You can get a fresh baked turkey sandwich any way you like and quickly. I love a place that does one thing but very well. It’s in the large market and finding a seat can be a challenge.

I have had a few trips to Philadelphia and while my colleagues all go to Dinic's I've done Original Turkey. Very good turkey meals, sandwiches and plates. Give it a try

Stopped here when we saw the guys carving a turkey. We had the toasted wrap in the display with fried onions, peppers, delicious sauce. The wrap was toasted. That’s the way to make a sandwich. We’ll be back.

We had the 2 and 3 side platter. Turkey was excellent. Very tasty and extremely tender white meat - some of the best we have ever had. Stuffing, corn etc were also very good. This is definitely a place to return. Highly recommended to ALL.

If you like thanksgiving or a good turkey sandwich this is the place for you! They have sides, wraps, or sandwiches that include cranberry sause, mac and cheese, stuffing and potato filling. Service is good and you can modify what you get off the menu.

It’s not very often you come across a restaurant that specializes in turkey, so you sort of feel obligated to see what the big deal is. At the time of writing, the OT is ranked here as one of the top eats in the city,...More

It is nice because you can choose what you want to have in your sandwich or wrap. They are preparing it in front of you and the turkey is delicious.
