The payoff for serving on jury duty in the city of brotherly love.

The roast pork with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone is simply magnificent. The Italian roast beef is typically gone by later in the afternoon, so get there early.

All of the sandwiches are great! The brisket is my favorite. There is always a line of people waiting for a sandwich, but goes quickly. It is worth every minute of the wait!

I have been going to the Reading Terminal Market since I was a child. The market contains a vast number of both prepared food vendors and fresh foods of all types. Its customers are travelers and conventioneers but far more locals getting the freshest foods available. Dinic's is a long time vendor which sells basically roast pork, barbcue and sausages... More

Had the Roasted Pork, Broccoli rabe, Provolone sandwich rated the best sandwich in America by food net. Not even close to the best it was very good but not the best. Line moves fast and take plenty of napkins.

First of all, the Reading Terminal Market is a zoo, I could barely walk in there. I went straight for Dinic's based on all I have heard on TV and obviously the other 100 people in line did too. The line moved very quickly and the employees had a good system to get people through. Good luck trying to find... More

What an awesome stand in the Reading Terminal Market! No wonder people line up and wait here. Service was very friendly even at the end of a busy Saturday. I asked for my pork, provolone and broccoli rabe sandwich to be packed to go home for reheats the next day and they happily obliged. I have eaten here before and... More

If your looking for something overly seasoned and loaded with condiments like a cheese steak, wrong place. If your looking for something that is so natural, simple and straight forwardly GOOD, look no further. I just wish I would have discovered them years ago. I can only imagine how many roast pork sandwich's I would've had by now. Thanks Tommy... More

You can get a cheese steak anywhere, come to DiNic's and try their Roast Pork sandwich. I got mine with hot peppers and sharp (and they aren't kidding) provolone and it was terrific. There are two locations and I went to the one in the Reading Terminal Market off Arch Street. It's an old-school lunch counter in the middle of... More
