Arby’s is adding its first burger to the menu. The chain that usually has sandwiches with a variety of beef, pork, chicken, turkey and fish (during the holidays), Now there’s a wagyu beef burger.
The sandwich, known for its roast beef, did not offer the popular and first burger, since 1964 has decided to include an unlimited number of its menus, reported as Deluxe Wagyu Steakhouse Burger Meal.
Wagyu is a very mature beef. It has a unique flavor, texture and marbling. It is from Japanese cattle, it is derived from Asian cattle. Animals with a lot of fat in the muscles that give the characteristic “marbling” to the meat.
Arby’s Burger is made with 52% American Wagyu and 48% ground beef.
The meat is topped with American cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, red onions and a special burger sauce on a buttery, toasted brioche bun, according to Arby’s website.
On the menu are the Deluxe Wagyu Steakhouse Burger and the Bacon Ranch Wagyu Steakhouse Burger. The huge burgers can be ordered individually or as part of a combo meal.
Arby’s Deluxe Burgers are available at participating locations in the United States for a limited time, now through July 31. Prices start at $5.99, but may vary by location.
Arby said “there are a lot of bad burgers out there” and that’s why he created the Premium Wagyu Beef Burger.
“Instead of focusing on making millions of mediocre burgers, we’re working on quality meat that deserves to be made well,” Arby’s chief marketing officer Patrick Schwing said in a statement.
Arby’s Wagyu burgers are juicy and flavorful, especially the Bacon Ranch, according to USA Today’s Brett Molina test. Although Molina warns that it will not work for those who don’t like to load their burgers with sauces and toppings, he advises to order them without the toppings as “it’s the flow.”
