Came through Reading Terminal while I was in town for a convention. A colleague mentioned Tommy DiNic's was voted best sandwich by one of the food channels. So, I figured I'd give it a try (sliced pork, au jus, broccoli rabe and provolone). Honestly, didn't sound great to me but...when in Rome. Sandwich was amazing, better than I could've imagined....

The cheesesteak was freshly made, but we had better. We also had worse. Not enough cheese, meat a bit dry

I love the unassuming, hustle and bustle atmosphere amid a market place. Your mouth will water as they carve the roast pork, hand slice the provolone, top it with perfectly cooked broccoli rabe, and put this in the one and only best Philadelphia roll, all right in front of your eyes. I love waiting to get a seat, as my... More

Roast Pork sandwich to die for. Came here on a recommendation from a local. Located at Redding Terminal. I was not even hungry, however once I tried the sandwich / roll I could not stop. Must try if in Town.

Im not sure what is happening with the other reviews here, Tommy's is a classic and delicious, its also pretty cheap and affordable, and downright delicious. I wish they expanded and opened an actual restaurant. Services is always fast and friendly.

They're right in the middle of Reading Terminal Market so come shop around and take a break here for the roast pork sandwich. It truly is a good meal...full of juicy, delicious goodness. Pricing isn't outrageous (3 people = $40) and their seating arrangement within the terminal is nice. Staff was great to work with as well. All in all...if... More

This is always crowded. There is a small counter. One reviewer said they were not impressed by the steak. You are not going for the steaks.. This is not pulled barbecue pork it i slow cooked. From the basic you can add on sharp provolone, broccoli and roasted peppers or just opt for horseradish. Messy when you put more items... More

We wanted to try a Phily cheesesteak, it was late, so maybe that was something to consider. It was't great, but service was fast and friendly. It was pretty big and cheap.

We went to Tommy DiNic's for lunch and not a pork sandwich with cheese and greens. Both myself and my boyfriend were not impressed. There are so many better things to eat the Reading Terminal Market.
