    I LOVE a good deli! We have eaten here several times and enjoyed it each time.

    I usually order the muffalatta and I feel it comes in second only to the Central Grocery Muffalatta in New Orleans. So, the muffalatta at McAlister's is quite delicious.

    The atmosphere is very nice as well. I love the plaid curatins. It is warm and inviting. Employees walk around while you eat and offer you drink refills and ask if everything is good.

    The soups, pickles, salads, iced tea, and sandwiches are yummy! This is a great place when we are out shopping or running errands. It's good, quick, and filling.

    We will see you soon for another delicious visit. Now my mouth is watering talking about all this good food.

    This is the BEST muffalatta sandwich I have ever eaten. The olive salad is EXCELLENT! The store is small, so I chose to go and sit in the park and eat. However, the store smells wonderful.

    I wanted to have some olive salad shipped to me, but it is expensive to do so, in my opinion, and I don't know that I could eat up 4 jars before it went bad. Wish I could just order 1 jar at a time.

    This is a favorite stop for us when in New Orleans.

    This is a MUST visit when in Phoenix, in my opinion. This is the absolutely BEST landjager I have EVER had (and I have eaten quite a few from different states/places around the country). The smell, as soon as I walk in the door, makes my mouth water and my belly rumble with anticipation. The Bratwurst and Weiners are also EXCELLENT!!

    To top it off, the gentleman that makes all of this is as nice as can be. It is easy to see, and taste, that he loves what he is doing.

    We have several authentic Germans in our family, and they also give all of the foods here two thumbs up and 5 stars, and they know good German food.

    No visit to Phoenix is ever complete without a visit to the German Sausage Company.

    I would love to see a booth/tent with the German Sausage Company and their goodies at Oktoberfest in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    The Good:

    I LOVED the atmosphere of this restaurant. I loved the Vienna Salad and the dressing was excellent. Beer was served in an authentic boot. The dessert was good. I liked that dressing and other items were available for to-go purchase.

    The "Needs Improvement":

    In my opinion, it was a bit expensive. The parking was difficult to maneuver and it was a small lot. I wasn't crazy over the flavor of the landjager. Also, I wasn't crazy over the Bratwurst appetizer due to portion size (also wish I could get it plain and put mustard on it). I also wish they offered a pork jager schnitzel.

    Overall, I would return to this restaurant. Thanks for letting me share my opinions.
