Review: Arby's - Arbynator

Arby's Arbynator features the chain's signature thin-sliced roast beef, curly fries, cheddar sauce, Arby's sauce, and Horsey sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun.

I paid $4.39 for the Classic version (there's also Double and Half Pound versions).

They basically took a regular Roast Beef Sandwich and added fries, cheddar sauce, Arby's sauce, and Horsey sauce to make the Arbynator. You can also think of it as a Beef 'N Cheddar with fries and Horsey sauce added (and minus the onion roll).

The roast beef was plentiful, moist, and tender. It has always reminds me of paper-thin sliced lunch meat however.

The three sauces made for somewhat messy eating as they dripped out the sides. They did manage to balance each other quite well with a distinctive note of horseradish from the Horsey sauce, some  tanginess and sweetness from the Arby's sauce, and a creamy base from the cheddar cheese sauce.

The seasoned curly fries contributed an enjoyable crunch and extra bit of flavor, while the bun was soft but durable.


Overall, Arby's Arbynator contained a little bit of everything that makes Arby's... Arby's. I liked the added crunch and flavor of the fries but am not sold on the combination of Arby's sauce and Horsey sauce. The combination of the two wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. I would prefer to have one or the other rather than both in the same sandwich.
