Am I the only one not going bananas over this thing? I always thought it was a grade above the school lunch BBQ Beef Sandwhich.

I'm curious how many of these CRZ can put down before the end of the promotion. He should be getting them for free as he's done a much better job at getting the McRib word out than any Media outlet I've been around.

That's kind of the point. I had a McRib the other day. It's easily my favorite fast food that barely qualifies as food item, partially because McDonalds manufactures its coming and going as an "event". Also, the McRib only made me a little sick, so bonus. I won't have another until next year/next time it reappears.

I expect to put down #5 and #6 as soon as I drag my fat ass over to the nearest McDonald's.

Last year, I ordered a meal and took it home only to be horrified to discover that somehow both sandwiches had gone completely free of sauce. Calling their 800 number to complain put me on their mailing list, I guess, because this year they mailed me 2 coupons for a free McRib. (I also got a free make-good at my local McD's last year - so if you needed a tip on how to score free food at McDonald's...there you go)

I think last year they were around for like six weeks - this year they're supposedly gone by 11/14, so it's even more artificially scarce this time around! But I don't think I'll be having any more meals after today - I WILL cash in the coupons, though, but I'll probably take Kim (who may think having one is too many - we'll see).

I have a confession to make: I am that rare American who finds everything at McDonald's delicious.

Add me to that list, though since my gall bladder was removed I have had to be a bit more restrained in my trips to McDs. I had to go with the McRib the other night, and I swear I could've eaten SEVERAL. It's the sauce, I think.

McD's is pretty tasty, but I just cant bring myself to eat there. I'm not a "healthy eater" by any stretch, and my first-name-basis status with the working staff at my local Wienerschnitzel/WingStop/Carl's Jr/Costco pizza window can attest to that, but there's just something about going to McD's that makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong.

I only ate their food once in 2009 (6 McNuggets, small fries, small Hi-C), once in 2010 (McFlurry), and nothing so far in 2011.

The promise of a McRib is far better than the actual McRib. (Or, they were better when I was a kid, one or the other.)

I'll get one this time around, as I always do, but I'll most likely be disappointed.

Nowadays, when I want a pork sandwich, I get my ass to The Oinkster (theoinkster.com).

I don't think we're a rare breed in this country. Though their newer Angus burgers are a bit dry and tasteless.

I'll have a McRib, never was my favorite thing there, but they are decent. It's a good excuse to get another Apple Pie and Oreo McFlurry.

I usually have one a year, wonder why I bother, then forget about it again until next year.

But I had the one for this year last week, and for some reason REALLY liked it. So I had another yesterday. And I REALLY liked it again. So I may have more. And more. And more.

Damnit.

Unintentional side effect...I'm also on a Big Mac kick now. How in the hell did that sandwich get to the $3.69 price point? It's a McDouble with an additional bun piece and different toppings for crying out loud.

Wasn't there a thread about customizing fast food that was somewhat of a blueprint for a build your own Big Mac (for cheap!) a few years ago? I'd look but I'm posting from my phone and that makes HTML annoying. I'm also lazy. But IIRC, you can get a McDouble with a sesame bun, chopped lettuce and secret sauce at no additional cost. Then use some fries to make the other bun piece and you have a ghetto Big Mac for $2.16 (NY price).

Or you could get two surprisingly delicious Mac snack wraps.

Seconded. The coffee is actually quite good, and if it weren't for a local Fredericksburg flavor they'd also have the best vanilla cone available.

Why the F hasn't Wendys brought back the flavor-dipped chicken sandwiches? I had a BBQ one a couple years ago. It was like a McRib but ONE MILLION TIMES BETTER.

And then they were gone, never to be seen again. COME BACK.

Just like previous Wieners above myself, I have to agree. Probably be the death of on some late night at a 24-7 one.

Also, well played on getting on the mailing list. That deserves a get glue sticker.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but that might just be a regional thing. They still had the flavor-dipped chicken sammiches at the Wendy's near my office in midtown Manhattan the last time I went there (i.e., yesterday). =\

I just wish McDonald's would bring back the Cheddar Melt again. It used to be a semi-annual returnee, like the McRib, and then it just vanished. When I was a kid and first tried them, I demanded my mother make all my burgers at home with cheez whiz on a rye bun.

McRibs are okay, too, though.

I challenge you to try to local breakfast combo in Hawaii: Portugese sausage, Spam, eggs, and rice. I did it for the experience but would not do it twice.

But then I don't like the McRib, either.

I eat fried spam on a bowl of rice with a fried egg on top with dried seaweed sprinkles on a regular basis. That's good eating. It may slowly be killing me with sodium... but tasty!

She loves spam. It's weird.

Luckily, I also like spam.
