We were here for the Rod Run, and decided to eat here because it is close to our hotel and where our cars were parked. I love their half orders (half a sandwich and soup).

I was always a fan of these places when we lived in Mississippi but we don't have many in Tennessee, my son, his wife and 2 year went along with us for dinner somewhere, we were starved so we couldn't handle a 45 minute minimum wait. I saw the sign and suggested McAllister's this turned out to be a fantastic... More

I'm a long time customer of McAlisters on Turkey Creek in Farragut TN and the Acloa TN store. The food has always been good but with their last menu update it got even better. The food is excellent and the portions are reasonable. I now think the food is better than Panera which I used to frequent. The one disappointing... More

We ran in around noon for lunch on our way running around. The menu is fairly long so be prepared. I had the max baked potato and it covered the whole plate. It had black olives, bacon, sour cream, cheese on it. Butter also came on the side. It was filling and good. They do have soups of the day.... More

However the parking is a challenge, there's a lot of businesses in the strip mall and not enough parking, we had to circle the... More

I recently enjoyed a Cuban sandwich. I was impressed. Whenever I travel to FL. I partake in Cuban sandwiches. They differ from place to place, but I have never been disappointed. The Cuban at McAllister's is among the best I have had. I just sincerely hope, it was not an exception to the rule. It was loaded with meat, and... More
