In this special Friday episode, Jersey Joe explores the new Arby’s secret menu item: The Denali Meat Mountain sandwich.  What makes it better than the original sandwich and why it’s only available for a short time.

THE 411

Name: Denali Meat Mountain sandwich

Restaurant: Arby’s

Locations: most locations nationwide

Cost: $10 plus tax

Link: http://arbys.com/our-menu/roast-beef/meat-mountain

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

If you’re thinking about trying this secret menu item… DO IT NOW!  It is only available until Easter at the latest.  This is due to Arby’s introducing fish to their menu for Lent.  This same fish has been added to the Arby’s Meat Mountain sandwich, to form this super limited fast food item.  I love when restaurant’s experiment with their menus and applause to Arby’s for really going for it!

[Kicking Back with Jersey Joe] Taco Fun Facts

Love tacos?  Jersey Joe explores these fun facts about tacos!

THE 411

What: Tacos

Fact: Americanized version of Mexican food

Available: globally

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

Tacos are definitely one of my favorite foods.  But, living in the New York City area, it’s actually hard to find a restaurant that serves good ones.  Most, just slap cheap meat on a cheap soft taco and try to sell that off as awesome.  I don’t think so…

The best tacos I’ve ever had are at Nacho Daddy in Las Vegas, Nevada.  They now have 2 locations in Vegas: downtown just off of Fremont Street and another on Las Vegas Blvd.

Where have you had some awesome tacos?  I’d love to know, so I can sample and share!
