This place serves the best corned beef sandwich ever.  The Russian dressing and slaw are both delicious in and of themselves.  The corned beef is sliced to perfection, and are given in generous portions.  Combined, the textures, flavors, and portions are filling and satisfying to every taste bud in your mouth.  Get the combo meal.  They have lemonade!  And sit so you can watch the master sandwich artist herself whip out a sandwich in no more than 1.5 minutes.

This place is great - the meat is very fresh and their prepared dips are incredible! My favorite is the spicy artichoke crab dip...it is AMAZING! They have many different selections of meat and cheese and will allow you to sample if you can't decide which you want. If only they were open 7 days a week!

I really enjoy my food at Hatville Deli.  It's always a treat to try the special of the week, and a great deal as well!  If you get a chance, definitely try their corned beef special.  The staff is accommodating, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, and helpful.  I have been there enough where they know who I am by face at this point, and are always very kind and genuine to me. The food, though, is wonderful, since the ingredients are fresh and wholesome. I highly recommend this establishment.

My wife and I get the same thing every time because it is just that good: the smoked turkey special. I'm getting hungry thinking about it. Their smoked turkey is top notch. All their meats are. Just get meat on bread and you'd be happy. However, my wife and I can't resist the special which includes coleslaw and Russian dressing. Sublime. I'd also suggest ordering a bag of their potato chips and having their iced tea. Both are splendid and remind you that you are eating in one of the best places in the whole world to eat: Reading Terminal Market. 
This place (especially Hatville Deli) has not been invaded by soulless over processed corporate food. Hatville Farms is my favorite merchant in the wonderful Reading Terminal. That's saying something.

Best sandwich in the city? Forget the usual suspects, and instead head to the Reading Terminal Market (RTM) Wednesday thru Saturday.  Hatville slices your lunchmeat fresh and to order. You've never had smoked turkey quite like this before. My favorite sandwich is the smoked turkey special on rye which includes cole slaw and Russian dressing on top of the turkey on fresh rye bread. I can hardly resist the freshly made potato chips or the sweet tea. I've never actually deviate from this menu, but I'm positive the other fresh lunchmeats are just as tasty. For some reason, I can almost always score a seat at the counter. I think this place might just be RTM's best kept secret.

Lots of piggy deliciousness to be had here!  This deli stand at Reading Terminal Market has the best deli meats I've had in Philly.  The chipped country ham is where it's at - don't scrimp, load up on it.  They take credit cards too (unlike some of the other Amish/Mennonite stands here) if you have at least $10 worth of charges (not a problem - get 2 lbs of the aforementioned country ham).  I used to load up on the ham when I went to college in Philly some 6-7 years ago... get the Amish butter and some rolls from the Amish bakery in the back and you've got yourself an awesome meal.
