McAlister's Deli, which has been expanding since it orginated in a converted gas station in Oxford, Miss., in 1989, is ready for its move into Fort Worth.
McAlister's already has locations in Arlington, North Richland Hills, Southlake and Colleyville, but the two new locations will be its first two Fort Worth spots.
"After several years of searching in the Fort Worth and TCU areas, we believe weve found a great location for the expansion of the McAlisters Deli brand, Adam Saxton, vice president of the Saxton Group, says in a release. We plan on digging deep roots in Fort Worth. McAlister's is scheduled to open Aug. 24 in The Village at Camp Bowie at 6333 Camp Bowie Blvd. and Aug. 27 at 3053 S. University Drive, which puts it in the same strip as Dutch's Legendary Hamburgers and Buffalo Bros. Yes, there will be TCU memorabilia on display at that location, and McAlister's has signed a sponsorship agreement with TCU athletics.
McAlister's has a large (and colorful!) menu of sandwiches, "spuds," soups, salads and even some items that don't begin with 's.' It also proudly boasts about its sweet tea -- excuse me, its Famous Sweet Tea, which apparently has a secret recipe that goes beyond tea, water and sugar. You can read more about that and other McAlister's tidbits here.
