Have been coming here for years and food has been excellent each time. CFS is not to thick with coating, has an excellent taste. The dishes that accompany the meals are very good. The scenery is dynamic, we usually stay during the winter time, less hectic and good time for couples.

We went here as kids and boy has it changed. Stopped by on the Motorcycles in early July and went back Today 7/23 again. Nice place to have breakfast in the hill country.

Eating a Neal's while camping in Concan is a family tradition, started over 23 years ago! Our visit isn't complete until we've shopped at Frio Dry Fifty and eaten dinner at Neal's! If we're lucky, we'll eat a breakfast at Neal's too! The food is always delicious with fresh tea and warm biscuits and butter to stave off hunger until... More

Great home cooking, daily specials, reservations for groups, perfect after a day on the river. We eat there every time I visit my parents. Love the food.

We have enjoyed Neal's for over 20 years. A great place to make memories. We just got back from another family vacation with 20 family members. Friendly staff, clean cabins and lodges and great tubing on the Frio River!!!

Had breakfast here during spring break. It was fabulous. The server was good. The building was clean with plenty of seating room. I'm sure as the summer season gets here it will be full and have a waiting line. I won't mind waiting if the food stays as tasty as it was March 2016
