When it comes down to it, isn't life just the downtime between McRib promotions? The beloved limited-time-offer sandwich has reportedly begun making its return to the menu at certain Mcdonald's franchises.

But wait – Burger King is offering something it calls the BBQ Rib sandwich, and restaurants are offering it for about a third of what the McRib costs.

And that's not the only processed meat homage Burger King is making to its rival – the Big King, once a limited-time offer at Burger King, is now on the menu full time. It has two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce – all the same stuff as a Big Mac.

    Bid Mac's are good. Gotta have one every once in awhile... Not sure that BK can beat it. "Beat it" HA!

    I'm not fan of McDonald's. I used to almost like Burger King, but lately the quality of their food has unbelievably gone way, way down, what little quality they once had. I'm at the point now, where even if they handed me food for free, I might not eat it. I'd be very surprised if they were able to dethrone anyone at this point.

    Then again, I'm always surprised at what masses amounts of people will buy into, so who knows.

    Never had a Whopper or a Big Mac. Never plan to.

      No inches, no Whoppers or Big Macs? It's just so sad. *sniff*

    Problem with Burger Kings is consistency. One will be good and in another place they will be bad, at least McDonalds quality is consistent.

      lol. You said 'McDonald's' and 'Qualit'y in the same sentence.

    I have not been to a Burger King in over a decade. I'm gonna try their version of a nasty Big Mac but not the disgusting rib mess.

    Again? This isn't even food news. BK's been trying to unseat McD's since their inception.

      I always thought The King and Ronald were Lovers.

        They were at one time. But the King's big mask kept shoving Ronald's face in to the pillow, smearing his make-up. That was the end of that.
