McDonald's beloved boneless barbecue pork sandwich is back yet again.

McDonald's Corp. announced Monday that the McRib will be returning, this time nationwide through Nov. 14, reported the Star Tribune.

This is the second year in a row that the McRib has returned in all U.S. restaurants at the same time, reported the Orange County Register. They usually show up at randomly at restaurants at all different times of the year.

Sales usually spike when the McRib returns because of it's popular demand, reported the Orange County Register.

The sandwich came about in 1982, reported the Star Tribune. It's dressed with pickled, onions, and barbecue sauce.

One McRib lover created a website solely dedicated to finding McRib locations across the country, reported the Orange County Register.

So, why not offer it all the time?

"Bringing it back every so often adds to the excitement," said Marta Fearon, McDonald's U.S. marketing director, reported the Star Tribune.
