The Best Places To Eat In Reading Terminal Market

Reading Terminal Market is one of Philadelphia’s many treasures. This historic market has been offering a variety of delicious foods for generations and has always been a popular breakfast and lunch spot both for locals and tourists. Some of the favorite places in the market among our staff of Philadelphia personal injury lawyers include:

Molly Malloy’s

Molly Malloy’s is a gastropub-style restaurant inside of Reading Terminal but offers a more relaxed atmosphere than some of the busier merchants in the middle of the market. This place is a popular spot for Eagles fans on Sundays during football season. When we’re at Reading Terminal Market for lunch and craving some premium bar food along with a couple of craft beers, we love stopping by Molly Malloy’s.

Some of our favorite dishes here include:

  • Short Rib Empanadas
  • Quinoa Salad
  • Philly Cheesesteak
  • Not-Your-Mama’s Grilled Cheese
  • Pulled Pork Sandwich

The Grill Smuckers

Philly’s sandwich scene offers many more options than the classic cheesesteak, and the Grill Smuckers offers some of the best sandwiches in the city. This nondescript, unassuming sandwich shop in the Reading Terminal Market offers a variety of specialty creations at ridiculously affordable prices. We love stopping in here for a quick sandwich on our lunch breaks or breakfast before work. Some of our favorite sandwiches at the Grill Smuckers include:

  • Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
  • Scrapple, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
  • Pot Roast Beef Sandwich
  • Italian Sausage Sandwich
  • Chicken Cutlet Sandwich

The Grill also doubles as a meat market, so you can pick up your own smoked ham, kielbasa, bacon, beef jerky, and much more for home cooking.

Beck’s Cajun Cafe

Beck’s Cajun Cafe is the project of renowned Philadelphia chef and restaurateur Bill Beck, who says Cajun food is his favorite cuisine. You can find all of your Cajun favorites right here in Philadelphia, and the quality is just as good as what you’d find in New Orleans. This is one of our favorite places to stop in the market for a warm, hearty meal on a cold winter day.

Some of our favorite dishes from Beck’s Cajun Cafe include:

  • Fried Oysters
  • Blackened Catfish
  • Alligator Sausage Po Boy
  • Jambalaya
  • Chicken & Andouille Gumbo With White Rice
  • Creole Chicken Corn Chowder
  • Blackened Chicken Alfredo
  • Shrimp & Crawfish Pasta Salad

Fox & Son Fancy Corndogs

Fox & Son offers a variety of gourmet corndogs and other high-quality versions of popular carnival and fair foods. We love stopping here for a quick snack, and it’s always a favorite choice for the kids. Some of our favorite items at Fox & Son Fancy Corndogs include:

  • Sweet Potato, Battered Chorizo, Cilantro, Sour Cream Corn Dog
