McDonald's McRib is returning to menus across America on Wednesday, December 2, 2020. According to Business Insider, this will mark the sandwich's first national rollout since 2012. In years past, the beloved sandwich has returned to some, but not all, locations across the US. The patchy roll-out of the past few years has sparked confusion and frustration from McRib fans. The McRib is a seasoned boneless pork sandwich with barbecue sauce, onions, and pickles on a hoagie-style bun.
