I had the pork once before but love the beef sub alot better. I also just prefer the cheese and hot peppers, not the greens. Excellent sandwich. This place is very popular and crowded during peak times. I ate at the one in Redding Terminal.

The roast pork sangwich at DiNic's is one of the best sangwiches I have ever had. Thinly sliced, juicy pork with sharp provolone and perfectly cooked broccoli rabe. The portion size is only for the seriously hungry. I'd definitely be a regular if I was a local.

Amazing amazing amazing. One of the best things I've eaten.... in a world traveler. We come back to run the philly half every year just to go here and got the pork sand. So freaking good. Melt in your mouth pork with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. We typically eat her twice and then carry several home. My husband is... More

I tried the roast pork sandwich with provolone and broccoli rabe. I loved that they use sharp provolone.. it was something the sandwich definitely needed. The pork itself just really needed more flavor. They say it's the "best", but I just wasn't into it.

My husband and I tried the roast pork sandwich with spinach. It was very good! The service was fast and the staff was friendly.

I stopped by here about 20 minutes prior to closing time and ordered the pork and broccoli rabe sandwich with provolone. I'd been looking forward to ordering this sandwich for MONTHS and had most recently seen it featured in the Food Network Magazine. I waited maybe 8 minutes before eating the sandwich and noticed that the paper the sandwich was... More

Stopped on a Saturday for lunch. Market was super busy but we were lucky enough to find two seats. Service was decent. I'm not sure what the big hype is about the pork and broccoli sandwich. Nothing special to me really.

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
