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.

I love how accommodating they are and how the menu fits whatever mood you are in or what you might be in the mood for.

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.

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 restaurant chain has vegetarian chili, veggie baked... More

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