First time visit after hearing good reviews. Service was adequate. We both had a BBQ sandwich and it was very bland. I don't know if we had leftover Q from the previous day but it seemed dry. No smoke flavor. It wasn't the worst we have had but I didn't see any reason to return.

Just be sure you get there well ahead of closing time or you definitely won't get much "good ole southern hospitality". We got there about 30 minutes before closing time and while they were still serving people in line ahead of us, they only took an order from one of us (there were 3 of us) and prepared it in...

The BBQ at Neal's is served pulled pork style. Their sandwiches - served on hamburger buns - never disappoint, and the BBQ plate comes with hash, rice, potato salad, 3 slices of bread, sauce, and sweet pickles. For about $8 (without drink), the BBQ plate makes a good meal for 2. Other available sides include chips and baked beans, while... More

I like the BBQ flavor of Neal's BBQ. The other brother's place (also called Neal's in Harlem, GA) is closed but had better food. The good taste and the fact that I have never actually been sick after eating at Neal's are the only good points - equals two stars. Very popular. Parking lot is a small gravel affair full... More

Just make sure you go on the right days and call first to see what they are serving that day! They are only open Thursday to Sunday. My picky 5 yr old ate two huge catfish fillets. So good!!!

We have been to Neal's about 6 times now, We have had the BBQ, Chicken and fish. The BBQ is a huge plate and really good. I get the green beans instead of slaw or potatoe salad. Because there green beans are so good. The other BBQ place in town is a dumpster fire horrible. Everything is straight out of... More

Please don't waste your money here. My family went on a vacation at Mistletoe State Park nearby and we wanted some barbque. I googled for restaurants nearby and all of the barbque places had bad reviews except for this one, so we chose to get a family size meal of pulled pork and Brunswick stew. After only a couple bites,... More
