We stopped for lunch to try out this deli in Peoria. It was OK. Did not compare to the deli I frequent - hard to beat Arthur's Garden Deli / Dixon, IL - Service was fine - no complaints. Average

I visit this location about once a month and am consistently satisfied by my meal. The choose 2 menu lets you enjoy smaller portions of 2 items. My every time 1st choice is the southwest chicken salad, which has corn, avocado, and a tangy dressing on the side. I've enjoyed the wraps, sandwiches, salads, and baked potatoes and would go...

Best brewed iced tea. A variety of foods between potatoes dressed with a variety of toppings. Soup, salad and sandwiches. Very nice employees and manager. Today I bought a gallon of this famous tea to take home. They will fill a gallon with whichever tea you desire! Great place and great atmosphere.

The food is always good here! The staff are always friendly. The meals are served promptly. The restaurant is always clean. My friends and I hang out and talk after eating and we are never pressured to leave.

My fiance had never been to McAlisters before so we thought we would try it out for him. It was AMAZING! The workers were so friendly, food came out in decent time, and it was so delicious. My fiance said it was the best turkey club he had ever had. Very clean restaurant.

I have enjoyed a sandwich or two from here but the tea which was made famous via the movie Sweet Home Alabama? The tea is sometimes good and sometimes not, though their deserts & cookies are awesome and the sandwiches are good depending upon what you order. Haven't had an inkling to return lately, sweet tea disappointment is not good... More
