I picked up lunch from McAlister's this month and truly enjoyed it. The service was great, the food fresh and the order was perfect! The menu has changed over the years but the quality of the food has remained the same.

My colleagues and I love the healthy fare at McAlister's. They offer good food at reasonable prices. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is often crowded, though, and is sometimes difficult to find a parking spot.

My favorite dish at Mc Alister's Deli is the baked potato with chicken. It's not the cheapest place to eat, but the potato is huge and delicious. The iced tea is top notch as well.

Stopped in here for an early dinner and was impressed with the selection and taste of the food. Soup was hot delicious and had a chicken wrap sandwich that actually had lots of chicken in it!!! Would highly recommend this deli for lunch or dinner.
