I have been wanting to go to this place in the inside market. It is always packed. Now I know why. We ordered two sandwiches I had the pork sandwich and it was out of this world. And my girl had the roast beef sandwich which was also excellent. Both sandwiches were very tasty and lots of flavor and juicy.... More

Made this a must eat at place on our recent trip to Philly due to all the glowing reviews (and the fact that i love roast pork), but I have to say I was disappointed. The provolone cheese was not good at all and was unfortunately so melted into the sandwich that I could not simply remove it. Couldn't even... More

I had the beef brisket sandwich with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe. After I couple bites, I pulled off the provolone and broccoli because it was too over powering and unable to taste the beef. After that, it was very good. Great place to visit.

Like almost 100% of folks who read DiNic's TA reviews, my wife and I had the pork sandwich. Either I didn't ask, or they left off the broccoli rabe which may have improved a kinda bland tasting sandwich. The roll was great, the pork tender, and the provolone tasty.....but it could have come from Arby's based on taste alone. We... More

Managed to get seats at the counter. Good, attentive service and food was wonderful as always. You have to do the roast pork with provolone and broccoli rabe.

We went to the Reading Terminal Market to recover from the flight. It was a hike from the Doubletree City Center. I’d imagine it’s a pain to park near there and the building itself isn’t all that easy to get into, either. Seating is really catch-as-catch-can. But all of that is worth it for a sandwich from DiNic’s. If there's... More

Title says it all really. Nice sandwich but expensive. Wasn't mind blowing but was decent. Would say 3.5 stars if I could....there's so much more on offer at the market don't think a pork sandwich should be your first and only choice!

Man vs Food must have been on drugs when they awarded this joint the best sandwich in America. I wouldn't call this the best sandwich in Hong Kong, let alone America. OK, maybe in Hong Kong......! The roast pork was very tender, and was nicely complemented by the broccoli rabe. But it was still a bland sandwich when it was... More

Not bad, but not the best in the market. I like lots if flavor which I didn't get here even though I paid the extra for the cheese and greens. It was my first time and a guy in line with me highly recommended the brisket. I got one with spicy and one with sweet peppers. I also got one... More
