The food is just ok but you do get a lot. The waitress we had wasn't the friendliest and didn't know the difference from canned green beans or fresh. All 3 of our meals were cold thankfully the gravy was hot and they poured it...More

The food here is so good. I usually have enough for two meals. The chicken and dumplings are my favorite. The fried chicken is also great. The pies are beautiful and yummy.

This place is a local favorite. Kind of a funky vibe to it. Popular with truckers (lots of parking). Good basic home-style food, generous portions. The Meat Lovers omelet is stuffed full of meat. Hashbrowns are good and warm. Haven't tried the rest of the...More

Neal's was one (of a few) restaurants recommended by our hotel staff. When we walked in (5:00'ish) a server shouted something to us over her shoulder, and kept on going - no idea what she'd said so a man standing near told us 'have a...More
