    Didn't taste very venison-y to me...but I think that's what they were going for.

    I pulled through the drive through, and saw this today! I didn't try it though... I have a freezer full. I highly doubt the staff at Arbys could get it right...

    OK got it. Not white tail US. Farm raised in New Zealand and grass fed. I got to give them credit for trying though.

    It was a little on the tough side...and way too much peppercorn...but it wasn't half bad for a commercial attempt.

    I really just had to see how fast food venison turned out. Definitely nowhere near home cooked, but better than I expected tenderness wise.

    I took it off the bun and ate it with a knife and fork like a steak.

    They used a peppercorn spice rub to cover the venison taste. But it did look like the picture, only a centimeter of browning and mostly pink in the middle. I like the taste of venison...and there was a little of it there, but not much.

    Being a commercial product; I'm assuming it was farm raised. Did it taste farm raised or "gamey" as the citiots call it?

    The last venison I had was in WIsconsin, the real stuff. I'll have to check this out, Arby's sandwiches are pretty good in general IMO.
