Everyone in our party was happy with their breakfast sandwich: eggs, cheese and your choice of meat on an oversized homemade biscuit. WOW. Get your coffee next door from Eye Open Cafe, grab a table outside, and enjoy.

I had been to Neal's several years before, so I knew it was worth the diversion off our trip down I-40. Several notches above the average lunch place. My Chileano Completo was deliciously messy. You say you don't want to eat a hot dog? You think one with sauerkraut, hot sauce, mayonnaise, and guacamole sounds like an abomination? If so,... More

Fabulous sandwiches and sides. Try the Manhattan, my favorite--or the pimento cheese or the chicken salad. The only sandwich I thought fell a bit short was the muffuletta but I only had it one time and that might have been an aberration. I eat here regularly--or rather I "carry out" regularly. It is tiny. But it is an "absolutely don't... More

The food is really good, especially the excellent pastrami. Extremely casual atmosphere with a few tables inside and outside and some stools inside. Good lunch place.

We had read previous reviews and they are correct, their Pastrami sandwiches are fantastic! The meat is fresh, tender and tasty. The service is great as well, friendly and helpful. Will definitely eat there next time we are in town!

On a Food and Beverage Tour, Neal's was one of our stops. Got a sampling of several items on their menu and got to meet the owner. Quaint little deli in a historic town. I think it is a must do on anyone's list who is in that area. Their menu items are unique and very good.
