The hard-to-get Arby's venison sandwich is to make a return later this month with every location across the country offering the limited-edition meal.
Last fall, the sandwich was offered at just 17 locations in six states which saw lines out the door and many patrons frustrated as demand quickly outstripped supply.
The venison sandwich was sold only in five select hunting-centric states with participating restaurants selling out of the sandwich within hours.
The sandwich will return for one day only on October 21 and be available at every Arby's restaurant in America.
The Arby's venison sandwich includes a thick-cut steak and crispy onions on a toasted roll with a berry sauce and will be available across the country on October 21st only

'The positive response to our limited offering of venison last year was so widespread and passionate that we knew we had to find a way to offer it nationwide,' said Jim Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer of Arby's.
'On October 21, we want hunters and meat enthusiasts across the country to visit their local Arby's and enjoy this amazing sandwich.'
The decadent sandwich features thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions on a toasted roll with juniper berry steak sauce.
The patties are made with free-range farmed deer that feed on fresh grass with with premium cut top and bottom round steaks from the hind quarter.

The meat came from a New Zealand farm and the chops were slow-cooked and then vacuum-sealed before being shipped to the individual locations, which then reheated the meat and assembled the sandwich.
The company started its venison meat burger to attract customers who hunt but it is also offering elk at three locations in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.
The elk sandwich will be topped with blackberry port sauce and crispy onions.
