Pita Pit

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 

Located in a busy shopping center off of 65th Expressway, Pita Pit serves up a large variety of pita bread options to the masses. As you enter the restaurant, you proceed to the register where you place your order and pay. The various pita options are listed on the wall behind the counter. After careful review of the menu, I decided on the Club with a wheat pita. The meat is cooked on a flat top after you order so it arrives fresh. You will actually need to wait until you are called up when the meat is almost ready to customize your pita. When I was called up, I decided to add provolone cheese, romaine lettuce, carrots, and corn. After all my additions were put in the pita, I still had to wait for the meat to finish up. Once the meat was ready, it was placed in my pita pocket and rolled up. The whole ordering and preparation process took around 20 minutes, which was a bit lengthy. When I finally got back to work, I was able to try out the pita. The pita itself tasted healthy, but the meat was very salty. The garlic sauce didn’t help as it added additional saltiness. The vegetables added a clean flavor to the salty meat, but the carrots were a bit hard.

Overall, Pita Pit was a disappointment with the slow prep time and overly salty flavor. Coming in close to $10 for a pita does not help either. Given a choice, I would feel better eating at Subway instead of Pita Pit. If you want to try something different with lots of menu choices, then Pita Pit may be OK for you, but I do not like the price or quality of what I received.
