I had the potato w/ grilled chicken and cheese. Good G/F option. No cross contamination here. Would like to try one of the salads the next time.

Our family loves to eat here after church on Sundays. There is often a long line to order but it moves quickly and the food usually comes out pretty fast. My husband loves it because kids eat free with their parents on Sunday. The food is consistent so we know what we are getting. I have also used them to... More

I've been coming to this place since I was a little girl. In the past couple years they have reduced portion sizes to almost half what they used to give but price has stayed the same if not risen. The young staff are not friendly. They do not come around often anymore to ask for refills. They also NEVER get... More

The menu sounds great but the food is slow to get and flavorless. Some items have very skimpy portions. I just don't go there any more.

A very close friend's father passed away. We used McAlister's to send catering to their house. We could not have been more pleased with the service!

This is the worst McAlister's we have ever been to - frequently, the food takes too long to prepare and is of inferior quality, or the order is wrong. Tonight, my husband called in an order, was told it would be ready in 30 min, which is longer than it should take. It actually took closer to an hour. The... More

I don't know who the manager is but the franchise definitely needs to step-in at this location. This place appears to be run by teenagers who could care less about helping customers. In fact, they act like having to stop chatting to actually take a customer's order is a huge inconvenience. Don't worry we won't inconvenience them again. We'll go... More

We moved to Madison 6 months ago. We frequented the mcalisters from our previous location almost once a week and were very happy. We moved here and have been disappointed with the service at this location. I frequently place call in orders and That experience has been horrible. They either don't answer the phone period or keep me on hold... More

When McAlister's first came to Madison it was wonderful! We would go often. We frequently would call in for take out. In the last year, the quality has gone down in every way. The service stinks most of the time. Younger adults with no work ethic. Take out orders NEVER have everything needed. I have complained in person and over... More

This McAlisters really needs to work on their service, if a certain member of management is not there, it is unbelievably poor service, food is the average fare found at a McAlisters.
