My lunch today.
One thing I'll give them: their condiment selection tops everyone except Chick-fil-A.
>if I ate fast food, I'd eat at arbys
Probably once, and then never again. The idea of roast beef sandwiches is great, but making them with such poor quality meat does not give a good result.
it doesn't taste anything like roast beef, which is why I guess so many people hate it. I used to live on the same block as an arbys; I lost ten pounds shortly after moving. I think you can gleen my opinion of their food from that.
The beef and cheddar is my favorite fast food sandwhich next to whataburger's patty melt.
I dont know what sauce they put on that shit, but it is amazing. My bf and i limit ourselves to arby's only once a month though cause those calories are pretty crazy
their cheese is an abomination and i get why people say the beef is terrible .. but there's not that many arby's around where i live and i sometimes get a craving for it where nothing else will do.. i was driving home the other day and the craving hit me but the one arby's in that town was closed and i just didn't bother eating
Beginning in the spring of 1864, around 9,000 Navajo men, women and children were forced to embark on a trek of over 300 miles (480 km) to Fort Sumner, New Mexico for internment at Bosque Redondo. The internment at Bosque Redondo was a failure for many reasons as the government failed to provide an adequate supply of water, wood, provisions, and livestock for 4,000–5,000 people. Large scale crop failure and disease were also endemic during this time, as well as raids by other tribes and civilians. In addition, a small group of Mescalero Apaches, long enemies of the Navajo, had been relocated to the area resulting in conflicts. In 1868, a treaty was negotiated between Navajo leaders and the Federal government allowing the surviving Navajo to return to a reservation on a portion of their former homeland. The Navajos were not provided with much protection that other enemies of the Navajos would swoop in and take Navajo women and children back to their camps and force them to work as slaves. While at Bosque Redondo the government did provide the Navajos with food or shelter and some Navajos froze during the winter because of poor shelters that they had to make on their own.
Anyone else's Arby's have a fixins bar? When I lived in Kansas City mine had a bar where you could pile on jalapenos, pickles, onions, banana peppers, etc as much as you liked. I could make a roast beef sandwich twice as thick just by adding those veggies and it tasted better too.
Yeah, I've heard from old people how they used to have big, real rounds of roast beef from which they'd hack off slices, slap them onto bread, and sell them to you for 70 cents or however much it was. Sometime around the '80s they switched to what most people know today.
Yes, they used to have that. I remember that in the mid 90's, too. 35 years old here.
Anyway, the slices werent transparent like rice paper. It was just more like real beef. I'm not sure what they did, and what kind of Frankensteinian experiments go on at Arby's hq, but it's just not very good anymore.
Same. 35 years old. Back in the early 90s the place was amazing and always styled with old cars and playing oldies music and they took pride in their food. I went a long time without eating there because I moved and then around 2013 ate at one and was like wtf is this green shiny slimy meat?!
It sucks. I wonder how they've gotten away with it from a profit standpoint. I guess people just dont know what good food tastes like anymore? No idea. But they are putting out garbage.
All I know is back in the day it kicked the crap out of McDonalds (personal opinion) and even Taco Bells cinnamon twist things were better back then. Now it's all processed stuff in everything and people keep eating it and the Government says some how it's all better for us now. I don't understand it at all.
I fucking hate those MBA fuck heads that A/B taste all the flavor out of food. Papa Johns used to be fucking amazing and way better than PIzza Hut. But over the years they've some how managed to have a pizza that is totally different than pizza but is exactly as mediocre.
Chipotle/Moes compared to taco bell and Five guys/Fuddruckers/whatever compared to McDonalds/Burger King you mean? May not be the best examples but yes they are which is why they keep coming out with all kinds of crazy things to try keeping up. Granted Chipotle may not be a good example due to their more recent news headlines. Also out west and in other areas, food trucks are putting a hurting on fast food establishments due to media and publication praising them as something new that is great and they cook everything right there. It is what it is. The innovator makes money and riches until the next innovator comes along but at what point does it end?
McDonald's will never go out of business. It's crap food. Everyone knows it's crap food. Everyone admits it's crap food but they still line up for it.
Every single day, I see a long line at McDonald's both in the morning and early evening. I suppose people just crave fat and salt and that's what they're familiar with - the golden arches.
>be 23; have millions in the bank
>eat at the finest restaurants and cooks super well
>be 27 oh shit stock market falls I lose everything
>sell my suits and ties and shoes and house and cars and live off it as long as I can while taking negative equity on all house and cars
>be 29 standing in line at McDonalds to get some protein with my budget just so I can eat for the day and not beans and rice for once
>your post is pathetic
>there is no global standard for who eats what and if you say there is, you are very obliterate to real society and are nothing but a kid or a kid in a mans body
Hey thanks for the inspo OP.
Decided to head on down to Arbys myself for lunch.
>large box of fries
>6 different condiments
The world would be a better place if they were.
But from what I see, it's 1400 calories in an hour.
Arby's is very location dependent I've found. As gay as it sounds, they have pretty good salads and a fat free italian if you're trying to be healthy on the road. Also, their gyros were actually pretty good.
I go there for hangover cures since it's so close and I end up getting the philly steak and cheese sandwich or whatever its called combo. Actually pretty fucking tasty and hits the spot just right when you're hurtin from the liquor.

>hit's the spot
>when you're hurtin
I've never seen a faggot string so many gay comments in one post.
Oh you Amerikuks.
Never cease to amaze me.
Then you complain how fat you are.
From what I've heard from former employees, it's grade D meat gelatin that is basically cooked in an industrial microwave. Comes out as a solid mass which is then sliced up and served as roast beef.
Whoa there fatty mcfatfuck fatass fucker lardtub boy holy shit.
