“Good Place for Lunch”
Review of McAlister's Deli

McAlister's Deli
Ranked #40 of 318 Restaurants in South Bend
Cuisines: Deli
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 July 2017

McAlister's is across the street from the Notre Dame main campus, perhaps a ten or fifteen minute walk from the Morris Hotel or the east side of campus. You can eat outside or inside.

When you go in, you line up before a counter and can discuss your choices with the staff, who are helpful and courteous. The selection is not really what I would call "delicatessen," but it is a pretty decent imitation in a city that has never struck me as cosmopolitan. The dishes are well prepared and the quantity of food is more than adequate: we took half our lunch home with us. In such a city as Chicago, or such a university town as Ann Arbor, I would rank McAlister's slightly above average, because there is more competition for the feinschmecker trade (people who are fussy about their food and then consume immense quantities). This was a pleasant experience and I recommend it in preference to any of the lunch places on the ND campus.

Met a friend here for lunch on a recent trip. Located in an area of new shops next to Notre Dame. The parking garage is free for the first two hours. Had the Spud Ole, very generous serving. The menu has a variety of items. Order at the counter and they bring to the table. We sat and talked for over 2 hours and was never made to feel we had overstayed our welcome.

Ate here for lunch. Crowded but was served without much of a wait. Food was great and not 599 expensive.

Very good food selection. Good value and great place to grab a quick lunch.
The portion are fairly reasonable and the menu is very versatile with soups, salads, sandwiches, and wraps.

We just shared a Club Sandwich, Potato Salad and an Oatmeal Cookie. All 3 were very good. Cute little place with a friendly staff. Prices weren't bad, about $10 for above food. Worth a try.
