McRib Returns to McDonald's Menu Nov 2: McRib Locator
The McRib Has Returned to McDonald's Nationwide for Six Weeks
It may be election day in the United States, but it is also another really important day. The McRib has returned to McDonald's menus across the country, and with 26 grams of fat and websites dedicated to finding it, it is sure to be the early Christmas present you have all been waiting for.
You may not need to use the McRib locator listed below, (for the next six weeks anyway), but McDonald's is holding a competition for the best story about looking for or eating a McRib so if you want to win a trip to Germany put your McRib tale on paper.
This is the first time in 16 years that the McRib has been available at every U.S. McDonald's at the same time.
At a McDonald's restaurant in downtown Los Angeles, a placard declaring "McRib Joy!" is displayed next to menu signs offering the chain's new healthful salads along with the regular fare of burgers and fries.
The restaurant started serving McRibs a couple of weeks ago, ahead of the nationwide launch, and has sold about 150 a day since, said manager Ismael Herrera. In one hour Monday, he said, customers ordered 58 McRibs.
The McRib is a pork patty that is formed into the shape of ribs, served on a hoagie bun with onions and pickles and of course the barbecue sauce. One sandwich has about 500 calories, 240 of them from fat, and 980 milligrams of sodium.
