Anytime we're traveling north (from fla) we always check our route for McAlister's locations. This location is one of our most frequent stops, service is usually quick food is consistently good and their Iced Tea is true to southern tradition.

Quiet, clean and spacious restaurant. Music is not too loud. Very friendly service. Situated near the Columbiana Place Mall. Cashier was helpful in suggesting similar menu items since they didn't have exactly what I wanted. The service was fast and neat.

Ok, so I couldn't wait for my sandwich. I started with dessert, which was delicious. My girls got the flavored teas and thoroughly loved them. I had the Italian sub and it was also very tasty.
