The Allmusic review by Stephen Cook awarded the album 4½ stars, stating: "Soul Sauce is one of the highlights from Tjader's catalog with its appealing mixture of mambo, samba, bolero, and boogaloo styles... an album full of smart arrangements, subtly provocative vibe solos, and intricate percussion backing."[2]
