Description: “Real” is a popular term used virtually everywhere, real or not. In in our opinion, if you use that word you had better be prepared to back it up every day. What’s Real? Real is knowing your neighbors, creating a friendly environment where smiling faces are the norm, not just a pleasant surprise.Real is giving your customers more than what they’ve come to expect. We’re all more food savvy these days. We know quality when we taste it and we demand the same quality that we insist on at home. At The Real Deal we strive to use only the freshest ingredients to create genuine food at affordable prices for your family. So what’s the deal? It’s simple. It’s real fresh, real good.

“Huge menu, good food, slow service”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Menu is huge - has to be at least 30 sandwich/wrap options. They also have pizza, salads and sides. Food is usually pretty good but take-out is incredibly slow - to the point where we pretty much stopped going here. More of a take-out place, but there are a couple small tables.

I'd recommend calling ahead for pick-up instead of walking in, unless you want to spend your night at Real Deal.

“Delicious Lunch Stop”
Reviewed December 4, 2009

If you can't find something you like here, you've got problems! The menu is enormous and everything I've tried (pizza, subs, salad) has been awesome. They are friendly, quick, and budget-friendly for Boston. I can see why they are successful and continue to open more restaurants! Very highly recommended

“Good sandwiches, Good value”
Reviewed March 26, 2009

Reminds me of a smaller version of the Jason's Deli chain. Great spot for a sandwich and chips.
