Description: Home of hand-crafted sandwiches, always fresh salads, giant stuffed spuds and our Famous Sweet Tea. It's always better to give. And at McAlister's, we give as much as we can, including free refills, big portions and big smiles. It's easy to be giving when you're a giver by nature. And we're givers. So as soon as you step through our doors, you can relax and expect to get a little more. Whether it's getting free refills on your sweet tea without ever leaving your seat or being served portions always a bit bigger than your appetite, giving you more of what you like is what we like to do. That's why you'll always be treated like an old friend and be greeted with a warm smile even if we just met.

“Nice change of pace.”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Mcalisters Deli provided a nice change of pace from fast food or heavier fare. Members of our party enjoyed the stuffed baked potatoes, french onion soup, and sandwiches.

“McAlisters”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We happened upon McAluster,s deli by chance. We were looking for a place to eat and saw this big orange tent in a local mall. We checked out the Halloween tent and then noticed that a deli was at this end of the mall. We went in and shopped and when leaving, we went into the deli for a sandwich. The sandwich and potato salad was delicious. Drink was large. They gave us two plates so we could share the sandwich which was a nice portion for each of us. While we were there eating, many customers visited the establishment. Prices are reasonable and big variety.

“Very slow ”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I took my parents here for a quick dinner after a long day of sight-seeing. There were several other diners and after we ordered and got a table we noticed nobody had food. It was very slow coming out and after 40 minutes they brought my wife's and my food. When they didn't come back with my parent's after another 10 minutes, my father went to the counter to inquire. They said the had no record of the order and they were very backed up without enough help. Also said it wasn't her fault. No offer to help so my parents got their money back and did not get to eat. I know this happens when their is not enough help, but I would expect the staff to do anything they could to try to please the customer and make it less painful. We saw many if the other diners going to the counter with issues, too.

“Good Deli Food”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The salads are huge and very good. They a large selection of sandwiches and they all seem good. Go early for lunch. Dinner is pretty light but you can still get soup, salad and sandwich.

We ate lunch here while walking around Pigeon Forge. What a nice break for us. The service and food were wonderful. The outdoor seating area is nice.
