(WMC-TV) - The East Memphis franchise of a deli chain rooted in the Mid-South earns the Scorecard's High Score of the Week.
McAlister's Deli - whose first restaurant opened in Oxford, MS - celebrates the success of its store at 8385 Highway 64, just east of Wolfchase Galleria. It scored a 95 on its Nov. 23 Memphis-Shelby County Department of health inspection.
"I feel great for my staff," said shift manager Greg Oryswindle. "Get it done. That's our philosophy."
Get everything clean.
Get those belly-washers of tea filled.
"The friendly staff, always refilling the drinks, it's great here," said Mallory Schaeffer of Lakeland, TN.
Get cooking quality soups, sandwiches and spuds.
Keep the health inspector -- and the customers -- happy.
"This McAlister's Deli is the best," said Randa Smith of Millington, TN.
