Great Pork Roast sandwich, well worth waiting in line for

This very popular stand in the Reading Terminal serves one of the best roast pork sandwiches in the country and the one I got for dinner tonight was no exception. Friendly wait staff and since it was near closing time I didn't even have to wait.

Had the roast pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and roasted peppers (plus we added pepperoncini peppers at the bar) and thought it was terrific! Would definitely try it again next time we're in Philly.

Amazingly good sandwich. All of us had the pork roast with provolone and broccoli rabe wet. It was delicious. We'll be back to try the other sandwiches the next time we're back. Long line moves fast.

Got the classic pork sub sandwich and it was great! If you're in Philly, this is a must go. Well worth it!

There is a bit of a line (that moves super fast) and it's completely worth the wait! The best pulled pork I've ever had-excellent seasoning, very juicy, and oh so tender. Loved the sharp provolone and broccoli rabe as toppers. My husband had the roast pork with the same toppings and loved it, too. A must try!

The pork sandwich with rabe and provolone is amazing.. Ask for some extra juice! There is usually a line, but it goes quickly..worth the wait! . Not much counter space. o go or eat outside.

We were on our way to NJ and we're looking for places to e terrain our finicky teens. They love food challenges/tv shows, etc. so we found DinNi's and ventured here for their famous beef, broccoli rabe and sharp provolone sandwich. It was a Saturday and the market was super busy. Their was about 15 (?) stools to eat there... More

This unique roasted pork sandwich served with roasted peppers (sweet or hot), provolone and greens (broccoli or spinach) is oozing with delicious flavor. It is packed at lunch but worth the wait!

This is the best sandwich I have ever had. The Pulled Pork with Sharp Cheese, and sweet peppers, is so Delish! Long lines, and worth it!
