Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide falafel balls.

The local branch of a national establishment, Pita Pit on East Carson charms patrons’ palates with a menu of 32 stuffed pitas built for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Diners can lead mandibles through morning exercises with the Meat the Day pita, a protein-heavy blend of scrambled eggs, bacon, black-forest ham, cheddar cheese, and grilled veggies. Or, they can wake up early to catch the Morning Glory pita’s colorful combination of eggs, avocado, tomato, green peppers, onions, and hash browns before it melts closed under the afternoon sun.
Lunch and dinner menus lead eaters down divergent paths on the culinary map, veering tongue buds toward classic Mediterranean tastes, such as chicken souvlaki and falafel-packed pitas, as well as innovative combinations, such as the three-meat dagwood, loaded with turkey, black-forest ham, and juicy prime rib. A chopped spicy-black-bean patty offers a tasteful twist on a typical veggie burger, and a pita packed with creamy feta provides a tasteful twist to a typical grilled cheese or pants pocket filled with melted blue-cheese crumbles.
In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese-style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies, all grilled to order. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches.
