I just wish Arby's would get back to the Roast Beef & red Arby's sauce they had in the early 70's. That was a good sandwich. ... I can make my own brisket sandwich.
Indeed. In the mid-'60's we (my parents & I) used to drive 20 miles from New Wilmington, PA to Boardman, OH to patronize the very first Arby's. The 'menu' had 2 items: a $0.59 sandwich and a $0.49 Jamocha Shake. They also sold bags of chips. This was quite expensive then as $0.69 bought a three piece chicken dinner and a Coke at Red Barn and $0.61 got you 2 burgers, fries, and a shake from McD's. But, oh my, the beef, red sauce, and shake were absolutely and addictively delicious.
Today I had a 'single meat' Reuben and a medium Jamocha shake for $8.20. It was tasty, quick, yet (
" /> ) pricey. Had I had a bit more time I would have gotten a huge brisket sandwich and two sides here
for $0.70 more.
Arby's insists that 'people' like their 'roast beef product'
better than the real deal. I say 'B.S.', but the red sauce is still tasty (yet watered down) and their Jamocha shake is still quite a treat, though I suspect it is 'Better Living through Chemistry'
