Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can’t be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our McAlister's Deli menu under 500 calories.
With the Choose Two menu from McAlister's, you can choose from almost endless combinations of soups, salads, sandwiches and spuds, but the following is our favorite.
Chicken Tortilla Soup: A warm, steamy cup of hearty chicken tortilla soup from McAlister's on a cold, blustery winter day seems just about heavenly right now. At 200 calories, this combined with the salad below will be the perfect amount to fill you up!

Complete with sliced and grilled chicken breast, applewood smoked bacon, cheddar-jack cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers and croutons, this salad will have your mouth watering before your first bite. With McAlister's Lite Italian dressing, the salad comes to 280 calories, which takes your total to 480.
Beverage: McAlister's delicious unsweetened tea contains zero calories, as does their Skinny Green Tea with Citrus! Hot or cold, tea is always a great beverage choice when dining out.
