Good food, quick when you need to get in and out. Staff there for refills so you don't have to go looking for them.

Quick service. Very pleasant staff. They had quite a variety. Everyone in our party had something different, and everyone was in agreement that everything was delicious.

I've been to a bunch of different McAlister's and this one is pretty standard. The food is good, the price is alright, the service is okay, and they have plenty of seating. If you've been to any other McAlister's then you know what to expect here.

I love the food at McAlisters but recently after waiting 15 minutes at an empty restaurant. My food finally came out with these words "your order got lost in the kitchen". I said I guess so! I'll still go back because of the quality of the food.
