McAlister’s Deli opened June 17 in its new location at 2355 E. 116th St. in the former Longhorn Steakhouse location in Merchant’s Pointe at 116th Street and Keystone Avenue.
“We are excited to officially reopen our newest McAlister’s Deli within the city of Carmel,” Charles Henley, CEO of McIndy Ventures, a franchisee of the McAlister’s Deli Corp., said. “We already have a loyal base of guests established in Carmel, and we believe that they’re going to love the new restaurant. We’re going to do everything that we can to ensure that this new location becomes the go-to spot in south Carmel for quick casual dining.”
McAlister’s Deli offers a wide menu covering more than 100 different items including soups, salads, sandwiches, large baked potatoes, treats and its McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea.
The new restaurant location offers a variety of amenities including a new interior design modeled after the McAlister’s Deli at Cool Creek Commons, on 146th Street in Westfield that opened in October 2012. Features include a tea bar and condiment table, a 30-seat meeting room with dedicated flat-screen television, a patio, expanded audio/video systems, more than 100 parking spaces, 158 seats including several booths and a “Grab-N-Go” refrigerator for quick purchases of bulk sides, sandwiches and salads.
Another feature at the new McAlister’s Deli is its curbside to-go service with three dedicated parking spaces. Guests can call the store at 817-8000 to place an order, park in a designated space and have their food brought directly to their vehicles.
The previous location at Merchant’s Pointe, the first McAlister’s Deli restaurant opened in Indiana, was closed in April to relocate to the new facility. The new location will be open Sunday through Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
