McAlister’s Deli will soon be opening in Wyoming, MI! The menu includes deli sandwiches, "giant spuds" (baked potatoes), soups, salads, and desserts. They are also known for their McAlister's Famous Sweet Tea, which is available by the glass or by the gallon.

The Grand Opening for their newest location is scheduled for Monday, November 9th at 2380 Health Drive in Wyoming.

This will be their second location in Michigan. Their other restaurant in our state is located in Lansing.

I was first introduced to McAlister's Deli many years ago while visiting St. Louis, MO. After that first visit, I made it a point to stop by for sandwich and baked potato on every return visit to that city. I'm looking forward to finally having one of their locations so close...although I may put on a few pounds from visiting too often!

When you go, I highly recommend the Black Angus Roast Beef Spud! Or, there is their White Chicken Chili, or their Country Potato Soup. Can you tell I like just about everything on their menu?!

If you can't decide just what to try when you get there, I recommend their  "Choose 2" --you can get two halves of pretty much any item on their menu.

McAlister's Deli was founded in 1989 in Oxford, Mississippi, by retired dentist Dr. Don Newcomb. There currently have over 450 locations in 28 states.

They also offer catering items such as sandwich trays and boxed lunches.

For more information check out their website. They also have a Facebook page.

I think I know what I'm doing for lunch on Monday! Maybe I'll see you there,
