Forget your quarter-pounders and your Whoppers, the King of Fast-Food Meat isn't found under the Golden Arches and it doesn't wear a crown, it wears a cowboy hat. Arby's has long been the biggest meat dealer on the fast-food scene, with piles and piles of delicious roast beef on their sandwiches no burger can come close.
But have they finally gone too far?
While Roast Beef has always been a staple of the Arby's menu, putting mounds of the delicious meat on toasted buns, they've perfected the sandwich. It's so synonymous with the restaurant that most people think Arby's stands for R.Bs or Roast Beef. (It actually stands for the Raffel Brothers who started the chain.)
They make a lot of use of other meats too. Their chicken sandwiches are delightful, and then of course there's the bacon. Like most places in America Arby's is willing to put bacon on just about anything, and why not?
Arby's might have finally found that magical point when there's actually too much bacon on a sandwich. What do you think?
The New Bacon Monster On The Next Page!
Arby's has been getting a lot of press online lately because of a number of different things. They designed a bot to advertise their Pizza Sliders, and it really just makes fun of Domino's the whole time.
A picture of Patton Oswalt eating at Arby's after winning his Emmy also drew a lot of attention:
These things helped the Arby's new Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon Sandwich slip under the radar. Most bacon is sliced to be about 1/10th of an inch, but the new Arby's sandwich has bacon that's a hefty 1/4-inch thick.
Take a look:
A BLT will be around 770 calories, which actually isn't that bad for the entire brick of bacon you're eating. Loads of sodium and fat make it slightly less attractive for your heart though. The delicious bacon will also be available on the Half Pound Club and Turkey sandwiches.
