Had to opportunity to enjoy a boxed lunch outside of the restaurant during a work event. The Turkey Bacon Ranch Club was a tightly rolled wheat tortilla with plenty of turkey, bacon, lettuce, ranch, cheese and tomato. Box came with a small bowl of fruit, a sugar cookie, drink, chips and a pickle. I did not leave hungry, that's for... More

Food is good, sizes are big enough to keep you satisfied. Service is good and seating is very comfortable when choosing a booth. Bathrooms are clean and prices are affordable.

McAlisters is your typical large deli. Order at the counter, head to your table to wait for your food. Large menu of sandwiches are available - both hot and cold. Soup and sandwich combos also available for lunch. I had the Southwest Chicken panini. Crisp on the outside, warm and tasty on the inside. My only critique is the lack... More

Ordered the Reuban sandwich which was large and delicious. Corn beef was packed in and had no fat at all. Special drink was lime flavored lemonade which came in large glass with free refills.

I had the Bacon Spud. It was ok. Large potato with not enough topping. Two potatoes and two drinks was over $18. Overpriced for what you get.

I ordered the New Yorker. It had tons of meat on it. Could have had more mustard. The chips were stale. You would think a Deli with this much business would have fresh chips.

My wife and I must have hit this deli on a bad day. Very mediocre sandwiches for the expensive price. Took our daughter out to eat for lunch. I had chicken salad, she had tuna salad. Both on croissants. When I picked up my croissant, it broke into a third. There was a little "salad" on this portion. All the... More

McAlister's serves medium quality food at inflated prices. Although they have a large selection, they don't have a great selection. A simple sandwich with a side of chips was about $10 without the drink. I would rather spend less and get more/higher quality food at Chipotle. Also, manager woman was rude.

We arrived with a large group and had called ahead to make sure they could accommodate us. They were very cooperative and had a large enough table for our group when we arrived. However, the line was long and the registers were inconsistently manned. It appeared that they did not have anyone committed to running a register despite the fact... More
