Eating our way across the South - McAlister's Deli

McAlister's is a chain, and has an aggressive expansion plan that means that it soon won't be a Southern-only thing. But for now, they are, I've never eaten there before, and they have sweet tea -- so I'll count them. McAlister's has sandwiches and soup, but their specialty is huge baked potatoes with a variety of toppings. I got Erica's favorite -- the Spud Max: "nearly 2 pounds" of baked potato, turkey, ham, cheese, olives, sour cream, crimminy -- I can't remember what else. I'm still full. And the sweet tea is great -- not too sweet.
