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.

The market itself is a little busy,especially on the weekend we went which happened to be the Philadelphia Flower Show weekend. Based upon the reviews read here,we decided on Tommy DiNic's. My wife and I actually licked out and got a counter seat. The pork, sharp provolone and broccoli RAVE (not rabe, because i loved it) was outstanding. My wife... More

Heard about this on the Travel Channel and had to give the "best" sandwich a try. Pork, provolone and broccoli rabe is a great combination-nothing more to say, try one!

So someone told me the trick to grab a stool instead of waiting in line for take out. The counter service is amazingly quick and everybody treats you like an old friend. We had the classic roasted pork sandwich and it was delish.

We came right to the terminal after arriving in town. At lunch of Good Friday, the entire market was crazy busy. The queue to order was wrapped around 2 sides of the place, but it probably took 10 minutes or less for us to order and get a roast pork with cheese and broccoli rabe. Not enough seats at the...
