Arby's finally putting a hamburger on its menu
Arby's is finally adding a burger to the menu for the first time in their 58-year history, using Wagyu beef for a new limited-edition Wagyu Steakhouse Burger.
While Arby's has sold plenty of premium Angus beef sandwiches, duck, venison, elk, and even a "carrot" made out of meat following its slogan "We have the meats," they've actually never offered the hamburger.
Arby's boasts that this new burger is "the highest-quality burger" the fast food market has ever seen, thanks to a combination of 52 percent American Wagyu beef and 48 percent regular ground beef.
The resulting 6.4-ounce patties, which is said to be 50 percent bigger than a McDonald's Quarter Pounder, is then cooked sous vide manner, leaving "mouthwatering marbling, rich flavor, and buttery tenderness."
Before being sandwiched between a toasted brioche bread, the Wagyu Steakhouse Burger is topped with American cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion, and a unique burger sauce. If that isn't enough, diners may also add bacon and ranch for a more distinct, decadent flavor, according to Arby's.
"Instead of focusing on making billions of mediocre burgers, we're taking a stance on high-quality meat that deserves to be cooked properly," stated Patrick Schwing, Arby's chief marketing officer.
The product would be available nationwide from May 23 to July 31, with prices starting at just $5.99, but may vary by location.
