The Pita Pit serves up healthy, fresh pita pockets filled with veggies, hot-off-the-grill meats and tasty sauce and cheeses.
Have been here many times, but toke a 2 year hiatus until last night.
I really enjoy thier pitas. I always get a double chicken pita which is really good. Not outstanding or anything, but enjoy it very much, and believe that it has good taste.
Maybe I gave a high rating for service, but I like how I can have a conversation with the employees while they are making my pita, and they always abide with any special requests that I have. They are terrific.
I think I get my money's worth here for what it is. Sure it can be a little pricy, but so is Subway and Quizno's
Ambiance could have been better had they cleaned thier dirty tables. Ither than that I think it can be an ok hang out to eat your pita and sit and chat for about 10 minutes.
I'll be back again.
Pita Pit UBC is a great place to go. It offers a menu that caters to the health conscious and someone wanting to treat themselves. Prices are reasonable and you always get a huge pita for your dollar.
The thing to understand - in my experience - about Pita Pit UBC is that they seem atrociously understaffed. One will usually only see one to two people working at once. They will usually take about four to five orders at a time, stop, make those orders, and then rinse and repeat. It is a solid system and I can understand why they have it in place because if not, they would get swamped in their orders. If you see a line, chances are there will be a wait. It's just the way it is.
With that aside, my visits to Pita Pit have always been pleasant. The staff are humorous and friendly, often going out of their way to make your food the way you like it. Definitely a little gem to visit if you're looking for something tasty (and often health conscious) to fill you up. If you can't wait, there's a McDonalds down the street.
Conveniently located on the UBC campus, the Pita Pit caters to students like myself with its decent price and giant servings. The servers are friendly enough and willing to put extra toppings, if you ask nicely. I always get the Chicken, with all the vegetables and pineapples and I've never been disappointed! I always end up with a overflowing giant wrap which never takes more than around 5 minutes to be whipped up. The atmosphere isn't great, but everyone gets take out anyways. Nutritional info is also provided.
Overall, I would TOTALLY recommend this to everyone, starving student or not.
ate this at a debate tournament several years ago, so i wouldn't know baout service or ambiance. what i do know is that the pita pit, especially at UBC (i dont know about other ploaces) is gross. the beef was undercooked and the vegetables were limp. won't be going there anymore. for their sake i will say their service and ambiance might have been fine, even great. but the food...never again.
The Pita Pit is good for students in the sense that it not only tastes good, but it is also cheap, served quickly, and practically located on campus.
I mean, one pita bread with its stuffing is also enough to fill you up. It is also a healthier alternative to other fast food restaurants around such as McDonald’s (which is practically next door to it), A&W, and Triple O’s.
My only complaint about the Pita Pit would be about the service. It really needs to improve. When I went, the guy who was attending did not seem too happy to answer my questions. He kept chatting with his friends when he was supposed to be working.
When my friend and I went inside to the Pita Pitt, there was no one on till to take our orders. There were two people making the pitas, one actually doing his job and the other man just talking to the guy making the pitas. We stood in line and waited for the guy that took the till to come because the slacker said he would in a "little while". he did not come for 15 minutes. after ordering, we had to wait another 20 minutes for our pita. My pita consisted of raw chicken, can you believe I waited 35 minutes for a raw chicken pita? No quality control in the food they serve and the people who serve you the food look like cavemen.
A note to hungry UBC students, don't come, it's as simple as that.
