McAlister’s Deli is an American chain of fast casual restaurants founded in 1989 in Oxford, Mississippi, by retired dentist Dr. Don Newcomb. The menu includes deli sandwiches, “giant spuds” (baked potatoes), soups, salads, and desserts, as well as catering items such as sandwich trays and boxed lunches. Natchitoches will soon join the 12 Louisiana locations of McAlister’s.
