McAlistar's Deli....What Are They Doing??

Davwud | Dec 3, 2008 08:32 AM

Hey Hounds.

So over the weekend Mrs. Sippi and I decided to go to McA's for lunch. I really like their Muffaletta so it was a good choice. Or, at least we thought.

One step in he door and Mrs. Sippi knew something was wrong. The menu was all wrong. I didn't see my muff. so I went up to a girl who looked like a manager and asked her about it.

She said that they were using a test menu. She said that the muff had been removed along with a whole pile of other options in an effort to "Streamline" it. The muff not being a big seller was removed. I can understand that.

But here's what I don't get. She told me that they no longer have salami or pastrami. Period. Nothing on the menu has those meats and as a result, they don't have them on hand.

IT"S A DELI. Or at least it calls itself a deli. How can you do it without those two meats??
