This time of year is my favorite at McAllister's. They always have I teresting sandwiches an soups but squash soup is my favorite! They are also just walking distance away from my house. So, on a crisp fall evening, there is nothing better than a walk, soup and sandwich and a walk home on a lovely evening!

My family and I have eaten at this restaurant dozens of times. The menu is vast, food is delivered to the table quickly, and employees are quick to refill your drinks; they also stop by a couple of times to see if you need anything else. We live the spuds! Giant, tummy baked potatoes!

They have good sandwiches served in a clean, comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Lots of good choices. I especially like the California Reuben. My husband favors a Turkey Club. Always fresh ingredients and moderately priced.

In town visiting family and ate here on their recommendation. So glad we did. Instead of eating at another fast food joint we tried Mc Alister's. There is a nice variety of hot & cold sandwiches, soups and salads. Portions are a good size and our party of eight all had nothing but good things to say about their food... More

Never been to McAlister's but the wife raved about it. We ordered the new yorker and the french dip with chicken tortilla soup and mac with cheese. Chicken tortilla soup was delicious the mac and cheese was average. The french dip was so delicous must get, im not big on rye bread or mustard but my wife love it.

The sandwiches are good, the spuds are amazing and HUGE. I am a big eater and I couldn't finish a potato here. You order at the counter and they bring you your food. Service was good.

My favorite is the Cobb Club, my husband enjoys the Angus Club. Today my friend tried the southwest Cobb salad, yumm! Oh and never ever, ever stop in and... More

This is a terrific place to order a custom made sandwich. I like that I am able to choose my ingredients and have it come out "just perfectly". I also really like the lemonade that is a "signature drink" for them. The potato salad is delicious.

I'm hooked on the salads & sandwiches. My son introduced me to this place in January 2014 when I moved to Cornelius. They make a killer BLT.
