Philly Steak Pita from Pita Pit

Rating: ■■■■■ 5/5 “Loved it”

 Reviewed by James (September 29, 2008)

Monday for the development team at Scheduletown.com has long been affectionately known as “Pita Monday”. So that should tell you right there how popular this whole-in-the-wall sandwich shop is in our office. Pita Pit offers a variety of tasty sandwiches but by far my favorite is the Philly Steak Pita. I always ask for additional onions and green bell peppers to be grilled along with my steak and they are more than happy to comply. I typically go with the white bread pita though they do offer a whole wheat alternative. My veggies and condiments of choice include shredded iceberg lettuce, sliced black olives, sliced jalapenos, salt n’ pepper, and tzatziki sauce (which typically goes on gyros but I love it on the Philly Steak too!). Top the whole thing off with melted cheddar cheese and I’m in heaven.

Now the one negative I’ll comment on here is consistency of the pita itself.  Since this sandwich is stuffed with the ingredients, it’s not uncommon for the wall of the pita to tear (especially if the employee building your pita is new or inexperienced). A ripped pita sometimes leaks or makes the sandwich difficult to handle. But since this happens infrequently it doesn’t detract from my five star rating. We’re not talking steak and lobster here, but if you’re looking for a delicious and affordable sandwich you cannot beat Pita Pit. Check out their website at http://www.pitapitusa.com/

Domino’s Oven Baked Sandwiches Review

 Rating: ■■□□ 2/5 “Didn’t like it”

Reviewed by Barnes (September 30, 2008)

We tried Domino’s oven-baked sandwiches today. Their advertisement boasts that these sandwiches are “baked at 450 degrees and delivered right to your mouth” for a mere $4.99. I tried the Chicken Parm sandwich, which contains chicken, cheese and a tomato basil marinara. What they fail to tell you, however, is that the sandwich is smothered in a ton of grease. I swear the thing looked like it was deep-fat fried. I was expecting more of a Subway type bread, but it was actually more like pizza dough. They don’t give you much meat either. But the taste was pretty good, all-in-all.

As an aside, I will say that Domino’s has the best online ordering website that I have ever seen. Not only do you have complete control over the contents of your sandwich, but they have a handy “pizza tracker” that shows you the progress of your order from start to delivery. The site makes me want to order again. I only wish their food was as good as their site.
