The menu is clear and easy to understand. Lots of choices. The food is served hot with all the right sides. The fries are excellent. I like Neal's because it is down to earth; nothing fancy. Reasonably priced good food in a nice atmosphere. Easy parking and they have outside seating too (in case you bring Fido).

Had lunch here the afternoon before our flight home. Good choice of food freshly prepared at the open kitchen. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced for San Fran.

I had not been in a long time, and now remember why. I had a salad that was not very good. Limited accommodation for gluten free. Very traditional American food.

If you're looking for a great breakfast or lunch, nothing fancy but tasty, Neal's in your place. You can usually find a free table or even eat outside on their small patio. Friendly, efficient staff and attentive to your needs.

Their senior menu can't be beaten. Lots of choices and includes soup or salad and dessert. My husband always says when I die, he will just live at Neal's. Great breakfast fare and a low calorie menu as well. I had filet of sole with mashed potatoes and veggies, with salad and ice cream for dessert. Friends had meatloaf with... More
