Can't get enough of their gyros. Homemade tzatziki sauce. Souvlaki! Right there in a little shop on 225 in Hendersonville. Their house made pastries are pistachio rich and buttery. The chef/wife of the cooking duo takes your order and calls you "honey" and "darling." Wears the costume of her native land. Excellent mid eastern food.

What a pleasant surprise to come across this small gem in Hendersonville while visiting the area. The food couldn't be better: fresh, tasty and healthy and was just as good, if not superior, to similar restaurants in the northeast. The gyros (chicken, lamb) we ordered were excellent and didn't disappoint. Sides of falafel and hummus were of high quality and... More

Pita Express is one of my staples for lunch. The food is excellent and the owners are personable and friendly. The menu is varied enough to sample different things and broaden your food horizons, but also has enough favorites to keep those less adventuresome souls satisfied as well. If you are a tea drinker, you owe it to yourself to... More

Friends and I celebrated my birthday here - the Friday menu was salmon with marinated mushroom and tomatoes, lentils and rice, and salad. As a special treat, Lina, an owner with her husband, created a "birthday cake" made from her bird nest dessert. There were candles, too! They also are open M-S for both breakfast and lunch; Friday is the... More

Had the gyro with steak fries. Everything was made fresh and was delicious. $9.95 for the combo with a drink.

I was not sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful lamb gyro and side salad that I chose for my lunch. The hot mint tea was really good (w/o sugar for me). This is a very small restaurant, clean and simple. Order at the counter and go sit down. I can't wait to go back to... More

Enjoy the Mediterranean fare here. The Pita Bread is wonderful and a must when you visit. We usually order one of the variety plates and are never disappointed.

One of our favorite Mediterranean restaurants. The owners Lina and Muhammad are friends and they have always exceeded our expectations with their fresh, healthy menu. Please try their falafel and humus and baba ganoush and gyros (lamb is my favorite).

Pita Express is a wonderful "Mom and Pop" diner in Hendersonville. The hummus is perfect, the falafel is perfect, the chicken and lamb gyro is great. Portions are generous, the couple that own it couldn't be sweeter. It's a healthy and filling authentic Mediterranean meal.

We had lunch there today and the food was great. Gyro combo with a very green side salad. Hubby had the turkey sandwich with fries. I highly recommend
