The Real Deal in Cleveland Circle is a great restaurant with pizza, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and panini. Counter service to eat in and take out. I had an adult grilled cheese, smoked brisket, smoked gouda cheese, caramelized onions, grilled. Great! Will be back.

The food here is great.... pizza, burgers, fries, everything. It all tastes super fresh and is not heavy on your stomach. We usually get the parm fries which are delicious and either pizza or the chicken cutlet sandwich. Never disappointed!

The Real Deal is a great spot for pizza and sandwiches in the Cleveland Circle area. The pizza slices are huge and the sandwiches are generously sized. Everything is delicious and you will probably have leftovers for another meal. I recommend the buffalo chicken pizza...More

The food is amazing (and the portions are big, one $3 piece of pizza fills me up). The people are nice. If you're hungry in Cleveland Circle, this is the place to go.

The sandwiches at Real Deal are a bit greasy, but always tasty, and the portions are very generous. Downsides are there's limited seating in the restaurant and you'll frequently have to wait.

There is some seating but Real Deal is suited for fast take out with very high quality. It is a neighborhood gem for the types of food they serve,

Eat here almost every Friday for lunch. Love the pizza slices, especially the AL Fresco. Salad and sandwiches are great too. Always fresh & well priced. It's excellent! .

The food here is always fresh and delicious. The only complaint is how long the food takes to make. It definitely is longer than most sandwich places - however, the quality is well worth the wait!

Love the food here, both sandwiches and salads are worth trying! Love the Pacific salad, buffalo chicken salad and any of the sandwiches, especially the Chicken Parm!

I went to try their Monster burgers which were great. I had the Green Monster with cheese, bacon, avocado and more. Salads are fresh and they have great seasonal options. I just tried the Al Fresco Pizza which had sausage, ricotta and roasted red peppers....More
