Perhaps looking to cash in on the success of McDonald’s iconic McRib sandwich, Subway gives the Golden Arches a kick to the ribs with the launch of the new BBQ Rib sandwich at select locations.
The BBQ Rib Sandwich features a boneless pork rib patty topped with BBQ sauce, pickles, onions and lettuce on your choice of bread.
You can pick up a 6-inch at participating locations for a suggested price of $3.49.
It’s my understanding that the BBQ Rib Sandwich is currently available at select locations in southern states. Drop me a note if you happen to come across it in other regions and I’ll circle back to this post and update with sightings.
While Subway has periodically offered a similar BBQ Rib sandwich in local markets in the past, the latest incarnation is supposedly totally reimagined and new.
Here’s a Subway commercial for a BBQ Rib sandwich from almost 2 decades ago back in 1999:
