Create Craveable Connections
In your community
Blame it on our small-town roots, but we believe great food, a warm smile and a tall glass of sweet tea is the fix for almost anything. McAlister’s Deli® offers guests more than hearty sandwiches piled high and sides worth sharing. Through genuine Southern hospitality and friendly conversation, we aim to make every guest feel like our place is their place, too. Become a part of something special with a McAlister’s Deli® of your very own.

When a film production rolled into Oxford, MS, they transformed an old gas station into a 1950s diner. In 1989, a dentist with a dream turned that set into the first-ever McAlister’s Deli®. Today, McAlister’s continues to dream big with franchise opportunities sprouting in regions around the world.
