We got there and it was not crowded until after our arrival. Seemed to be very little teamwork and only one register taking orders for quite some time. Employees seemed to be lacking in multitasking except for the one that took our order. SLOW service for all of the patrons...not just us. To top it off, one in our group... More

Other complaints of slow service is accurate. I experienced a long wait time to order then an additional 15 minutes for my food. Location could use a few more hands in the kitchen or on register. Only one cashier that tried to remain pleasant but was annoyed by the rush. I asked a question about soup and she quickly cut... More

I enjoyed McAlister's when we lived out west, but upon moving to Virginia I found this location to be disappointing. The service is notoriously slow and the portions are very small. You may as well pay no attention to the pictures of your sandwich on the wall - because that's not what you are getting. I get the impression that... More

Employees were nice but customer service was terrible. Best thing about the meal was the fountain drink. Ordered a rueben sandwich and side, sandwich was gross, way too much meat and sauerkraut, No cheese and barely any thousand island. it was also cold and I couldn't even finish it. I didn't complain about it but I guess I should have.... More

Stopped here on our way home today. I have loved their sweat tea since I first tasted it many years ago. Unfortunately, we do not have one near us. Their food is always good and fresh. Worth the stop and I will be stopping there whenever I am driving through.

The place must be a locals favorite. The place was packed, finding a table was a challenge. They had a large menu but I had a difficult time finding something to order. I do not eat meats and ordered a strange vegetable sandwich. It was ok but would not go back. My husband eats all foods and loved the place.... More
