Everyone is getting ready for another new restaurant in Lufkin. McAlister's Deli, and now we have a grand opening date. They have the sign up now, so things are looking great. They are in the Brentwood Crossing Shopping Center. The physical address is 2136 South 1st Street Lufkin, Texas 75901. They are right next to Sam’s Club, AT&T and Panda Express.

Even though I had never heard of McAlister's Deli, they have been around for almost 30 years. This is the one thing that I think we are really missing here. This new location is  next to Panda Express in front of Sam's in the Walmart shopping center. I am stoked that we have a Grand Opening date.

If you want to get a sneak peak of McAlister's Deli just take a short trip to Tyler. It's located on 4325 Old Bullard Rd. Looking on google they have 4.4 stars, and are comparable in price to Jason's Deli. If you are looking for something amazing to eat there, they are known for their tea, but I haven't tried any of the food yet.

I hope this is a restaurant that has staying power. I was crushed by Jason's Deli closing here. I go all the way to Houston or Tyler for those little ginger muffins off the salad bar. McAlister's has some amazing signature dishes we are going to get to enjoy. I am most looking forward to their chicken salad, southwest chicken sandwiches, and their Texas sized spuds.
