Was in a hurry but they were very quick and efficient preparing my very tasty roast beef special. The whole wheat wrap was also tasty.

I stopped by the Hatville Deli when I was visiting Philadelphia and boy was I happy I stopped there on time. I arrived around 3:40pm not knowing that they close at 4:00pm. The proprietor was an Amish lady whom was very friendly and didn't mind me getting there just before closing. I ordered the corned beef sandwich platter, and wow... More

Stopped here because I saw how good and fresh the shaved meats looked, and because I saw them making the sandwiches. I love pastrami, but I hate it when it's stringy, too thick, rubbery, and all the other negative things it can often be. But this sandwich was awesome. I got the special, which came on fresh rye bread with... More

Came to the reading terminal for lunch. Everywhere was busy including this place, but the line moved quickly. I ordered the roast beef sandwich and the prices were pretty fair. The food also came quickly. But the best part was that the sandwich was really tasty! Probably one of the best deli sandwiches I've had. I would definitely come back... More

(And depending on my travels home, I try to get a sandwich or two home). This place is THAT good! I have had their turkey,... More

This was a great place to eat in Readng Terminal Market!! It is such a fun place to eat, and a very positive thing about this place is that they have quite a few counter seats - as well as serving scrumptious sandwiches. This is a family owned business, and we enjoyed visiting with the owners - so friendly!! Their... More

If you are looking for a great and BIG Pastrami on Rye, this is the place for you!!. Located in the middle of the insanely busy Reading Terminal Market, this Deli Counter offers great sandwiches, wraps and other deli delights. We watched the sandwich maker agog at the Zen like zone she was in as she expertly assembled sandwich after... More
