What was once one of North Carolina’s best kept secrets, Boar and Castle Sauce is now known throughout the world. It all started in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1932, when Leon Thomas opened his castle shaped restaurant named after a pub in a Samuel Johnson novel, Boar and Castle. This famous sauce was his mother’s recipe, which is now over 100 years old, and was slathered on everything in “The Castle” from the signature Castleburgers, butter steak sandwiches to fries and onion rings. Families, teenagers, college kids; everyone would drive from miles and miles around to go eat at the legendary Boar and Castle. Leon’s restaurant was also a gathering place and was like a scene straight out of “American Graffiti”.
Boar and Castle Sauce is not just a sauce, it is memories. It has stood the test of time and is just as popular now as it was in 1932. If you have never experienced the deliciousness of their sauce, just remember that it’s the anything and everything sauce!
