Stopped for dinner after leaving Lackland AFB. Sandwich was very good as well as the service. Thought that the restaurant could have been a bit cleaner. Floors were pretty bad. Good meal, good service, I would certainly go back.

Nice atmosphere with great service. Good variety of sandwiches. It is a nice place for a either a light lunch with a salad or a hearty lunch with soup and sandwich. Median range price.

The service was polite and speedy. The menu is a variety of sandwiches, soups and sides. The sandwiches we had were pretty good. The sweet tea is on the diabetes level of sweetness so if you don't like it that sweet, they can halve it with unsweetened tea. The attentive support staff checked tables for used plates and refills. Overall,... More

McAlister's Deli has always been consistently good. Their Sweet Tea is the best! i've tried numerous menu items and during this visit I ordered the melted ham sandwich which had a really nice amount of ham topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato. There is always a loooooooooooooong line during lunch hours at this location (so plan accordingly), so you... More

I was expecting this great salad with lots of Butterball Smoked Turkey; however, I was very disappointed to find less than a spoonful of turkey on my salad . It was drowning in Craisins and candied pecans. Where's the turkey!?!!!

I came with a group of girlfriends and kids during the day. The order line was very slow - it was around 11:15 am.There was nothing particularly remarkable about the food, nothing wrong with it, but I didn't care for the flavors in my southwest Cobb salad. I was hoping for more and definitely had unfulfilled expectations.

My husband and I went there for the 1st time. My husband was excited to try the Pastrami sandwich when it arrived it was so small and he was still hungry, we figured for the price of the sandwich it would have been larger, the sandwich was good but just way too small. We will probably not go back

I frequent this restaurant simply because it's easy to get in and out of, food is average, thier spuds tend to be a little crispy skinned/overdone. Easy bite to eat.
