McDonald’s McRib Is Back Today, December 2, 2020

The McDonald’s McRib is back today, December 2, 2020, at participating restaurants. This is the first time the McRib has debuted since 2012.

Saucy, tangy, tender, and shamelessly delicious… the McRib is the sandwich fans anxiously await all year.

That’s right… for a limited time, McRib regulars and “first-timers” across the country can soon get in on the McRib magic with seasoned boneless pork slathered in smoky, tangy barbecue sauce, topped with slivered onions and tart pickles. It’s a combination so tantalizing it has longtime enthusiasts declaring, “I need it,” and the McRib-curious saying, “Why the heck not?”

“The McRib has been a beloved menu item at McDonald’s since its inception nearly 40 years ago,” said Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen.

“There’s nothing quite like the taste of the McRib. To our customers, it’s become more than a delicious, saucy moment… it’s a season, and it’s taking the internet by storm. That’s why this year, we’re proud to serve the McRib nationwide for everyone to enjoy.”

The McRib made its national debut at McDonald’s in 1982, and today it’s one of the most anticipated, limited-time menu items offered around the world. Customers in Germany are lucky enough to enjoy the sandwich year-round.

How To Get A Free McRib

McDonald’s is giving away a FREE McRib to the first 10,000 entries from fans who show their clean-shaven face. Beard or no beard, prepare for the McRib with a shave—or even a facial mask—because anyone can participate, from your brother to your mother, sister-in-law or cousin’s roommate.

Just post a picture of your cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on your public Twitter or public Instagram profile using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds. Sorry, no Stories!

The first 10,000 entries will receive a code for a free McRib, available via McDelivery with Uber Eats, while supplies last.

“Our bearded fans know… facial hair and the McRib just don’t mix—believe me, I’ve tried,” said Vice President of U.S. Communications, David Tovar.

“With the nationwide return of the McRib, we’re helping fans enjoy every delectable moment by encouraging them to shave for a chance to win a free McRib. And we’re excited this year to partner with No-Shave November, a charity that knows a thing or two about facial hair.”
