A cute little place with great tasting Middle Eastern food

Pita Express is only open for breakfast and lunch, and you might want to plan to go for lunch either a bit early or late because they draw a loyal crowd. Nothing fancy, but the food is delicious and the couple who own the place see to it that everything is to your liking. For a quick, tasty and... read more

Visiting my sister for the Thanksgiving week, this was my first time at Pita Express. At owner Lina's suggestion, I had the delicious Egg Zaatar. Our group of 5 enjoyed the warm interaction with Lina - a fascinating woman - and her tips and stories of Middle Eastern culture. Truly a treat and I look forward to going again (and... More

I had a late lunch here, and just wanted something quick. I chose the gyro, and was glad I did. The lamb was tender and well cooked. The tzatziki sauce was tangy. The lettuce and tomato were fresh and crispy. While the atmosphere is very plain and casual, it was apparent that many of the other diners were regulars, as... More

Excellent food prepared when you order. This is a very casual cafe-type spot, breakfast and lunch only, very clean. Wonderful food at a very reasonable price. Owners are nice and very accommodating. They offered, without me asking, to leave off or add ingredients but I did not make any changes. I've only been there for breakfast. Both times I had... More

Felt the food and service was only average, truly don't see what everyone is bragging about. If this is great middle-east cuisine, I would hate to see what only good cuisine is??

Pita Express is a truly fabulous restaurant! The food is always beyond delicious, and Lina and her husband are some of the nicest people you’ll ever encounter. The food is always fresh and delicious, with regular menu staples and a few daily/weekly specials that change. My favorites are the Mediterranean Platter for lunch or dinner and the Spanish Omelet for... More

I learned to love middle-east cuisine both in New York and in Israel. It was a pleasant surprise to have a restaurant serving this food in authentic and well-prepared versions right here in Hendersonville. Lina and Mohammed have created a delightful ambience in a store-front setting. Every time I have been there for lunch I have had to wait in... More

L-O-V-E Pita Express!! I have been a regular for years and am still so happy to have a place to eat a healthy, vegetarian meal. They have chicken, lamb, and beef, but for those of us who do not eat much meat, they also serve several vegetarian options, namely the Vegetarian Plate. The lemon and parsley rich tabouli is my...
