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.

Neal's Deli makes an amazing hot dog. Try the Chileano completo and you'll never try anything else on the menu. Who thought of a hot dog with kraut, avacado salsa, and hot sauce on a pretzel bun? Yes it sounds crazy but its delicious. Neal's fits Carrboro to a T; friendly but funky. They seem to really care about the... More

Neal's makes the very best breakfast biscuits! This is my favorite place for a yummy quick breakfast in Carrboro. I usually get the sausage, egg and cheddar. Recently i switched it up and tried the sausage, cheddar and apple biscuit. It was a great combo of flavors. The apples and cheddar had a nice smooth flavor to compliment the slightly... More
