You can't go wrong here. Every sandwich, salad, and soup I have ever tried here is really, really good. I am so glad this deli is a chain and that their standards are consistent from location to location, city to city. The salads are huge by the way.

Last time I visited this location, I got the New Yorker. It was loaded with pastrami and corned beef. I've never seen a sandwich piled that high. Strongly recommended!

I love the variation in menu and the great service. Of all the things on the menu I just can't get past the Reuben and potato salad.

Just not the greatest food. Rather strange ordering system but they deliver to your table. This is not a good choice for me.

It has been a while since we went to a McAlisters's and I was very pleasantly surprised. I knew they had good soups and sandwiches but heir menu was very extensive with good salads, pasta dishes and one of my favorites loaded potatoes with various choices. Very helpful staff and friendly. Even a small outside eating area.

Just wanted to thank the gentleman named Levi who took my order. After giving me my total I realized I'd left my wallet at home so he kindly waited for me to call home and get a credit card number so I could check out. Great restaurant with great employees!

We can't visit Lexington without making at least one trip to McAlister's Deli. Yeah, it's a chain. HOWEVER, this chain has the BEST tea on the PLANET. The food is consistently good as well. You can completely blow your diet there or you can be good to your diet goals and still enjoy great food. Either way, the food is... More

While the food is consistently acceptable the placement of your order is totally inefficient. If two or more people are dining together but paying separately each person must order then wait until the last person orders to begin paying for your food. Not sure why they can't multiple orders on the same ticket like Fazoli's. Oh well, just take your... More
