The Classic Roast Beef sandwich is the hallmark of the Arby’s experience, featuring mouthwatering roast beef that is slow roasted for three hours in-store daily, then freshly sliced and piled high on a toasted sesame seed bun. For the signature Arby’s experience, smother the Classic Roast Beef with tangy Arby’s Sauce® or zesty Horsey Sauce®.
Some Arby’s anniversary fun facts:
- Boardman Ohio
- In addition to the Classic Roast Beef sandwich, potato cakes and Jamocha shakes are two other original menu items that remain among the most popular today
- The Raffel Brothers originally wanted to name the restaurant "Big Tex," but settled on Arby’s, which stands for R.B. (Raffel Brothers); to this day, many people still believe it stands for roast beef
- The neon cowboy hat has been an Arby’s icon since the chain launched in 1964
