Getting my hands on Arby’s first-ever burger, the Wagyu Steakhouse Burger

Recently, Arby’s introduced their first ever burger, the Wagyu Steakhouse Burger. At the West street location in Wichita, they had two different variations: the burger or a version with bacon ranch. Wagyu has picked up in popularity in recent years and according to Arby’s, their burger is made with a blend of 52% American Wagyu and 48% ground beef.

I do occasionally enjoy some curly fries and a roast beef sandwich, so I figured it couldn’t hurt to try the latest limited-time addition to the Arby’s menu.

On my visit, I went with the Wagyu Steakhouse Burger and opted against the bacon ranch. It was roughly $7 for the burger itself, or essentially $10 as a meal.

The burger had a lot going on. At roughly 6.4 ounces, it came with American cheese, lettuce, red onion, pickles, and a special burger sauce all on a brioche bun. Let me tell you, they were very generous on the special burger sauce.

My personal preference is a bit more char on a burger, and the idea of any pink in a fast food item makes me a bit uneasy.

To be honest, I wasn’t that big a fan of the new burger. The texture was quite soft and chewier, and all I could taste was the sauce. It pretty much masked the flavor of the burger itself. On the bright side, it was certainly filling. For $7, I’ve had much better burgers from fast food joints around town.

Next time, I’m sticking with the roast beef sandwiches.
