Fast-food venison is apparently a hit.
A week after Arby’s announced it would serve deer meat at select locations throughout the month of November, a Nashville-area restaurant sold out of the sandwiches in just five hours on Tuesday.
According to The Tennessean , the restaurant sold 100 sandwiches in an hour and completely sold out of its allotment of 250 by mid-afternoon. The high demand ended what was supposed to be a three-day promotion in just five hours.
Arby’s will begin selling the sandwiches — which also include crispy onions and a juniper berry sauce — at restaurants in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Atlanta beginning Friday. For a full list of restaurants that will serve the venison sandwiches, click here .
