Good Home Cooking

We just wanted something simple tonight, we found Neal's Cafe. It is a down home type of place, staff was very friendly. Portions were huge. I had a vegetable. plate and they were very good.

I was born in 1957. From an early age I gained an appreciation for homestyle cooking. We didn't have a lot of fast food joints back then. You went with your family to the local diner or cafe. Walking into Neal's brings back all the great memories from my youth. I have tried most everything on the menu and it... More

This is the best place in Springdale to get a home cooked meal. The food is good served by friendly hometown people. This is where you meet friends to have a great meal and a little fellowship.

Neal's is on of those hole in the wall kind of places. The walls are pink with lots of different taxidermy on the walls. The food is always down home cooking and lots of it. The staff is friendly and the service is fast. They are usually packed when you go there, but still the service is fast and food... More

Love love love this place!! Food is amazing, atmosphere is relaxing and laid back. The food is homemade, and the pies are too die for. NOTHING bad about this place. I recommend the broasted chicken. The mashed potatoes are actually homemade!! We go once a week...You gotta try it!

Went for lunch several times. Always expecting something different. Never got any better. Boring food for the price. Seemed like cafeteria food. Pies look good!

This is down home cooking like grandma made. You get generous helping of country meals and must save room for the dessert-- their pies are their hallmark- the meringue is 3 inches high and they are all home made. Fabulous food at a bargain price!

Neal's Cafe has been in business at the same locations since 1944. The food is always fresh and hot and tasty. From it's fabulous fried chicken to pinto beans with onion, it's one of the best down home Southern cafes in the area. Service is prompt and they do come back to see if you are satisfied with your meal.... More

At 1 pm the place was packed, but we picked a table and were waited on right away. My husband had the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans. I had the catfish with fried okra, squash and onion rings. Everything was wonderful! The mashed potatoes were the only weak item, and we wouldn't order it again. Although... More
