Arby’s Is Here To Help You Troll Your Vegetarian Friends On Leap Day


The fact that Arby’s is delicious is not something that any reasonable human being needs to debate. It just is. But while their curly fries are unassailable reminders that good things do exist, vegetarians don’t have much else to eat at a restaurant that, as Mashable reminds us, is known for its “meatcraft.” But for one glorious day–February 29–even the most stalwart lacto-ovo vegetarians will have something to eat at the chain restaurant which boasts some of the best (fast food) roast beef in America.

The question is: Will they want to?

Here’s what’s being offered:

Diners will be able to choose from options like the Reuben Sandwich, the Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich and the Beef ‘n’ Cheddar classic sandwich that are all lacking their eponymous ingredient. Vegetables, condiments and cheese reign supreme as the featured sandwich-stuffers.

“We’re proud of our meats and haven’t been shy about promoting them, so we wanted to show vegetarians that with a little creativity, Arby’s can fit into their diet as well,” Arby’s told Mashable.

Of course, meat will still be available and Arby’s isn’t bringing their veggie sandwiches to stores for any longer than 24 hours, but the restaurant says that if the day is successful, they might bring it back four years from now when Leap Day comes about again (I’m thinking they could make a sequel to that Amy Adams movie and just set it at the restaurant?) so that diners can enjoy a grilled cheese with their curly fries once more.

Okay, real talk: These are just their regular items without meat. Which means no one in their right mind would order them. Here are some of the pictures that Arby’s sent Uproxx:

We get it, guys. You like meat.
