We were visiting our son at U of I and he took us to this place for lunch. It offers a good variety of choices, and they stuff your pitas to the brim! The men working there were very nice, as well! It was a bit pricey, which is why the rating of four and not five, but I would... More

We were out running errands and looking for a quick lunch when we ran across this place. It didn't disappoint. It's set up like a Subway--you order at one end and you emerge at the other with your food. The chicken caesar pita was tasty and fresh and a lot healthier than most fast food alternatives.

My son plays football for Iowa and everytime we visit we go to the Pita Pit. Great place to go for lunch. Love it!
