The McRib is back.
This morning, McDonald's announced via its official Twitter account that its storied pork sandwich would return to locations nationwide in a few weeks.
"Turns out we're not good at keeping secrets. The rumors are true. McRib returns Nov. 2 for a limited time," the post read.
In another Twitter post, McDonald's noted that this marks the first time McRibs have returned to restaurants nationwide in 16 years. The sandwich has made encore appearances in different McDonald's markets in the past few years.

The “McRib” has to be one of the most ingenious, nastiest, and best ideas from a fast food place ever devised. LOL!!
That thing ISN’T Ribs, or even meat from Ribs. Is it even Pork? lol Does anyone know what in the hell those things really are?
Having said all of that, the people that do eat those things sure seem to like them.
No, you are confused. That's women, not pigs.
The green shake I remember — drawing a blank on the clam thing.
McD’s had a so-called crabcake sandwich for a short time. Sorry, but no self-respecting Merlinder girl eats her crabcakes at McD’s.
I think I remember reading in Ray Krok's autobiography that he axed the clam thing himself. It was too outside of what to him McD's was all about.
Shamrock shakes also available in NJ around March 17th. We now call them ShamWOW shakes. Also, the pic you have of the clam bellies, note the McD’s Lobster Rolls at upper right... I’ve have had one in Maine, once... just to say I had one in Maine, once.
But I thought Nov 2 was the day we’d banish pork forever!
These anti bloating agents and compounds are also used to reduce swelling of the chicken coating, resulting in a tasty chewy substance, that tastes just like real chicken, also giving it that "breaded appearance". The rib products are sprayed with dye that resembles BBQ sauce, with a similar taste and texture.
It was the restaurant in Revere, Massachusetts, not too far from Kelly's Roast Beef (which also has great fried clams) and they definitely called it the "clam belly roll."
I don't know what they did with the clam strips, but the belly is the best part of the clam anyhow. I used to order the roll with no tartar sauce because I don't like tartar sauce. The roll was a bit messy to eat because those clam bellies were so juicy and like I mentioned before, they really jammed those clams into that toasted bun. Then all of a sudden, it disappeared off the menu, never to return.
Oh wow...totally forgot about the Shamrock Shake. Good times.
Nothing like ammonia-nized meat leftovers being pumped full of chemicals to try to taste like real meat, then being stamped into a form to look like ribs.
Why not just go for the real thing and get a real rib sandwich from a better place?
well, if you eat it, probably just one. :)
And the Colonel sells chicken 0holes to McDonald.
So, when you bite into one of McDonald’s chicken sandwiches and you hear a ***FFffrrrrappp*** you know that was from the Colonel.
because rib bones don’t chew up so easy?
Is it any good? I’ve never had one.
Krok might have been at the helm still. It might have been a trial run. I recall one big reason he didn't like the sandwich was because it was too messy.
PS- Jim Rice getting into the HoF was a joke! No way did he deserve it! :-P
Most people who like ribs know not to eat the bones. Besides McD’s meat is the LOWEST quality meat allowed to be served to people.
