Claycord Online Museum – Arby’s On Clayton Rd. In Concord + Concord Resident Donald Davis Wins Free Arby’s For Life!


Who remembers Arby’s on Clayton Rd. in Concord?

It was built in the late-70s, but didn’t make it through the 80s.

Arby’s was located at 4340 Clayton Rd. in Concord, just east of Treat Blvd.


During their grand opening in the late-70s, a young Concord resident named Donald Davis won a free roast beef sandwich from Arby’s every day for the rest of his life.

Anyone know Donald Davis today? Has he gone to Arby’s every single day since he won the prize in 1978? 🙂

The building is no longer an Arby’s, it has housed New Lim’s Garden for the past several decades (see below).

Mr Davis has to drive quite a long drive if he still lives in Concord and goes to Arbys every day!!
So annoying that there is no Arby’s close to Concord. 🙁

I really wish there was an Arby’s near here. Their sandwiches are delicious!

If he ate at Arby’s every day, Mr. Davis probably didn’t make it through the 80’s, either.

Where’s the Beef !

I went to an Arby’s in the 70’s and tried their roast beef sandwich. It tasted strange so I looked inside. The “meat” looked mosaic; flaked and glued together. I never went back. Roy Rogers used to have a roast beef chain. The meat was real, sliced very thin. I’d love to see that come back.
