Arby's has a secret menu item, and it's a Meat Mountain

Arby's Meat Mountain

Mt. Everest -- or maybe that dude on Game of Thrones -- used to be the most impressive mountain around. But Arby's has been secretly serving a "mountain" of their own, and it makes all other peaks look like bunny hills.

The home of the roast beef sandwich has been offering an off-menu Meat Mountain, a towering display of every meat at Arby's, to customers in the know. According to The Washington Post, it actually started as a joke. The marketing team made a poster of all the meats on the menu to draw in some new business, but people thought it was a real sandwich and started asking for it. Arby's decided it would be happy to oblige these meatheads, only the item would stay off books, presumably to appease some cold cuts Don.

Interested in ordering this up? Here's what you'll get:

  • 2 chicken tenders
  • 1.5oz of roast turkey
  • 1.5oz of ham
  • 1.5oz of corned beef
  • 1.5oz of brisket
  • 1.5oz of Angus steak
  • 1.5oz of roast beef
  • 3 half-strips of bacon
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese
  • 1 slice of Swiss cheese

And we once foolishly thought a cheesesteak was the best sandwich ever. Arby's has yet to release any official portraits of this thing, but luckily some investigative journalists on Twitter have captured it in the wild.

It costs $10 to scale this monster. Fortunately, you can leave your grapple hooks at home, but you may want to have a St. Bernard with a brandy barrel on hand to revive you after you've reached the peak.
