The McRib is coming back to the Columbus area on Nov. 2. Never having had one I do not know if this is a good thing, and I have no intention of attempting to find out first hand.

Nope. I never eat products pushed by the Boneless Pig Farmers Association of America, and I don't eat sandwiches that have pickles on them.

I have eaten a McRib. I was drinking heavily at the time and had lost my direction in life.

That was long ago and with God's grace I will never eat a McRib again.

The McRib, along with White Castle hamburgers and Little Caesar's pizza, is a food never meant to be consumed sober.

I would have fewer issues with the McRib if were simply called, the McPork.  Throwing "Rib" out there, I have certain expectations of flavor to be achieved.  At which, it fails miserably.  Were it simply the McPork, it passes at that.  Allbeit, a cheap poorly executed one.

This is the case of a sandwich that wasn't terrible when it first came out. It was different, so it was popular. Now they roll it out every so often, even though it's become some pressed pork product shaped like ribs.

Personally, I'd rather they bring back the Shamrock Shake each St. Patrick's Day. I haven't seen that in at least 5 years.

The last time I checked this was the Fast Food Franchises & Non-Roadfood Chains Section. I suppose it's possible I might be wrong, but the last time I checked I believe McDOnald's qualified as a fast food restaurant, a franchise operation and as non-roadfood chain.

Unfortunately, the Seniors coffee is a regular size one. I always get a large to go. Granted, I could get two Seniors for less than the price of one large, but I prefer the convenience of just one cup.

I'm with you there, WJ.  I haven't purchased a food item at a McDonalds since the early 90's.  BUT- for a cup of coffee on the run, McDonalds beats any national coffee chain or deli.  It is surprisingly excellent and consistant.

I somehow remember the McRib of my teenage years being much more flavorfull and satisfying than the ones I have tried in recent years. About the second time the McRib came around I recall that there was a packet of special hot sauce available.

Is there anybody else that got hooked on the earlier product like I did?

Re:The McRib Makes Its Return 2009/11/01 16:56:39
I had one of these a long time ago....

Listen up McDonalds... Just take a few pans full of boneless country style ribs, slow roast/smoke  them for several hours and shake on some real american sauce
 or dry spices, stuff it in a great roll and sell it for a real sandwich experience.
 (forget about all that sugary sauce that makes people crave anything dead on bread!)
Why you got to ruin everything?
It doesn't a real chef that long to figure out that it would be a hit!
 
Just think of all the money you could save on all those testers, chemical chefs, gas, etc.
All you really need to do is keep it real.

I am a once and done concerning the McRib; not my cup of tea. But I whole hardly agree McDonalds does introduce a good product, then lessen it's quality trying to drive profits. Anyone that remembers McDonalds when they had no indoor seating, Speedy, they did not open until 11am and their sign read millions, not billions, will attest their hamburgers once were made from real beef and their milk shakes required ice cream, milk and mixing.

I have always  wondered why "McRib is back!" so this answers my question somewhat - I assumed it took time for them to amass the goo they needed for the McRib.  I live in the midwest and McRib has been here every time it "is back!" but I've never tried one.  My area has tested out the Mc Pizza and the McDinner, a sit down restaurant where you ordered from a jukebox-like thing o the table.  I did not try any of these things, but I do occasionally appreciate a sausage McMuffin!

I ate one a couple of years back...the only thing I liked was the pickle.

I don't know if it was the McRib, but our high school (I am an asst. principal) serves "rib patty" sandwiches weekly.  Much to my dismay, the kids love them.  I know they are hungry, but come on...

I'd much rather slap some cheap bbq sauce on a sandwich w/ham or roast beef.  At least I'd know what my "meat" was.

Well this is a little embarrassing, my first ever Roadfood post and it’s in defense of the McRib sandwich…
 
We had McRib in Connecticut about 20 years ago – shaped pork burger with bbq sauce, sweet pickles, and raw onions.  It tasted GOOD.  Yes, it is junk – about as close to a real BBQ pork sandwich as a McNugget is to real fried chicken – but if I was eating at Mickey D’s, McRib was what I ordered.  I hope it is successful in Columbus and makes a comeback nationwide.
 
p.s. A few Subway’s offer a similar product – and you can get it with BACON!

My only choice at McD is an egg McMuffin - if no White Castle is around to get one of their breakfast sandwiches.  I do not remember the last time this was the case though.
