Manhattan just turned perfect, there's an Arby's here now!

Eater told me so.

Finding out that there was no Arby's here during my first year of school was as rough as figuring out how so-so the Mexican food is here.

With the new openings in my schedule, you can expect an Arby's report soon . . . but right now I'm so full of homemade taquitos that I can barely think of delicious, delicious roast beef sandwiches.

Not only is Arby's probably best restaurant, it is responsible for one of my most favorite Seinfeld quotes (from "The Dealership"):

ELAINE: (Full of pride) My new salesman boyfriend took me out to celebrate his promotion.

JERRY: Ah. Where’d you go?

ELAINE: (Obviously embarrassed) Uh, to a restaurant.

PUDDY: Arby’s.

ELAINE: I had the roast beef...

Uhm, you sort of need to see how she says it, because that's the funny part.

Wow! I used to love Arby's when I was a kid. Then we moved to California and they seemed to disappear overnight...

This is obviously a sign that I'm not getting enough roast beef (smothered in cheese sauce) in my diet.

Mmmmmm...... I love Arby's too. I love Horsey Sauce and Arby Sauce.

What! Having no Arby's access was a major contributing factor to leaving NY! (This is no joke) Maybe I should come back! I'm all sorts of confused now.

My favorite Arby related TV homage is on The Simpsons, where I believe they are stuck on an island and Sheri/Teri says "I'm so hungry I could eat at Arby's"

I almost posted that quote too (I promise!) but didn't want to confuse people with my mixed-message.

Homer: Now, what do you have to wash that awful taste out of my mouth?
Vendor: Mountain dew.. or crab juice.
Homer: Eeew, oh, jeez! I'll take a Crab Juice.

CASA NOVA TENANT: Hey, there, Kirk.

KIRK: Oh boy! What's going on? Patio party?

CASA NOVA TENANT: No, a possum drowned in the pool. You have any garbage bags?

KIRK: Just throw it over the fence. Let Arby's worry about it.


MARGE: People do crazy things in commercials. Like eat at Arby's!

this arby's post is freaking me out: today a friend just explained to me that richmond is home to the only arby's that sells beer.

p.s. my word verification begins with alf! did/does he like arby's?
