But I love creamed spinach. I love any sort of spinach. And seriously, the last couple of times I was there I had the liver.
 
The warmup parking lot?

Due to the monster blizzard that hit the Ohio River Valley area this morning, almost every place to eat in Batesville was closed today. Because of this I ended up at the Golden Arches for lunch, where I had my first and last McRib sandwich. Boy, what a total waste of time, money and a healthy appetite. A slab of flavorless reconstituted pork covered with the same cruddy "barbeque sauce" that they serve in packets with their McNuggets, sided by cold leathery french fries. Thanks a lot, Mother Nature!

I was appalled to see some McDonald's were closed yesterday. How could anyone get a McRib for Christmas?

Because of the storm.. my parents decided it was best to be in California for Christmas.

They spent part of their day at Mc Donald's...with McRib.

I'll post pictures when I get them!

Fantastic! I always enjoyed going to McOnald's when I lived on St. Thomas. Terrific music -- great steel band, and Brownie, who moonlighted (actually, daylighted) as a cab driver, did fantastic Calypso -- Fire, Fire, In She Wire Mama ... Oy Oy Oy, O Yo Yo.

I haven't seen any of those since I was last on Hog Island off Nassau. I understand they call it Paradise Island these days now that they've killed all the wild hogs.

McRib scoffs at your feeble attempt to add lettuce, and I bet using decent bread actually made it worse! Hell, everyone knows the worst Banquet $0.99 dinner is the shaped rib patty. Was it any better then McD's? A side by side comparison (with pics) would be fun :D

I ordered a McRib at Giuseppi's last week, but they were out so I had to settle for the eggplant rollatini.

McRib will be quite pleased with onion rings & asparagus with hollandaise.

That's how McRib rolls.

Re:McRib - Sat, 12/29/12 2:15 PM
Onion Rings?????????......perks!. If only McD offered them!  As one who is often sent on a "mission" to acquire pizza and/or subs, I prefer a place that has onion rings so I can munch on them on the way home.  I have also learned to order a small Coke since by the 2nd traffic light on the way home I have burnt my mouth.  I tend to go about 3:30-4 on most of these missions since then rings (or in a pinch, Fries) are always cooked to order

Because I just know this picture will get everyone's juices flowing for their next McRib, I present you an uncooked, unsauced, unadorned McRib in it's rawness.

...tried the BK clone yesterday. Great sandwich for a thin $1.00.
And comes with onions! 
Do you have these in your area or is it a West coast thing?

Re:McRib - Thu, 11/14/13 3:03 AM
There's national outrage over this. I can't believe people are really surprised. On-Cor has that frozen family-sized rib patty entrée that we get regularly for about $3.50. You put them in the over for 50 minutes and they're not bad.
 
I like to toast up some hoagy buns in the over and melt some provolone on them the final couple of minutes.
 
Man, I haven't had those in a while and now I may to go buy some of those...
 
My wife gets pissed at me because she occasionally goes there to get a wrap and I refer to them as "McCraps".

So what's the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a "glue" that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

I usually have about one per season. The article suggests that I may have been overindulging. Message received.

McDonald's announced today that McRib won't be a national release this year, but rather left up to individual franchisees if they want to serve it or not.

I agree with Michael.  It is just a sandwich and the taste is a bit better than OK.  It might have been better if they had named it something else?  I think folks buy it expecting a true rib which it ain't.  It is just a sandwich just like balogna is  a sandwich.  Like Michael, I only have had one.
