Jason's Deli is usually a reliable balance between fast food and sit down. We stopped at Jason's Deli in Texarkana on a Thursday night. While they had several customers, it was nowhere near busy or "slammed." Our order of half-a-plain Jane baked potato and Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich was taken quickly. We then proceeded to wait 18 minutes for our food to arrive. This is very unusual for the Jason's Delis we frequent. Once we received our food, it was its usually excellent quality, but the excessive wait undermined an otherwise enjoyable experience. There appeared to be enough staff, and while there were several parties there, 18 minutes was too long a wait.

When I checked the Tripadvisor rating for McAlister's Deli, I really shouldn't have been surprised to find that it ranked #7 in Texarkana because the place was packed when I went for lunch today. It seems that word has spread around town that you can have a great meal at an affordable price with fast and friendly service. I had one of their new featured Sandwiches, Peppercorn Turkey Ranch, with a side of their signature Potato Salad which I thoroughly enjoyed. However, if you are not in the mood for one of their made-to-order Sandwiches, then you could also try one of their Salads or one of their hand-crafted Spuds like their Spud Max. And don't let me forget to mention how much folks love their Tea which is referred to in their menu as McAlister's Famous Sweet Tea and it is no lie. And even better, you could order it by the Gallon for $5. Parents will be pleased that there is a limited Kid's Menu of 8 menu items for children aged 12 and under which are all priced under $5.Travelers Tip: McAlister's Deli is very easy for the Interstate 30 traveler to locate. Just exit the Interstate at the Summerhill Road exit (Exit 222) if you are traveling to Big D. Then drive on the service road and make a right turn just after you have passed under the Cowhorn Creek overpass. McAlister's Deli is located on your left.Also, another plus for this location, is that there is plenty of seating inside which should comfortably seat two busloads of hungry folks.
What an awesome spot for a restaurant: Inside the repurposed lounge car of a 1940s Santa Fe Railroad passenger train! While this actual train car isn't the historic Flying Crow's dining car, it still packs so much retro charm. Anyone who loves trains or local history would love to dine here. As for the actual food itself, they serve an awesome pimento cheese and homemade pies by the slice from a local bakery, along with lots of other sandwiches. It's kind of a deli. There's great seating indoors in the train car as well as outside of a deck. Really an awesome spot that we can't stop talking about.
