RED hamburger relish - where to buy?

I'm thinking specifically of the relish they use at Bob's Big Boy. I used to see this in stores a lot but not lately. I think you can still buy it at the Bob's restaurants, but there aren't any close to me anymore. Any suggestions?

  1. Doesn't Heinz make something like this? If not the local super, I'd think Bristol or Gelsons would have it.

      I found some online, and it's not the B&G stuff:

      Cains Sweet Tomato Hamburger Relish. My folks in CT turned me on to the brand to look for.

      1. I think Smart & Final has it.

            I usually don't like this kind of thing, but I've always felt the tomatoey relish that Pacific Dining Car serves with their steaks is very (if crudely) tasty, especially on the breakfast filet -- possibly because I'm usually there in the wee hours of the night. The relish goes well with steak, lyonnaise potatoes, eggs, and toast, and I'll bet it would also be fine on a hamburger with french fries.

            Pacific Dining Car
            1310 W 6th St, Los Angeles, CA 90017

            Pacific Dining Car
            2700 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90403

          2. They sell a version of it at HOWS market; I forget the brand.
