Saw this place on TV - reviewed by Adam Richmond. Had to give it a try as its not a common eat (surprisingly) in my country. Tried both the beef and pork sandwiches. Both were nice. Came with an unusual (for me) mix of cheese and veg. Good put not sure I'd return - only because there are so many... More

My family and I love the pork sandwich, my favorite sandwich in Philly. I get Pork, Cheese (aged provolone), Peppers (long hots) and Greens (spinach or broccoli rabe), extra wet (spoonful of au ju over the sandwich). Big, messy and amazing.

Wish we would have gotten another sandwich. Roast pork flavorful, not salty or fatty. Bread crusty and soft at the same time. Paired it with a big old pickle from another stand. My friend suggests adding Provolone.

Soooo good on so many levels. Kids loved it. Service friendly, attentive and happy to be there working for the restaurant. Upbeat! Food was terrific and defied all of the pickiest eaters. You will not be leaving hungry or disappointed. Worth the wait and worth every penny. One of the better places to go to in Philly!

Love the Roast Pork and Roast Beef of this place. They prepared your order right before you eyes. Service is friendly and fast. If you're in Philadelphia and staying near Terminal Market don't miss this place.
