If you’re a fan of McDonald’s famous McRib sandwich, we have some good news. The fast-food chain is bringing back the popular sandwich at 9,000 locations across the United States.

People who love the McRib usually go crazy when they hear it’s back on the menu, as it only shows up sporadically, usually for a limited time and not at all locations. This time is no different, so don’t expect the McRib to be around forever. While it is around, however, it will also be available for delivery via Uber Eats from participating locations. If you’re wondering if the unique sandwich is available in your neck of the woods, McDonald’s has an official locator on its website.

The sandwich originally launched back in 1981, and it was last available in November 2017. If you’ve never had a McRib, it features seasoned boneless pork, barbecue sauce, onions and pickles on a hoagie-style bun.


“While McDonald’s has ushered in many new items this year — such as fresh beef* in our quarter-pound burgers — we know our fans love this limited time classic,” Mike Haracz, McDonald’s chef, said in a statement. “That’s why we wanted to bring the McRib to as many fans as possible this year. With the McRib also now available via McDelivery on Uber Eats, we’re excited to make it more accessible to customers with the speed and convenience they expect from McDonald’s.”

The return of the McRib comes on the heels of the introduction of the $6 Meal Deal, which includes a choice of Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Big Mac, 10-piece Chicken McNuggets or Filet-O-Fish with any size soft drink or sweet tea, small fries and an apple pie or seasonal pie for dessert. The deal begins for a limited time on Nov. 1 at participating locations nationwide.


The chain also recently introduced the launch of Triple Breakfast Stacks.

“We will continue to introduce things to our restaurants, because that’s what our customers expect,” McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook said during a call with industry analysts on Oct. 23.
