McAlister's is great -- especially for a group of 25. My church friends reserved the back room. We all enjoyed the social time and the food was perfect. Each of us ordered at the counter and the staff brought us our food in the back room. That was very nice, since some of our group are handicapped. We liked it... More

After traveling 6 hrs. from to the Poconos we were ready to eat. When the restaurant we intended to eat was closed, we spotted McAlister's and went there instead. very quick service, refreshed us enough to push on another hour and a half to our motel.

I was very disappointed all I ordered was a BLT had it barely had any bacon on the sandwich it should have been a lettuce sandwich the bacon that was on the sandwich was so limp and it was only 2 slices of bacon I wouldn't go here again if I returned to the area.

McAllister's aims to be a high end sandwich shop but it falls short. The food is average and more expensive than other places not far away. I am going to return and give it another try but I am not optimistic.

Love stopping in here whenever we come to JMU. So much better than Panera or other places like that. I had the New Yorker sandwich. It was at least 2 inches thick with what felt like 5 lbs of meat in it! Love the Mac & cheese as a side. In fact our last time in town, we ordered to... More

We were looking for a place to eat a light dinner and found McAlister's Deli to be perfect. We ordered our meal at the counter and it was brought to our table in less than 10 minutes. Nothing was missing. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and squash soup and my husband had a burger with some sides. It was... More

This is a walk up and order your food and they deliver it to your seat, place. Food quality good, prices fair. large selection, but for first time visitors, reading the choices up on a wall is a bit daunting as descriptions are not clear. Service to table is prompt. Had to wait in line to order since only one... More

Food here is pretty similar to Panera. I really don't see too much of a difference, some decent sandwiches and soup. It's usually a lot less packed than the Panera nearby as well.
