The atmosphere inside the restaurant is similar to the one that you find in some shelters.
They have an external patio, but is not yet in use being in the Winter season.
I order a cup of tomato-basil soup and arrived cold after long time. The soups of the day are always ready and hot in a kitchen, evidently the server forgot my soup in the kitchen counter. The flavor of the soup was messy without a clean and fresh flavor like a tomato-basil soup is suppose to have.
I also order the plain Hummus with kafta (ground beef). Hummus is a chick peas puree
with some flavors (garlic, etc.). What I receive was a small plate with a thin layer of hummus spread on the dish and with a table spoon of a ground beef preparation in top. The hummus flavor was ok, but the ground beef preparation was edible, but nothing very attractive. The quantity of the ground beef was to small for the price of 10.79 dollars that the server wanted to bill to me, despite that in the menu was listed at 9.79. The justification of the server was that the menu prices were increased. But a serious and professional restaurant can not bill you a new price without changing the prices in the men first. She took out the dollar, but even at $ 9.79 the dish was very expensive for a thin layer of a chic peas puree with a table spoon of ground beef served in a small dish. In top of all of the above the pita bread on the side was partially
uncooked (that means that is missing a quality control in the kitchen).

The menu was so enormous that it was difficult to choose an entree. We decided on the portabella mushroom burger, California beach wrap and a burger with pomegranate molasses. All of the food was fresh and wonderful. A man performing with an acoustic guitar was taking requests. It did take a while to get our bill, however several people checked to see if we needed drink refills during our dinner. We had a delightful dining experience and will plan to visit again.

You have to love a place that reinvents itself.
Pita Jungle has been around for a long time, and my visit there yesterday impressed me again with their inventive cuisine and dedication to fantastic food!

We went there and had a number of items..

Dolmathes - light and fresh.. I could eat these for days!
Gyro - my favorite. The lamb was tender and moist.. just what you'd expect. There was a perfect balance with the complimenting ingredients.. AWESOME.

Seared Ahi and Hummus - wow! That was a treat. The seasoning they use is superb.
Chicken and hummus - always a winner!

I love this place.

I was unfamiliar with the Pita Jungle chain of restaurants in the Phoenix area. A nice chain from burger and chicken joints. Loved the Philly Steak Pita at a VERY reasonable price. The grilled vegetable salad was also very good. While I am not well versed on Greek cuisine, I could find plenty to enjoy.
