The pita pit is my new favorite stop for quick, healthy, and affordable lunch. I order the whole wheat pita topped with garlic hummus, sprouts, tomato, avocado, and provolone. It's the perfect blend of flavors and textures. The pita is wrapped up for to go orders, much the same way a sub sandwich is, making it a truly easy meal to eat on-the-go. The service was quick; the employees friendly; and the atmosphere was clean and enjoyable to be in. I highly recommend it!
I come here quite regularly when I'm in the mood for sandwiches. My favs are the meatball and turkey bre*st. I have a soft spot for the Oreo shake, too. Like others have mentioned, there is an actual parking lot, which is nice. The staff has always been friendly to me. The price is affordable (it's a sandwich chain, not fine dining). It gets 4 stars because it's close to home, which is convenient.
