I spend a lot of time in the Union Square area, and when I’m in the mood for a nice fat, tasty sausage, a good place to go is Sausage Inc, a member of our Honorary Street Food category. They are located at 106 University Place, between 12th & 13th St, where I stopped over the weekend.

They have 6 different types of sausages, a bunch of sauces, some sides and condiments, and seating for no more than 8-10 people, a strict requirement for our Honorary Street Food category.

The first time there we enjoyed what they suggested, a Farmer’s Sausage. This time we chose for ourselves and went for the Chipolata ($6 after tax). I know it sounds like a new Starbucks drink, but it’s actually a pork and chipotle sausage.

Every sausage is served on a pretzel bun (!) and comes with sauteed onions. As you enter the store, you walk past a giant griddle with sausages and onions grilling, just in case you weren’t hungry enough.

The sausage itself was big, chunky and semi-spicy. I tried two of the condiments – Hellfire sauce and Horseradish sauce.

If you want a REALLY spicy sauce, Hellfire will do the trick. It’s habañero hot, meaning brutal! The Horseradish sauce was actually a more appropriate sauce for the Chipolata, giving off some nasal-clearing heat, but not obliterating my tongue like the Hellfire sauce.

The pretzel bun was a nice surprise. It had a soft pretzel taste and texture, and went really well with the heavy sausage and grilled onions. It stood up much better than a standard sausage roll, and by the end of lunch, I was pretty well filled up from just the sausage and pretzel bun.

Some of the other sausages available were Blanco (pork & basil), Veggie and Thanksgiving (turkey, stuffing and cranberry) and other sauces were a sweet chili sauce, chipotle mayo, cilantro pesto, garlic aioli and a smoked bbq sauce.

Our second visit to Sausage Inc was as good as our first. Next time we might just try the Thanksgiving sausage. We do love cranberry sauce.



  1. Dude, you will be glad to know that I was visited SAUSAGE INC some days ago. I really satisfied by their service. Thanks mate.
