I stopped by the Hatville Deli when I was visiting Philadelphia and boy was I happy I stopped there on time. I arrived around 3:40pm not knowing that they close at 4:00pm. The proprietor was an Amish lady whom was very friendly and didn't mind me getting there just before closing. I ordered the corned beef sandwich platter, and wow... More

Stopped here because I saw how good and fresh the shaved meats looked, and because I saw them making the sandwiches. I love pastrami, but I hate it when it's stringy, too thick, rubbery, and all the other negative things it can often be. But this sandwich was awesome. I got the special, which came on fresh rye bread with... More

Came to the reading terminal for lunch. Everywhere was busy including this place, but the line moved quickly. I ordered the roast beef sandwich and the prices were pretty fair. The food also came quickly. But the best part was that the sandwich was really tasty! Probably one of the best deli sandwiches I've had. I would definitely come back... More

When I am in Philly it is for work and I am at the convention center which is next store to Reading Terminal, and at least 2-3 times, I will eat at Hatville for lunch. (And depending on my travels home, I try to get a sandwich or two home). This place is THAT good! I have had their turkey,... More

This was a great place to eat in Readng Terminal Market!! It is such a fun place to eat, and a very positive thing about this place is that they have quite a few counter seats - as well as serving scrumptious sandwiches. This is a family owned business, and we enjoyed visiting with the owners - so friendly!! Their... More

If you are looking for a great and BIG Pastrami on Rye, this is the place for you!!. Located in the middle of the insanely busy Reading Terminal Market, this Deli Counter offers great sandwiches, wraps and other deli delights. We watched the sandwich maker agog at the Zen like zone she was in as she expertly assembled sandwich after... More

Offers large selection of sandwiches to eat in or take out. I decided to order a Ham & Swiss Sandwich on Rye to go to take on the plane. Was very good -- good sized portions -- combo comes with chips & a drink. Way better quality & prices than airport food :)

The Reading Market is full of places to eat (over 160 I'm told), but our favorite (no, we didn't try them all) was the Hatville Deli. The prices are great (around $8 for a sandwich, chips and drink), the food is excellent, and the young people working the counter are pleasant, welcoming and efficient. That's why it's been in the...
