Latest Review


I am not planning on saying something about absolutely every fast food joint I ever go to. I only want to tell of some fab finds, and possibly help you be more aware of some places to save you a little pain. That way it is up to you if you decide to brave them or not.

For lunch today, I went to "The Pita Pit" in Provo. It is a quaint little place on the corner of Bulldog Blvd. and University Ave. next to Panda Express. It is basically a build your own sandwich type of establishment, only instead of a bun, you have your very own pita bread pocket. They have a lot of different options to choose from. Anything from a ham and cheese pita, to a veggie pita, to a gyro pita. You get your choice of hot or cold meats, veggies, etc. and then they stuff them full of all sorts of your favorite toppings, or sauces.

PROS: Lots of variety, and you can make it just the way you like it. Very fresh taste, and a very nice alternative to all of the many similar sandwich joints around the area.

CONS: Parking Sucks. There are only a handful of spots available between the two restaurants who share essentially one building. They are very slow. The don't have a very good "assembly line" in fact there isn't one at all. The girls do not wear their hair back at all, nor do they have hats of hair-nets. I am very tempted to call the health department and tattle! If you would like to try this place, I recommend calling in your order, and in some cases (at least they used to) for a small fee of a dollar or two, they will deliver it to you! If you want to brave it without using these other two methods, be prepared for about a 20 min wait if there is more than two people in front of you!

Have you ever tried Mama Chu's at the mouth of Provo Canyon on 8th North in Orem? Very yummy, authentic food, and lunch specials are between $4.50 and $5.50 depending on the day.

btw - You need to check out this article including Quiet-them Comebacks to relatives' comments about being single. You, Nem, and Kristen all posted about these - some of them are pretty funny.

I love pita pit, but I have to agree with your cons. Parking stinks big time...I still have a bad taste about that place because of the time that some jerk almost ran over my 8 month pregnant sister-in-law while fighting for a parking space. I do also remember them being slow. But, very yummy if you can get past those cons. :)

Never been there. With all the cons, maybe I'll avoid it.
