Pita Pit Isn't

A pit, that is.

The local Pita Pit opened last Friday, and I've eaten there twice already (kinda). The first time, someone where I work picked up our order, so I didn't actually eat there there. I had a Chicken Souvlaki pita with romaine lettuce, tomatoes and their Secret Sauce (spicy vinaigrette). The chicken was tender, juicy and well seasoned, the lettuce was crisp, and they don't skimp on quantity. It was very tasty.

They open up the pita pocket (a large one) and split the top half into two flaps. Then they stuff the bottom half with your order, tuck in one flap and fold the other flap over, so it's like a burrito with pita bread instead of tortilla.

Tonight Connie and I ate inside. The service was quick, friendly and without error. I had a Gyro with spinach, tomato, cheddar cheese, some pepperoncini and spicy vinaigrette. It was so good, I didn't want to let Connie have a bite. But I did. (She had to steal the second bite.)

Connie had a ham and cheese pita with hashbrowns, mushrooms and cheddar cheese. I had a bite of that, and it was wonderful. They serve breakfast all day. Connie loved it too, and said she saw at least four other sandwiches on the menu she wanted to try, plus their smoothies. Her only disappointment was that they were out of wheat pita. (Didn't bother me a bit.)

Looks like I'm going to be eating at the Pit quite a bit.

Pita Pit is around the corner from Blue Fish Bistro, facing Mirror Pond:

Oh... and they carry Coca-Cola. Yay!

Oops. Sorry. Pita Pit is in downtown Bend, on the backside of the Brooks building facing Mirror Pond. I added the address to the post. They're so new they aren't listed on the company web site yet.

Good to know! So many places are opening (and closing) it's hard to keep up.

It sure is. I like it when the places I like eating stick around.

We're going to be visiting our daugbhter soon, and on our list of things to do is to eat at Olive Garden. We miss that place. (sh... Don't tell. :) )

The Aloha one looks really good. :) I was just looking at their easy-order menu. Loads of stuff to choose from.
