The Last Arby’s in MoCo Has Closed

Arby’s, located at 11710 Rockville Pike in North Bethesda, has closed.

An employee of the location sent us a message yesterday letting us know that the location had closed and a visit to the restaurant revealed that the menu boards both inside and outside the location had been removed.

Though the location is listed as open on the Arby’s website, the phone number is now disconnected: we have reached out to Arby’s corporate for final confirmation.

We know Arby’s has had at least two other MoCo locations in the past– in Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg and in Wheaton.

Arby’s was founded in Boardman, Ohio, on July 23, 1964 by Forrest and Leroy Raffel. The restaurant was named for the Raffel Brothers (RB) rather than “roast beef, which many think it was named for. The chain has over 3,000 restaurants worldwide.

I was in this Arby’s three years ago dining in and I saw 2 rats climb the wall and into the ceiling tile. I informed the cashier and she just shrugged. Maybe that’s why they are closed.

It wasn’t the greatest Arby’s, but they probably closed
because the Pike & Rose construction severely limited
access to this location. It was frequently only accessible
to traffic already heading southbound on Rt 355.
Since Old Georgetown Rd had been cut-off before
reaching 355, the only way for traffic approaching from the south or west to reach this Arby’s was to make a
U-turn south after heading north on 355. BUT, frequently,
clueless construction-workers had the left-turn (U-turn)
lane blocked. Most people in this situation gave-up on
visiting Arby’s. Calls to Councilman Andrew Friedson,
(District 1) produced NO results.
