In the center of Reading Terminal Market, one must fight one's way to Spataros. The beauty of the market is that everyone in your party can have their favorite foods from different vendors and then find a table in the center to dine together. Spataro's...More

Was so looking forward to their famous cheesesteak and I thought it was dry and a little tasteless. Not a fan.

During a recent conference trip we stayed at a local hotel. One of the things I wanted to try while visiting Philadelphia was a cheesesteak. A friend of ours recommended we visit the marketplace to have one. As we were walking around, I noticed two...More

Best cheese steak I've had in a while! Being that I'm from Miami my choices are slim! Only Miami subs! This worth the walk.

My first time in Philly so I had to get a cheesesteak. The Reading Terminal Market is amazing with tons of food to buy and look at. I didn't know anything about any of the cheesesteak places so I picked this one in the middle...More
