The Pita Spot is most definitely one of my favorite restaurants now. The inside was well-decorated, the waiters were extremely helpful when it came to allergies, and the food was absolutely delicious! I ordered the Hummus Special Pita, and my friend ordered the Lala Chicken Pita and we were both blown away. It's definitely a place that I would love... More

We had lunch at TPS this past Sunday. The food was really delicious and the service was attentive and friendly. The chicken lala wrap was delicious (especially the pickled cucumbers), as were the meat pies. The kids meals were homemade (including the handcut fries) and we all enjoyed this meal. We will definitely return.

The food is incredible! One of the best Middle Eastern Restaurants between New York and Boston. Take the train in from either city and enjoy! If traveling thru, STOP and eat as you will not forget it.

So much more than pita! i started with a medium-spicy peanut based soup before moving on to a shawarma wrap. Others in the party had salads, baked kibbeh, yogurt & olive oil, and of course baba ganoush (nice and smokey) and humous. Everything we ordered was made in-house and delectable.

A restaurant has to be something special when it can get you to drive 45 minutes each way just for their one-of-a-kind signature dish. La la chicken. Glorious. We love it as the pita -- flavorful, marinated chicken, rolled into an extremely thin pita with a fluffy (weird to use as a food description, but it really is), delicious garlic... More

We Try to make it hear a couple times a year, and even make plans to visit Mystic with the primary goal of dinner or lunch here. The fava beans, baba ganoush and la la chicken are particular wonderful.

What a wonderful spot for fresh, healthy Middle Eastern food. They have unusual as well as traditional foods and drinks. Try a Lebanese drink or a Turkish coffee. Begin with warm or cold appetizers. Everything was tasty and fresh. The waitstaff was attentive and helpful. Yummy!

A great little resistant! Staff is fun and customer service friendly. Prices are good and food is very authentic and delicious! We have eaten there several times and really enjoy each time!! Pita chips are made fresh daily! Chicken shawarma is my favorite! Prices are reasonable! The Turkish coffee is a must try!

This is not our first visit to The Pita Spot and certainly won't be our last. We visited on a Wednesday night in July. It was quite crowded, but then again it is Mystic in the summer. We started out with a plate of appetizers. Delicious is all i can say.The citrus salad was so fresh and the big orange... More
