Travelers, usually a Great place to eat near hotels. First of all the Sandwich a Pepper Jack Turkey sand is OUTSTANDING!!! Now for the problem the side dish, Cole Slaw, is not even 1/2 full! Seriously!!! I guess for $10.00 that is to much to ask.

Did carry out- half Savannah Salad & half Cranberry Club. Delicious! Love the new look and feel of the recent remodel. Even the employees seemed more attentive and friendlier.

Perfect lunch spot. My favourite is 1/2 a sandwich with a cup of soup and wonderful ice tea. Fast and friendly service.

McAlister's Deli is on Cowhorn Creek Road, just north of Interstate 30. It's close to the Christus St. Michael Hospital, and the Collum and Carney Clinic. It's also close to several motels, such as the Courtyard by Marriott. Other restaurants nearby are Steak'n'Shake, Red Lobster, Cracker Barrel, Ta Molly's and Larry's Pizza. I like how McAlister's has a big menu.... More

For a restaurant chain that has been in operation for so long, I'm surprised that the quality of food in McAllister's keep deproving. Service is great, but you can't serve cold chili and skimp on salad dressing (when we specifically asked for extras).

Conveniently located near Christus St Michaels Hospital, McAlister's is a great dining option if cafeteria food isn't your thing. The sandwiches are good and essentially on par with most chain delis. Staff are friendly and welcoming. They are well known for their brewed tea. AVOID the chicken and dumplings. Got this item last time and it was this weird, congealed,... More

The service is always fast and friendly. The tea is the best in town. There are a lot of choices on the menu but to me, the best one is "the big nasty." It is fantastic.

Oh Yea! One of my favorite lunches ... just 1/2 of a baked potato. If you want two meals or a meal-to-share order the whole potato. Don't know where they get these Texas-sized potatoes, but they are HUGE! and lots of choices for toppings. I have also ordered the soup & salad bar and this is also very good with... More

Needs updating. Puddled water in the bathroom that had obviously been there for a while. Spoons were dirty so asked for a clean one and got another dirty one. I love McAlisters but this one was very dirty.

Arrived in town after a long drive through torrential downpours. We were damp from the rain and a bit chilled. McAlister's Deli has an extensive menu. This particular day the Chicken Tortilla Soup spoke to me. I ordered a bowl or this piping hot deliciousness. They had an option for a bread bowl but I passed. The soup was delivered... More
