Sandwiches in Review: Arby’s Steakhouse Sub

June 7, 2010

Another of Arby’s Market Fresh offerings, the Steakhouse Sub is a variation on their usual roast beef sandwich.  In addition to the roast beef, the sub includes swiss cheese, crispy onion straws and a cracked peppercorn sauce, all toasted on a ciabatta roll.  I’m not exactly sure what makes it a steakhouse sub, what with it being roast beef and all, but that’s beside the point.

Yeah, "Roast Beefhouse" does sound a bit off...

The sub is actually pretty good overall.  As always, Arby’s roast beef is delicious, and the onion straws are an interesting choice.  The cracked peppercorn sauce wasn’t as “zesty” as I expected, but I felt that actually worked to the sandwich’s advantage, as it complemented the cheese well.  My main complaint was that the roll was closer to burned than toasted, which kind of took away from the experience.  All in all, the Steakhouse Sub was a worthwhile buy, not quite as good as their Philly Beef, but worth trying while it’s available.
