Great food

Good food with good service. Was glad to see this place after a horrible experience the night before at Whiskey Creek. Nice girl at the counter to take our order. Had special request on order and was no problem.

This is average cafeteria food. If the milk was 5 cents a carton I could have fantasized about being back in my grade school days. No one wanted to trade me something off their tray for my turkey with brown gravy. Bummer

Stopped for lunch while traveling up I29. The food was good, not great, but overpriced. The service was good. The restaurant was clean but the restroom was not.

McAlisters is always a good choice. The food is reasonable and the service is always friendly. We went early and were able to get right in, however, when we left the line was out the door. Their baked goodies are very very good!

We were a party of 4 adults of 2 children (ages 12 and 7) and everyone liked their food. I had the tuna melt and it was delicious, including the pickle spears which have a unique taste. The iced tea was the best I've had in recent memory, which is odd because this isn't the south where iced tea is... More
