McRib Wed, 08/3/05 11:11 PM (permalink)
Are there any Mickey D's that carry the McRib year round? Where I live about 65 miles from St. Louis, they only seem to trudge out the McRib about once a year, usually near christmas time.

    From what I have seen at all the McDonald's I have seen...it is just a yearly thing...I have never found one that has had it year round on their menu.

      I'm not trying to be a wiseguy here, but do you actually eat those things, or are you just curious about them?

        Far as I'm concerned it could be a Haley's comet timing kind of thing.

              You people talk about Mickey D's bad food but someone must like it since it is the biggest restaurant in the world

                It IS cheap--it is fast--and it is everywhere---but that dont make it good. Lots of folks like masochism and self abuse too! Personally--i live in an area where i can get a good bbqed pork sandwich year round--its a little more $ then McD's--but ONE fills me up!-abd the sides come with it!

                      I'll forever associate it with the 'Simpsons' version at Krusty Burger. Krusty's ringing endorsement: "*I* don't mind the taste!"

                        I'm sure they have reformulated the the McRIb, but when I worked at McD's in CA ('81'-'83), the McRib was actually good. It was a chopped pork patty formed in that stupid fake rib shape, but just chopped pork. We had to dedicate a separate grill to it because of the cooking time and temps -- If I remember correctly, we used 4-1 computer and went through 2 cycles to get them cooked. They then HAD to marinate in the hot BBQ sauce for a minimum of 1 hour before being ready to serve. Toast the bun, pickles and q-pounder onions on the bun, then the meat. It wasn't my favorite, but it was not bad food at all.

                          Yes...I like the McRib. To me, its by far the best thing at McDonalds when it is available.

                            I used to work at Mc Donalds and yes the McRib is a very hard product to have on the menu...yes you have to dedicate a separate grill for it, and you have to have the BBQ sauce set up to where you can get to it quick but not mess up all the kitchen with it, not to mention cleaning up the McRib mess............augh HOURS in the deepsink

                            But On topic....I think the McRib is yummy! especially with extra pickels and a lil big mac (thousand island dressing) sauce on it

                              IMO, if there were only one McDonald's in the world and if it had the present range of products and same prices, then Roadfooders would have found it for the fries, McGriddles, and maybe the premium salads. People would go some miles out their way for those items.

                              Several of the other fast food chains also have well developed items that deservedly draw customers.

                              So far as the McRib is concerned, when all is said and done its a beefless hot dog in sauce.

                                To hell with the McRib. Give me two double cheeseburgers & a large order of fries prepared the "original" way. No food police needed, thankx.

                                  Pray tell! What are food police? There are fastfood junkies posting here and there are people that voice their opinion on patronizing these dreadful fast food joints. You give your opinion and I will give mine.....thank you for your consideration.[|)][|)]

                                      I don't think that would look good on the arches. Them MicRibs is great. Not all yucky like that barbeq on the bones in Kansas City. Bones are for dogs, not human beans.

                                                When the McRib first came out it was the best. Now, ????. I can take it or leave it. I remember the days when Mc would cook your hamburger fresh if you just ordered it with out Ketchup. Now they just pull the patty out of the steamer tray and "here you go". Digusting. I used to order my burgers plain and well done and my fries with no salt. Then just dress them in the car or at the table. That way you get the food fresh of the grill. Nice and hot.

                                                  This is too funny. I worked in A McD's in CA in 1982. I used to cook the McRibs. It took a long time and there was a lot of grease but I liked the finished product. I have not had one since 1982 or even seen one since. I live in DC and would love to try one again.

It was a chopped pork patty formed in that stupid fake rib shape, but just chopped pork. We had to dedicate a separate grill to it because of the cooking time and temps -- If I remember correctly, we used 4-1 computer and went through 2 cycles to get them cooked. They then HAD to marinate in the hot BBQ sauce for a minimum of 1 hour before being ready to serve. Toast the bun, pickles and q-pounder onions on the bun, then the meat. It wasn't my favorite, but it was not bad food at all.

                                                    Chunked, formed and pressed pork.

                                                    McWhy??

                                                    I remember when they came out. I really wanted to try one. I took two bites and realized I was forcing myself (had to ask parents to get it).

                                                    I never really understood how anyone could eat pressed meat.

                                                        I think you can buy them in the grocery store. I do believe I have seen them by Banquet or something like that.
                                                        Have not tried them, will NOT try them, but if you like them, thats all that matters.

                                                          Hotdogs are a processed product, not pressed.

                                                            I don't care for McRibs either. As far as pressed meat goes you must not eat hamburgers either.
