McRib Fans of Amarillo Could You Have a New Go-To?
I know there is almost a cult like following when it comes to the McRib sandwich that McDonalds serves up every year. I don't get it. I tried to like it. I mean it's a cheap rib style meal. I tried and tried.
Every time I would order one just to see if my thoughts have changed over the years. I would have the same reaction. I am biting into this mushed up patty of meat. There is no semblance of a rib anywhere. I can look at it and see it is just processed meat. I don't get why so many people love it.
That being said as I was scrolling on Facebook yesterday I saw that Arby's was trying their hand at a new rib sandwich. I mean the picture actually looked like rib meat. So I had some kind of hopes on this one. So I thought yep, that was going to be my lunch yesterday.
Now I did not have the highest of hopes because I did order me a backup plan. I got a roast beef sandwich because one does not go to Arby's and not get some roast beef. I mean really.
I was, though, going to give the rib sandwich a try at least. According to their website here is a description of the sandwich:
Real Country Style Rib Sandwich. Hickory-smoked, low and slow, for over 8 hours in our East Texas smokehouse. Topped with melted Gouda cheese, crispy onions and smoky BBQ sauce.
I mean it sounds good. The picture I took really didn't do it justice. They never really do.
What got me is that the meat actually did look like ribs. It looked like they cut it off the bone. I am not saying they did but hey it gave me hope. I tried the rib sandwich and you know what it really wasn't half bad.
If I was in the mood for a rib sandwich I would probably hit up Tyler's BBQ first. If my plans were to swing by Arby's with family or friends and I really wanted some ribs I wouldn't regret ordering this again.
I definitely would go to this one any time over a McRib. Yes, I said it.
