Get ready for another new restaurant in Lufkin. McAlister's Deli, even though I had never heard of them, 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 going up next to Panda Express in front of Sam's in the Walmart shopping center. They should be open for business in May or June, but I just can't wait.

I want to get a sneak peak of McAlister's Deli, and if you do too, 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, and right now everyone is raving about the clam and corn soup.

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 might not have that, but they do have 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.
