The Newest Arby’s Location Is Only Accessible by Hiking

The new restaurant is opening on September 12.

One of the best pleasures of hiking, if you ask me, is getting to the top of the trail and rewarding yourself with a tasty meal. Apparently, Arby’s knows this well.

On Tuesday, September 12, Arby’s is opening to the public its most remote location ever, which you can get to only by taking a nice hike through the mountains in Aspen, Colorado. Outdoors enthusiasts and Arby’s lovers will be able to enjoy the gorgeous mountains at the end of summer, and marvel at the scenery while they make their way to a nice meal.

The so-called “Hike-Thru” will only be open for one day, and the experience will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.¬†The adventurous initiative is a celebration of the chain’s newest burger, dubbed Big Game Burger, which is launching on the same date and will be available at the new pop-up location. The burger is made up for a blend of venison, elk, and ground beef and topped with delicious crispy onions, pickles, Swiss cheese, and dark cherry steak sauce.

More details about the “Hike-Thru” experience and and how to obtain trail passes will soon be¬†available here. And in case the burger isn’t enough, Arby’s newest location will also be selling limited merchandise. Both on-site and online¬†starting on September 12, you’ll be able to find socks, water bottles, hats, and hiking anorak jackets to use on your next hiking adventure.Want more Thrillist?

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
