Given the dominance of chicken sandwiches in the marketplace, it might not be surprising that mayonnaise is the most frequently mentioned condiment on American restaurant menus, according to Technomic’s MenuMonitor of the top 500 chains.
Of the 3,863 sandwiches on menus, mayonnaise is mentioned in 777 of the descriptions.
Mustard was the second most frequently mentioned condiment between July and December 2010.
“Honey,” generally modifying another word such as “mustard” came in third.
