    Someone explain to me how that 100 pound woman can lift enough ribs that would cause a car with concrete wheels to flip over? Almost as much of a mystery as what exactly in inside a McRib. Another good question if Fred knew that those ribs could flip his car would he have still ordered them?

    McDonalds in Australia has brought the McRib back for late 2018/early 2019 - I ate one recently and realised how awful the "rib" patty is and that BBQ sauce is it's only redeeming's hype that sells it...not the taste.

    I couldn't find the McRib anywhere near me in Boca Raton. Hell I ran into McDonalds employees who never even heard of the McRib. Managers too. I was wondering what caves they grew up in. What sucks about the McRib is that it is only in targeted areas. I think it is one of the best sandwiches on their menu. They so called classic or signature burgers? Suck, too dry and tasteless. Big Mac, Quarter pounders okay.

    I finally broke down and bought one. Nothing to write home about. Wet nursing home mattress with lots (and lots and lots) of BBQ sauce on it. The only flavor: BBQ sauce.
    I guess it's one-and-done for me on this product.

    Yeah I never eat fast food but if they advertise McRib when I was driving by as in like I do all the time. I probably would stop and buy a couple. And eat. Might last for another 2 to 10 years when they bring it back again! I would eat more big Macs if they would slop it with a hell of a lot more secret sauce!

    After the McRib was discontinued in 1985, you stated that it wasn't brought back until 1994, but I watched a McRib commercial that was claimed to have been shown in 1989, so which is correct?
