we mean it!). We make it in small batches on our stovetop just like our father did. Just like it has been done since 1940. In fact, one of the owners of McCobb's personally makes each batch himself to ensure that it meets his requirements of perfection and taste.

It then gets vacuum-sealed in glass bottles. Since this is a homemade product without any preservatives or other artificial ingredients to extend its life (and possibly reduce yours), you must enjoy your McCobb's Chili Sauce within six months. This turns out to be more than enough time because most people just can't resist the taste!

Ingredients: red ripe tomatoes, onions, beef, flour, natural flavoring, chili powder, spices

Our Chili Sauce is made right in the restaurant from simple, wholesome, natural ingredients. You don't need a degree in chemistry to read the label.

Humble beginnings...

McCobb's Chili Sauce saw its humble beginnings in 1940 when the recipe was formulated primarily as a topping for hot dogs and hamburgers and sold in an eight-stool roadside hot dog stand (the Maple Snack Bar, which would eventually become the McCobb's of today).

The stand was erected in Wayne, New Jersey on the Paterson-Hamburg Turnpike. From its first day, the stand exceeded all expectations. The Chili Sauce immediately became the most popular aspect of the operation. Customers began requesting the Chili Sauce to be placed in a milkshake cup for take-home use. At that point it was realized that the original recipe offered a flavor to suit every taste. As the years passed, customers began suggesting that this product be offered in a bottle for retail sale. And so, this became a reality for the purpose of satisfying customer demand within the restaurant.

Amazingly, that was only the beginning of this product's journey. Throughout the years, many loyal customers moved to other locations, thus spreading demand for McCobb's Chili Sauce to all corners of the United States. McCobb's began selling its Chili Sauce product by way of mail order. Soon, orders were coming in from all across the country. An online store is currently being developed to further serve our customers.

Although many things change in life, McCobb's Chili Sauce remains a constant. Its longevity and strong demand have been testaments to its universal appeal. McCobb's first and foremost goal is, and always will be, to leave smiles on customer's faces... once they experience the perfection in our jar.
