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 get $10 worth of stuffed pita pockets and drinks at The Pita Pit, located on East Fowler Avenue.
The Pita Pit's menu provides sustenance in the form of decadently stuffed pockets of joy, with fillings spanning a spectrum of vegetarian and carnivorous eats. Jump-start your afternoon with a traditional gyro ($5.95), or unhinge your jaw and try the Dagwood with turkey, ham, and roast beef ($6.25) or the Chicken Crave with chicken and ham ($6.25). Vegetarians can also find delicious items on the menu, such as the falafel ($5.75) or hummus ($5.50) 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, bacon, tzatziki, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, and wishes.
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. 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, which dining companions can wash down with fruit smoothies.
