The perogies are fantastic and so is the cornbread. I eat here when I'm in a rush. The people you order with are just rude but the cashier was very friendly. Everything looks awesome and very fresh.

This is a great lunch spot. Try the wings and cornbread. Delicious. Do not get discouraged by the lines. It is worth the wait.

They have lots of options here. My daughter loved the mac and cheese and chicken fingers with homemade honey mustard. I had the corn bread which was awesome.

We got a pound of the spicy wings to go with some cornbread. The wings were drenched in the sauce in a good way, but the cornbread made it a fine meal. It was buttery, moist and a tad sweet.

The first time we ate here, it was hard to understand the people behind the counter, but a wonderful local made recommendations for me and she hit the nail right on the head. BBQ chicken, macaroni and cheese, banana cornbread. Yum. This is a busy place and they don't take the time to coddle you through ordering, but if you... More

Was looking for a quick dinner and was walking around the market getting different things to consume in my hotel room. A hot dog was just the thing, along with a side of mararoni & cheese. Both were delicious. Service was efficient.

The chicken is tasty; it is not fried, but baked and then held over an open flame to complete. I rated the chicken average because it seems as though they must break the bones of the wings in order to have them lay flat for baking. This is not child friendly so be careful. The french fries are okay for... More

Since I work in the area I sometimes frequest Reading Terminal Market. Franks- a- lot has an ordering practice that is confusing and food displayed there that isn't even mentioned on the menu. Someone asks you what you want and then gives you a slip to place your order for the items. Since I wanted the salmon burger and a... More

This had a super cheese burger, and great mac and cheese. The only drawback of the mac and cheese was it was a little peppery/spicy for the kids. I loved it!
