I visited Arby’s for a good-old-fashioned chicken tender meal. On the kids menu of course.

Take a look at what was included:

  • 2 chicken tenders
  • choice of dipping sauce
  • curly fries
  • CapriSun juice pouch
  • collectable paper craft boss toy
  • launcher token

The options for the drink were CapriSun, Low-Fat milk, and Low-Fat chocolate milk. You also had a choice for the side: curly fries or TreeTop Applesauce.

Score: 10/10


The price came out to be 3.99 before tax and 4.21 after tax. For a toy, a collectable assembly toy and the launcher token, two chicken tenders, fries, drink and dipping sauce? That is one great deal. Although the meal is a bit small, it would be perfect for a kid, just for ~$4.

Score: 9/10

Portion Size

This meal comes with two chicken tenders, about medium sized. I have a pretty average to small stomach, and this whole meal filled me up for a couple hours. The tenders themselves were about the size of a palm, about 2 inches wide, making it a pretty average sized tender– great for kids. It also included a handful of fries and juice pouch (which was gone in 1 minute). With the fries and juice, this would definitely satisfy someone with a smaller stomach.

Score: 8/10

Dipping Sauce

The choices of dipping sauces were available:

  • Bronco Berry
  • Honey Dijon Mustard
  • Buffalo
  • Tangy BBQ
  • Ranch

Their choices were actually pretty good. I like that they have more than just the select few of honey mustard, ranch, and BBQ. I ordered the ranch (as I always do), and it is super creamy and thick. You can see the specks of seasoning in the ranch as well. It has a slight garlicky taste, along with onion– ever so slightly. This ranch isn’t the best I have ever had, but it is enjoyable.

Score: 9/10


The curly fries were crispy, close to being overdone, but still have some soft inside. The chicken tenders had light breading and the chicken-to-breading ratio is good. The breading did not disrupt the chicken, they worked in harmony. The chicken was super juicy and flavorful, also not hot enough to burn your mouth on. The ranch was thicker, creamier, garlicky ranch than most. And you could see the seasonings specks inside the ranch. I wouldn’t say it was gourmet, but it is good to have with some good-old-fashioned chicken tenders.

Score: 8/10

    Hello Auburn,

    I think it’s cool you decided to do a review page on various kids menus; definitely a new idea that I haven’t really seen before. The layout of the page is really clean and organized, which possessing slight OCD, I appreciate. I have never really tried anything other than roast beef sandwiches from Arby’s, but after reading your post, maybe it’s a good idea to make the trip down the road and grab a tenders kids meal. A really fun and interesting post to read, good job!

    This post is really helpful for me! I am a picky eater and my boyfriend LOVES Arby’s, but I have always struggled to find food I enjoy eating there. With your recommendation, I’ll have to try the chicken tenders next!

    My personal favorite meal from Arby’s is the buffalo chicken sandwich. I honestly think that it is probably the best chicken sandwich you can get from fast food outside of Chic-Fil-A

    This is a neat idea for a blog. Im assuming you love food and so do I. Arbys is kind of an underrated fast food chain in my opinion, but its cool to see other peoples thoughts on the chain since it is often overlooked.
