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.

McAlister's Iced Tea is fantastic!!! I mostly order the Sweet Tea, but have also enjoyed the Peach Tea a couple of times. The food is hit and miss, depending on who is preparing the food and the time of your visit. I have had good food, and I have had food that I've had to send back. I've never had... More

The sandwiches were awesome for the price. We had a late night working nearby and grabbing some sandwiches helped. Nothing we tried was bad. The nachos were good, as was the potatoes (which are huge).

Enjoyed dinner at this chain deli this evening -- not my first time, mind you, but very likely my favorite visit. I ordered the New Yorker with a side of potato salad, and boy, oh boy, was that ever a good sandwich. For one, it was piled high -- no kidding -- with tasty, juicy, lean corned beef and pastrami...

It took a while to decide what to order because their menu is extensive. I finally decided on the Big Nasty. This was a huge amount of scrappy roast beef with cheese and topped with gravy served open faced on a yummy roll. My husband got a New Yorker. His also had lots of meat. The potato soup was delicious,... More

After having a positive experience at another McAlister's Deli, we were please to find this one while passing through St. Joseph. We arrived around 2:00 pm to find no one staffing the registers. One gal was on the phone and ignored us. We waited and someone finally wandered out to take our order. My husband ordered a Reuben but was... More

My visit was the first time I'd ever gone to this deli. Staff was extremely helpful & patient as I checked out the menu, listed on a chalk board behind the cash register. My salad was HUGH & very good. I will be back for another visit.
