NEWS: Arby’s Fajita Flatbread Melts Have Me Thinking Taco Bell

Arby’s, the fast food restaurant you probably haven’t been to in a while, recently released their new Fajita Flatbread Melts, which look more like something Taco Bell would unleash upon the world. The Melts come with either roasted beef or chicken, pepper jack cheese, grilled peppers, onions, fajita seasoning and red jalapeno sauce in between a warm flatbread.

The Roast Beef Fajita Flatbread Melt has 514 calories, 34 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 83 milligrams of cholesterol, 1717 milligrams of sodium, 29 grams of carbohydrates and 25 grams of protein. The Roast Chicken Fajita Flatbread Melt has 471 calories, 25 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 81 milligrams of cholesterol, 1608 milligrams of sodium, 31 grams of carbohydrates and 28 grams of protein.

  1. They look good but are high on calories. It was funny too because I really have no clue when the last time I was at Arby’s.

  2. I guess this is the result when companies are looking for innovative ways of hooking customers during an economic recession.

  3. Makes me wonder if this will be as expensive as the rest of their food is… I’m still kind of upset with arby’s over that whole “roastburger” promotion thing they don’t honor here.

  4. Arby’s has got it right with the Market Fresh sandwich line but still feels the need to mix it up with these new items like the Roastburgers and these flatbreads…I’m seeing mixed results in it’s future.

    Arby’s needs to bring back the Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich and Onion petals and I’ll be happy. I hope they don’t take away the Jamocha shake next.

  5. I stopped going to Arby’s after they didn’t include bacon on my roast beef sandwich that I’d paid for…saw it when I got home. I did send in a complaint via email that got completely ignored, and calling up the store did no good either…so I was like, well, that’s one place that won’t be contributing to my future heart disease.

  6. I agree with Nate. Even the roast beef one is okay, although I generally don’t like roast beef. My only complaint is that the juice tends to drip and I inevitably end up with it on my shirt.

    Granted, if there was a Taco Bell within driving distance during my lunch break I’d be eating a cheesy gordita crunch instead!
