Simple deli, clean and friendly. Sandwiches were delicious, generous portions. No alcohol, ice tea was refreshing. Just down the road from the National Military Park. Take out is an option here also.

McAlister's is a Mississippi-based chain that serves very good food--soups, salads, sandwiches, and over-stuffed potatoes. Huge iced teas (specify sweet or unsweet) with as many refills as you can drink! They're very nice about refills for the road. Very family friendly, fairly crowded after church on Sundays and often at lunch; but even with a crowd, there's not a long... More

It's difficult for those of us with wheat and tree nut allergies to find restaurants that provide gluten-free, allergen-free products. McAlister's does, and they don't charge extra for them! Yummy!

Been here several times now and it has been consistantly excellent. Wife loves the soups in the breadbowl while I love their French Dip Angus sandwich. The Potato Salad is as good as you can get in my opinion. Everything I've seen come out of their kitchen looks great! The service is great and the restaurant always clean and welcoming.... More

Met family after a function. Always enjoy the food. We didn't leave until after 11. Staff was most patient. We didn't realize restaurant had closed long before.

This is a great deli located near to the hotel that I stayed at during my time in Vicksburg. The staff is very helpful, the service is good and the food is excellent! It is reasonably priced and highly recommended.

We thought it was going to be an average chain serving quick lunch that's just edible and not much more. But I think we got the best sandwich lunch on our entire ten day trip here! The sides were great too, and no problem if you are quenched for thirst - the iced teas come in huge cups and refills... More

We had been on the road nearly three weeks and were passing through Vicksburg on our way home. Found this McAlister's and stopped in. I chose the half Big Nasty sandwich and the half salad with a big iced tea. Wow!!! Was it good! This McAlister's was nice and clean. Service was prompt and courteous. We would positively eat here...

We found this in the restaurant listings of our hotel. It was close by and we weren't in the mood for a large meal. We both had salads, soup, and sandwiches. Very good. Similar to Panera Bread chain near hoe in NJ
