McDonald's McRib is coming back. And this time, it's going nationwide.
For the first time in nearly a decade, the fast food chain is making the fan-favorite sandwich available at all of its 14,400 US restaurants when it hits menus on December 2. In previous years, the McRib was only sold at some locations, which sparked excitement and subsequent long lines — a no-no in this time of social distancing.
Described as "saucy, tangy, tender and shamelessly delicious," the McRib first appeared on menus nearly 40 years ago. The sandwich is a boneless pork patty, shaped like a rack of ribs and smothered in barbecue sauce.
So I, for one, cannot wait. One of my few guilty pleasures.
