Made with a blend of venison, elk, and ground beef, Arby’s Big Game Burger showcases its meat expertise in the most adventurous way

Arby’s is taking guests’ taste buds to new heights with a unique and flavorful burger unlike any other in the QSR market: the Big Game Burger. Available in limited quantities and only for a limited time, fans nationwide can try it for themselves and experience Arby’s innovative twist on the traditional burger beginning Sept. 12.

An evolution of the venison sandwich that Arby’s introduced in 2017, the Big Game Burger further showcases Arby’s meat expertise and wholehearted dedication to offering products that are authentic and unique to the brand. A blend of venison, elk, and ground beef is topped with crispy onions, tangy pickles, and melty Swiss cheese. The burger is finished with a dark cherry steak sauce, a popular flavor pairing with venison, that elevates the entire burger and packs delicious flavor into every bite.

And, on Tuesday, Sept. 12, Arby’s is inviting a few lucky fans to adventure to the most remote Arby’s in the world with the first-ever Arby’s Hike-Thru on The Big Game Burger Trail. For one day only in the Colorado Rockies, the unique experience allows fans to try the bold new burger that deserves to be enjoyed in the great outdoors. The Hike-Thru will be open on a first-come, first-serve basis to select outdoor enthusiasts who will be guided along a scenic hike through an exclusive trail in the Colorado wilderness.
