Very clean, extremely nice and courteous staff! I purchased the 1/2 sandwich & soup meal. I got the French dip which was bland unfortunately and cup of chicken tortilla. The soup was good but beware it has a kick to it, as it is a bit spicy. I tried the sweet tea, as it had so many rave reviews. It... More

McAlister's motif looks like fast food, but tastes home-made; it seems off the beaten path but is just a block off of University Drive; the parking looks crowded but there is parking all the way around the building. I guess I am saying, give this place a try. The food is good but there is usually a line at lunchtime.... More

The club sandwich and sweet tea made an easy lunch for us while we were in Huntsville. The restaurant was clean, the service friendly, the food was fresh and very good. We order in one afternoon and carry out another. It is just good, solid deli food. A clear winner over the bread co. down the road & less expensive... More

We had dinner there this evening and it was my first visit since coming to Huntsville. The food was very good with lots of menu choices. Their sweet tea was the BEST!

I admit....of visiting McAlister's in a dozen cities......, and receiving the IDENTICAL sandwich and condiments in each location. Their rueben is by far superior to most other restaurants and their potato salad is fantastic.

They have very good sandwiches here. It gets a little crowded during peak hours like for lunch and dinner but the sandwiches are worth a little wait.

Thank Hugh C
