This restaurant is pretty reliable for a good lunch, although there are a few items I steer away from - salmon for one. The potatoes are enormous, but tasty, and the salads are always fresh. Soup selections vary daily and some are excellent, others not great. They DO have the best iced tea anywhere!

They offer salads, sandwiches and some soups. And they have extended their menu to have some hot dishes. People love their tea and lemonade. Their tea does have body and... More

As a visitor to Memphis, my family took me to McAlisters near Poplar for dinner. I had the pick 2 with broccoli cheese soup and Savannah chopped salad. The soup was good and the salad outstanding.

McAllister's has a great variety of sandwiches, salad and baked potatoes. I'm partial to their Savannah chopped salad. They have great sweet ice! Worth checking out.

This is a typical McAlister's. The food and prices are like any other you may have visited. I was a little disappointed in the baked potato, not much taste.

My wife and I enjoyed the food and we were pleased with the selection. We stopped for lunch and had a salad and sandwich. The food was quick and good. We enjoyed the free ice cream cone for desert.
