Neal's is very much a long standing tradition in Springdale. A trip here is like stepping back in time to a diner 40 years ago. Very traditional menu with all the fried favorites. Good pie selection to finish off your meal.

This place is a Springdale staple. Speaking with some of the elder locals that have been going there for years, they still say their chicken is just as delicious as they remember. They have great side selection-- I could just eat a veggie platter and be completely content. Great comfort food... The Decor is so dated, but so unique to... More

Always great food and service. Not gourmet, just good. So all you food and latte snobs need not walk in. This is southern cooking and delicious. If you want foo foo, it won't be on the table, but good rolls, pepper sauce and real butter will be and so will hospitality. I saw one Yankee jerk get loud about how... More

I was in town working and several people had recommended Neal's. They had built it up so much and it was ranked high on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try. First I will say I am a bit of a chicken fried steak snob. After all of the hype I was disappointed. I asked if the... More

This like going back 50 yrs. ago to a diner except that now it is no smoking. This place has been around longer than that. It is a informal restaurant along the old business strip which maintains a large and loyal clientele. Probably its signature item is pie, but the menu includes most of the classics associated with a diner.... More

Eating at Neal's is like a throw down at Grandma's house. Big selection of daily veggies with a few that change every day. It's down home country cooking with a few different specials daily. I had the baked chicken with green beans cabbage and homemade rolls. Everything was pretty tasty, especially the chicken. It's a decent place to bring a... More

Huge serving sizes of roast beef and the corn bread muffins were good. Price seemed a little high for the vegetable plate.

Neal's Cafe is home cooking and it lives up to that expectation. But the best part about this place is the pie! Homemade every day and is you like meringue pies you have to see the height they get on theirs!
