Review: Arby's - Steakhouse Onion Rings

Arby's Steakhouse Onion Rings five to a box
Arby's new Steakhouse Onion Rings are battered, breaded, and deep-fried. They come five to an order in a box for $1.99 and are made-to-order (at least mine were).

Arby's Steakhouse Onion Rings replace their Onion Petals on the menu.. At $1.99, they're cheaper than other Arby's Sidekickers which run closer to $3.

I have to hand it to Arby's, the Steakhouse Onion Rings I bought were as good as a lot of sit-down places. They were crisp and crunchy, while retaining a solid onion flavor inside. The onions were fairly tender, but I did end up pulling one out of the breading while eating. The rings themselves were also a good size and were seasoned with just a sprinkle of salt.

Other than the salt, hey're fairly neutral as far as the breading goes. Great for dipping, but not as interesting on their own flavor-wise.

Bereft of onion because it pulled out when I took a bite.
I also noticed that the Steakhouse Onion Rings don't hold up too well over time, and started getting soggy before I finished them. It's a bit like fresh-not-frozen French fries in that manner. Still, I thought Arby's Steakhouse Onion Rings were surprisingly good and definitely comparable to those found at a steakhouse or other sit-down restaurants, especially if you like breaded onion rings (I prefer battered myself).

I should have asked for some Horsey Sauce to dip them though. That sounds mighty tasty!

    no good for blood pressure!!

  2. I don't eat at Arby's that often but I always liked their onion petals. I hate that they've chosen to replace them with the onion rings. Cheaper is right. If I wanted these I could go to Burger King.

  3. I tried these for the first time last night and they were really good. I thought they were the best I ever had, but I'm no onion ring connoisseur. I love the fact that the onions were tender and didn't pull out when you bit into them and I loved the breading and the saltiness and crispiness to them. They also didn't seem overly greasy to me as some onion rings can be.

  4. I would eat a book if you dipped it in Horsey sauce.

  5. I liked the onion rings but for the price I wish there was more than 5.
