Visit: June 28, 2011
Everyone already knows what I think of McDonald’s, so I won’t bore you all about my thoughts all over again. What I will mention is that I wasn’t expecting to find myself here on this day, but unforeseen circumstances allowed me to test my curiosity.
There were two notable happenings during my visit to this location. The first thing that irritated me was the mother with her children and stroller who were ordering after me. My ice tea was waiting on the counter and this woman’s elbow was ever so close to knocking it down. She had no idea what she wanted and I was begging her (in my mind) to find another place to ponder. The second thing I noticed was the man, who only ordered a coffee, sitting in the dining area eating his non-McD’s lunch. I never knew they tolerated that.

This was the reason for my reluctant visit to this fast food giant. The McRib is a gimmick sandwich. It contains onions, pickles, a lot of sauce, and rib-like meat. I have a vague memory of having this years ago, but for the purpose of this “review,” it’s like it’s the first time. The thing about the McRib that I liked was the size. It’s not too big, nor is it too small. That’s where the general positive thoughts ended. The taste didn’t leave anything lasting in the memory category and I only had the darn thing 4 hours ago. The sauce is just too messy and required excessive napkin use. The meat, at the end, tried coming out, so I had to change my biting strategies. That caused me to finish the sandwich earlier than I wanted to. The inclusion of pickles and onions didn’t really add to my enjoyment whatsoever. Overall, this is a gimmick, meant to be tried once in a blue moon. So, been there, done that, almost got the t-shirt.
Do I really need to explain this to you?
