I have been here a few times. Most recently, there were 4 of us and the service was great. The food was awesome. I could have eaten 2 beef dips! Our cups of tea were never empty as the staff was continuously coming around offering refills.

My family and I go here at least twice a month and it doesn't disappoint. I have tried most of the menu and haven't had anything I have not liked. There drive up window is super convenient as well as the app.

We have eaten at McAlister's from South Carolina to Portland Texas. They are all good. The restaurant in Portland is no exception. Great sandwiches, sweet tea, and the service is always good.

Offering a variety of different sandwiches and soups is the Hallmark of the restaurant. However my wife and I really prefer the salad. The staff is usually very accommodating when it comes to special orders due to our dietary needs. Overall for a chain restaurant this is really good food

I'm here for a short term job, staying at a nearby hotel. Having McAlisters close is really convenient b/c they have wonderful food. Their potatoes are huge, soups are good, and the sweet tea is perfect!

Friendly staff and clean restaurant. My favorites sandwiches are the Mufaletta and the chicken salad. For a change though, I sometimes prefer to get the Spud Ole. NOTE: If you order a baked potato, you are actually getting 2 potatoes! The choose 2 is a great option if you want a combination of soup, salad, sandwich or potato in smaller... More
