We went to McAlisters Deli for lunch. The place was clean, the staff was very friendly and cheerful, and the food was delicious. We ordered the club and it was amazing. It is our favorite of their sandwiches. We always look forward to eating there.

We went for a quick fairly light meal. Veggie Chili and a plain spud with veggies. Their spuds are always large and very good. The service was great and the young lady was very helpful and kind. Nice atmosphere.

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...More
