    Appears the McRib went on sale stateside as of 10/17/2011. This web site lists sightings of the tasty (purely opinion based) morsel! I myself love them and always look forward to this time of year when I can grab a McRib(s) and veg out on the couch watching football/movies.

    Not a real big fan of the McRib but I know a few people that will be happy with this.

    What they need to bring back is the McDLT.

    A Mcrib without sauce is like a movie prime who can't rip off faces.

    "So we keep the lettuce and the tomato separate from the burger, so we keep the hot side hot and the cool side cool. Then we put it under a heat lamp and...oh."

    Back on topic, the McRib is great. And a good marketing idea to make it available once the real barbecue season* is over.




    * Expiration of "real barbecue season" may vary or not exist in more southern climes.

    I had my first McRib last year, and honestly, I don't really understand the hype. Still, I'll probably have one sometime this year. Only specialty item I would ever want them to include on the yearly menu, would be the shamrock shake.

    Sadly, I read this, and I was like, "What the fuck is a McRib?"

    They had the McRib here in Canada, only for a short time (during the summer). Tried one, 'tis awesome.

    Several years ago, I used to work with a girl who stopped by McDonalds to get a McRib on her way to work.

    She told me she is taking it back when she gets off from work. She said the McRib was not fully cooked.

    Didn't it start to stink after a few months? I doubt she'll get her money back at this point.

    Glad I don't work at Mickey D's any more. Those things were super messy to make.

    i love the mcrib, got to go get me one with no onions

    my dad actually was one of the original taste testers for the sandwhich, it originally had a different sauce but him and several other people suggested to change it and now the mcrib is what it is now

    I remember they had these for a while when I used to work at McDonalds back in high school. Then they made the McRib Jr and it confused everyone. It had no onions on it and it was on a regular hamburger bun. It was weird. The meat wasn't even shaped like a fake rib, more like a flat, porky McNugget.
