“AVOID - Total rip off!!!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Don't bother. Worst of the chain. Gave them feedback after the terrible visit and IF they had truly cared at all, they would have reimbursed instead of inviting me back knowing I won't drive 60 plus miles to try them again. Hot sandwich was cold, but instant potatoes were hot. The sweet tea was druggy and not sweetened at all, making it undrinkable and the $1.79 charge and tax not refunded after it was replaced with a glass of water while waiting on the food. Individual appraoched as I was leaving and weakly said she could get me something else after I had waited 20 minutes for this mess and paid more than $10 for a serving of hot instant potatoes. As a retiree who often takes day long shopping trips with groups of friends, this is defintely a place to AVOID. Extremely sorry chain that doesn't care any more about their customers.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Nothing here stands out. OK, the sweet tea is really good. I used to go to McAlisters in Memphis before they went chain and added too many things to the menu. Still the value is decent and some of the sandwiches are creative and the giant potatoes are usually good.

“Go here for the tea”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

The food here is just okay, but the sweet tea is divine. Usually, if I am desperate for food, I'll get the grilled chicken caesar wrap with, of course, a tea. They even have a tea punch card, so you'll get a free one after you've bought so many.

“Great sandwiches but slow service”
Reviewed 11 September 2009

I stopped to get a quick meal to take to my hotel room after traveling on the road for hours. The restaurant was not busy but it seemed to take forever to get my sandwich. The help was moving in slow motion. But my sandwich was delicious so I guess it was worth it.
