One fast food restaurant is waging a rib sandwich war.

This Thursday, Burger King plans to unveil its new summer menu. One offering is expected to be the new BK Rib Sandwich.

Burger King hopes its rib sandwich can take on McDonald's popular McRib sandwich, which is only available at certain times.

The BK Rib Sandwich will debut at Burger King next week, but only for a limited time.
