If there's one thing to get here, it's definitely the civap, a Bosnian meatball-type sandwich made with house baked bread and served with this sweet condiment. This fast-casual place also let's you BYOB.

I fell in love with Eastern European Bosnian food here, Try the fried cheese, meza platter & cevap. Don't forget it is BYOB.

So I have been seeing Cafe Pita on my favorite tv show Diners Drive-ins and Dives on Food Network. I am such a big foodie and eat out quite often. I have been dying to try their food and finally did yesterday and i was quite disappointed. When I first came in I was not sure if the restaurant was already closed or not. They need to improve on their greeting of guests. When I sat down i looked around and it seemed dark and depressing. The two guys that sat in front of the door at a table seemed like they could be the owners and weren't really friendly or smiling when i got in. I could hear them talking in their language and the way they were talking seemed angry or not happy which makes me feel uncomfortable. I did not feel any positive vibes at all. I ordered some hummos and pita which the hummos was pretty tasty but i could not believe that they brought out to me COLD PITA. I had no idea where my waiter was and waited a while for him to come around...I asked the other waitress if they normally serve their pita cold and her response is that some people like cold pita or warm pita. OMG i could not imagine anyone wanting cold bread/pita with their food. But she fixed the problem right away and brought out some warm pita bread. My plate finally came Pljeskavice which is ground beef patties mixed with flavorful spices served with lepinja bread, fresh onions and ajvar.(stuffed with mozz. cheese, mushrooms and crushed peppers) The portion was big and hot. It was tasty but nothing amazing. I ate about 20% of the sandwich and was over eating it. I wanted to get some to go boxes for my food but of course the waiter is never around. I had to ask for some from the waitress that was working on her other tables. Overall i would have to say that the food was OKAY but not worth the drive there. The service was HORRIBLE though. Maybe it was just my waiter in particular but I would not be recommending any friends or family to come here nor do i plan on coming back. I was quite disappointed with the overall experience I got.

good food; sevice stinks – The title says it all: the food was good. We asked for a meal that they said was out, then some people sat down behind us and ordered the EXACT same thing. Of course he got it, but we didn't... and no they did not just come in with a lot of fresh ingredients. worste treated I ever have been in a restraunt. food is okay. they add the tip on the reciept already, there is no choice....

Great! – Food: AMAZING but not all the items on the menu are available. I suggest you call to find out if they even have bread.

Service: level is seasonal. You will see what I mean. You would go from "Amazing" to "Oh God, not that server again"

Really good food – I can tell you the food is authentic and very good according to how it SHOULD taste. I love the food, however their service isn't the best. Yes it's a hole in the wall place, but it's very reasonably priced so I can't complain.

There's this one waitress... aghhh... when I see her I cross my fingers and hope that she doesn't approach our table first. Sucks at her job, poor thing.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Superlative cevapcici is only the beginning at this modest mom and pop on the west side. What is cevapcici? Why, it’s the Bosnian national dish, a hamburger made to look like a hot dog and served with fluffy lepinja bread and ajvar. Beyond that, the menu offers earthy bean soup, a generous mezza plate of cured meats and pickled vegetables, lamb shank and interestingly enough, some popular pizza--all hearty fare that tastes as if mother made it (assuming mother is from Bosnia). Despite the slightly shabby appearance of the place, cornered in a typical strip mall, Café Pita+ is a food lover’s paradise—the offerings never fail to pique curiosity and are very well unique to this one restaurant in all of Houston.

Cevap Me! – This is the only Bosnian restaurant in the city of Houston and it's definitely very good. Besides the fact that Guy has visited this place, it's hands down as authentic as you can find around. Don't expect an extravagant dining ambiance. It's a hole in the wall, but if you know what to order, it can quickly become a place you go to repeatedly.

To start with, the restaurant has a BYOB policy. So if you want wine or beer with your food, be sure to bring it! They can accommodate wine glasses if you need them. I usually order the Beef Bourek, one of my favorite traditional dishes. The bourek is served hot with a side of cold Kajmak, a traditional spreadable cheese. My husband usually orders the cevap sandwich, which reminds him of home. It's served with kajmak, and a helping of Ajvar, which is a pickled tomato side dish, which with the Kajmak, marry perfectly together in taste.

On Saturdays, the restaurant actually roasts a whole lamb and serves it up in true Bosnian style. However, when the meat runs out, the dish is not served for the rest of the night. The place is usually packed during lunch and dinner, so make sure you either go earlier or later to be sure that you can find a table.

Who knew Bosnian food was good :) – We went in to Cafe Pita because it was my turn to pick a place and I saw it on the Food Netowrk and my husband wanted to just hit Subway :)

But when we were there, we were warmly greeted, and seated. It took a little bit of time to get our order in, but I ordered a spinach pocket (forgot the correct name), and my husband had the chicken shish ke bob.

My husband LOVED his dish and told me he was so happy I convinced him to go! I kinda liked my pocket...it was not what I thought it would be but it was ok. The hummus was good and the fresh bread. I had dessert, the crepe and it was also ok.

We will be going back, especially since my husband loves the chicken!

Really Good – I got the hummus and stuffed Pljeskavice and my friend got pirjan. Both were really good. Mine was best described as a Bosnian hamburger that I'd love to have again, and his lamb shank was very tender and tasty.

I got a Mediterranean pizza. I saw the fresh dough being stretched out in front of me. It was pretty good, the crust had a bit too much flour though.

Never knew I'd like Bosnian food! – lamb shank was delicious. And it was only $9 bucks.
