The mac & cheese was cold & bland. Autumn soup cold, baked potatoes cold. Ruben sandwiches cold. $86 later we came home & heated up the Rubens. Service was good but food terrible!

We have a McAlisters that is really good where we live and stopped here on our way into town for an easy lunch. The orders came out slowly, incorrectly and after leaving I discovered I was overcharged for the kids meal. Bread was slightly stale....More

As a walkin', ordered the Ham & Cheese Toastie & California Turkey Reuben to go. Sandwiches were prepared in a timely manner, were as ordered and they were both tasty. We would definitely return to this McAlisters in the future if in the area.
