Famously known for using the phrase “We have the meats” in its advertisements, Arby’s restaurants will be adding another meat to its menu this weekend: venison.
For one day only, Arby’s is bringing back its limited-edition venison sandwich, to be available in Rogers County at the Arby’s in Claremore.
According to the fast-food chain’s website, when the sandwich was introduced in 2016, it was only available at restaurants in five southern states, but due to the “overwhelming response,” Arby’s across the country will be making available the venison steak sandwiches this Saturday.
“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,” said Jim Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. “This Saturday (Oct. 21), we want hunters and meat enthusiasts across the country to visit their local Arby’s and enjoy this amazing sandwich.”
Claremore Arby’s Assistant Manager George Jones said he’s looking forward to the local response to the sandwich.
“I know last year, the sandwich went fast — it sold out very shortly after it went on sale, and like other Arby’s, we’re only going to have limited quantities, so I would recommend anyone wanting one to get here early,” Jones said. “This (sandwich) is a great example of the kind of innovation coming from our teams and the commitment to creating experiences that guests can only get at Arby’s.”
According to the company’s website, Arby’s Venison Sandwich will feature a “thick-cut venison steak cooked for three hours. It is served with crispy onions and a juniper berry sauce on a toaster roll.”
As to the sandwich’s taste, Jones said he’s not sample one himself, but expected persons “who like venison should be pleased.”
“All I’ll say is that if you want one, you need to get here (Arby’s) early because I’m sure all the restaurants will be selling out fast,” he said.
Arby’s will also serve an elk sandwich at three restaurants in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana, according to the website.
