I went here twice during a recent trip to Philly. The Roast Pork with Sharp Provolone and Broccoli Rabe was good, but I do wish it had more juice on it. I made the mistake of ordering it normal the first time and I could tell the sandwich would be great with more broth, the parts of the sandwich that were saturated in the broth were amazing but the rest was fairly dry and underwhelming. So I went a second time and ordered it wet, but they must not have relayed my order correctly because once again, the sandwich was fairly dry except in a few spots. I know if this was served with a side of broth to dip it in like a french dip it would be amazing. As is, if you don't get it wet, it's not really worth $10 per sandwich in my opinion. Do yourself a favor and order it wet and cross your fingers and hope they get the order right.

Wasn't overly impressed after reading such great things. Went with the roast pork, rabe and provolone as described in articles proclaiming it "best sandwich in America" and ended up disappointed. I was shocked the pork didn't have more flavor and didn't much care for the broccoli rabe as a counterpoint to anything else in the sandwich even as someone who has enjoyed the bitter spiciness of rabe in the past. I should've gone with my gut and got Italian pork or beef and peppers but figured I had to try this combo while in town. I cant say for sure, but I would recommend ordering what your gut tells you rather than this combo if you aren't that adventurous.

Located inside the Reading Terminal Market, this place has the best roast pork. I got this sandwich and added sharp provolone and broccoli rabe. You can find a nice seat on the counter and they get you your sandwich pretty fast. It's a good size too; I split one with someone and it kept me full for lunch. Very friendly people behind the counter!

1000+ glowing reviews + recommended again and again by fellow yelpers + featured handful of times on Food Network? Even though nothing about a roasted pork, provolone, broccoli rabe sandwich particularly appealed to me, I couldn't resist and see what the hype was about. Even though there was a line wrapped around the counter, I got my sandwich in no time. My husband and I immediately hurried off to find a nearby table to enjoy the sandwich but before we had the chance to unwrap the sandwich, the sandwich paper was drenched and soaked through by the juice of the roasted pork. The paper was stuck to the bread - first impression: soggy hot mess. The sandwich as a whole I thought really lacked flavor. The roasted pork could definitely use more seasoning. The broccoli and provolone cheese (each an extra dollar) didn't add anything to the texture or taste profile. It was an underwhelming one dimensional aka plain sandwich. Wished I had another chance to redo Reading Terminal Market again, I would definitely skip DiNic's. Until next time Philly!

Wow, I am pretty sure the roast pork sandwich with broccoli rabe was the best sandwich I have ever eaten in my life. My gustatory cortex was not quite equipped to handle the magnitude of tastiness of the stimuli it encountered. My dopamine reward networks exceeded two standard deviations of baseline activation. My brain was on fire and the broccoli rabe was the firewood. My cognition was in overdrive and the pork was the fuel. I recommend this sandwich more than I would recommend myself on a free-response college admissions essay. Please eat this sandwich and bear witness to the self-actualization that follows therewith.

Their roast pork sandwich. Oh my. We went to the Reading Terminal Market a few years back and checked in on Facebook - thankfully a friend recommended this place. We decided to give it a try, but by then they ran out of broccoli rabe, However, we still got the roast pork sandwich with provolone and green peppers. It was fantastic - it was so moist and flavorful. I can't wait to go back to Philly just to eat this sandwich. Cheese steaks are ok. This sandwich blows those out of the water. I can't understand how cheese steaks became a famed Philadelphia must-try when this was there.
