Ordered a Caesar salad wrap and another sandwich. Hubby and I waited 1 hour for our food...when I asked one of the workers to check on the status of our order, she said she didn't see our name on the screen but since it is To-Go, they will just call our name. If our name isn't on the screen, how are they going to call our order? She just walked away and didn't bother to inform me of anything else. We eventually got our order but was told their system did not put a name to our order so it has been sitting on their counter for a while. They gave us 3 cookies to make up for the wait. It was my husband and I's first time here but we will not be back. If you do not have time to wait an hour for a simple order, I suggest grabbing lunch elsewhere..

We stopped here for lunch around 1:30 today and was met with very friendly faces. Great staff and the food was served promptly. Dished well and so very good. Thank you! Right now so many places are struggling just to get staff to work. Management must be good leaders here.


Love their Arnold palmer and you can't go wrong with their spuds. Great lunch spot


This place is always busy, always booming! Great quality and generally very friendly and helpful staff. Sometimes you can stand at the Togo side of the counter and nobody will say anything to you for 15 minutes, but other than that very friendly!

Good choice for slightly upscale counter serve sandwiches. My sandwich choice was very tasty. The service was pretty good too. I would have liked to give them 5 stars, but they forgot to include the pickle with my order and the price seemed a bit high for what I was getting. I'd definitely return though. They have lots of good looking options on the menu.

Nice restaurant and all the staff was great. Very clean place and still following the Covid-19 precautions. Out side dining was Available. The only negative was the tri rib beef bowl wasn't that great other than all other food was good. Really good Ice tea and all the refills you wanted.

Awesome sandwich! Mac and cheese needs to catch up with Panera, other than that, superb.

McAlister's has amazing food. They can be a little high priced but it is worth it for the quality. Will be going back!

Friendly service, patient, understanding wait staff, ( went with a young toddler, who made a HUGE mess). Good food and options


I ordered a French dip, side salad, two balsamic vinergetette dressings. Got French dip, TWO salads, 1 dressing each. Dined in. Alone. Waiter couldn't fathom why I wanted two dressings, not two salads French dip was late, cold , so was auju.. Articulated my issue to waiter and got a dumbfounded look. I wont eat here again. Lesson learned. Dan Edwards 573-818-8208
