What is Arby’s happy hour?
At Arby’s, our Happy Hour period is between 2:00 and 5:00 PM every single day we are open.
This portion of the day is considered the “Snack Rush.” During this time, the following items are all $1, dropping from their original price points:
All 8 of our Sliders, including Roast Beef, Jalapeño Roast Beef, Ham, Turkey, Chicken, Buffalo Chicken, Corned Beef, and Pizza.
- Small Curly Fries
- Potato Cakes (a 2-piece)
- Small Soft Drinks (we have Coca-Cola products at my location)
- Small Unsweetened Ice Tea (we only have unsweetened at my location)
- Snack-Size Hand-Crafted Shakes, being 12 ounces and containing no whipped cream.
- The range of flavors is the following: Ultimate Chocolate, Vanilla, Jamoca (a coffee and chocolate-esque fusion), as well as our current specialty: Orange Cream.
- Both of our Cookies, being Salted Caramel and Triple Chocolate.
Some customers believe our Cherry and Apple Turnovers should be included in this hourly promotion; however, they honestly are not.
I have heard rumors about the 4-piece Mozzarella Sticks joining the Happy Hour menu, but this has not taken effect at my location.
All participating locations may have slightly different policies, too; I’m not trying to say that this is the absolute standard by which all locations must abide.
I do believe, though, that is an accurate guideline.
Thanks for the request to answer! It’s my 17th birthday today, but this question was worth my time.
In Tennessee, the hours are 2 pm-5 pm. The items available may vary depending on test markets. Some Arby’s have another happy hour from 9 pm-close.
Most Arby’s have small drinks, snack-size shakes, small curly fries and potato cakes, cookies and sliders for $1.00 during the happy hours.
What is Arby’s happy hour?
I don’t know if it still exists, maybe at corporate stores but I know most of them stopped “happy hour” a couple of years ago.
It used to be any value sized item (curly fries, soda, shake) and the sliders which are quite small were all only $1 from 2–5.
We discontinued it because the company lost money from it.
Do you eat at Arby’s?
I see it as a kind of treat for some reason. The value is the same as other joints, and it just never tastes as old and nasty as, say, Burger King or McDonald’s.
I like the traditional roast beef sandwiches, the cheddar thing, and the French Dip.
Any and all with Potato Cakes. And all the sandwiches smothered in either Arby Sauce or their Horsey Sauce.
It’s really about my favorite fast-food joint, so why don’t I go more often?
I’ve no clue. Maybe I thought it cost a lot, but it doesn’t, not compared to the no-longer cheap meals at the other joints.
It’s all bland, of course, but where else can you get anything even resembling “French Dip?”
It’s pretty good quality food but is higher on the fat and sodium scale.
I love their menu, but it’s also a bit of a no-no for my body and heart.
Barring that, I will occasionally have a single or double beef sandwich (hold the cheese) with horsey sauce.
You’d get a coupon in the mail – five roast beef sandwiches for $5. I liked them too. I liked the potato pancakes.
But… I got older. And my waistline got bigger. So I began to cut out fast food altogether.
Arby’s was one of the fast-food places that I turned my back on.
Not that anything was wrong with it – I just decided I needed to eat healthier.
Arby’s is just kind of different.
Where does Arby’s get its food?
I’m assuming you mean the corporation and not specific stores? I used to manage an Arby’s at night and I used to help with the Truck orders.
They always came on fridge/freezer trucks with separate sections of the truck, so that one side was just cold for the fridge and then freezer section for the frozen.
That way everything stays fresh. Believe it or not, Arby’s get a lot of their produce from Farms. The meat as well, it’s all fresh.
Literally nothing is frozen except the buns (which have to be thawed in a very specific process to ensure it stays fresh after thawing on hanging racks) and the turnovers and cookies. (As well as the fries and some of the extra sides, those are frozen.
Like the chicken tenders and Motz sticks.) So you can eat the meat with no worry about if it’s fresh or not because trust me, it is!
It’s why Arby’s is so much more expensive than most fast food places.
I may not have liked working for them, but their products were legit. =)
Is the food at Arby’s good?
I consider Arby’s roast beef sandwiches to be delicious, provided they slice the meat thinly enough.
Sometimes the slicer is set thicker, perhaps to speed production, which results in substantially less satisfying roast beef sandwiches.
Their fries (both normal and curly), as well as their potato cakes, are consistently excellent.
I remember first encountering Arby’s in Urbana, Il in the 1960s.
It was like a deli in that they sliced the beef fresh right in front of you.
There is greater variation in how Arby maintains these standards.
Some areas good as the original and some it is all sitting there pre-made.
The milkshakes are not so good.
What items should I avoid at Arby’s?
How could you ever avoid Arby’s? Arby’s is awesome!
But as a former employee, I figure I should give some insight to make your experience less scary.
Most restaurants are pretty good at keeping up with food safety standards.
However, that doesn’t always mean that the food hasn’t been contaminated, or that it’s old.
In some restaurants, it’s not uncommon that you might get fries that are over an hour old, or chicken tenders for about the same amount of time.
Never in my short time at Arby’s did I see any significant health code violations, but there are some things to keep in mind:
The fryers that are used for curly fries are the same fryer they use for everything else. Chicken Patties, Tenders, Potato Cakes, Mozzarella sticks, etc, are all cooked in the same oil.
Even the bacon is sometimes cooked in those fryers, which is kind of gross if you think about it (fat cooking in fat, ew).
If you’re a sensitive vegetarian or eat kosher/halal, I wouldn’t recommend eating the fries unless you know for sure that they were cooked separately. Otherwise, enjoy with caution.
Most restaurants are typically required to serve or throw out anything that we cook in the fryer after 15 minutes.
Only rarely will items be served to customers that sit under those heating trays for a lot longer, typically when it’s slow.
If you’re unsure, you can always ask for a fresh batch of fries to be made.
Better yet, wait until there’s a lunch or dinner rush because everything will be coming off the line fresh if they’re busier.
It will take longer to get your order out, but those fries are guaranteed fresh.
Healthy Snacks for Teens
Salad Dressing (and pretty much anything with Mayonnaise) is pretty much just pure fat, so you’re better off eating your salad plain if you want to eat healthily.
I’d bet that it’s healthier to eat a salad with roast beef on it as oppose to one smothered in ranch.
Plus with the outbreak of E. coli in romaine lettuce, I doubt everyone would want a salad these days.
Remember, you have an immune system! Even if you’re food came into contact with germs, you’re not going to die by simply eating it once.
As for the worst thing you could probably eat, practically any of the market-fresh sandwiches are pretty bad choices since they have a large amount of mayo, along with sandwiches such as the Load Italian.
Personally I would also avoid the notorious Meat Mountain because while it is a huge mountain to conquer, it packs a lot of calories and doesn’t really taste that good either:
This is one I got for my birthday, and oh hell it was hard getting this down my throat (no pun intended).
