Hunting season is about to start in many states, and Arby’s is celebrating by taking some of the work out of deer hunting and just putting venison sandwiches right on its menu. It’s a nice way to mark hunting season for people who don’t actually want to hunt.
According to USA Today, the sandwich in question is a thick-cut venison steak served topped with crispy fried onions and a sweet berry sauce. The whole thing is served on a toasted roll.
"Bringing venison to our menu also allows us to continue to set ourselves apart from the competition when it comes to proteins," Arby’s chief marketing officer Rob Lynch said. "You simply can’t find this at other restaurant chains."
The venison comes from free-range, farmed deer that eat only grass, so the meat will taste like venison from deer killed in the wild. The sandwiches will be served starting in November at 17 Arby’s locations in Tennessee, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
