I found the Reading Terminal Market as it was close to my hotel. When I got there, I walked around for about 10 minutes scouting out some of the places. This place is huge and I wasn’t sure where to eat. I found the place...More

Like many others have said I wish I'd checked reviews before deciding to get food here! I had the cheesesteak and it was very disappointing. The bread was nice and although there was a large amount of meat, it was dry and flavourless and there...More
