This is the first McAlister's I have visited in Virginia, compared to Texas, the prices are so much higher. The kids meals are set at $2.79, compared to just $1 in Texas, which is quite the difference. The food was great, as always. But considering...More

Friendly, casual service from staff, particularly our cashier/manager, who offered us helpful information (ex. that Tuesday night kids meals are free). Lots of sandwich options--many hot options and some seasonal options. Ample seating, clean environment, a step up from most "quick service" options. When McAlister's...More

This location is not too far from Memorial, and we thought it would give us more options. My step-mother has dietary restrictions, so this was a good choice for us. She got the grilled chicken plain and she loved it! My husband and I split...More

My husband and I were wanting something fresh and light. I chose the special 1/2 sandwich with a cup of soup and he ordered the king club special with chips. We both got cookies,his macadamia nut and I got the oatmeal raisin.....to die for. Enjoy!

Having never been here I did not know what to expect. I ordered the club sandwich and it was flavorless. A single strip of the thinnest bacon and some lettuce I would consider scraps. I will not be spending my money here.

I meet with groups of friends there often for lunch. It is always packed. Love the ice tea. I have eaten at the one on Richmond and often in Roanoke. Great atmosphere!

Stopped in for lunch and a takeout for a colleague. Excellent variety of sandwiches and exceptionally friendly, quick service. After we ate, we ordered takeout for a friend and got it very quickly.

Menu good with multiple selection of food, sandwiches, and potatoes. Can't say enough about the huge baked potatoes, they will fill you up.

This place is pretty average. Average food at an average price. I have had three different sandwiches which were okay, but the pasta salad isn't very good. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is very clean/beautiful. I do love that they serve Banh...More

Home of hand-crafted sandwiches, always fresh salads, giant stuffed spuds and our Famous Sweet Tea. It's always better to give. And at McAlister's, we give as much as we can, including free refills, big portions and big smiles. It's easy to be giving when you're a giver by nature. And we're givers. So as soon as you step through our doors, you can relax and expect to get a little more. Whether it's getting free refills on your sweet tea without ever leaving your seat or being served portions always a bit bigger than your appetite, giving you more of what you like is what we like to do. That's why you'll always be treated like an old friend and be greeted with a warm smile even if we just met.
