When we came in there were very few customers. Staff is nice and food is standard McAllister's fair. The problem is how dirty the tables, booths and floors were. It looked as if there had been a large group of toddlers running around dropping food....More

McAlister's is an after church favorite of ours. Even with a long line service is excellent. Take your number to your table and shortly the food arrives. They are known for their ice tea and they deserve that recognition as it is great tea.

Fast Service & Good Sandwich. Prices are average to slightly high, BUT plenty of extra meat on Sandwich makes it a real good value !!!

Enter a line to order, find your table and the food is brought to you. Reasonably priced and always good. Sandwich's are their mainstay but don't overlook their huge backed potatoes. You will try to figure out how they obtain such large potatoes but the...More

My family and went to McAllister's for dinner and my food was disappointing. I ordered the "Pick Two" and asked for the French Dip sandwich with a cup of squash soup. The soup was cold and too sweet. The French dip sandwich was kinda funny....More

Home of hand-crafted sandwiches, always fresh salads, giant stuffed spuds and our Famous Sweet Tea. It's always better to give. And at McAlister's, we give as much as we can, including free refills, big portions and big smiles. It's easy to be giving when you're a giver by nature. And we're givers. So as soon as you step through our doors, you can relax and expect to get a little more. Whether it's getting free refills on your sweet tea without ever leaving your seat or being served portions always a bit bigger than your appetite, giving you more of what you like is what we like to do. That's why you'll always be treated like an old friend and be greeted with a warm smile even if we just met.
