Was at a convention across the street, tried the pork and broccoli sandwich. Really good, but being voted best sandwich in the country I was expecting a bit more. Overall worth a trip

An absolute MUST HAVE when visiting Philadelphia. DiNic's roast pork sandwich arguably rivals the traditional Philly cheesesteak. I opted for the roast pork with spinach and cheese, while the others in my party had broccoli rabe or peppers (instead of spinach) on their sandwiches. Their...More

Seeing the sandwiches on TV you get a feel that the sandwiches are good. Reality is that once you try them, the sandwiches are extraordinary. Try the pork, with sharp provolone and, if you like spicy foods, with pepers.

Very famous place for a good reason. I went for the Classic Roast Pork, Sliced with Broccoli Rabe and Sharp Provolone. OUTSTANDING juicy and bitter and sharp!

I had heard that this was a good place to try a pork sandwich. I had only a small choice of things to put on it and picked the peppers and cheese. They also put broccoli on the sandwich. It gave it a different flavor.

With so much focus on Philly cheesesteak, a visitor to Philadelphia must get a sandwich from DiNic's. The best food we encountered on our 3 day adventure to the area. Make sure to try the staff's recommendation, they know what they're doing.

Uniquely delicious porchetta sandwich, thinly sliced roast pork, sharp provolone and broccoli rabe or spinach on one of the great Italian rolls in existence. Also has great roast beef. Very few visitors are disappointed. If you like roast pork, don't miss it.

Was in town visiting with my hubby, sister and her hubby. They had never been to Reading Terminal so decided to have lunch there. We all went for the pork sandwich! I mean we all got one each! Way more than any one human needs,...More

Can you accommodate food allergies to dairy, eggs, peanut, tree nut? My son loves pork but would need to know there is no cross contamination. Thanks!

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.
Traveling to DC for a Girls Cherry blossom weekend. Stopping in Philly for lunch. How easy is it to get to Tommy DiNic's from the highway and if we have one stop is Tommy DiNics the place?

not easy access passing thru.
Hi Joe, Do you regularly eat at DiNic's? If so what is the earliest they are up and running each day. Our plan is to not have to wait in a queue and we will be arriving in Philly at 9am and hungry! Thanks!
