Great authentic deli style sandwiches. My only complaint is they are only for lunch. Great pickles and corned meat. Best gluten free sandwich options I've found as well.

There is no shortage of places to get good biscuits in the Triangle. The best, however, are to be found at Neal's Deli. They also have a wide array of homemade soups, sides and sandwiches. Oh, and did I mention I've never had better grits...More

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.
