Review: Arby's - 'Shroom & Swiss

New to the southern California market and with limited availability regionally, Arby's is serving up a 'Shroom & Swiss sandwich featuring their trademark very-thin-sliced roast beef with roast seasoning, Swiss cheese, crispy fried onions, sliced mushrooms, and a savory spread on a toasted specialty roll.

The sandwich is currently being offered at my local Arby's for $3.59.

Where to start? My favorite part of the sandwich was the bun. It was substantial but soft, slighty chewy but toasty as well with a nice crust. A very nice bun!
Unfortunately, I didn't like much else about the sandwich. The sauce was okay, a creamy mustard-like sauce, but it added salt to a fairly salty sandwich and I would have rather just had Horsey Sauce.
The onions were soggy and my house isn't very far from Arby's. The Swiss cheese and mushrooms were light on flavor and the 'shroom were a little rubbery.
Honestly, I think I would rather just have the bun and the roast beef with some Horsey Sauce than all that other stuff. Did I mention I really liked the bun?

  1. Yea I don't get the whole fascination with mushrooms in a sandwich. That's really enough to make it special? Oh I forgot, they added Swiss cheese, amazing lol.

    If it was like 2 bucks or so I wouldn't even comment, but 3.50 seems a bit much for something this simple. Maybe it works for the mushroom and Swiss fans, but it just seems weird to me.

  2. I too, have tried this sandwich and was NOT impressed. Like the reviewer, I'd really rather just have the roast beef with horsey sauce!

  3. would be better if the mushrooms were chicken nuggets

  4. Now that would be a sandwich!

  5. This is sooo good! I love this very interesting flavor combo

  6. I honestly loved this sandwich and was disappointed that Arby's discontinued it.
