    Ricks is gone after a long and ugly "divorce" with the Market.

      Next time go to DiNics in Reading Terminal for the roast pork sandwich and/or Salumeria for an Italian hoagie

        Is he opening somewhere else???? I went to DiNics...it was OK but not as good as Tony Lukes. Where else near the market is there a really good cheesesteak that I could walk to or else one outside the area but not Genos or Pats, they are not my favorites. Had one at Campos that was pretty good and am not a fan of Jims. Johns is always closed when I can get there.

          Try Sonny's next door to Campo's at 216 Market St. IMO their sandwich is much better than Campo's.
