The longest line at Reading Terminal Market always seems to be at Carmen’s for their cheesesteak. What you really need at Carmen’s, though, is their Italian hoagie. The meats are piled high on fluffy white bread and covered in oil, vinegar, and a mix of salt and pepper. And it’s huge, so if you can’t finish it, you can always save the other half for dinner or for when you want a snack at 3pm.
