Delicious Sandwich

McAlister's Deli in Pelham (the one I visit most) has great quality sandwiches. My favorite is the Orange Cranberry Club. From time to time I will splurge on their brownie; it is one of the best, absolutely delicious.

We eat frequently at McAllister's Deli. I always order a Ruben, potato salad, and broccoli cheese soup. Delicious with great customer service.

We arrive shortly after noon for a quick lunch. I've enjoyed McAlister's many times but it's been awhile since I've been to this one. We walked in and there were a couple people in line ahead of us. Another registered opened to get everyone served quickly. I appreciate the wait staff checking on the amount of customers standing in line... More

I was traveling with friends. We stopped because we heard the iced tea was great here. It is. I enjoyed the turkey Reuben on rye. Everyone had an enjoyable meal.

I love the ice tea. The sandwiches are large and very fresh. Service is always friendly, They have salads too but, cant say much about them because I always get the Memphian. It is a great place to get a lite lunch on a limited amount of time.

We ate here because of our familiarity with the chain, but I was very disappointed. The plate I was served was dirty, with dried food on the sides of the plate, and then a big blob of chili... More

The food was good. I had a chef salad and it was good, but a fairly typical chef salad. My mom had a cup of the Tomato Bisque soup, which she said was very creamy and tasty, and a half of the veggie club, which she also liked. We took a couple of cookies and a brownie with us and... More

The salads here are great, large variety and they will even let you omit the things you do not like.
