A Vegetarian CAN eat here

Had dinner with family at this restaurant on Thursday, the 12th, and felt it had improved greatly from the first time I tried it. My daughter is a vegetarian, and I'm a wanna be. Finding affordable places in the 'burg that offer anything other than salad can be tricky, if not impossible. This... read more

A lot of options. Had soup and sandwich which were good but it was pricey. The atmosphere was very bland and boring

A group of 8 of us stopped in for a quick lunch. The menu selection was good. They offer sandwiches, soups, salads, and potatoes. My husband stated this menu was larger than the McAlister's he had eaten at in NC. I chose a baked potato. The half size was one whole potato and the full size was two. My husband... More

The selections on the menu, is not what I would expect from a deli. My wife and I have visited three times, the bill has been around $28 and I we are never that impressed. You can do better by finding a local restaurant in downtown Harrisonburg or Staunton.

I had a turkey Reuben and baked potato soup both were great and husband had a pot roast potato and chicken soup and his was also great. We took carrot cake and... More

This is our favorite place to eat when we come to Harrisonburg to visit our daughter at JMU. Sandwiches and salads are great. Service is fast and friendly.

McAlister's had been recommended to us, but we likely wouldn't return there to eat. The food and the selection was good, but compared to many other places, was definitely pricey. I think I really expected a bit more for what they were charging. My Smoky Pepper Jack Turkey sandwich was good, as was the rest of my family's food, but... More
