Reading Terminal Market was on our list of places to go in Philly and while we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the market and studying the various shops, food vendors and stalls, we knew we were going to have a hard decision to make regarding where to eat. With some assistance from the locals, we chose DiNics and we were glad... More

Every time I go to Philly I try to make it to DiNic's. After winning Adam Richman's best sandwich in America a while back I guess you better be prepared to wait longer for the special treat. I got lucky as there were only 4 folks ahead of me when I got there but about 20 after I picked up... More

Whenever we are visiting Reading Terminal Market around lunch time we head to DiNic's for pork sandwiches. There is always a long, fast-moving line for carryout, and we have never had problems finding a seat at the counter after a short wait. Some day we will need to try the beef sandwiches as the meat looks really good. I always... More

I had to try this famous sandwich place. The sandwiches are great, i had both the roast pork and pulled pork. My favorite is the pulled pork, the classic roast pork sandwich was a little bitter for my taste. The sandwich stand is in the middle of an indoor market in Center City Philadelphia. A small amount of stools outline... More

the pork sandwich was good, but I do not understand how it was voted as the best sandwich in the country.

The pulled pork is incredible. Well, everything there is amazing, but that's my favorite. I like it with sweet peppers and sharp provolone. The service is great. The line moves fast so don't shy away if it's long.

After doing a tour of the Reading Terminal Market, we went back to Tommy DiNic's to get a roast pork sandwich. The line was long, but we jumped in. We found that they've got a great system and the line moves quickly. We were hoping for a place at the counter, but no such luck. The sandwiches were great! One... More

I have had roast pork many places and DiNic's never disappoints. This location is as good as any. It is big, so tasty, and must when hitting the Reading Terminal Market. If you go with others and think you may not be in the mood for one, you'll end up staring at theirs and regretting yoir choice.
