We have ordered food from The Original Turkey several times. It has been consistently excellent. Their turkey breast is fresh and tasty. At this last visit my husband and I each ordered the half sandwich(with cranberry sauce on whole wheat) with turkey noodle soup and we shared a side of Mac and cheese. There are several bread choices - all extremely fresh. Everything was delicious. The servings were quite generous as well.

The "special" sandwich from Original Turkey may be my favorite sandwich of all time. It's a turkey, cole slaw, and special/russian style dressing sandwich. I eat it every time I go to Reading Terminal Market!

My son loves eating here. They never let us down. Awesome, keep up the good work! He chose the turkey platter with two sizes. He had plenty of food and was stuffed when we left. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great job!

Best turkey sandwich! Tasted like Thanksgiving dinner between bread. We enjoyed turkey with crandberry sauce-wished we had thought to order with dressing!! The bread was fresh, tasted home baked, soft. Hint: one sandwich is plenty for two people.

We had the turket lunch (turkey, mashed potatos, gravey, green beans, stuffing, and bread. The turkey was moist, the bread soft and the mashed potatos and gravey very good. However, the green beans were garlicy - not expected- and the stuffing dry.
