There is a very famous restaurant in Baffin Bay, Texas (East of Riviera, Texas), called King's Inn. The specialties of the house are sliced avocado salad, onion rings, shrimp, and their tartar sauce/seafood sauce. It is absolutely to die for and I have the recipe!!! It's definitely a restaurant recipe, as it makes a huge amount...so reduce the recipe as needed.
- 1 quart mayonnaise
- 1 quart Miracle Whip
- 10 eggs, hard-boiled, peeled
- saltine crackers (3 tubes or 3/4 box)
- 5 stalks celery
- jalapeno pepper, seeded (to taste)
- 2 1⁄2 ounces Worcestershire sauce
- salt (to taste)
- 2 small bell peppers, seeded
- 1 (4 ounce) jar pimientos
- 1 (2 ounce) can anchovy fillets
- 1 large onion
- fresh garlic (to taste)
- Finely chop celery, jalapenos, bell peppers, anchovies, garlic, and onion.
- Add salt and Worcestershire sauce.
- Break crackers into small pieces.

The recipe for the King's Inn tartar sauce was in the newspaper a long time ago. I know some friends have the recipe still, but I don't remember it at all. I pretty sure they use chile pequin instead of jalepenos.
WOW....... I have heard for years from this person and that person that they had the recipe for the Famous King's Inn Seafood sauce. I have seen many interpretations of this recipe. I will have to admit that this is the closest I have ever seen someone come up with. They have ALL the ingredients EXCEPT ONE ingredient. I know one other person that had the original recipe. She had worked there for Many Years. I have had the recipe for over 25 years. I got it from the Main Cook there for over 25 years. Mine measured the vegetables by the pound using a gallon of Mayo and a Gallon of Miracle Whip. A can of this and a half a bottle of that, including a 1/4 bottle worcestershire sauce. (4ozs.) it made 3-4 gallons of Seafood Sauce. I Measured everything out and then divided it by Four to give me a recipe Much like this one above. I was sworn to secrecy years ago. You are very close , but "NO CIGAR"....... LOL
