My sub tasted very good, the roast beef was very tender juicy, and enjoyable. The macaroni and cheese was very cheesy even had cheese coming off of my fork that's how much cheese was in it which I liked very much. Will visit here soon again in the future.

We visit McAlister's on a regular basis. Their menu is vast and excellent. The food and salads are prepared fresh and in a timely manner. Like many service food locations they have a large employee turnover and getting your order placed can sometimes take a while, but your order always comes out correct and delicious.

Lunch was delightful, as was the Turkey Reuben, and bowl of soup. Staff is polite, efficient, and place is kept clean. Wife had their chili, and we split her sandwich which was very good. We'll definitely be back.

We were very happy to accidentally stumble on this Deli in Ocala. Being from N.Y. & South Florida, we've never found a deli here (other than Too Jays average food all over) so we know good deli's. Wow! First we were very impressed how spotless this place was. The guy preparing in the back was even wearing a hair net!... More

Great selection of sandwiches and salads. Or you can make your sandwich anyway you like. They also make a great sweet tea.

The food and service are consistently good here. The portions are quite large and can easily be shared. The NY Reuben is my favorite sandwich and the stuffed potatoes are so good. The staff here is always friendly and helpful. One of our favorite lunch spots in Ocala.

My husband and I enjoy lunch at this popular deli. While not to be compared with a New York deli, this eatery holds its own with its gigantic spuds filled with cheese and broccoli and oversize sandwiches.

This is a chain with great food. They have a Patio that is dawg friendly. We stopped by and found food that was great. The Server did not want to have her picture taken because she said she wastired and not presentable, bur she does know the optimum selections.
