Locals head to this family-friendly restaurant for falafel, chicken shawarma sandwiches and baklava. – The Scene
It's often hard to find a table at this bustling spot on busy Dempster, but brave the lines and your meal will be served in just a few minutes. The prices here are stunningly reasonable, with nothing on the menu even coming close to $10, with all sandwiches (falafel to shish-kabob att below the $4 mark). Plus, it's an order-at-the-counter joint, you'll save a few more bucks since there's no need to leave a big tip.
While you're wondering what to order, you'll gaze at the two huge rotating shawarma grills--one beef and one chicken. Order either and you won't regret it when you're served a heaping mound of freshly grilled and sliced meat, on top of a mound of basmati rice and a simple green salad. Falafel is also popular and fried to perfection, crispy on the outside, but moist and flecked with plenty of parsley in the middle.
Great Food! – Best pitas ever! Not too expensive, but still quality food! Amazing hummus and Chicken Shawarma!
It's OK, but if you want really excellent food drive east a couple blocks to BASHA – Pita Inn is OK. It did spark my love for Middle Eastern cuisine, however, because of the long, long, long lines I found a cute little place down the street, BASHA. Basha is a family-owned and operated place and all the food is made-to-order, while you wait. Pita Inn's assembly line, mass produced format turned me off. To me, part of the experience when experimenting with other foods is to see how its done. Basha has a big, open kitchen and you can see exactly what's happening, talk to the cooks and maybe get a recipe or two. Pita Inn's stacks of chicken and mounds of falafel just don't do it for me anymore. I've brought many people to Basha who have sworn by Pita Inn and they've fallen HARD. You really can't beat the prices at Pita Inn, but I'd rather pay a little more for the better quality and atmosphere at Basha.
exceptional food, low price, fast service – This is by far my favorite place for middle eastern food.
I love this place! – This place is great! Their food is delicious! Ilove to eat their Chicken Sandwiches. The chicken has great flavor. Just recently, I have tried their Falafel Sandwich and it tasted really good. My family and I really enjoy their food. The place is always crowed especailly during lunch time because of their lunch special (three types of meat served w/rice and pita) which is really inexpensive!
Yum! – There is little more that I can say than the title. Pita Inn is probably the best inexpensive Middle-Eastern cuisine in the Chicago area. For under 20 bucks you can easily feed a family of four and probably have some leftovers to boot ( at least of the salads: hommos, tabuleh, babaganoujh, etc). They do not skimp on the pita served with the salads either, which is also exceptional as many of the alternatives to Pita Inn only include a few pieces of bread and make you pay for any additional.
Best Homous – Pita Inn not only has great food, but it's pretty healthy as well. My children love it. The fact that it is not expensive is certainly a draw as well. It is always crowded so I suggest calling ahead to place your order.
superb! – The Pita Inn, always good, always packed! This place serves up some of the best middle eastern food, served semi fast food style - Order at one counter, pick up at another, but this isn't fast food quality. Everything is prepared fresh, and spiced just right. And the prices won't kill your walles at all. Decor is bright and and your ears are always trated to middle eastern music. Since this is a rather small restauant, I recomend pick up durring peak dinner hours. And for those inspiring to cook with a mid east flair, there is a shop across the way that will allow you to take hope essential spices to create you own mid east masterpiece
