Great tea and sides

this place is famous for its sweet tea. but you should really try the orange cranberry club sandwich. it is so tasty and delicious. it is just one of so many sandwiches and salads they have here. the mac and cheese is the best in town.

Just driving through and saw this place, decided to give it a try and what a great discovery. It is hard to find really good sandwich shops and we fell in love with this place, even better when we found out it was a chain and we might be able to visit other locations. Very clean, staff were extremely friendly.... More

We found the food here to be average with good service. We have eaten at other MxAllister's and have been OK with the food. My wife ordered grilled chicken salad and rather than the chicken being In chunks like other locations, it was thin sliced

I used to live in Texas and loved visiting McAlisters, this one did not meet expectations compared to its other establishments in the south. The sandwich looked like it was thrown together in 10 seconds and the bread was so soggy due to a monstrous proportion of vinegerette. I was able to get my sandwich in about a minute after... More

My bf and I ate here tonight, takeout. The staff are friendly and the restaurant itself is quite clean. I had the four-cheese griller with macaroni and cheese. Nothing fancy, but it was really tasty! Also, their sweet tea is awesome!

the food here is usually very good. but tonight I discovered another reason to come to mcalisters.. A counter person named LANE came out of the kitchen to help take folks orders. she always smiled and was very pleasant and helped me make a food selection. my dining experience was delightful because of her.

What can I say. Nothing fancy, you order your food from the counter person as you enter and the bring it to the table when it's ready. They have a wide offering on their menu board. We have never been disappointed here and it sure beats normal fast food joints. It has outdoor seating in good weather.

I'm always impressed with the great sandwiches. I am a regular customer when I'm in town on business. I love the ice tea as well.
