They have ok Beef & Pork sandwich's, depends on your preference. I was not a fan of the pork, I was disappointed, expecting an outrageous sandwich. The best part of the sandwich was the bread. The prices were high & the seating is part of the Reading Terminal (Limited)

We couldn't wait to get to Philly to try the roast pork we had heard so much about on tv. When we got to reading terminal we got even more excited seeing how good it looked. What a let down! The sandwich was dry and had no flavor. The broccoli rabe was way too overpowering. Like a reviewer a couple... More

I have read a few reviews for Dinics and the bad ones are completely false. If ur looking for a cheese steak. This is not the place to go. If your looking for slow roasted brisket, pork or roast beef. Go here!!!! Sharp provolone Brisket and a few peppers and horseradish is "heaven on earth". Amazing to say the least!!!!... More

Great sandwich. Wish I had gotten another. Recommended by a local this is a wonderful spot to check out. I got the roasted pork sandwich with the sharp provolone cheese. Super tasty and fresh. Well worth the time wandering the Reading Terminal Market to find it.

The sandwich is every but as good as all the hype. Fast service. Good food. I would like it if they sold a cold beer, but the root beer and lemonade is good. The meat is in a soupy sort of mixture that is garlicky and I think it has a touch of horseradish in it. Yummy.

I went here not knowing about it being "famous" reasonable lunch counter in the middle of the market. Fast service, huge portion, good value. I had the roast beef with mixed pepper and sharp provolone!

I was lead to believe that that while the cheesesteak is the outwardly obvious choice for Philly cuisine, that DiNics's pork and broccoli rabe sandwich was the insider's real taste of Philly. I suppose MAYBE it's an acquired taste, but I can't see why. I waited in line for about 15-20 minutes... A good sign, I figured! The sandwich was... More

After being featured on "America's best sandwich" I went in with very high expectations. Their "best sandwich" was actually very bland and tasteless. Their is very little seating and you are crushed in Reading Market. Maybe I came in expecting too much, but I just wasn't particularly impressed.

I was never a fan of roast pork but felt I had to try it after all the hype. Wow. The roast pork sandwich was incredible. Located in the heart of reading terminal there are long lines on busy days. We went early so it was not that bad and they are very quick. Get your sandwich to go and... More

Totally shocked by the line-up but after eating the sandwich, I get it. Had the roast pork, with greens and cheese. Awesome meal. Line moves fast and you'll be happy you invested some time waiting to get your food!
