    My first impression of this establishment wasn't good. Upon entering the dining area there were a couple of tables that were not bused which gave the restaurant an unclean appearance. Since I was the only patron this didn't raise my hopes for a good experience. Deciding to stay and give the restaurant a chance, my guest and I were promptly greeted at the counter and our orders taken quickly. The menu had a good variety and was reasonable. The counter staff was well groomed and polite and told us that our food would be out shortly. We seated ourselves and in about 5 minutes we were served our orders. Food presentation was excellent and had very good visual appeal. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich and my guest ordered the Reuben and we both decided on the macaroni and cheese as our sides. The sandwiches were outstanding with the flavor matching the visual appeal with ease. The bread on both sandwiches were toasted to perfection and both had generous portions of meat. The toppings were fresh and the sauces were applied proportionately. Both sandwiches had tremendous flavor that married well with the toppings and sauces which allowed the palate to experience the flavor of all the ingredients. This is almost a lost art with delis these days and the creator of these sandwiches really put the time and effort to make rock solid sandwich recipes that showcased their knowledge and pride. The macaroni and cheese was also very solid with the macaroni itself being the definition of al dente. The sauce was neither too creamy nor too thick and allowed the flavor of the cheeses to come forward with each bite. The flavor was medium strength and complimented the sandwiches very well. A deli pickle is optional and they did have good crunch and flavor. I ordered the unsweetened tea and my guest had water. The tea was a little weak, but it had good flavor just not strong enough for my preference and was ample size that had free refills. The rest of the establishment was pretty clean and had an outdoor dining area for those nice days when eating outside is an option. I'm knocking a half star off due to my first impression and another half off for the lackadaisical effort to clean the dining area up for any guests that would have come in after me. I realize that cleaning isn't the most glamorous part of restaurant work, but it is one of the most important aspects. The star here was definitely the kitchen staff that really took pride in their work and it showed on the plate. I recommend trying this place out for lunch and a lighter fare dinner for anyone looking for a good meal. Prices were typical for this style of restaurant and the quality of the food easily justifies the cost to the diner. I will definitely stop here again when I'm in the area and try out more of the menu.

    Today, my wife and I decided to head into McAlister’s to grab dinner. We had eyed up their Ultimate Nachos, Savannah Salad, and some broccoli cheddar soup. Oh, and of course the sweet tea. The service was prompt and the food was good… up until a certain point. As we sat down at our table, it was like we took a seat outside in the Bayou. Little fruit flies began to circle us like Kamikaze Pilots, with their target being our food. As we sat there, we began our cardio workout, starting with vicious karate chops, and backhanded b***ch slaps. The fruit flies were fierce. When we killed one, it was like two replacements were already on the way. Unfortunately, the battle had to end. My wife and I succumbed to their persistent attaxcks as onne jjust fleww into my eyye as I wriite this revuiew. Pleaase excusse the typos. S.O.S. We will not be back.

    I order on the app when I come to McAllisters, everything I order is always in my bag and timed perfectly.

    Savannah Chopped Chicken salad is my favorite. I've probably eaten 200 of them since 2016 when I discovered it on a roadtrip. Their sweetened or unsweetened tea is freshly brewed and delicious. My husband likes the King Club. He eats half one day and the other half the next day (and likes it better the second day).

    I've been here twice and the meals were good. They worked around my severe allergies, which I'm greatful for. Clean place and plenty of workers. Best of all, they were all very pleasant and happy to be there.
