Get hungry for some nostalgia, folks. Northside Yacht Club's infamous 'McRib' is returning for this weekend's patio and carry-out special.
Dubbed the "McDowell’s Smoked Ribwich BBQ sandwich" — and the vegan seitan barbecue sandwich for the non-meat eaters — the McDonald's McRib-inspired creation doesn't come around often, but when it does, it's worth a special visit (or several).
The meaty version is made with a smoked spare rib on a Cuban roll, slathered in house tangy barbecue sauce and topped with white onions and pickles. The meatless version is basically the same, but features housemade seitan as the protein. Both cost $12 and include fresh-cut fries.
