Do you want to try something new from Arby’s? The Diablo Dare Sandwich is an excellent item to try, and you can get it with their famous roast beef or chicken.
Read on to learn more about the specialty menu item.
About the Arby’s Diablo Dare Sandwich
The Arby’s Diablo Sandwich comes with either chicken or roast beef. Of course, if you’re a fan of Arby’s you’ll probably prefer the roast beef version.
Along with the meat, it comes with natural cheddar, shredded lettuce, diced jalapeño, diablo BBQ sauce, a diablo bun, and fiery seasoning. The chicken sandwich has all of the same toppings, but it replaces the roast beef with a chicken filet.
So whether you prefer beef or chicken, you can get a spicy sandwich. You can also appease more of your family or friend group if you can’t decide between a beef or chicken restaurant.
About the Arby’s Spicy Challenge
To participate in Arby’s Spicy Challenge, you can order either version of the Diablo Dare Sandwich. Pair it with loaded fries, which will come with the same seasoning, jalapeños, and diablo BBQ sauce, but it also includes cheddar cheese sauce.
Arby’s will include a small vanilla shake that you can use to cool your palette as you eat. You’ll want to track the number of bites you take before you need a sip of the shake. If you have a TikTok account, film yourself completing the challenge.
Then, you can post your video with the tag #ArbysDiabloDare. Follow the hashtag to see how you did compared to other spicy food fans.
When to Get the Diablo Sandwich
Unfortunately, neither version of the Diablo Dare Sandwich is a permanent menu item. As of this writing, Arby’s brought them back at the end of October 2022. They’ll only be available for a limited time.
If you’re reading this later, be sure to follow Arby’s on social media. You can also visit your local Arby’s regularly to learn about new menu items and specials. Then, you can find out as soon as possible when Arby’s will sell the spicy sandwich again.
Where to Get the Diablo Sandwich
Unfortunately, the Arby’s near you may not have the Diablo Dare Sandwich. You can look online and select your location. View the menu to see if either the beef or chicken version is in stock.
If not, you can select other locations to see if they have the version you want. Then, you can go to that store and pick up your spicy meat sandwich. Don’t forget to order the loaded fries and a shake to balance out the heat.
Make Your Own Sandwich
If you can’t get your hands on an Arby’s sandwich, you can recreate it at home. First, you’ll need some roast beef or a crispy piece of chicken. Then, you can add a slice of cheddar cheese and some shredded lettuce from the grocery store.
Chop up some jalapeños as well. Unfortunately, the other ingredients are harder to recreate, but you can try combining some hot sauce with your favorite BBQ sauce. Look for some spicy seasonings as well.
You can add some of the seasoning to the bun of your choice to recreate the diablo bun. It probably won’t be exactly like the Arby’s sandwich, but you can get pretty close. Then, you can satisfy your craving for the sandwich until Arby’s releases it again.
If you don’t want to make your own sandwich at home, you have other options. Arby’s is one of the few restaurants that makes roast beef sandwiches. However, you can find similar chicken sandwiches pretty easily.
Here are a few menu items to try that come close to the Arby’s Chicken Diablo Sandwich.
McDonald’s Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich
The McDonald’s Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich starts with the same basic ingredients. You can enjoy a chicken filet on a potato roll, though the roll isn’t spicy. It also comes with spicy pepper sauce, which may taste similar to the diablo BBQ.
Ask for it without pickles, and request to add cheese, lettuce, and jalapeños. This sandwich won’t be exactly the same, but it’s an option if you can’t get to Arby’s. McDonald’s is so popular that you’re bound to be within a few miles of one, especially in a city or metro.
Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich
Some of the best chicken sandwiches come from chicken restaurants. The Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich is another alternative to the Arby’s sandwich. Unfortunately, you’ll need to customize it more than the McDonald’s sandwich.
Get it without any pickles. Then, you can add jalapeños, lettuce, and cheese. But it will be American cheese, not cheddar. You can also order a side of BBQ sauce and add it to your sandwich.
But you may want to take this sandwich home to add hot sauce and spicy seasonings. And of course, it’s not the best option if you’re craving something spicy on a Sunday.
Popeye’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich
The Popeye’s Spicy Chicken is another excellent option. It comes with Louisiana spices baked onto the chicken, so you don’t have to add any yourself. You can also order it with a spicier mayonnaise to add more heat.
Unfortunately, Popeye’s doesn’t disclose the other ingredients on their website. You can go to a local Popeye’s and ask what comes on the sandwich. Then, customize it so that it has the Diablo Dare ingredients.
Now, you may need to do those customizations at home. Get some cheese, lettuce, and jalapeños from the grocery store. You can ask for BBQ sauce from Popeye’s and mix it with your own hot sauce.
