Unfortunately, there’s nothing too special to report back. The sandwich consists of sliced oven-roasted chicken, pepper bacon, swiss cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and something called “chicken addition sauce”. All crammed between a soft roll. The Arby’s ad claims it’s a toasted roll, but mine was not. Not sure if it would’ve changed my opinion of the sandwich at all. I was pretty disappointed with this new sandwich. It wasn’t bad, but it seems like a huge step back from Arby’s stellar line of Market Fresh Sandwiches. The Market Fresh menu of sandwiches at Arby’s is a real winner and it’s unfortunate that this newcomer will stay in it’s shadow. If this Roast Chicken Club made it into the Market Fresh family, it would benefit from better bread and a heftier weight all around. This sandwich alone is priced at $3.99 and it struggled to satiate. There just wasn’t enough food to be worth the price. The “chicken addition sauce” was zesty and the pepper bacon was crisp and tasty. These two ingredients provide the bulk of the flavor in this sandwich. The swiss cheese was barely noticeable.
While far from bad, the new Roast Chicken Club from Arby’s failed to make a great lasting impression with me. It’s a very average sandwich. Maybe the new Roastburger line has something better to offer. Stick with a great thing Arby’s, the Marketfresh family of sandwiches is hard to top.
- Pros– Tasty bacon. Pretty good zesty “chicken addition sauce”. Fresh ingredients. Plastic shell packaging.
- Cons– The mediocrity is loud and clear. Not very filling. Lackluster value. Swiss cheese is barely noticeble. Mess of shredded lettuce.
