A friend and I ate here. I asked for wheat bread. I was served the absolute hardest bread ever. Asked for my sandwich cold, it was heated. The bread was so hard! They told me to ask for wheat sliced bread. I asked for wheat, did not know I needed to get THAT specific. The kicker for me is when... More

We come here often because it's always great food and the staff is wonderful. Today we had the half-and-half (broccoli cheddar soup & half a Ruben) and the New Yorker. Both were fantastic. Definitely recommend and definitely will return.

The potato / spuds selection is really good, and they're HUGE!!! Great service, and good deli sandwiches. Delicious desserts, too. For travelers, the locale is convenient to shopping, and hotels on the north side of Columbia. Prices are fine for a budget. We order from here around twice per month, just to satisfy our Super Spuds and Nachos craving!

I've been to a McAllister's Deli before and this location was on the right side of the road as I was going back to my hotel. I'm glad I stopped. Great service. Wonderful sandwiches. Delicious desserts. Convenient to several hotels on the north side of Columbia. Lots of parking. Prices were just right!

Looked up this place before I even got to Columbia to grab a quick bite on my road trip to the mountains. Had the New Yorker sandwich and it was AWESOME with a pickle and little side of tater salad! The mango green tea was excellent as well. The staff was really friendly and I got exactly what I ordered... More

I do enjoy a McAlister's. If I'm on the road and see a McAlister's at lunch, I'm willing to stop and eat. It's always fast and you can count on the food. This one was no different. My wife and I on a trip stopped for lunch. Food was fast, but good, service was good. Never had a complaint on... More
