Was looking forward to lunch here for a cold day, with some soup and salad. We placed our order and after 20 minutes j asked a server to check on our food, he said he would and never came back. When he walked by and I asked him again, he just said we are really busy, I'm sorry, they are... More

Two of us went here for lunch because it was close to our hotel. You order at the counter and they bring your meal to your table when it is ready. A large and varied menu of appetizing choices. Everything we had was good; the service was quick; the price was right. No complaints.

We visited for lunch. I had the vegetarian spud which was just ok. The potato was not fresh having that "been in the oven too long' taste. My husband was pleased with his sandwich had plenty of meat and very hearty. The restaurant was showing that it was not being bussed regularly as it was hard to find a clean... More

I had a great experience at this location, despite the fact that I am not at all a fan of their soups. The chili tasted like can chili. No veggies like onion or peppers. The chicken tortilla had very few bites of chicken and few veggies. However, management brought me a baked potato and made sure I was satisfied. I... More

Love McAlister's food. This McAlister's is in a mall. The line was long and moved fairly fast. After the wait and high recommendations to my friends, I was face to face with an employee with an attitude. After lunch, after shopping for a couple hours went back in to get something to drink and the attitude was still there. They... More
