This is one of the most simple food concepts anywhere. You walk in, see the menu on the wall, step up to the counter, pay, get your drink cup and help yourself to you favorite beverage. Refills are free. The menu is simple, and the food is always delicious. I've found this to be true at other Newk's Cafes in... More

Clean restaurant, nice atmosphere and food with tasty and fresh ingredients . We were a party of 16 and had little wait time to receive our food. They offer a twist to tasty pizzas and sandwiches. The Mediterranean and Spicy Chicken pizzas were great.

My wife ordered the Ultimate Salad and I had the Royal Sandwich for the first time. It was absolutely mouth watering good. We both had their fresh iced tea. Service was both good and fast. We made teas to take with us when we were done. Neck's is one of those places no matter where you find one, that the... More

I had the ultimate salad (one of the best salads I ever ate) and a soda and it was over $12 for lunch. Granted the salad was oversized but the cost of the salad and the drink for counter service is a bit steep. Would go back, try a cheaper salad and just have water. Still, why are salads $10... More

Great place to get soups and sandwhiches which is not my normal preference but this place is different in a good way

We have a huge collection of cups from this place, and lately it has not been the same good old tasty eatery. This mutt loves the Steak Sandwich, but lately we’ve noticed that the portions have gotten smaller, and sloppier. There is no taste and the prices are higher. I know that times, crews, and taste change; however, they are... More

Excellent salads and great toppings. Try the Newks fav salad. Fun casual place for lunch or dinner. Crispy snaking bread sticks are handy while waiting on your meal.

My wife ordered the personal pan pepperoni pizza with drink and I ordered the Newk's club sandwich. They were both prepared to perfection and the service was quick. The only reason I downgraded them to four stars is that on this visit they were slow to clean up the tables after patrons had departed their tables. This is not normally... More

Good food however it freaks us out when the wait staff brings the meal to the table with their bare hands. Please understand what we mean. Visualize someone bringing you a bowl of soup with their fingers (not gloved) in position holding the edge of the soup bowl. We've called the health department to report it but no one has... More

Men - eat before you go here, or you will leave hungry. Small portions served at high prices. Your itsy bitsy teeny wife will probably enjoy it.
