The temperature is starting to drop, the stores are overrun with pumpkins, the kids just had their fall festival at school and I’m already craving turkey! Instead of waiting another month for a big turkey dinner, hubby and I swung by Arby’s yesterday and tried out their new Grand Turkey Club sandwich.
We’ve always been big Arby’s fans because we really like the fact that they slice their own roast beef right there in the restaurant as they need it so it’s always fresh when you order a sandwich. Plus it’s easy to please the kids on a budget with their menu. I think their new sliced turkey idea is brilliant and frankly I don’t understand what took so long!
We both ordered the new Arby’s Grand Turkey Club combos with curly fries and large drinks. Although my sandwich didn’t look nearly as pretty as the one in the sign on the way in, I have to say that it was definitely “served hot” as advertised and it was delicious! Hubby ordered his the regular way and I asked for mine without mayonnaise and we both greatly enjoyed our dinner. The Grand Turkey Club sandwich comes with freshly sliced roast turkey, melted Swiss cheese, pepper bacon (yum!), leaf lettuce, tomato and mayo on a harvest wheat bun.
My cheese was perfectly melty (the technical term!), the lettuce and tomato were fresh and colorful, the wheat bun had just the right hint of sweet and the turkey was really surprisingly moist. Turkey is known for being on the dry side and although I prefer to buy turkey lunch meat for the house, we always have to either eat it fast or it tends to dry out. My meal was so large that I ended up taking a bit of my sandwich home and I was really impressed with how juicy the turkey still was when I warmed it up later.
Of course there are also other choices when it comes to Arby’s new fresh sliced turkey – you can try out the Turkey Classic or the Turkey ‘n Cheddar Classic in addition to the Grand Turkey Club. They all look delicious but I highly recommend the Grand Turkey Club sandwich that I tried because the addition of pepper bacon is the perfect touch. It has “craveability” and is sure to cure your family’s turkey cravings through the holiday season and beyond.
