I’d never heard of Pita Pit until a trip to Mammoth Mountain a few weeks ago. It was a nice change from the usual fast-food options, pita sandwiches, custom made. So I was thrilled to see that one was opening just around the block from me here in Newport Beach, on the Balboa Peninsula. Yesterday was opening day!
As you can see, it was crowded. Amazingly so. There had been no promotion about the opening. I talked to one guy in the store who said that day, they’d distributed a few flyers around in local businesses. But pretty much, they seemed to have tapped into a Balboa Peninsula lunch audience that was looking for a change.
After all, there’s only so much Chronic Tacos that you can eat. But if you haven’t, do. They’ve got the best tacos.

And here’s my personal Street View update:
The store is open 8am-11pm, which is great if you need that late night snack made by someone else. They’re also looking to see if they can get extended hours from the city for weekends.
