I've tried multiple items on their menu and haven't had one that I didn't like yet. There sweet tea is the best I've ever tasted and I go there regularly just to get one. The service is great.

My wife and I were traveling thru St. Joseph recently on a Friday night. We had driven 650 miles from Estes Park and wanted something resembling healthy food, quickly. McAlisters was just down the street from our hotel and fit what we were looking for. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly.

the sandwiches and mac and cheese are great.. but don't try to eat here during lunch or dinner rush tme. the order food lines are so slow and mostly because after you order the person has to fill up ice tea or other drink glasses for you before you leave the counter . this makes all the other folks wait...

If you're looking for a relaxing experience, do not go to McAlister's Deli! From the long lines to the busyness within the dining room, I was ready to go back to work after our lunch! At a very busy time, there were only two taking orders up front. After we found our table and sat down, we felt very "in... More

I am very disappointed that I didn't even get to try the food due to the service. After standing in line for several minutes on a limited time availability, the girl looked right at me when it finally came my turn to order and said she had to make more tea and just walked expecting me to wait for her...
