Sauces and condiments are a necessary part of our daily meals, as they give our meals a whole different texture and taste. Food sauces are made up of three components; the liquid part, a thickening agent or vegetable purees, and seasoning. The purpose of a sauce is to add moisture and texture to the served food. It also adds to the flavor and richness of the meal.

Therefore, the standard of a good sauce is tied to the thickness, texture, and color. The thickness, because a sauce needs thickness to be spread evenly to give the food a balanced taste, the texture for proper distribution of ingredients to make sure nothing is lacking, and the color which stands as part of its character.

Various restaurants have their signature sauces, some of which are rated well for filling all the criteria, while some have been described as worse due to their taste, texture, or even color. In Orange County, where millennials are its populous inhabitants, sauces have been reviewed.
