The sandwich was made with Black Forest ham, Swiss cheese, spinach, house-made balsamic red onions, and black cherry honey mustard, and served on toasted 9-Grain bread. 

The Garlic Herb Roast Beef Sandwich

As the seasons change, so do the customer palates and available ingredients. To ensure that customers can enjoy the best of what each season has to offer, the deli often rolls out seasonal items such as The Garlic Herb Roast Beef Sandwich. This sandwich is made with premium, tender roast beef, topped with cheddar cheese, herb mayo, tomato, and spring mix, and served on toasted 9-grain bread. Unfortunately, its run has ended.

Salted Caramel Cookie

The Salted Caramel Cookie was an exquisite treat. The cookie was a perfect combination of both sweet caramel and crunchy sea salt.

Country Potato Soup

There’s nothing quite like the comforting, down-home taste of a hot potato soup. Potato, onion, bacon, chives, and cheese are all classic ingredients are all included in the recipe. 

Pure Cane Sugar Lemonade

Lemonade has always been a favorite beverage for many, and McAlister’s Famous Tea has been a longtime companion to it. So when McAlister’s released the Pure Cane Sugar Lemonade, customers were thrilled. This delicious, refreshing drink is made from natural ingredients and brings back memories of the fresh-squeezed lemonade you enjoyed growing up. It was not originally intended to be on the regular menu, but due to the overwhelming popularity it has achieved, the decision was made to make it a permanent addition. 

Is there a secret menu at McAlister’s Deli?

McAlister’s Deli’s Secret Menu is made up of items that were discontinued from the regular menu, but customers continued ordering anyway. After much consideration, the sandwich chain decided to make the secret menu more widely known and even published the options on their website for a period of time. 

The secret menu is no longer on McAlister’s official website so I’m not exactly sure if you could still order it. If you’re curious about what off-the-menu items McAlister’s Deli has to offer, here are a few items from the secret menu and how you can order them. Who knows, some locations might still serve them.

The Godfather

The Godfather sandwich is truly the masterpiece on the secret menu. The sandwich starts with a sturdy toasted baguette. It’s then filled with USDA choice Black Angus roast beef, fresh pizza sauce, and melted provolone cheese. All you have to do is ask for The Godfather and the sandwich will be prepared for you.

Sweetberry Chicken

The Sweetberry Chicken consists of a grilled chicken breast and is accompanied by a medley of fresh vegetables, including lettuce, tomatoes, and Swiss cheese, all sandwiched between two slices of wheat bread. The sandwich is generously coated with mayo and a zesty orange cranberry sauce.

Peppers, Onions & Beef

The Peppers, Onions & Beef is an exquisite sandwich made with only the highest quality ingredients. The USDA choice Black Angus roast beef is carefully cooked to perfection, ensuring a juicy and tender bite with every sandwich. The bell peppers and onions are sautéed until they are lightly browned and bring the perfect crunchy texture to the sandwich.

To top it off, savory provolone cheese is melted onto the baguette, creating a delightful combination of textures and flavors. The baguette is toasted to golden-brown perfection, bringing out the subtly sweet flavor of the bread. To complete the sandwich, it is served with a side of au jus, allowing the customer to truly savor the flavor of the sandwich.

California Classic

The California Classic starts with a toasted pita that’s filled with slices of bell peppers, red onions, lettuce, and a few slices of tomato. Topping off this sandwich is a generous helping of Gambino’s olive salad, which adds a salty and briny flavor and a thick slice of provolone cheese.

The Patriot

The Patriot starts with a layer of Butterball smoked turkey that’s paired with Swiss cheese and a generous helping of fresh lettuce and tomato. The zesty combination is then topped off with a drizzle of lite mayo and a dollop of sweet orange cranberry sauce served on wheat bread. You can enjoy some of the flavors of Thanksgiving year round with this sandwich. 

The Big Cheese

The Big Cheese Sandwich is an all-time favorite. It features three slices of American cheese, three slices of Swiss cheese, and two slices of provolone, all grilled on a hearty slice of sourdough bread.

Turkey Cranberry Salad

The Turkey Cranberry Salad starts with Butterball smoked turkey and complimented with dried cranberries have been added for a sweet and tangy flavor and candied pecans for a crunchy texture. For a bit of creaminess and sharpness, Gorgonzola cheese has been incorporated along with Granny Smith apples and chopped grapes. To make sure that all the flavors meld together perfectly, the salad is served with a Cranberry-Pecan vinaigrette dressing that ties everything together.
