That was good. We just had our first dinner at Stephenville’s newest restaurant, McAlister’s Deli.

The pecanberry salad

Four days after McAlister’s Deli opened at The Stable in Stephenville, The Husband and I went there for dinner.

After a long day in the courtroom on Tuesday, I was tempted to throw caution to the wind and order a delicious soup and sandwich combo, but the fear of overdosing on carbs sent me to the salad selection instead.

If you like a good salad, McAlister’s has an array to choose from.

I agonized over the options for far too long until finally settling on the pecanberry that came with fresh strawberries and blueberries, candied pecans, grilled chicken and fat free raspberry-pecan vinaigrette.

It was delicious and filling and here’s the best part: It has only 380 calories.

You better believe I ate every bite.

The Husband, who has no fear of carbs, promptly ordered The Italian, an overly-sized manwich fit more for a mob boss than a Dutch guy, but whatever.

The Italian is stacked with ham, salami, provolone, peppers, tomato, red onion and black olives and is topped off with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette.

He liked it, but said he will go for something a little less meaty next time.

Perhaps I can talk him into the spicy turkey melt so I can have a bite.

McAlister’s Deli is a casual restaurant where you can sit down to enjoy a meal or place an order to go.

It was pretty busy for an early Tuesday evening with people lining up all the way to the door to place an order.

But the line moved fast and once we were seated the food came quick and the steady stream of servers there to refill our iced tea and diet coke was never-ending.

If you haven’t tried Stephenville’s newest restaurant located next to Chick-fil-A, you should give it a go.

And if you order something carby, let me know how it is so I can live vicariously.
