It was a fantastical piece of advertising — displaying all the meats available on the Arby’s menu — that inspired the legendary (and maybe still mythical) sandwich known as the Meat Mountain.
According to Christopher Fuller, Arby’s vice president of brand and corporate communications, it was simply a matter of listening to their consumers. Fuller told The Washington Post, “People started coming in and asking, ‘Can I have that?’”
Although the Meat Mountain will not make it to the official menu, an Arby’s employee will reportedly create one for you for just $10. Here’s the sandwich order, from the bottom up (not including bread):
2 chicken tenders
1.5 ounces of roast turkey
1.5 ounces of ham
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1.5 ounces of corned beef
1.5 ounces brisket
1.5 ounces of Angus steak
1 slice of Cheddar cheese
1.5 ounces roast beef
3 half-strips of bacon
Although the staff members at The Daily Meal have yet to climb Meat Mountain, the real deal looks something like this:
