not being able to resist the temptation and hype that was swirling about (not to mention, being a secret fatty and loving all things fast food and/or barbeque), i just had to try the mcrib. as i pulled up to the drive-thru, hands shaking in anticipation, an angelic voice greeted me, "welcome to mcdonald's. would you like to try the mcrib?" damn, they're good. "yes, actually, i would!" and, as i lick the last traces of barbeque sauce off of my fingers, my curiosity has finally been satisfied. the mcrib is pretty darn mcyummy - i'd give it a 7 out of 10.
now, i wouldn't say that i'd eat this thing for every meal for the rest of my life. and i don't think it necessarily merits a grandiose obsession. i much prefer the angus 1/3 pounders. but the meat was surprisingly tasty, the barbeque sauce had the perfect amount of tang, and the onions gave it a little extra kick. i'm also quite bitter because i only got ONE pickle, so that might have lowered my rating a notch or two, but overall, not awful for a fast food joint's try at barbeque. i hear this run is only 6 weeks, so get 'em while they're hot! but you know the mcrib will be back. oh, it'll be back.
