If you’ve been to Arlington fastfoods, you’ve probably seen the signature arlington steak and the signature barbecue sauce.
Arlington’s own Angus Steak & Barbecue and its sister franchise, Arlington BBQ, have both recently introduced new options.
They’ve made a few changes in their menu, but the burgers have stayed the same.
And the signature steak?
That was changed a bit too.
“It was changed because we were trying to do things a little differently,” Angus owner Michael McLean told News.au.
“There was some new concepts we were bringing to the table, but there’s a few things that we were just trying to keep true to what we’ve been doing for the last 10 or 15 years.”
“We didn’t want to do a one-off concept.”
McLean said the new arlington burgers are “almost identical” to the old one.
They’ll come with the same burger patty, bacon and bun, but will also include a side of grilled onions, fried eggs, fried jalapenos, a fried pickle, and a side salad.
They’re also a lot smaller.
“We just wanted to try and make the burgers as close to a regular burger as we could possibly get them to,” he said.
“They’re pretty much the same, but they’re actually much smaller.
It’s pretty similar in size to the steak.”
These burgers are made with Angus Beef, Angus Prime Ribs, Angus Dry Roast Beef, and Angus Dry-Grilled Bacon.
“These are the same quality beef and the same texture as the original,” McLean added.
The arlington burger is also available with a side selection of Angus Dry roasted bacon, but it won’t be the same as the one on offer at the original.
The burgers will be sold in “specialty” areas, including Arlington Market, and can be bought from Angus on a first come, first served basis.
The original Arlington burgers were introduced in 2017, and McLean says that they’ve remained the same since then.
“In the early days, there were a lot of people who were in the restaurant business and didn’t like burgers and didn, like, had a problem with the steak,” he explained.
“So we tried to keep it as close as we possibly could to what it was in the early years.”
Mclean said the beef was “absolutely the best beef I’ve ever tasted”.
“We’re going to be doing a lot more to try to get the steak right,” he added.
“But it’s the steak.
The quality, the taste, the texture, the beef.
It’ll be a lot better.” “
If you’ve had steak before and you don’t like it, just get it back to me.
It’ll be a lot better.”
McLeod said that the new burgers will only be available at the Arlington market for a limited time, so keep an eye on the Angus Facebook page for updates.
