A new restaurant is under construction in south Salina.

According to Saline County records, a building permit in the amount of $1.5 million was issued July 15 for McAlister's Deli, which will be located at 2675 Market Place, directly north of Club Car Wash. The restaurant is being built on the northernmost portion of the land that was previously home to Starlite Skating Rink. Club Car Wash was built on the southernmost portion of the former Starlite property.

The Atlanta, Georgia-based McAlister's has nearly 500 locations in 28 states, including six other locations in Kansas (Lawrence, Manhattan, Shawnee, Topeka, and two in Wichita). The restaurant primarily serves "sandwiches, salads, and spuds". They are also known for their sweet tea.

An opening date for the new Salina location has not yet been announced.
