Arby's?

So, one just opened in my little town in Montana, and I'm just wondering if there's anything worth eating there (without actually having to try everything, which I'm fairly sure I don't want to do).

    I'm sure the meat is over processed and "injected" with who knows what, but I really enjoy the big roast beef sandwich (whatever name it has this year). They apparently have a whole bunch of other things, but all i ever go for is the roast beef sandwich. Sure is a good alternative to a burger.

      Yep, I agree. Its "fast food' in its truest American sense. Too much salt, too much fat, etc. But, within that category, I find their sandwiches generally fairly tasty and the "potato cakes" pretty darned good. I love the jamocha shake.

      Its not always pretty lol, but very informative.

      Personally, I prefer their crispy chicken sandwiches to their roast beef. The beef always tastes kind of funky to me. The crispy chicken is pretty meaty and not that greasy for fast food chicken, and they have a variety of toppings. Of course, no fried chicken is healthy, but it can be tasty!

        Regardless, I love 'em. Plain ones or Beef N' Cheddar. The Curly Fries can be a bit too spicy, but YMMV

        They have 5 sandwich for $5.99 deals sometimes. Pig out!

          We enjoy the chicken salad sandwiches. I personally like the beef and cheddar with a side of tater cakes. Mix some arby sauce and horsey sauce for dip.

            And, regardless, you MUST try the "horsey sauce" ...

              Horsey sauce rocks!!! I always liked their roast beef, but agree that it tastes processed. The chicken sandwiches are awesome, though. Love the curly fries, and the onion petals!

                another horsey sauce vote! ( maybe I just think the name is cute - not so much the taste )

                  I've heard that their salads are good.

                    I haven't had any yet, but since you wrote that I checked out the menu online and they look like they might be pretty good (interesting ingredient combinations for a fast food "sandwich" joint. The nutritional profiles are pretty good for them, too if you're careful with the dressing.
