    Based on a stop over the weekend, they expect to open Zad by the end of October.

    In other Pita Inn news, they are expanding the market. They have taken over most (if not all) of the strip mall next to the original restaurant. The market looks like it will close to double in size. They are adding a meat counter.

    Construction is underway (the bakery operations have already moved one storefront to the west), but I did not ask for at timetable. The market continues to operate in the original location.

    Does anyone know if Pita Inn allows BYOB? I see the new Skokie location sells non alcoholic beer but not real beer and wine. My family loves Pita Inn but can't get them to go as often since they like to drink beer/wine when going out sometimes.

    You can ask, but I assume if they are selling NA they are not permitting alcohol.

    Unless something has changed recently, they do not permit alcohol or any outside beverages.

    IMO, your solution isn't found at Pita Inn, it's just over a mile east at Larsa's. The non-falafel items are approximately 84736819x's better than Pita Inn (whom I do enjoy). They allow BYOB.

    I swear I'm not being snarky when I ask this, but why didn't you just call the restaurant & ask? You posted this at a time in the day when you could have, the restaurant in question was open, you could've gotten a quick & definitive answer as opposed to waiting for a possibly wrong answer from a bunch of people on "the internet" who don't work there. What happens when someone on here gives you an answer that isn't actually true & you go in there expecting what you read on here???
    sorry....I work in restaurants & am tired of reading speculation & misinformation etc. from people "on the internet." I can't tell you how many times people have waved their phone in our employees' faces showing instagram, twitter, & whatever else & demanding to have the same thing served to them instead of what is on our actual menu on that day. Or insisting that something should be true of our business policies because they "read it on yelp/twitter/facebook/etc etc"

    please.... when you're asking about actual policies of our business, give us a little credit & ask US, not the internet public, huh? Send an email, make a phone call, ask the people who actually work there what their policies are, please! thanks!

    I would submit that LTH commenting is less about strict primary source utility value (I concede that Pita Inn is the rare classically managed restaurant w/ enough HR investment that their word carries reliability), and more about opening a pandora's box of opinionated takes from well informed sources, seeking more qualitative than quantitative feedback.

    During a recent Lunch Visit, I noticed that the price for The Business Lunch Special has crept up slightly- again- as of a few weeks ago, but that the volume of tickets they generate- hasn't trailed off in the least.

    In fact- once when I was talking with The Manager-
    I casually asked "how many of those" (Schwarma-Stacks) do you go through, inna day??!"
    EIGHT- he said, quite casually.......do you realize
    most Middle Eastern places barely sell a-half-a-Schwarma-a-Day :?:
    .......causing many-next-day- Schwarma- to be mushy when reheated.

    Now $7.85 with tax, a 20 percent increase on top of the 20 percent increase four years ago.
    Still a pretty good deal, but no longer the best deal around, IMO.
    Portion size remains the same, as does the good quality.
