Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich Review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Arby's. All opinions are 100% mine.

While I try to not eat fast food too often these days, Arby’s is one place I can’t help to indulge in still now and then. Roast beef is definitely one of my favorite sandwiches, and I’m a total sucker for the curly fries and occasional Arby’s Jamocha shake. So, I was delighted when I was asked to write up a Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich Review.

Arby's Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich Review

Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich features slow-smoked brisket (we’re talking at least 13 hours here, people) that is topped with smoked gouda cheese, crispy fried onions, bbq sauce and mayo all served on a toasted bakery style bun.

Overall, I really enjoyed eating Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich. There was plenty of meat that, to me, tasted very similar to the roast beef in their regular sandwiches. The meat on my sandwich was a little dry on the edges, but it was nice and moist in the center and still palatable with the addition of the bbq sauce (seemed to be the Arby’s sauce which I love) and mayo. I normally don’t like a lot of wet condiments on my sandwich, but both were at the perfect amount to add creaminess and flavor without making the whole sandwich wet.

I also loved the melted cheese on top of the roast beef which was pretty much my favorite part of the sandwich. There’s just something beautiful about melted gooey cheese on a hot sandwich. Yum! The crispy onions were a nice touch, but my sandwich didn’t have very many of them, so they kind of just melded into the cheese and went unnoticed. I personally don’t need a lot of crunch in my sandwiches, so this didn’t bother me much. The bun was pretty much perfect. Since it was a larger and thicker bun, it was able to hold up to all the ingredients, plus it was toasted. In my book, toasted bread only makes a sandwich better, mmm.

The sandwich is a bit expensive at $5.29 for just the sandwich here, but it is a tasty alternative for when you want something different from a plain old roast beef sandwich. I'd rate it a solid ⅘. Make sure to head over to Arby’s and try it out soon as this is a limited time item! Find an Arby’s near you.

I've had the brisket sandwich from Arby's Several times and they were delicious( New Albany Indiana store.) I haven't had it for a while so tonight. My husband and I didn't want to cook so we thought arby's. We haven't had it in a while. Went to grab a sandwich....... terrible terrible. I'm calling management tomorrow. A baloney sandwich would look better than what I have in this box right now. One piece of folded over fat nasty like 3 curly fries. It don't even look like onion rings. They are about a inch long ,tons of barbecue sauce on the bottom bun under the cheese. The cheese is on the bottom. Terrible customer service sucks nowadays, nobody wants to work. They want the check, but they don't want to work for it.

I don't normally like brisket, but Arby's Brisket is the best! Tried it the first time and loved it! The meat is super tender, flavorful, and better than homemade brisket. My husband and I will make it appoint to take advantage of this special before it's gone. The bread is fresh and soft and all ingredients compliments each other. The Apple turnover is a plus also, super fluffy and so much better than others. Thank you Arby's and more power!

I agree with Shari & I'm in MI. All the gristle & all the fat except mine wasn't piled high. I literally had 2 pieces of gristle & fat with a little bit of meat on it. Yuck is an understatement! It was simply gross & not worth $7.

Looks nothing like it does online, & didn't even look like it had a full slice of cheese on it. It was kinda tough too. Flavor wasnt bad on the tiny bit of meat I did have but all the gristle made up the entire slice. I just ate the bread & wish I had returned it but we ordered from grubhub. 😭

Maybe it's just the Arbys near me but I had the Smokehouse Brisket and it was horrible I mean horrible. It was piled high alright but it was 95% gristle fat. Very tough. I took the sandwich apart and it literally had an inch of fat on each side of a piece of meat in the center that was about 1/2 inch. It was disgusting. My husband wanted to take it back and I said no way. Tossed it in the trash. Not sure I will ever go back to this Arbys but I am sure I will never ever order this. Not even off a dollar menu. Yuck
