A new McAlister's Deli is now under construction in Abilene.

City permit records show Atkinson and Associates is building a new restaurant, set to be a McAlister's Deli, at 3318 South Clack. That's the space between Natural Grocers and The Cotton Patch on Abilene's south side.

McAlister's website shows the restaurant serves up sandwiches, salads, soups, baked potatoes, desserts, and is known for its sweet tea.

No word yet on an opening date.
