Mumbo Sauce

"Mumbo sauce,” “mambo sauce” and “mombo sauce” are three different spellings for perhaps the same sauce, served as a barbecue sauce on fried chicken wings, fired jumbo shrimp and french fries. 


Wikipedia: Mumbo sauce
Mumbo sauce or mambo sauce is a condiment developed and popularized in Washington, DC take-out restaurants. The red-orange sauce is similar to barbecue sauce, but somewhat sweeter, and also somewhat spicier or more sour. (There is some variation in flavor and consistency.) It is put onto fried chicken wings, french fries, fried jumbo shrimp, and fried rice. The origin and ingredients of Mumbo sauce are subject to great dispute. It is often compared to Chicago mild sauce, found at take-out restaurants in that city’s predominantly Black neighborhoods.

History
The trademark Mumbo name was first used by Argia B. Collins, Sr., for use in connection with a barbecue sauce he developed for his Chicago restaurant. Since at least as early as 1950, Mr. Collins and his business used this trademark, and his successor-in-interest, Select Brands, LLC, registered the trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on May 25, 1999, Registration No. 2,247,855. The Mumbo trademark has been used for sauces, and appears on labels as part of the phrase Mumbo® Sauce.

However, according to Capital City Mumbo Sauce, the sauce originated in a restaurant called “Wings-n-Things” in the late 1960s.
