One TikToker who needed several pounds of roast beef in a pinch said he turned to his local Arby’s to get the job done.
In a video posted to TikTok, user Anthony (@to_ny49er) chronicles the experience of him and his girlfriend walking through the restaurant’s drive-thru. As of Thursday, his video had over 234,000 views.
“So my girlfriend’s mom is making French dip sandwiches today, and her dad wanted him to only want roast beef when it came from Arby’s,” says Anthony. “So they sent us to Arby’s. We’re just ordering five pounds of roast beef. No bread, no nothing, no sauce. Roast beef only.”
The camera then switches to a shot of his girlfriend driving the couple.
“Can I order five pounds of roast beef?” she asks an unseen drive-thru attendant.
The worker says something in response, and Anthony’s girlfriend laughs and says thank you.
“They delivered. They said they could do it,” Anthony later says. “They make 10 half pound sandwiches with no buns or anything. So we’ll see how that looks.”
A few moments later, an Arby’s employee comes to his car with bags of meat packed in fast food sandwich containers. Anthony says they ordered three full bags of meat.
Anthony and his girlfriend end the video by opening one of the containers – which is filled to the brim with the restaurant’s signature roast beef. The video doesn’t reveal how much the order cost them or which Arby location they visited.
However, a handful of commenters claimed they wanted to order something similar themselves.
“This is crazy genius,” read one comment. “I can’t do any more carbs.”
“I never thought you could do this,” wrote another viewer. “Arby’s roast beef is heavenly.”
“Wait, that’s such a good idea,” says another TikToker.
The Daily Dot contacted Anthony via TikTok comment.
