Staff writer

Fans of McDonald’s McRib sandwich will soon have an alternative.

Starting May 21, Miami-based Burger King will offer a Rib Sandwich as part of its new summer BBQ menu. Like the Mickey D’s sandwich, BK’s is a boneless rib patty with “sweet and tangy BBQ sauce….topped with sweet pickles and served on a warm toasted artisan style bun,” according to a press release.

Along with the rib sandwich, the BBQ menu includes a BBQ Chicken Salad, Memphis BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, Carolina BBQ Whopper Sandwich, Oreo Shake and Oreo Sundae.
