Another McAlister’s Deli grand opening

McAlister’s Deli is set to officially open at Timber Creek Crossing Friday, July 28, but you can get a sneak peek when the fast casual restaurant hosts a free lunch July 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you prefer the hoopla of the Friday grand opening, the store will feature the Lake Highlands High School drumline and distribute $50 McAlister’s gift cards to the first 50 guests in line.

McAlister’s is open every day from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“We are pleased to have found a home for McAlister’s Deli in the Lake Highlands area and we look forward to serving the surrounding East Dallas neighborhoods,” said Adam Saxton, co-CEO of The Saxton Group, which owns and operates franchises throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. McAlister’s is headquartered in Georgia.

You can view McAlister’s menu of in-store and to-go options here, and their catering choices include breakfast, spud bars, salads, snacks, sandwich trays, box lunches and desserts. You can always skip the line by placing your order at or via their app, and you can follow them on social media via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

McAlister’s Deli is in the former Sears Appliances space, 6186 Retail Road, Suite 200 near Sam’s and Walmart.
