I also had the roast pork with broccoli rabe. I couldn't finish it. Bitter, no flavor, not much cheese. I think it must be an individual taste thing. I would give that sandwich a one star rating. To be fair, I also tried the brisket...More

We'd read all about the pork sandwich at Tommy DiNic's and had to try one on our visit to the Reading market. Here's the thing, to us, the pork itself didn't have a lot of taste...BUT, the provolone on the bottom and the broccoli rabe...More

Philly is known for its cheesesteaks but for my money there’s nothing better than lunch at DiNic’s. The roast pork and roast beef sandwiches are perfection. Incredibly sharp and savory provolone, meats roasted just right, and long hots that will explode in your mouth. Ask...More

Terrific sandwich place in the Reading terminal market. We got the Italian roast pork, pulled pork and brisket. All good and get them with provolone and greens. The provolone makes a great sandwich even better. Always crowded but line moves and if you can't get...More

I think Dinic would do their best but it will be very difficult seeing it's a big building with all the shops close to each other .... I concur with Mary : ask Dinic directly what they can do.
