McRib returns to McDonald’s on November 1st

McRib side view

Last seen during Winter 2020, we’re excited to announce that the McRib is making another seasonal return this November, to McDonald’s menus. If you’re one of the very few still not to have tried this special treat from the Golden Arches, check out our review of the McRib. When we last saw the rib shaped patty sandwich on menus the price was $4.20 per sandwich, no word yet on the 2021 pricing.

Fact fans might want to note that the McRib is now a FORTY year old special, first appearing on McDonald’s menu back in 1981 at a Kansas City McDonalds. The cult-favorite sandwich comes with a seasoned boneless pork patty smothered in BBQ sauce and topped with onions and pickles.

We will bring you a reminder as soon as the McRib launches for the year as well as an update on the price. In the meantime, you can also get planning on your menu hacks using the McRib. Here’s ours, behold, the Old McDonald Had A Farm Burger
