The venerable barbecue sandwich will be available at more than 9,000 stores across the United States.

"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," McDonald's chef Mike Haracz said in the release. "That's why we wanted to bring the McRib to as many fans as possible this year."

The McRib has been on the McDonald’s menu off and on for the past 35 years. The boneless pork sandwich is covered in barbecue sauce and served with sliced pickles and onions on a hoagie-style bun.

The sandwich last appeared on the McDonald's menu last November. It will be available via McDelivery with Uber Eats at selected restaurants, the company said in its release.
