They have a great menu with lots of choices. The quality is good and the meals are big. We decided to go for a quick lunch on a very busy day - black Friday- but the service was fast. It was my first time there, but it won't be the last.

Had the French dip, very tender roast beef, great taste to the au jus, not too salty. Had the chef salad as a side. Son had tomato basil bisque, tasted that and wished I had ordered it. Thick, yummy soup. Mother was also with us and had the chicken enchilada soup and roast beef melt with horseradish sauce. Not for... More

What a shame this place is staffed so poorly. The food is exceptional. I had a French Dip and Chicken and Dumpling Soup. Both were excellent. For dessert, I had cheesecake with strawberry sauce and it was one of the best I have had. I was however summarily unimpressed with the service. Initially my order was taken fairly promptly if...

I was very hungry when i arrive after traveling since 4am. I went into this deli as it was next door to my hotel. They were very bust, but the line moved very fast as they are very efficient. The sandwich and soup i had was outstanding and i almost couldn't finish it all.

First time at a McAlister's and will not be our last. Loved all the choices that they had from soups, potatoes, sandwiches and pastas. The food was delicious!

I am in Indianapolis attending a conference and this deli was adjacent to my hotel. I walked in at noon and it was already crowded a good sign. The menu has a good variety of entrée size salads, sandwiches, soups and loaded baked potatoes. The sandwiches are accompanied by two sides of your choice and there are more upscale sides... More

My husband and I like to drop in here for a quick supper. The lines are long during lunch ( because of great blood and prices) so we prefer evenings. They are quick and gracious to split orders for us. The food is always presented nicely.

The long line moved quickly and the business meeting went smoothly. I have to say the food helped. The chicken tortilla soup was bitey and some extra chips were in order, but the Caesar salad and the bacon spud were perfect comfort food for meetings that could otherwise be less than ... comforting. I appreciate the peppy staff, too. Highly... More

I tried the New Yorker and found it packed with meat. I tried the pasta salad for a side and will not try that again. The sweet tea is as good as advertised.
