Located inside of Harrahs casino, it was still very reasonably priced and had the same great food and tea.

The menu is a bit smaller than a normal McAllisters but the food was great and the service friendly. Everything we had was tastes and it was very close to our hotel. It is open late hours too.

Was gambling in Harrah's when I caught a whiff of something yummy. My daughter and I followed our noses, and ended up at McAlister's Deli. The menu looked great, but our hearts were set on a Muffaletta. We had never had one "anywhere" except at...More

This restaurant have poor service and bad food. Employees don't care and it is dirty. I am surprise they are still in business. You're better off going to McDonald's are any other fast food chain.

Best Casino food I ever had! Great prices and great to take back to hotel to save over room service costs! Fresh soups, chili, great sandwiches! By 32 ounce soda or iced tea here for $2.50, versus Starbucks 12oz. for $3.00.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
