Watch: We try the new sold-out venison sandwich at Arby's

If you were hoping to get to the one Arby's in Georgia that was set to serve a new venison sandwich today through Sunday -- you're out of luck.

The location at 4415 Roswell Rd. NE in Atlanta sold out of its entire supply in less than an hour. Arby's Brand President and Chief Marketing Officer Rob Lynch said there are already plans to bring the sandwich back next year.

The sandwich featured a thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions topped with a juniper berry sauce on a toasted roll. “The venison is marinated in garlic, salt and pepper and then cooked for three hours to juicy, tender perfection," according to a press release. "The juniper berry sauce is a Cabernet steak sauce infused with juniper berries, giving the already unique sandwich another signature twist.”

The sandwich will be offered at 16 other locations across the country, primarily in areas with a high deer hunting population including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
