This place has gotten a lot better with the new owner/management. The gyro is excellent with grilled mushrooms and onions! We have been going here for about 5 years and have never been disappointed. One time i encountered rude college student employees years ago but...More

We enjoyed chicken souvlaki and a gyro. There were no small pitas available, so the server tore part of the large ones off and threw it away: strange. The cooking smell from the grill was strong, so we took the food next door to Chipotle...More

Uses Rover Town to spam UF students' email accounts. This is not a way to attract business. I have been to Pita Pit in the past, food is ok.

High quality, fresh. Like Subway but with real meat & cheese, cooked to your liking. Chicken breast starts out as a raw chicken breast cooked to order...yumm!

Just got a gyro there and have not tried anything else but they seem to use fresh ingredients so there may be some other good things to try there. I would go back to try more.

we had the chicken gyro and the regular gyro. Sandwiches were overstuffed and fantastic. Grilled mushroom, onion, and peppers can be added to any sandwich, free of charge. You also get to pick what salad items you prefer on your sandwich, from feta cheese, olives,...More
