Arby’s Will Offer Venison Sandwiches This Fall In 6 Deer-Hunting States

In its continuing quest to convince hungry consumers that it is the meat destination, Arby’s is adding a new protein to the menu in certain locations this fall: customers will be able to order venison meat sandwiches at participating restaurants in six states where deer hunting is popular.

Calling fall “Meats Season” for the millions of hunters in the U.S., Arby’s says the new offering is a thick-cut venison steak — marinated for three hours in garlic, salt, and pepper — topped with crispy onions and a juniper berry sauce on a toasted roll.

“Hunters hunt the meats, and we have the meats, so it makes sense for us to connect with them and offer a sandwich that they can’t get at any other restaurant chain,” said Rob Lynch, Chief Marketing Officer and Brand President of Arby’s in a statement. “We’re a brand that’s not afraid to take risks and while the Venison sandwich is probably the biggest stretch for us yet, it’s incredibly delicious and we can’t wait to get it in the hands of our guests.”

The new sandwich will make an appearance at 17 Arby’s locations in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Georgia. But there’s a pretty limited window of availability at each, so you’ll want to check the below list before you go:
