Gone . . .

Another fast food restaurant has closed its only location in San Francisco!

Arby's is no longer with us!

Last year when the only Baja Fresh in The City closed I was very sad.  I was able to move on because there are plenty of other places to get mouth watering burritos, tacos, and salads.

But there really is no replacement for Arby's. 

Sure there is "Hot Sauce" from Taco Bell, but that is no Arby Sauce.

And I can get a burger from Burger King or McDonald's, but if I am craving thinly sliced roast beef on an onion roll with cheese sauce; no one has that.

And no one has those thick triangle tator tots known as Potato Cakes.  No one!

And finally McDonald's Apple Pie; though cheap, is no where near as sweet and delicious as a frosting drizzled Apple Turnover from Arby's.

Arby's - I lift up my Jamocha Shake in your honor!   It was always fun to ring the bell at your front door if I had good service.

  1. There's an Arby in South SF. It's probably about 10 minutes from your place. I've never been but now you've piqued my interest.

  2. The Sycamore, a bar on Mission near 17th st. (2 blocks from BART) makes a homemade version, but it costs $8. I like Arby's and was sad that they closed, but that was a cheap knockoff of the original roast beef sandwich from Massachusetts. The Sycamore has the real stuff.
