Terrific sandwich place in the Reading terminal market. We got the Italian roast pork, pulled pork and brisket. All good and get them with provolone and greens. The provolone makes a great sandwich even better. Always crowded but line moves and if you can't get...More

The roast pork hoagie with provalone spinach and garlic is awesome. It is to be savored. Eaten slowly. Enjoyed. A great taste. A meal in and of itself. At the same time filled with great complex flavors and yet simple. Definitely a treat.

Seems like the hype is overblown for the roast pork sandwich. It's ok but I was kind of sad that it took up precious space in my stomach. I generally like garlic in pretty much everything but oh boy, expect tons of spicy garlic if...More

A day trip to Philly in November. It was cold and the market seemed a great place. We had the pulled pork sandwich. The Greens, Provolone Cheese, and pork in the French style baguette all go together so well. While not healthy it isn't as...More

I think Dinic would do their best but it will be very difficult seeing it's a big building with all the shops close to each other .... I concur with Mary : ask Dinic directly what they can do.
