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!

My family loves Neal's! It's good, southern cooking, for a decent price. We eat here a couple times a month at least. Serving sizes are huge! I often pay a little extra to split a plate with someone. There's plenty to share!

Neal's café is one of the best cafes I have visited in a long time. I travel the South and Southwest and very often eat at the "local" joints, which I prefer. The food is very good especially the fried chicken and the chicken fried chicken. The pies are wonderful. The only side I had that I considered "fair" was... More

Neal's has been around for many years, but it is still one of the best places in Northwest Arkansas to get an excellent, home-style meal.
