About Us

Our Story
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 we’re known for – and of course our famous McAlister’s Sweet Tea.

Not only has our menu remained true to its roots, so have our values. Today, with more than 500 restaurants in 28 states, we’re still dedicated to serving great food with genuine hospitality. We invite you to come for the food and stay for the experience. Bring your family, meet your neighbors, celebrate that big win with your teammates or make new friends that share the same love for sweet tea and sandwiches as you – we mean it when we say that our table is your table.

Our Community
At McAlister’s, genuine hospitality means always delivering that little something extra. Whether it’s an extra smile when you walk in the door or an extra refill as you enjoy your meal, we want a visit to McAlister’s to feel like visiting a good friend. We’re always happy to see you and happy to serve you and want our hospitality to be as memorable as our food.
Our restaurants are not only committed to being better neighbors, but also to bettering our neighborhoods. We want to give back to our communities in ways that matter to our guests. That’s why our restaurants are often reaching out to local schools, churches, non-profits and other organizations.
