  1. Just tried the new pork belly…rather disappointed, but my hopes weren’t too high anyways. The barbecue sauce is WAY too sweet. And the pork belly was burnt due to reheating. The sandwich definitely lacks balance. Oh well, at least the Jamocha shake will never disappoint.

    1. First off, that’s basically true of any fast food item. But considering I’ve seen some fairly no-frills burgers top out at over 1000 calories and nearly 2500mg of sodium, that sandwich stacks up pretty well.

  2. Pork belly kept reminding me of a cartoon but I didn’t know why. Finally remembered that Pork Belly is the name of the town in Johnny Test on Cartoon Network…. They could use him as the mascot for the sandwich and then for a salad, the evil Darth Vegan.

    I think Cow and Chicken (also on Cartoon Network) were always being fed pork bellies also by their parents. That was kind of gross. Both the food and the show.

  3. I had the Smokehouse Mountain sandwich, for the first time yesterday. I was quite hungry when I began, so the first half of the sandwich was AMAZING. I took my time to critique the individual flavors with the second half. The smoked flavor in the meat is obvious. As a superior cook myself, I found the turkey and brisket to be void of ANY flavor except the smoked flavor from the wood. When I smoke my brisket, I create a rub made up of eight ingredients. The combination leaves my guest speechless and never have there been leftovers. Meat MUST be seasoned. Smoking the meat enhances these flavor. I give it a 7 out of 10. The fried onion and sauce greatly help compensate for missing seasonings. This is the best sandwich you can find at a fast food restaurant.

  4. Hey Guys
    Dave E Hughes here, your Chatham Illinois fast food expert. Both me and my partner Jock just love Arby’s new pork belly sandwich it is awesomely delicious filled with decadent goodness. So if you are looking for something ultimately delicious to eat Head on over to Arby’s and pick up a pork bell sandwich ?

  5. It’s 75 % fat. The fat slides off while eating it. Just a disgusting sandwich. I like the other smokehouse sandwiches though.

  6. Look, no one is buying a pork belly sandwich and worrying about nutritional value! To that end, I have now eaten 2 of them in the last month. They are absolutely marvelous! Better than bacon fatty goodness, light on the sauce, with the smoky flavor coming thru. If you are the kind of person who eats the fat strip that is usually attached to a steak, you will love this sandwich! Bring napkins and dental floss/toothpick, you’ll need it – but it will be worth it. Has replaced my previous favorite (Beef and Cheddar) as best sandwich at Arby’s!

    1. I agree. I love this. I really shouldn’t. But this smoked mix Is perfect. If you get a good char on the fat. Yummy!

  7. An awesome sandwich, best in fast-food. I’d recommend it without sauce. I’m not a big fan of sweet barbecue sauces.
