Review: Arby's - Bacon Cheddar Roastburger

Billed as Arby's answer to the common hamburger, the Roastburger is more or less like a hamburger except with seasoned thin-sliced roast beef instead of a hamburger patty. It still tastes like a sandwich though. I tried the Bacon Cheddar Roastburger. The seasoning gives the meat a bit more "oomph" but part of a hamburger's flavor comes from the coarse texture of the patty itself and roast beef can't replicate that. Also hamburgers don't tend to be that seasoned anyway; a lot of the flavor is plain old hamburger fat.
The Arby's Bacon Cheddar Roastburger makes for a nice sandwich though. It has a slice of cheddar cheese, peppered bacon (an upgrade from the thin slices of mini-bacon most fast food chains sport), crisp lettuce, onions, and a slice of fresh tomato; the usual stuff you find in a traditional hamburger... as well as a sandwich.
I don't know how much healthier eating a Arby's Roastburger is than eating a greasy hamburger though. Compared to say a Burger King Whopper, it has about roughly half the fat but almost twice the sodium. Choices, choices... It does taste better than a Whopper though, sandwich and all.


  1. mmm...that looks really good...and fattening

  2. Wow 1/2 the fat of a whopper who would have guessed that sandwich looks amazing to me and i cant wait to get my hands on it. As for the extra salt drink water it flushes salt.
