Was a stop on our Taste Carolina Food Tour. Enjoyed a tasty sample of a corned beef sandwich, home made sauerkraut and pickled green tomatoes. Can't wait to go back for a full sized portion. Not to be missed if hungry and in the area.

We visited Neal's as part of a Taste Carolina food tour. Neal gave us the pastrami biscuit and pimiento cheese biscuit, both of which are 100% house made and they were amazing!!! We can't wait to go back and try more items!!

It may be a little hole in the wall but the food is excellent! Nothing like a Pastrami on rye with mustard. My wife had the Pastrami Reuben. Both very good. Would highly recommend.

This place is small and inside seating is limited (there are outdoor picnic tables in the shade right on the street that are also available in the warmer months), but don't let that stop you from eating here. I've never had anything in the menu...More

I have eaten at this locale twice now. I was hoping that it would better then my first. Both time a party of 2 and on both occasions we left very disappointed. There sandwiches are both expensive and very skimpy on the meats etc.
