Arby’s roast beef sandwich is the chain’s most popular menu item. Find out how many calories it has, and learn other important nutritional data such as carbs, sugar, and fat.
Although the Atlanta-based fast-food restaurant chain produces plenty of other delicious subs and sandwiches, the classic roast beef sandwich reigns supreme above all.
They also recommend drizzling it with their delicious Arby’s Sauce, or for an extra kick of flavor try it with their own zesty Horsey Sauce. But keep in mind that adding any kind of sauce will up your calorie count a bit.
The chain’s zesty Horsey Sauce will add about 60 calories to your meal. And one serving of Arby’s sauce contains about 15 calories, so add that to your total if you decide to smother your sandwich with the restaurant’s in-house made sauce.
Adding sauce boosts flavor, which makes the extra calories worth it, plus 15 to 60 calories really isn’t much. But please don’t take this as nutritional advice because it’s not.
