CARROLLWOOD — In July 2013, McAlister's Deli opened in the Westshore area, and on Dec. 19, owner Brayton Knotts will open the doors to a second location in Carrollwood.

The restaurant is family owned and operated, with Knotts' son, Blake Knotts, serving as general manager. The father and son team is excited to bring McAlister's Deli to the Carrollwood community.

"We thought this would be a great place to launch our next store," said Brayton Knotts.

McAlister's Deli is known for its Southern hospitality and McAlister's Famous Tea, which is served in a variety of flavors.

"Our tea is a proprietary blend just for us," said Brayton Knotts.

At the Westshore location, he said there are regular customers who come in for tea seven days a week.

McAlister's Deli has a diverse menu that offers soups, salads, baked potatoes, and a large selection of sandwiches. Diners can choose from the orange cranberry club, southwest turkey melt, sweet chipotle chicken, or can craft their own sandwich. There are also side items, such as potato salad, mac-n-cheese, and coleslaw. Desserts include cheesecake, carrot cake and cookies. Online ordering and catering are available.

McAlister's Deli is located at 14444 N Dale Mabry Highway. It will be open 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. seven days a week. For more information, call (813) 513-4871, or visit facebook/mcalister'sdelicarrollwood.
