23 Best Arby’s Menu Items to Order

Arby’s is one of the most popular sandwich chains with a variety of menu items to satisfy every tastebud.

While Arby’s is best known for its slow-roasted roast beef, Arby’s menu has expanded over the years from the classic roast beef sandwiches to desserts to sides like the famous curly fries and more.

With so many delicious options to choose from, it can be difficult to decide what to order at Arby’s. That’s where we come in!

In this article, we’ve rounded up the best items to order on Arby’s menu based on their taste and overall satisfaction.

23. Vanilla Shake

First up, we have Arby’s Vanilla Shake. If you are craving a simple yet tasty milkshake on a hot day, this is for you.

There isn’t much to Arby’s vanilla shake other than their vanilla ice cream mixture and whipped cream.

This shake is plain compared to other milkshake options on the menu, but it’s perfect for those who are die-hard fans of vanilla.

To add more flavor, you can modify the shake to have a chocolate drizzle over the whipped cream.

The vanilla shake comes in four sizes: snack, small, medium, and large. Unlike the other sizes, the snack size doesn’t come with whipped cream.

The vanilla shake is certainly the healthier shake option.

A medium-sized milkshake has 690 calories, 95 grams of sugar, and 103 grams of carbs.

22. Buffalo Chicken Slider

In 2015, Arby’s added sliders to its menu, and all these items quickly became a staple.

The Buffalo Chicken Slider is one of five sliders available at Arby’s and doesn’t disappoint.

This slider features one piece of chicken, smothered in buffalo sauce, and dressed with Arby’s parmesan peppercorn ranch. The slider bun is also soft!

The buffalo sauce is already spicy, but you can modify your slider to have diced jalapeños if you want more of a kick.

Though it’s a small sandwich, the chicken tender is thick and juicy.

The peppercorn ranch is also a refreshing reprieve from the spicy buffalo sauce.

One buffalo chicken slider has 300 calories, 31 grams of carbs, and 940 milligrams of sodium.

21. Roast Turkey Slider

Next on our list, we have another slider: the Roast Turkey Slider.

The roast turkey slider includes Arby’s thinly sliced roast turkey and Swiss cheese.

This bite-sized turkey sandwich is convenient if you want something quick and on-the-go.

However, no sauce comes on the sandwich itself, so it tastes somewhat dry.

If you want extra flavor, you can add diced jalapeños or one of their sauce packets.

We recommend having the Arby’s sauce with it—it’s flavorful and goes well with the turkey and Swiss.

This slider has the least calories out of all slider options, with only 180 calories per sandwich.

It also has 660 milligrams of sodium and 21 grams of carbs.

20. Roast Turkey & Swiss Sandwich

Arby’s Roast Turkey & Swiss Sandwich is simple, but the spicy brown mustard makes the sandwich.

It comes with turkey, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, mayonnaise, spicy brown mustard, and honey wheat bread.

If you’d rather have a healthier option, Arby’s also serves their roast turkey and Swiss in a warmed artisan wrap.

The sandwich is a great option to satisfy your lunch craving. The turkey is sliced thin, and the spicy brown mustard gives it a slight kick.

You can choose to double the meat or add bacon to the sandwich if you want some extra meat.

You can also swap the cheese with sharp cheddar.

The roast turkey and Swiss is one of the healthiest sandwiches on Arby’s Market Fresh menu.

It has 720 calories, 1930 milligrams of sodium, and 79 grams of carbs.

19. Buffalo Crispy Chicken Sandwich

If the bite-sized buffalo chicken slider isn’t enough, you should upgrade to the Buffalo Crispy Chicken sandwich.

This sandwich features crispy buttermilk chicken filet in buffalo sauce, parmesan peppercorn ranch, and shredded lettuce.

The bun is also toasted, top and bottom, which is a huge plus.

In addition, you can choose to add more toppings, like bacon, tomatoes, diced jalapeños, and red onions.

Another delicious feature of this sandwich is the peppercorn ranch. It’s spread not only on top of the sandwich but also on the bottom bun.

Though the chicken is smothered in buffalo sauce, it’s not as heavy in calories as other sandwiches.

It has 500 calories, 1860 milligrams of sodium, and 49 grams of carbs.

18. Premium Chicken Nuggets

If a fast-food chain doesn’t have chicken nuggets, is it even a fast-food chain? Arby’s Premium Chicken Nuggets are little thick pieces of chicken that are juicy and tender.

The chicken nuggets come in three sizes: 4 pc, 6pc, and 9pc. The 9pc is also included in Arby’s 2 for $7 Everyday Value deal.

Arby’s chicken nuggets do not disappoint, and they are also featured in the buffalo chicken wrap.

In addition, they come with a variety of Arby’s sauces for your dipping pleasure, including BBQ, buffalo, ranch, and honey mustard.

The 9pc nugget has 470 calories, 1370 milligrams of sodium, and 28 grams of carbs.

17. Chicken Slider

Next, we have another slider on our list—the Arby’s Chicken Slider. This quick, bite-size sandwich includes one piece of chicken tender and Swiss.

The chicken slider doesn’t come with any sauce, but the Arby’s sauce goes well with it.

The breading on the chicken is also flavorful with the seasoning.

A little spice also wouldn’t hurt the sandwich. To add it, you would need to modify the sandwich to have diced jalapeños on top.

The chicken slider has 270 calories per sandwich, 700 milligrams of sodium, and 30 grams of carbs.

16. Roast Turkey Bacon & Ranch Sandwich

If you are craving a sandwich packed with protein, look no further than the Roast Turkey Bacon & Ranch Sandwich.

This sandwich has a lot of flavors. It includes turkey, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, red onions, parmesan peppercorn ranch, mild natural cheddar, and honey wheat bread.

You can even replace the cheddar with Swiss cheese.

Those who want their sandwich with more meat can also double the turkey.

This sandwich has a wrap version as well.

It has a lot of salt, but it is great for ranch lovers. The sandwich has 810 calories, 2420 milligrams of sodium, and 79 grams of carbs.

15. Chocolate Shake

Are you a chocolate lover? Do you like rich, creamy milkshakes? If so, Arby’s Chocolate Shake was made for you.

Not only does it have Arby’s chocolate shake mixture, but it also has whipped topping and is drizzled with chocolate.

The shake is made with real Ghirardelli chocolate, which tastes decadent.

Because of the amount of chocolate, however, the shake is extremely rich—so we only recommend it to those who love chocolate and a lot of it.

Like Arby’s other shakes, it comes in four sizes: snack, small, medium, and large.

The snack size, unfortunately, doesn’t have the whipped topping.

A medium-sized chocolate shake has 830 calories, 118 grams of sugar, and 134 grams of carbs.

14. Roast Beef Gyro

At first, gyros were only available for a limited time at Arby’s. But, since 2014, they have become a favorite among the fans and landed themselves a permanent place on Arby’s menu.

One fan favorite is the Roast Beef Gyro.

The roast beef gyro takes Arby’s famous roast beef and puts it in a warm, toasted pita.

It also has shredded lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tzatziki sauce, and Greek seasonings.

Who knew roast beef would go so well with Mediterranean flavors?

While this gyro doesn’t have the traditional gyro meat, it’s still a fun take on the Greek sandwich.

The roast beef gyro has several modifications—you can have additional toppings, like diced jalapeños, big-eye Swiss cheese, sharp cheddar, bacon, and spicy chili sauce.

If you feel there isn’t enough beef, you can also double it.

This gyro has 540 calories, 1300 milligrams of sodium, and 48 grams of carbs.

13. Classic Crispy Chicken Sandwich

The next item on our list is Arby’s take on a chicken sandwich. Their Classic Crispy Chicken Sandwich may seem simple, but it’s juicy, tender, and packed with flavor.

This sandwich comes with a well-seasoned, crispy chicken filet, shredded lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise between two toasted buns.

Of course, you can modify the sandwich with other toppings, such as bacon, sharp cheddar, Swiss cheese, diced jalapeños, and even crispy onion strings.

The chicken sandwich is a classic on most fast-food menus, but Arby’s allows you to make it your own with the available modifications, which makes it unique.

One crispy chicken sandwich has 510 calories, 1230 milligrams of sodium, and 48 grams of carbs.

12. Mozzarella Sticks

Who doesn’t love mozzarella sticks? Arby’s Mozzarella Sticks are crispy, and the mozzarella cheese stretches nicely.

With marinara sauce for dipping, the mozzarella sticks are a great side to any of Arby’s meals on the menu.

The mozzarella sticks come in two sizes: 4 pc and 6 pc.

While the breading on the mozzarella sticks is seasoned well, the marinara sauce is also flavorful.

Unfortunately, there aren’t any modifications available for this side, but you can ask for any of Arby’s sauce packets with them.

The 6 pc mozzarella sticks have 440 calories, 1410 milligrams of sodium, and 37 grams of carbs.

11. Cherry Turnover

Another one of our favorite desserts at Arby’s is their take on the classic cherry turnover.

Arby’s Cherry Turnover is a flaky pastry with cherry filling inside, drizzled with vanilla icing on top.

It’s a fruity dessert, which makes it a great option when you want a sweet ending after your meal.

You can’t really go wrong with this pastry—it’s crisp and flaky.

There is only one size for this dessert, and no modifications are available.

One cherry turnover has 390 calories, 65 grams of carbs, and 40 grams of sugar.

10. Classic Roast Beef Sandwich

Roast beef is what made Arby’s famous, so we couldn’t exclude their Classic Roast Beef sandwich from our list.

The classic roast beef sandwich features layers of thinly sliced roast beef on a sesame-seeded bun.

It is simple, but you can easily make this simple sandwich your own with the available modifications.

If you want more roast beef, you can double it or get a half pound on the sandwich.

You can also add any of the veggies, bacon, and cheese.

We recommend getting a side of Arby’s Horsey sauce with this classic sandwich.

The Horsey sauce is a little spicy, but this extra kick adds some zest.

The classic roast beef sandwich isn’t heavy in calories, either.

In its standard size, one sandwich has 360 calories, 970 milligrams of sodium, and 37 grams of carbs.

9. Jalapeno Bites

Next up is another one of Arby’s popular sides—the Jalapeño Bites.

Arby’s jalapeño bites are battered jalapeño halves filled with cream cheese. These also come with a sweet Bronco Berry Sauce.

These jalapeño bites are packed with heat, but the cream cheese and Arby’s Bronco Berry Sauce, which is their take on a sweet and sour sauce, cool them off.

There aren’t any modifications available for the jalapeño bites; however, you can purchase them in two sizes: 5 pc and 8 pc.

The 8 pc jalapeño bites have 470 calories, 1060 milligrams of sodium, and 50 grams of carbs.

8. Classic Roast Beef N’ Cheddar

If Arby’s Classic Roast Beef doesn’t tease your taste buds enough, you should upgrade to the Classic Roast Beef N’ Cheddar.

This is Arby’s classic roast beef but enhanced. This sandwich includes roast beef, cheddar sauce, red ranch, and a warmed onion roll.

Just like the classic roast beef, you can get it with double beef or a half-pound.

You can also get the sandwich with various toppings, like bacon, cheese, and veggies.

This sandwich does have more calories than the classic roast beef.

One roast beef n’ cheddar sandwich contains 450 calories, 1280 milligrams of sodium, and 45 grams of carbs.

7. Salted Caramel & Chocolate Cookie

Salted caramel and chocolate go perfectly together, so we have the Arby’s Salted Caramel & Chocolate Cookie next on our list.

This cookie is made with semi-sweet dark chocolate and caramel chucks. And yes, it is salted. You can even see the flakes of salt on top of the cookie.

Salty and sweet is a classic combo—where can you go wrong?

Admittedly, the cookie is a little hard, but if you warm it up, the chocolate chunks melt in your mouth.

The cookie only comes in one size and cannot be modified.

The salted caramel and chocolate cookie has 430 calories, 33 grams of sugar, and 63 grams of carbs.

6. Classic French Dip & Swiss

You may see French dips in numerous diners across the country, but Arby’s has a convenient French dip option that tastes delicious.

The Classic French Dip & Swiss has Arby’s thin slices of roast beef and Swiss cheese on a sub roll with a side of au jus.

Arby’s au jus is a light gravy made from beef stock, so it is a great side to dip your sandwich in.

This dipping sauce makes the sandwich moist and gives it a little more flavor.

You can modify the sandwich to have double the meat and add other toppings, such as bacon, sharp cheddar, lettuce, red onions, tomatoes, crispy onion strings, and diced jalapeños.

The only downside is that this sandwich has a high sodium level from that delicious au jus.

Without the modifications, the French Dip and Swiss has 540 calories, 51 grams of carbs, and 2550 milligrams of sodium.

5. Chicken Bacon & Swiss Sandwich

Arby’s Chicken Bacon & Swiss Sandwich is one that will leave your mouth watering.

It features a fried chicken breast, bacon, Swiss cheese, shredded lettuce, and honey mustard between a toasted bun.

This sandwich is packed with different flavors that go well together.

The honey mustard is spread across the top and bottom of the chicken, so you taste it in every bite.

You can also request extra bacon and toppings, like Arby’s cheddar sauce, a slice of sharp cheddar cheese, red onions, diced jalapeños, and fried onion strings.

This sandwich is an excellent choice when you are craving a flavorful and crispy chicken sandwich.

It has 610 calories, 1510 milligrams of sodium, and 51 grams of carbs.

4. Greek Gyro

If you are craving a traditional gyro without having to fly to Greece, Arby’s Greek Gyro is a must-try.

The Greek gyro has all the typical ingredients of a gyro you can get at a Greek restaurant: gyro meat, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tzatziki sauce, and Greek seasonings in a toasted pita.

Even the gyro meat is made with a combination of beef and lamb!

This is an excellent option for those who want a convenient gyro option.

The Greek seasonings include a mixture of oregano, garlic, and onion powder, which goes well with the tzatziki sauce.

You can have additional toppings, like diced jalapeños, bacon, big-eye Swiss, sharp cheddar, and spicy chili sauce. You can also double the meat.

The Greek gyro has the most calories out of all Arby’s gyros, with 700 calories, 1370 milligrams of sodium, and 55 grams of carbs.

3. Corned Beef Reuben

Next, we have Arby’s Corned Beef Reuben. Arby’s Reuben has thinly sliced corned beef, big-eye Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing between two slices of marble rye bread.

Thousand Island dressing isn’t the traditional topping for a Reuben, but it doesn’t mean that this sandwich isn’t tasty.

The dressing is tangy and pairs perfectly with the crunchy sauerkraut.

Like other Arby’s sandwiches, you can modify the Reuben to include the following toppings: bacon, sharp cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, and diced jalapeños.

The only downside about this sandwich is the amount of sodium it contains. The high sodium content is due to the corned beef.

It has 680 calories, 2420 milligrams of sodium, and 62 grams of carbs.

2. Jamocha Milkshake

It’s safe to say that chocolate and coffee are a match made in heaven, so one of Arby’s most popular items on the menu is the Jamocha Milkshake.

The Jamocha milkshake is a favorite among many. It has Arby’s milkshake mixture, whipped cream topping, and a drizzle of chocolate.

Like all Arby’s desserts with chocolate, this is also made with real Ghirardelli chocolate.

You can modify the milkshake to remove whipped topping or chocolate drizzle.

Though there is coffee in the drink, there isn’t much caffeine. In fact, it has only 0.72 milligrams of caffeine per fl. oz.

The Jamocha milkshake comes in four sizes: snack, small, medium, and large.

A medium milkshake has 830 calories, 116 grams of sugar, and 138 grams of carbs.

1. Curly Fries

Finally, we’re at our top Arby’s menu item: the famous Curly Fries!

This is not only the best side but the best item on Arby’s menu.

These crispy fries are seasoned to perfection and an excellent choice to finish any of Arby’s meals.

Only a few fast-food chains offer curly fries on their menu, so these fries make Arby’s stand out among the rest.

There aren’t any modifications available for these fries, but you can have them with any of Arby’s sauces and cheese sauce.

We highly recommend getting the cheese sauce on the side!

The curly fries come in four sizes: snack, small, medium, and large.

In terms of nutrition, these aren’t the healthiest option, but they are delicious.  

The medium-sized curly fries have 550 calories, 1250 milligrams of sodium, and 65 grams of carbs.


Whether you are craving a savory roast beef sandwich or a refreshing milkshake, Arby’s has a variety of menu items to satisfy every tastebud.

In addition, Arby’s comes out with menu items that are only available for a limited time, like their Orange Cream Milkshake and the Prime Rib Cheesesteak.
