YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, so good! I begged the owner for the recipe and secret to making the falafel taste so good but he wouldn't divulge... although he gave me one tip; make your 'batter' not too wet and not to dry. Wish this place was in my town, they have great food!

I was craving Falafel after visiting Israel and this place hit the spot! Introduced these hearty sized falafel and hummus to my teenage nephews and they loved it! There are seats outside the walk up window food shack and parking area is good. The workers are very friendly, fun and courteous.

I don't visit the Pita Place too often because I like to change my food options up, especially in the summer when the Farmers Market and other food trucks are open. Pita Place is also located at the UAF Woodcenter, so if you need to get your Falafel fix stop by the Woodcenter during the winter months. Pita place is... More

If you love Mediterranean food, you will love the Pita Place. Great hummus and falafel. Great prices. Typical Fairbanks low-key, road-side fare… Can't wait for summer!

Pita Place is the real deal! Best Falafel in town, or Alaska for that matter! Very friendly and professional, a bit pricy, but extremely tasty! We will be back again for sure : )

By BF and I look forward to every Summer when this place reopens. We avoid opening week because the lines are always long, but after that we stop once if not twice a week. The owner is present and preparing meals, the wait staff is fast and friendly. Fresh flavors everytime! The half order is plenty for me! Sitting outside... More

I know I'm going to sound dumb but I thought I orded a Falafel with meat in it. To my surprise, there was not an ounce of meat in it! That's really the only reason I was disappointed. Their falafels are tasty and great for vegetarians and anyone else. You will be waiting in line outside and there are a... More

Hours are a bit weird for this place, but if you have the opportunity you must go. I am from DC and have had good pita and falafel in several different cities around the world. This was very high on the list. The sauces are delicious and the texture is just great. Do not miss out on this pita.

It took months and months for me to convince my hubby to try falafel and now he wants to eat there more often than me! It's delicious, everything is extremely fresh and service is usually quick. It's great that they are at UAF during the school year now.
