Have been to this location multiple times. Food is always tasty and service is quick. When there has been an error with order it has been resolved fairly.

I went here with a friend who ordered the French dip and I got the Cobb club. My friend's sandwich only had meat on about half of it. My sandwich was ok, but they served it with a bag of bbq chips that had what looked like a piece of orange electrical tape wrapped around the bottom. When I squeezed... More

I would have to say this is usually my go to for a lunch if I have a bit of time to spare (which I did this week). They're usually busy during their lunch hours, for a good reason. I always get a to-go unless I'm with someone else and they tend to come out fairly quickly for the amount... More

For a quick meal you cannot go wrong at Mc Alister's. The large and diverse menu gives you plenty choices. The seating was well maintained. All tables are bussed quickly and ready for the next guest. The manager walked the floor asking patrons if all is well. We like the Corner Bakery places and Panera Bread restaurants so this one... More

My wife and I stopped in this McAlister's yesterday while shopping along Manchester. This is at least our fourth visit to this location, and it is always excellent. My wife had planned on a soup and salad combo, but when she saw they were offering a Hot Brown, all deliberation ceased. She loved it. Lots of sliced turkey atop toasted... More

This is one of most poorly managed McAlisters locations that the brand has. This one, the Columbia MO one and the Marion IL one are just not that great at all. Service is always subpar. Restaurant seems to be vastly understaffed every time I eat here. This is a consistent issue at this location. I have been going to McAlisters... More

I tried Mc Alister's in Maplewood for the first time. Too many employees with nothing to do and ask how my sandwich was. I said, "Not so good" Employee looked at me and left. Sandwich was toasted to the crouton texture, overload of Dijon Mustard, and half the sandwich had cheese. Poorly prepard. Not returning.

This is the new style of deli. Counter service from a posted menu, food delivered to the tables. Sandwiches are good, soup is good, service is quick. There is a large selection. Plenty of tables even at peak times. A great place for lunch while shopping.
