In 1977, military scientists invented pita pockets as a means of preventing humans from devouring pants pockets. Curb your pants-eating proclivities with today's Groupon. For $5, you'll get $10 worth of stuffable pita pockets and drinks at Pita Pit, located in downtown Indianapolis.
Jump-start your morning with a breakfast pita, such as the Morning Glory ($5.89), comprised of avocado, eggs, tomatoes, home fries, grilled green peppers, onions, and your choice of cheese and zesty sauces. Don't feel ashamed if your morning happens to be what other people call the afternoon, since breakfast pitas are served all day.
If it's lunch or dinner that you prefer, you can stay traditional with a gyro ($6.29), or unhinge your jaw and try the Dagwood club ($6.99) with turkey, ham, and roast beef, or the Chicken Crave ($6.49) with chicken and ham. Vegetarians can also find delicious items on the menu, such as the falafel ($5.99) or hummus ($5.99) pitas. If your nonconformist stomach refuses to be satiated by any of the menu items, build your own pita and choose from a potpourri of stuffings, including pickles, mushrooms, jalapeños, pineapple, croutons, tzatziki, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing.
Wash your pockets down with a scrumptious smoothie. Play it simple with the Banana Very Berry, a blend of vanilla frozen yogurt, orange juice, bananas, and strawberries. All smoothies cost $3.79.
The Pita Pit is open until 9 p.m. during the week, midnight on Friday and Saturday, and 8 p.m. on Sunday, making it a perfect pit stop after an uninspired day at the office or a weekend of alligator farming on the Schuylkill.
- Diners who stop in for a bite to eat at the downtown location of Pita Pit can enjoy their meal knowing that the restaurant operates with an Earth-friendly mentality. That's because it recently became the first — and only — green certified restaurant in the entire city of Indianapolis. – Wendy Gould, Nuvo
- I love the dozens of options for fillings…Tons of veggies, sauces, cheese. We've tried a whole bunch of different ones so far and they are all tasty. – Nichole H., Yelp
