This place has amazing club sandwich and spuds. I had spud max and it was good. The deserts were good also. The pick 2 special is an awesome deal.

We don't have this chain where I am from (Midwest) and man, I wish we did! Lots of options for all kinds of tastes. Love that they have a large kid-friendly menu, too.

We went to McAlisters Deli for lunch. The place was clean, the staff was very friendly and cheerful, and the food was delicious. We ordered the club and it was amazing. It is our favorite of their sandwiches. We always look forward to eating there.

We went for a quick fairly light meal. Veggie Chili and a plain spud with veggies. Their spuds are always large and very good. The service was great and the young lady was very helpful and kind. Nice atmosphere.

We come here often because it's always great food and the staff is wonderful. Today we had the half-and-half (broccoli cheddar soup & half a Ruben) and the New Yorker. Both were fantastic. Definitely recommend and definitely will return.
