Yes you read that right, I am blogging about McDonalds - the gross fast food chain. "Why" you may ask? Answer: Because the McRib is back! I haven't eaten one of these "things" in 15 years. I figured I'd let my seasoned taste buds judge this "Bar-Be-Que"sandwich.
Here is the low down on the McRib...it is not rib meat. It is a pork patty that is pressed to look like a rib and then deep fried. Slather super sweet tangy sauce on the "meat" with some onions and pickles on a roll and bon appetite. The meat quality is a glorified deep-fried hotdog.
This was a pretty gross sandwich. When people serve BBQ slathered in sauce, you need to ask yourself if the meat would taste good dry. If the meat would not taste good dry than you are eating garbage. What people enjoy in the McRib is the sauce. I personally do not like sweet/tangy sauces. I think God made sweet BBQ sauce for children who are picky eaters that need everything they eat to taste like candy. A grown ass man should not be eating sweet BBQ sauce.
Next time you are looking for a "BBQ sandwich." Spend the extra dollar and go to a BBQ joint and get a sandwich there. Even if the BBQ joint sucks, I guarantee it will be a better sandwich than the McRib.
McDonalds will be getting a generous score 0 out of 5 stars.
