Very Nice for What it is...
Having come from far to the north and east of Waco, "deli" seems to have a VERY different meaning, involving fresh breads and meats that are individual to each deli.
That said, when the family and I went by McAlister's last week, I was pleasantly surprised that the sandwiches there were fairly tasty. The bread seemed to be more than the conveyance of meat, and the meats were well balanced in proportion to all the other toppings.
It was what a sandwich should be...a meshing of ingredients that is more than the sum of the parts. Although some have placed it akin to Panera's, I found the experience more laid-back, with friendlier staff, and better attention to basics than Panera.
