Pita Pit

Pita Pit
524 State Street (corner of State and High)
588-7482

The first time I went to Pita Pit, right after it opened, the thing that stuck in my mind was how oppressively hot the upstairs dining loft was. It seemed like it was 90 degrees up there. All the heat from the high-ceilinged restaurant flowed up there. I ate my pita quickly and left, not being able to tolerate more than five minutes of it. When I returned last week, it was the opposite problem: It was freezing! I again ate upstairs in the loft, and by the time I was done, my fingers were bitterly cold. They’ve obviously got a problem with the heating system, which is too bad, because it is more memorable than the food.

The food is pretty good, fast, reasonably priced, and a decent variety. I like the chicken pitas with tzatziki sauce and feta cheese. They also have breakfast pitas and smoothies. The sandwiches are large and nicely self contained in the pita for easy carrying and eating. They’re not the best sandwiches on the planet, but they’re a good addition to the downtown lunch options and they seem to get a good crowd during the lunch hour.

A favorite late night snack in Corvallis. A bit expensive though.

Remind me to bring a thermometer next time I eat there.

haha.. it would be interesting to find out how cold it really is in there. my boyfriend and i got our last pita pit sandwiches to go because i couldnt stand how chilly i felt.

i wonder if it's really a problem with their heating system or if the guys working (who have a hard time it seems thinking of anyone but themselves.. or is it just me?) just get too warm and like to keep it cooler. that would be lame.. i hope not.

whatever you do dont use a credit card or debit card there. I have on a few occasions and now twice have been overbilled. The staff seems to like to throw a tip onto your card and just assumes you wont notice.

i like the pitas and i like that they have nutritional information but the workers are a little bit rude sometimes and man is it loud!

workers are nice and friendly! didn't know I didn't have to pay for hummus if I didn't get cheese though, so overbilled a lot. but the workers memorized my order, which is awesome! love it!
