Usually McAlister's is our family's go to Deli when out of town and at soccer tournaments, and this weekend was no exception, but the experience was out of the norm. We should have known that we were going to have problems with the counter person told us that they were missing roast beef, pepper-jack cheese and a couple more items.... More

Two of us went here for lunch because it was close to our hotel. You order at the counter and they bring your meal to your table when it is ready. A large and varied menu of appetizing choices. Everything we had was good; the service was quick; the price was right. No complaints.

My husband was pleased with his sandwich had plenty of meat and very hearty. The restaurant was showing that it was not being bussed regularly as it was hard to find a clean... More

I had a great experience at this location, despite the fact that I am not at all a fan of their soups. The chili tasted like can chili. No veggies like onion or peppers. The chicken tortilla had very few bites of chicken and few veggies. However, management brought me a baked potato and made sure I was satisfied. I... More

Love McAlister's food. This McAlister's is in a mall. The line was long and moved fairly fast. After the wait and high recommendations to my friends, I was face to face with an employee with an attitude. After lunch, after shopping for a couple hours went back in to get something to drink and the attitude was still there. They... More
