The tea and baked potato topped with grilled chicken is pretty good , kind of pricey but the food was hot and fresh.

Located inside of Harrahs casino, it was still very reasonably priced and had the same great food and tea.

The menu is a bit smaller than a normal McAllisters but the food was great and the service friendly. Everything we had was tastes and it was very close to our hotel. It is open late hours too.

Was gambling in Harrah's when I caught a whiff of something yummy. My daughter and I followed our noses, and ended up at McAlister's Deli. The menu looked great, but our hearts were set on a Muffaletta. We had never had one "anywhere" except at the Central Grocery, but decided to give this one a try. It was delicious !!

This restaurant have poor service and bad food. Employees don't care and it is dirty. I am surprise they are still in business. You're better off going to McDonald's are any other fast food chain.

Another great little eatery inside of Harrah's Casino, McAlister's Deli serves of fantastic sandwiches! The French Dip may just be my favorite, but I should probably try them all one more time... in the interest in true disclosure.

Best Casino food I ever had! Great prices and great to take back to hotel to save over room service costs! Fresh soups, chili, great sandwiches! By 32 ounce soda or iced tea here for $2.50, versus Starbucks 12oz. for $3.00.

This is a great stop to have a club sandwich. We order the McAlister Club Sandwich when we come. You get the sandwich and chips (not a lot of selections). What I dislike is that a drink is not included and all the drinks are the same size, large. This place is located in Harrah's Casino.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
