The Dinic's beef and pork restaurant is a wonderful stop to fill you to the max with either beef or pork sandwiches. There is little flexibility in the type of bread or the condiments… Only white bread and only a few condiments, but if you're really into beef and pork sandwiches that's the place to be! ...generous portions, good service,...

The Roast Pork with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe... simple perfection!! Great bread, moist and flavorful pork... perfectly complimented by the greens and the sharpness of the cheese. I love sandwiches and would eat them twice a day everyday if my husband wouldn't object. ;) So I have set my sandwich bar pretty high. This sandwich is in my top... More

Your sandwich will include bread and meat. Want cheese? Upcharge. Want onions? Upcharge. Want service with a smile? You don't have that much cash. Meat sammy was good though.

Had the roast pork with broccoli rabe. The pork was juicy and the sharp provolone, which was gooey and melted, added a nice bite. The bread was the right balance of crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I loved the way the au jus soaked into the bottom of the bread--enough to moisten, not enough to make... More

Having heard about Tommy DiNic's for what feels like forever, I simply knew that we had to make it a point to have their roast pork sandwich while we were in Philadelphia. Located inside Reading Terminal Market (which is one of my most favorite places, ever), we quickly located them. The line was tolerable with only 4 people ahead of... More

I would be a regular at DiNic's! Visiting the Flower Show at the Convention Center, we walked over to the Market to have lunch at DiNic's. It was just about noon, and fortunately able to get two seats together without a wait. The counter seats are limited, so if you plan to eat there, you will have to wait! There... More

If you're going to visit DiNic's in the Reading Terminal Market, you need to put your game face on. As the lunch hour approaches, and the lines get thicker and longer, it gets pretty crazy. There's probably more action in the jostling for line space and, if you're really lucky, a place to sit down, than at a Flyers' game.... More
