Arby’s is back again with another one of the meatiest meat-wiches they could possibly make. It’s a coronary between two fluffy buns and you’d most surely love every saucy bite of it—if you could get your hands on it.

The “Arbynator” went viral this week after fast food blog GrubGrade shared the above photo. It’s a limited-time offering from the chain whose slogan is “We Have The Meats,” and has so far been found at an Arby’s in Holland, Michigan. As it goes with these fast food promotions, the company tests their new epic creations at a few locations to gauge customer response before (maybe) releasing it to more stores.

Available in three sizes—the Classic, the Double and the Half Pound—the sandwich features a mountain of sliced meat, topped with some gloriously golden fried goodies. The company has confirmed to The Daily Meal that the sandwich indeed contains “all of Arby’s legendary menu items and sauces on a single sandwich.”

Among those legendary items is a whole lotta’ roast beef, which gets topped with curly fries. The whole thing is smothered with three different sauces, including cheddar sauce, Arby’s sauce (a spiced up ketchup) and Horsey sauce (a sauce of mayo with horseradish powder). Throw it all between two halves of a sesame seed bun and you’ve got yourself the towering carnivore candy that is the Arbynator.

Curly fries inside of a sandwich? Fries in a burrito? The only thing that could make this week better is curly fries inside of french fries. That’s right, double fries. If you’re brave enough for the challenge, make our day by using #GeniusKitchen.
