My sister goes to McAlister a couple times a week.We went Feb 9th 2017.I my sister had their famous delicious Reuben piled high with corned beef. I ordered a half a club and a cup of soup. Oh my goodness, it was so spicy hot my jaws were burning. They were very accommodating and let me choose another soup. Thank... More

I enjoyed McAlister's when we lived out west, but upon moving to Virginia I found this location to be disappointing. The service is notoriously slow and the portions are very small. You may as well pay no attention to the pictures of your sandwich on the wall - because that's not what you are getting. I get the impression that... More

Employees were nice but customer service was terrible. Best thing about the meal was the fountain drink. Ordered a rueben sandwich and side, sandwich was gross, way too much meat and sauerkraut, No cheese and barely any thousand island. it was also cold and I couldn't even finish it. I didn't complain about it but I guess I should have.... More

Stopped here on our way home today. I have loved their sweat tea since I first tasted it many years ago. Unfortunately, we do not have one near us. Their food is always good and fresh. Worth the stop and I will be stopping there whenever I am driving through.

The place must be a locals favorite. The place was packed, finding a table was a challenge. They had a large menu but I had a difficult time finding something to order. I do not eat meats and ordered a strange vegetable sandwich. It was ok but would not go back. My husband eats all foods and loved the place.... More

Three adults went on a Friday night and I was surprised how empty it was. We waited for twenty minutes for our food. It was all cold. There was a film over the soup it had sat so long. No bacon on the sandwich which said it had bacon on it. They forgot the side order. Got the condiments wrong... More

We chose to eat dinner here on the weekend and they were pretty busy. They had two employees in the dining room the whole time, one was cleaning and busing tables and the other was offering drink refills. We ordered sandwich's with potato salad and cole slaw. Their sweet tea was perfect, not too sickeningly sweet but just right. We... More

We went for a late lunch. Not to many people in eating when we went. No one in line front of us. Service was very slow. We waited over 15 minutes for our order.
