About this business

From Our Editors

Every pitted pita at Pita Pit comes with your choice of flavorful vegetables and toppings, and you can even build your own—although you'd best leave the actual construction to Pita Pit's pita pit crew, who can skin, field-dress, chop, and fold your pita in under 15 seconds. Exercise your mastication muscles on any of the Lebanese-style pita-ria's meatiest contenders: the Dagwood, with turkey, ham, and roast beef ($6.65 for regular, $5.40 for small); the chicken souvlaki with lemon-garlic chicken ($6.15 for regular, $4.90 for small); or the Philly with grilled onions and mushrooms ($6.50 for regular, $5.25 for small). Vigorously vegetarian options abound as well, including the hummus with feta cheese ($5.50 for regular, $4.25 for small) and the Garden, which packs a farm's worth of tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, and anything else that grows roots and is not human hair into its warm, bready folds ($4.95 for regular, $3.70 for small). There's even a breakfast menu (the Morning Glory contains scrambled eggs, avocado, grilled peppers and onions, and sauteed tomatoes, $5.50) and a healthy menu, which somehow finds a way to cut even more calories and fat from the already healthy regular menu, particularly if you ordered a build-your-own triple-cheese and bacon pita deep-fried in chocolate.

Austin Restaurant Guide

If it can be tossed on a grill and slathered in barbecue sauce, it probably can be found at one of the many Austin restaurants that keep things classically Texas. But even though the city may have made its culinary name with sweet, smoky briskets and ribs, new and not-so-new cooking styles have made Austin a foodie destination.

Thanks to the popularity of “Tex-Mex” cuisine, Matt’s El Rancho on South Lamar has managed to become an Austin institution for more than 60 years. Since that time, Tex-Mex dining in Austin has gone uptown with Nuevo Mexican restaurants such as Manuel’s, an upscale Mexican eatery located in downtown Austin, and Garrido’s, a Warehouse District spot that marries traditional Mexican cooking with modern techniques. Foodies who consider eating an adventure are flocking to newcomers on the Austin dining scene including The Afin Modern Japanese Tapas Bar on North Lamar Boulevard, which turns out stunning sushi creations, and Foreign & Domestic, on East 53rd Street, where they utilizes local ingredients to reinvent classic American dishes at this updated take on the diner. Newcomers Asia Café (Sichuan), Indian Spicy Kitchen (Indian) and Mi Kefcito (Cuban) are also worth checking out.

Still, barbecue reigns supreme among Austin food worshippers and one of the newest places is Franklin Barbecue on East 11th Street, recently named the best barbecue restaurant in the country by Bon Appetit magazine. Lines form early here (about 10 a.m.) and Franklin only serves lunch, so plan accordingly. Other places where the barbecue is popular include Live Oak Barbecue on East 2nd Avenue and longtime Austin favorites Stubbs, (located on Red River Street), Sam’s BBQ (on East 12th Street), and Ironworks BBQ (downtown Austin). From traditional Texas chow to unique Southwestern twists on international dishes, Austin is now one of the top favorites for unique taste adventures.
