Primary Menu

It’s been eight years since the McRib was available at McDonald’s restaurants across the country, and now the fast food chain is bringing it back nationwide.

Starting on December 2nd, you’ll be able to socially distantly roll into your local McDonald’s and pick up that seasoned boneless pork sandwich slathered in smoky, tangy barbecue sauce, topped with slivered onions and pickles.

“The McRib has been a beloved menu item at McDonald’s since its inception nearly 40 years ago,” said Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen.

“There’s nothing quite like the taste of the McRib. To our customers, it’s become more than a delicious, saucy moment… it’s a season, and it’s taking the internet by storm. That’s why this year, we’re proud to serve the McRib nationwide for everyone to enjoy.”

The McRib is available for a limited time starting in December, no word on an end date for the promotion.

If you’re looking for it year round, you’ll have to do some traveling – it’s available all 12 months of the year in Germany.
