Review: Arby's - Smokehouse Turkey Sandwich

Arby's Smokehouse Turkey Sandwich features sliced mesquite-smoked turkey, natural smoked cheddar cheese, crispy onions, and white BBQ sauce on a toasted specialty roll.

I paid $5.49 for one.

Surprisingly, it wasn't the turkey that carried the bulk of the sandwich's smokiness but rather the cheese, which was wonderfully melted with a strong smoky quality to go with a mild cheddar taste.

The turkey has a nice flavor though. It's also moist and tender, which was much better than the times I've tried their brisket. They didn't skimp either so the sandwich was plenty meaty. I also found it less salty and more flavorful than their roast turkey.

I'd never heard of white barbecue sauce, so I did a bit of research and apparently it's a mayo variant mixed with vinegar that enjoys some popularity in the South. It's not smoky nor sweet and tomato-y like your more standard barbecue sauces. Arby's version has a nice savory note and quite a bit of horseradish to it.

The crispy onions were a little sparse and not so crisp in the sandwich but offered a very enjoyable sweet onion note to the proceedings.

The bun was squishy soft and airy but solid.

Overall, Arby's Smokehouse Turkey Sandwich was really good. I could have used a little more onions but have no real complaints.
