Probably the most infamous menu item to grace the Golden Arches has got to be the McRib Sandwich. Every year upon its release, fans come from far and wide to sink their teeth into the barbecue sauce-slathered sandwich.

Now, for the first time in eight years, the McRib is getting a nationwide release.

The sandwich features a boneless pork patty covered in a smoky, tangy barbecue sauce and topped with slivers of onion and two pickles.

For the past eight years, the McRib has been a regional item, and fans would have to travel to select locations to get their fix.

With the nationwide release, that will no longer be the case. McDonald’s fan can find the McRib on menus beginning Dec. 2, 2020.
