Had a half Rueben and a great salad. The greens were extremely fresh and the dressing was tangy and a good compliment. The sandwich was good, but not great. The bread could've been grilled a bit more and it would've held up a bit better....More

Came in at lunchtime and it waass very busy, which in itself is a good sign. Service could have been faster. The menu and the food quality was excellent.

This is a sandwich shop. This is not a good value sandwich shop nor is it an establishment which provides good sandwiches. If there was nowhere else to go then perhaps I would return but really it is not fantastic nor is it fantastic value...More

Mc Alister's has a great variety on their menu. Everything that I have had here has always been very good. If you get a table near the window, you get a great view of the park area in front of UNC Chapel Hill.........nice view.

There's a large selection, including a few vegetarian options. It would be nice if there was more outdoor seating. The staff is very nice and the soft drinks and huge.

Have now been to Mc Alister's four times. Good selection of salads and sandwiches. Have never been disappointed. Great food and priced well. Love the sweet tea too!

Large menu selection. The baked potatoes and salads are huge. You can almost get two meals out of one. Service was excellant. Would definitely recommend.

We had so many fun weekend lunches grabbing sandwiches for the family and walking across the street to eat them on the UNC campus. Bring a football to toss and prepare for family fun! The view of the UNC campus from upstairs is superb.

I love their selections but I always want more for the money. Nothing bad but nothing outstanding either. Good place to go with a group. Everyone can find something to make them happy.
