Hard to believe it took so long for the McRib to make its way to Japan. McRib has been available in the US for 27 years.

More than 95 of 100 people who had watched 'Super Size me' stopped eating McDonald's.

Moderator: Stay on topic please. The documentary "Super Size Me" is not relevant to this discussion.

The movie "Supersize Me" was a fraud.

Check it out.

People continue to eat at McDonald's and life goes on. They're in all of the Wal-Mart's I go to, too.

Thank you, Wal-Mart.

Wonder why McD's doesn't come out with ramen or udon in Japan? In Hawaii, we've had "saimin" (Hawaii's version of ramen) for 20 years too.

The McRib is not new in Japan--it's been trotted out more than once, for a limited time, and they've also had the "McPork" sandwich.

Okapake-- And where's the spam and rice breakfast!?!?!?! :)

Still offered and a great breakfast. Also get Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice! With the Big Breakfast you get both meats!

I remember back in the early 90s that McDonald restaurants had to stop serving the McRib after nine incidents of contamination. Mice were being pressed into the patties.

McRib is the finest item McD offers. They just need to use more BBQ sauce and a little less mayo here. Don't know about the lemon sauce...

the McRib was ahead of its time, too bad they don't have it anymore in the states

I'd like to see McD bring back the Hotate Sando ( fried scallop sandwich ) - that was scrumptious! I had about a dozen or so of them over a 2-3 week period, and then they were gone, never to return!

I love the way McDonalds makes the ribs easier to eat by grinding up all the bones into the pattie.

I think Mcdonalds food is the worst thing you can possibly eat. it makes you fat, poisons your body, tastes awful and is far worse quality than it's minor competitors such as MOSBURGER, FRESHNESS BURGER,even LOTTERIA. dont eat it.

Go on and dig into your saucy love classics of the 80's, while munching down on a McRib...

I feel the McRib is more of a bun than anything. -these are actually very similiar to what kids get at school for lunch.

I like the McD Southwest Style Chicken biscuts with some honey added.

Didn't Mickie D's used to have a Mc-BLT or something like that? I think it was a burger laid out open-face style and you got to put your own lettuce, onion, etc... on it.

"Ron Burgundy: [picking his teeth] (McRibs). I had (McRibs) for lunch, that's why I'm doing this." --- Ron Burgundy, in reference to the McDonalds sandwich which will be available in Japan only in October.

If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me. Double McRib, get'er done!!!

Actually eating any fast food isnt that bad for you unless you live on them.. I think eating  焼肉 with 5 beers is most likely worse for you but we do it every Friday here:)

Mcrib is so proccesed but it is good to eat once and a while... I want a taco bell here now!!!!!!!!!

That was sold before, I think 5 or 6 years ago. Glad it's back. I wonder if it tastes the same though...

It was really the onions that made this sandwich epic. When I was young I always looked forward to McRib and Shamrock shakes!
