Visited while passing thru St Joseph and discovered this Deli - broad menu choices and fast service. We chose the half sandwich and side option and our food was good. Prices are reasonable

Enjoyed the smoky pepper jack turkey and a side of mac & cheese. The sweet tea was excellent. The service was quick and friendly

Granny and myself again, trying different places. Granny ordered 1/2 BLT and potato soup with crispy bacon. I am not sure they have a grill, because the bacon was not crispy, more like made ahead and warmed up, Soup was very good. I had a taco salad which was very tasty, and a nice portion. They forgot to bring us... More

Always fresh and delicious. The Savannah salad is my go-to order. This is a nice alternative to fast food.

We were back at McAlister's Deli recently, and it reminded me how reliable it has become for a good meal and a good price. Lots of items on their menu, but I stayed with a favorite, the Memphian. It is smoked turkey, ham and roast beef, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, and spicy brown mustard on a multigrain baguette. My side... More

I've tried multiple items on their menu and haven't had one that I didn't like yet. There sweet tea is the best I've ever tasted and I go there regularly just to get one. The service is great.

McAlister's serves sandwiches that do not skimp on the meats or ingredients. The New Yorker is piled high and thick. The BLT has lots of bacon in each bite. Side dishes from fruit to hot soups, or simply chips, are available. The call in & pickup feature is ideal for a lunch break from a business. And their iced tea... More

My wife and I were traveling thru St. Joseph recently on a Friday night. We had driven 650 miles from Estes Park and wanted something resembling healthy food, quickly. McAlisters was just down the street from our hotel and fit what we were looking for. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly.

the sandwiches and mac and cheese are great.. but don't try to eat here during lunch or dinner rush tme. the order food lines are so slow and mostly because after you order the person has to fill up ice tea or other drink glasses for you before you leave the counter . this makes all the other folks wait...
