REAL PIZZA CARRYOUT, 8841 Belair Road, Perry Hall. Open Monday-Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Phone: 256-0220.
Don't let the name mislead you; this little carryout tucked into a tiny strip of shops has more than real pizza to go. There are real soups and salads, real pastas, real Italian baked specialties, real hoagies in three sizes (6-inch, 9-inch and 12-inch) and some real tasty side dishes.
We had a variety of appetites in tow the night we dropped in, so we tasted a little bit of everything. The day's special -- Eggplant Parmesan with garlic bread -- was declared the best bargain at $2.99. It was pretty tasty, too.
