    Pitas are made to order and there is a large selection of pitas. May take a few minutes to wait, but the pitas are made fresh so it is worth it. Staff were friendly and made order accurately. This place is a nice alternative in Ottumwa to the normal fast food options like McDonald’s or sandwich shops like Subway.

    Great lunch when you're on the go. The Greek Suvlaki is great with all the fixins' just like the menu. Lots of food in the large pita. Very good! It's connected to a glass station so no atmosphere🤭

    At the end of the day it's still food from the gas station. Would you take a date out to eat at the gas station? Didn't think so. Treat yourself better than that.

    It's alright. I wouldn't go out of my way to get here. The wrap I had was thin and somehow flavorless. Cashier is friendly, people making the food are not friendly and seem inconvenienced by pur presence.

    I found this place by accident today. I was working in town and stopped in at the gas station for what I thought would be a regular not-so-great gas station lunch. Then I saw the pita pit sign and wandered over. My mind was blown by the explosion of deliciousness that was presented in front of me. I had the steak fajita pita. Can't wait to try more. Soooooo good. Service was awesome and the two ladies were also great at helping this newbie figure out what to order. Price was super affordable too. A billion star experience.

    Had a trainee, so was a bit slow, but real friendly place....will go there again..

  • 2/5 Ibrahim F. 7 years ago on Google
    Quite lacking in customer service. I had never been here before and wasn't sure how things worked. She was so concerned with talking to her unpaying friends, that my questions went unanswered, her looks were condescending....and in the end my food was cold. The ONLY reason I didn't give it a one star was because I could tell the flavor would have been spot on had the food been cooked enough.

    I had the Gyro on wheat and it was filling and taste. Regular size my husband got the Sriracha chicken and loved it.

    It's Pita Pit! This place is clean and the staff are friendly. The food is good and pretty cheap. The size of the regular pitas are perfect for a full meal. The options and combinations are enough to make anyone happy even the picky eaters on my family.

    A few days ago, I went in later in the evening for a pita. The woman that helped us was very kind and the pita was so good I was sad when it was gone. Legitimately was in a hurry, but found myself chewing slower without choice it was that dang good. But today, the older lady seemed annoyed we were even there and the food was so bad I didn't even eat half. Dont order while shes there, later in the evening is when you'll get the best pitas.

    It's good but eat to much can get old fast.

    Always fresh and delicious. Very quick service and professional staff.

  • 5/5 Tailor B. 2 years ago on Google
    Surprisingly fresh, clean and vibrantly colored ingredients for being in a gas station. Great taste and amount of food for the low price and calories. Billy makes a great pita and is always to chat with.

    What a pleasant suprise for a vegetarian option of falafel available in two sizes at a gas station! The small was plenty for this traveler passing thru.

👍👍 The avocado toast was deliciousness to the second power! A wheat toast with a large fresh tomato slice, huge amounts of creamy avocado, feta cheese, and two sunny side eggs on the side, that I incorporated into my toast. You need to try it!
