“You can't beat this for the price and hometown feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Pita Vera is a Mediterranean, rather Lebanese style, restaurant in Blacksburg. It has been around for a few years and was previously called More Than Coffee.

There's something for everyone. Try the lunch special (spinach lentil soup, side salad and a pita bread) for $6.95. You can also buy a side of hummus or baba ghannouj for go with the pita as I usually do. If you don't care for pre-made salad dressings ask for some olive oil. Their signature pita bread is freshly made and comes out warm and puffy. Very tasty.

If you have a bigger appetite or go there for dinner, I suggest the kabob platter -- beef, chicken or mixed -- for about $10.50. You'll get the kabobs with grilled veggies, the pita bread, of course, with humus, a side salad, and some rice. I don't think that you'll be disappointed. This is not a fancy restaurant but a local place where you'll find families, older couples and students intermingling. For a bigger party, I suggest the maaza platter that has the pita bread, the side salad, and a choice of three accompaniments. I suggest the hummus, baba ghannouj and balila (which is a chickpea, i.e., garbanzo bean dish).

Its a nice, relatively inexpensive place. The servers and management are friendly and attentive. You pay at the cash register where they have gluten free cookies should you be in the market for one.

“Great lunch spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Pita Vera is one of my favorite places in Blacksburg for lunch. Their service is great and the food is delicious. I particularly recommend the Maza Tray (listed as an appetizer). It comes with a choice of 3 mediterranean dips and one warm, puffy pita.
