Staff not friendly. All chairs up on tables except for tiny section and they were still open for another 2 hours. Management should be more strict with staff. Service slow and sandwich just okay, not to mention staff member sweeping towards our table when eating. Needs improvements managerially!

The last two times I've dined here, the service has been painfully slow (over 20 minutes to get or food). Both times, there was only one person in line in front of us as we ordered baked potatoes with vegetable chili. To add insult to injury, the amount of chili on they add is decreasing significantly. To their credit, they... More

They make great sandwiches with a wide variety of choices. You need to line up to order and you are given a number. Someone will deliver the food to your table. Very busy so I assume many locals like this place. Gave a four because you needed to lineup to order. As a traveller I like to be pampered that... More

We were out running errands and decided to grab a bite for supper here. They have a great menu and the soups are delicious. Wish they still had their mac n cheese w grilled chicken, it was my favorite. We decided to splurge and ordered dessert and got the carrot cake. It's very yummy.

I first tried this chain a few years ago in Indiana...since then I look for them whenever I happen to travel. The food is amazing and the staff is super friendly and quick. The prices are decent, especially for the quality of food they offer. Everything tastes so fresh and they give big portions as well. I look forward to... More

Good food and good service. Close to hotels. Typical for a McAllister's. Interesting design for a McAs.

Walked in at 825 on a Friday night. We were greeted by the wait staff, and she patiently waited while we looked at the menu and decided what we wanted. After a long day of moving in, it was nice to have a friendly atmosphere. Our food was served promptly, and the manager even came by the table to ensure... More

Let me start by saying that the meal my wife and I ate was great. The sandwiches were correct and had great flavor, the house brewed tea was exceptional, and the sides were good. The only qualm I had was the $27 I paid for two sandwich meals and one drink (which cost $2 and change by itself with unlimited... More

We were visiting family and decided to have lunch at a familiar spot since we have McAlisters deli where we now live. The menu is the same so it tastes pretty much the same.

On 4/4/15, I called in an order for our family and was told it would be ready in 10 minutes. I arrived at the restaurant and stood at the carryout register for several minutes and neither of the two people working behind the counter acknowledged me and my young son. They glanced at us several times but never approached the... More
