Best Middle Eastern Food on the North Shore

Pita Inn is by far the best short-order middle eastern food in the area. The weekday Business Special is an a great sample of their schwarma, kabobs, and falafel--and a great deal. They are currently building a bigger restaurant on Dempster not far west from the original. I'm hoping the parking... read more

This place is very busy inside and with people waiting on to-go orders. I took my food to-go and ordered a Falafel sandwich. It was soo good I came back for more. The 2nd run included the combination plate with all the delicious meats served with rice and salad. I also got baba ganoush and it was incredible. The tahini... More

Yum yum. I want to order there right now. Unfortunately I'm 100s of miles away & nothing like it around. As soon as I get back to town, I'm hoping right over.

Parking is tight and the restaurant needs more seating, but that should change when they open their new restaurant about a miles west of where they are currently. Looks like it will be much bigger with better parking. I say that they have excellent quality and the lunch special is one of the best values. It gets very busy at... More

A good way to sample a variety of mid-eastern food. Fast food with a twist. Generally crowded and hectic. Lunch, go before noon. Building new facility west on Dempster, just before Skokie Blvd. Looks like it will be larger with a bigger parking lot. Should help.

This is one of the busiest and most popular places in Skokie. They have their own bakery next door and make their breads fresh. We've catereed parties through them and have been very satisfied with the quality. It can be a mad house so ordering ahead will save you some hassle as it's always crowded. I've heard they bought out... More

This restaurant has been here for decades and is very popular with all sorts of people. The food has always been very good and consistent. The service is quick. Falafel, Hummus, Shawrama, Jerusalem Salad are very good. Whether you get the sandwich version or the entrée version of the shawrama and or the Shish Kabob entrée, you won't be disappointed....

We've been visiting this restaurant for years, and it only gets better. Fast food, but with a twist: it's unique, delicious, and has become a Skokie tradition. Every dish on the menu is worth trying...over and over! Often hard to park, but use the Dunkin' Donuts lot next door, they'll never know the difference.

My family lives in Skokie, not far from Pita Inn. We could not survive without having this restaurant close by! We order from here about twice a month, and everything about them is perfect. The staff are wonderful, the service is quick, and the food is to DIE for! We love the beef shawarma and the chicken shawarma--sandwiches and entrees... More
