Nearly three decades ago, a dentist from Oxford, Mississippi had a vision to turn an abandoned movie-set diner into a small, yet charming, neighborhood restaurant & gathering place. That vision became a reality when the first McAlister’s opened its doors in 1989. The menu then would still feel familiar today packed with the craveable sandwiches, spuds and salads they are known for – and of course the famous McAlister’s Sweet Tea.
Tea is brewed throughout the day to ensure there’s always a fresh batch waiting for you. Starting with steaming-hot filtered water, the tea is steeped from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ premium tea leaves, sweetened to perfection with pure cane sugar and poured over our special, crystal-clear ice.
From the local produce vendors, and genuine Idaho Russet Potatoes to the Rainforest Alliance Certified black tea sweetened with pure cane sugar, McAlister's is committed to serving food that is not only crave-able but created with the finest and freshest ingredients.
Vegetarian and Gluten Sensitive options are available.
