Arby's has announced that it will offer venison sandwiches at a limited number of restaurants this fall -- including two St. Cloud locations next week. The new sandwiches are being offered for a limited time in popular deer hunting states including Minnesota and Wisconsin.

In Minnesota the venison sandwiches will be available November 4th-6th at these locations:

  • 348 Lincoln Avenue SE, near Shopko on St. Cloud's east side.
  • 3275 First Street South, just off 33rd in St. Cloud near Walmart.
  • 1690 Park Place Boulevard in St. Louis Park.
  • 704 Highway 33 South in Cloquet.

The Venison Sandwich at Arby’s features a thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions topped with a juniper berry sauce on a toasted specialty roll. The venison is marinated in garlic, salt and pepper and then cooked for three hours to juicy, tender perfection. The juniper berry sauce is a Cabernet steak sauce infused with juniper berries, giving the already unique sandwich another signature twist.

I can't wait to try it. See you there next Friday (11/4).
