I enjoyed an early dinner at this restaurant. The manager was attentive and I found just what I was looking for with a large salad with grilled chicken. The salad was fresh and tasty.

great fast casual option. Similar to Panera's in its offering of soup, salads, sandwiches, wraps etc. Made fresh while you wait. Seating in or take out available.

It has been a while since I have visited this restaurant chain. The food was still tasty and the service was fine. It was not crowded on our visit, and service was quick. We had sandwiches, but the soups and queso are good as well. And don't forget the sweet tea!

We eat frequently at McAllister's Deli. I always order a Ruben, potato salad, and broccoli cheese soup. Delicious with great customer service.

McAlister's Deli in Pelham (the one I visit most) has great quality sandwiches. My favorite is the Orange Cranberry Club. From time to time I will splurge on their brownie; it is one of the best, absolutely delicious.

We arrive shortly after noon for a quick lunch. I've enjoyed McAlister's many times but it's been awhile since I've been to this one. We walked in and there were a couple people in line ahead of us. Another registered opened to get everyone served quickly. I appreciate the wait staff checking on the amount of customers standing in line... More

I was traveling with friends. We stopped because we heard the iced tea was great here. It is. I enjoyed the turkey Reuben on rye. Everyone had an enjoyable meal.
