Gotta get the Roast Pork with everything...Unbelievable! It's a must have with the provolone and broccoli rabe. This is what they are famous for! I hit the one up at the Reading Terminal Market...line was long but well worth the wait!

When I heard best sandwich in America I was expecting big flavor, delicious succulent pork, flavorful au jus, crispy greens, just an amazing sandwich. Wow what a disappointment. Sandwich was definitely a letdown. Super confused how anyone considers that sandwich the best in America. Don’t waste your time or $ there’s much better food options in the market…or anywhere in...

The counter service was a plus in this busy marketplace. However, the staff could free up their limited seating space quicker if they were more focused on customer service than standing around talking to each other.

We were looking for a fun casual lunch and the guys at the hotel recommended Tommy DiNic's. We went to reading terminal and grabbed seats at the counter. Luckily there was no wait. We ordered a roast pork with broccoli rabe and provolone. The rabe was key because it had the garlic. The pork was wet and nice. Solid sandwich.... More

From the pulled pork to the hot peppers to the provolone cheese to the rolls, everything is top notch. The slow cooked pork is seasoned and marinated perfectly. This sandwich is worth the wait if there is a line.

I was born and raised in NJ approximately 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, yet it took me a good part of the last 20 years to finally make it to their location. In the past my go-to was always a cheese steak, but from now on I'm not leaving Philadelphia with out getting a roast pork from Tommy DiNic's. The flavors... More

This is the place. There may be others like it but this is the real deal. I've been several times on business trips and have always had the roast pork with sharp provolone and greens (broccoli rabe). It's amazing. I've been telling my wife about this place for years, but she never understood my enthusiasm, until we visited Philly this... More
