Do you know how Arby’s got its name?  Brothers Forrest and Leroy Raffel wanted to call their restaurants "Big Tex", but that name was taken - So instead, they chose the name "Arby's" based on R. B., the initials of “Raffel Brothers”. Today the Arby’s system in Tucson looks to carry on the same family spirit and tradition present during the very beginning of the Arby’s business.

Come visit any of the 8 Arby’s listed below in the greater Tucson region and meet our family of excited team members who look forward to serving up some delicious food! We have some exciting plans ahead to grow this family both through renovations and development of new restaurants. Our entire team is looking forward to sharing all of these experiences with you!

Made my experience perfect. Food was out very quickly. Soda, and milk shake was also amazing.

I wasn’t eating anything because I had forgotten my wallet at a different restaurant, but all my company were able to order so I was left out. However, our server Morgan came and gave me a classic roast beef sandwich on the house. It was an unexpected act of kindness and it really heightened the experience of the night.
