My first visit to McAlister's Deli only having quickly viewed their menu online and saw they received a health dept rating of 100%. Great alternative to all the mega fast food presence in that shopping area. Checked it out and atmosphere was a sit-down deli....More

Sometimes lunch can get pricey especially trying to eat healthy. But most importantly if I get treated with great service, a smile, and awesome human interaction it makes me day.

Pick 2 is a great deal. Lots of food for $7 plus drink and tax. Tea is fresh, prefer unsweetened. They'll serve with slice of lemon the size of Texas.

When we went everything was great. Service was friendly and fast. Food was hot and fresh. The only thing we didn't like was their sweet tea. It is not near sweet enough. Locations in Texas where we recently moved from had way more sugar in...More

Service was quick and courteous. Nice selection of salads, sandwiches, and soup. Meals were prepared quickly so minimal wait time. Veggies were fresh and tasty. Tried Mango Tea for the first time, not a fan. Plenty to eat in a nice clean surrounding.

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.
