So disappointed. Bland and lifeless pork. Raw garlic flavor. Skunky cheese. Poorly cooked greens. Why is this place popular?

After seeing this on the food channel I have to say I was skeptical. Just the combination of flavors didn't sound good. HOW I WAS WRONG. The pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and sharp cheddar cheese was amazing. It reminded me of a Chicago style Italian Beef. In my opinion this is far better than the cheesesteaks that I had... More

First stop Reading Terminal- DiNics Roast Pork Broc Rabe and Sharp Provolone, with long hots pleaseee. So good that it's hard to top but we still gave it a go. DiNics is always my one or two favorite RPBRP's in Philly (rotates with Tony Lukes) but they had their A Game going. Grabbed a few stools at the bar- a... More

I love a good sandwich and the Hand-Carved Beef Brisket w/ sharp provolone is one of my favorites! Reading Terminal Market has great atmosphere with lots of places to eat, but my choice is always Dinic's.

Thinly sliced, highly flavorful pork sandwich was terrific. Topped with a delicious sauteed broccoli rabe with a tiny kick of heat. A substantial amount of creamy, smoky provolone brought the whole sandwich together. Delicious. I don't eat bread, but my dinner mate raved about the soft, tender roll. Most importantly, we arrived just a few minutes before they closed, but... More

I tried after reading about it and because is famous in Reading, but honestly only the fast service makes this one stand out from other pork places in Philly. I think that there are better sandwich places in Reading terminal.

When I told some friends that I was visiting Philadelphia everyone said that I had to visit Tommy DiNic's in Reading Terminal Market. After a morning wandering around the tourist attractions I ended up at the Market. Maybe it was fate, but one of the first places I saw was DiNic's - it was very busy but there was a... More

First time to Philly and was told the roast pork sandwich was the city's original sandwich. While at Reading Market, tried the roast pork sandwich at Dinic's. Wow...it was absolutely delicious. Fresh, tender, recently roasted pork in a fresh bun. I added sharp provolone and banana peppers. What a combination... it was very good. If this is your first time,... More
