Attention Gastronomes - For A Limited Time Only



The McRib is back, but only for a limited time. If you want to liven up your Christmas menu with some haute fast food, head over your local McDonald's. This won't last.

Slow day John ?

I actually like the McRib with extra ketchup on top.

I thought the animal they made the McRib from is extinct?

Sounds as if Chuck is a McRib purist.

I agree with the pickles and onions but the ketchup acts as a wetting agent allowing a more enjoyable swallowing experience. It's virtually flavorless, I swear.

Personally I like my McRibs dripping with sauce, nothing worse than getting one that was sitting by the warming trays.

LOL, my wife tried to hide fact that it was being served again. Once I saw the sign I made a quick u turn and guess what I had for dinner that night

Well Craig if you can make it, then you've got my vote next year!

I had a McRib last night. It wasn't what I remembered from my youth. It sucked actually. The bread is now some wannabe sourdough bread. My recollection is that the bread was just regular bread before. And the "rib" was nasty. It had a cartilaginous texture to it. That didn't bother me when I was a young punk, but it definitely does now. A disappointment overall.

The price was cheap though. A McRib, two apple pies, and a coffee were four bucks. But you definitely get what you pay for.

Damn lol! I had to have one on the way home last night too. I got up to the window and was told they don't offer the McRib. Must be a regional offer, or John is on crack.

I settled for a tasty Filet-o-Fish. Damn that is good eating right out of the box!

I usually pour a ton of Tabasco sauce on my Mc Rib to aid in the digestive process.

East Coast alert!!! I was driving back to work from lunch today (Campbell's chunky beaf vegetable) after letting the puppy out for while, and low and behold I saw the sign. Great big billboard sign advertising the McRib for a limited time only at local McD's!!!!! That was quick!

I'll give a report later this week.....

Back in the mid '80s when I was in high school and the McRib was the rage, my high school started offering their own version of the McRib. I'm not sure what they put in those things, but I ended up barfing all over the bus on the ride home. I've never had a McRib again. I coludn't even eat ribs until a few years ago when I bought the smoker.

Ditto John Lee on the Rib. Not the same white loaf as in previous iterations. This unit was served hot on wheat bread, toasted but chewy. And the "meat" was odd textured. I gagged on the second bite, then broke a piece off for the pup. He wouldn't eat it either.

Long live the Filet o' Fish (and her bastard cousin the "Whaler")!!!

I think the 4 bucks would be more nutritional.

I went to Mc D's yesterday and ordered a McRib and the person taking my order, looked at me like I was insane.

That's pretty bad when the dude behind the counter looks at you funny when you order a certain food.
