WATCH: Arby’s Beloved Venison Sandwich Is Going National!
No camo required.
Carnivores rejoice! Thanks to Arby's, you no longer need to be a hunter to enjoy the taste of deer. The Atlanta-based fast food chain announced that its Venison Sandwich is galloping back into stores, and this time it's headed to all 3,300 restaurants nationwide—no camo required.
Arby's limited-time Venison Sandwich debuted last year in just 17 locations in hunting-friendly states, including Wisconsin, Tennessee and rural Pennsylvania. People there loved the nonconventional sandwich so much, that this year the restaurant decided to take the cult favorite national.
"The positive response to our limited offering of venison last year was so widespread and passionate that we knew we had to find a way to offer it nationwide," Jim Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer of Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc., said in a statement. "On October 21, we want hunters and meat enthusiasts across the country to visit their local Arby's and enjoy this amazing sandwich. It's a perfect example of the level of innovation coming from our teams and our commitment to creating experiences that guests can only get at Arby's."
This sandwich features a thick-cut venison steak marinated in garlic, salt, and pepper and is cooked sous-vide for three hours. It's topped with crispy onions and a cabernet steak sauce infused with juniper berries, and served on a toasted star top bun. Drool.
Mark your calendars now meat lovers, because the Venison Sandwich will only be available while supplies last—and they're expected to go fast.
