The only downside to ordering a pastrami, egg, and cheese biscuit sandwich for breakfast at Neal’s is that once you’ve tried it, it might ruin regular BECs for a while. Neal’s is in Carrboro, a small town that’s home to many graduate students and professors, and that’s just a 20-minute walk or seven-minute drive from UNC’s campus. Head here for the classics, like reuben sandwiches, Italian subs, and dill-heavy chicken salad, alongside Southern staples like pimento cheese on white bread, breakfast biscuit sandwiches, and pickled green tomatoes. Space is limited, so come alone or in a small group if you’re hoping to snag a seat inside or on the front porch.
