Where had this place been all my life. Great food, good quality and large portions, what more can you ask for! We got a couple of sandwiches and some hot sides. All were good. We also got the potato soup and the parmesan kale which was decent.

Mcallister's turn out a reliably good Taco Salad. Portion size is good, produce is fresh, and the taco meat is tasty.

Good choice for quick deli type food. Had a New Yorker... about two inches thick of pastrami and corned beef with cheese. I've had Reubens there and like them better. The parmesan and kale soup is tasty. The Chicken and dumplings soup could be a little hotter (as in temperature), but yummy comfort style. Servers take order at counter, but... More

They have a great menu with lots of choices. The quality is good and the meals are big. We decided to go for a quick lunch on a very busy day - black Friday- but the service was fast. It was my first time there, but it won't be the last.

Had the French dip, very tender roast beef, great taste to the au jus, not too salty. Had the chef salad as a side. Son had tomato basil bisque, tasted that and wished I had ordered it. Thick, yummy soup. Mother was also with us and had the chicken enchilada soup and roast beef melt with horseradish sauce. Not for... More

What a shame this place is staffed so poorly. The food is exceptional. I had a French Dip and Chicken and Dumpling Soup. Both were excellent. For dessert, I had cheesecake with strawberry sauce and it was one of the best I have had. I was however summarily unimpressed with the service. Initially my order was taken fairly promptly if...

I was very hungry when i arrive after traveling since 4am. I went into this deli as it was next door to my hotel. They were very bust, but the line moved very fast as they are very efficient. The sandwich and soup i had was outstanding and i almost couldn't finish it all.

First time at a McAlister's and will not be our last. Loved all the choices that they had from soups, potatoes, sandwiches and pastas. The food was delicious!

I am in Indianapolis attending a conference and this deli was adjacent to my hotel. I walked in at noon and it was already crowded a good sign. The menu has a good variety of entrée size salads, sandwiches, soups and loaded baked potatoes. The sandwiches are accompanied by two sides of your choice and there are more upscale sides... More
