Finally made it to Pita Wheel for lunch. Fun, laid-back atmosphere, very friendly staff.
I had the I Love Lucy burger that comes with slightly spicy pimento cheese and fried onion rings on it. It was really good, would definitely get it again. It is a 1/2 lb. burger so you could split it with someone. I chose a side of cucumber salad, which had diced cucumbers and tomatoes with feta cheese and Greek dressing. It was a nice change from fries.
My mom had the Mad Greek Salad, she said it was very good but a little salty for her. She said next time she would ask them to leave off the feta cheese to cut down on the salt. But all the ingredients were fresh and good. I tasted the chicken tips that came on her salad – they were flavorful but a little dry. But with the salad dressing it was fine.
For the beer drinkers, they have a good selection of craft beers.
They are the best at what they do. Food was excellent. My husband and I both had a philly and fries. I normally don’t eat the fries. The fries had seasoning salt and were excellent. I could not stop eating. The Philly was out of this world. It was served on a pita. This did throw me off and I thought I would not enjoy because it was not served on a hoagie roll. That was not the case. It was phenomenal. It was hot, fresh and had great size portion of meat. Our server, Flora, was amazing!!! Awesome at her job and went way above to take her time to answer all of our questions.
I have yet to travel to Greece but I love to imagine walking through ornately paved walkways and back alleys in Athens with selfie stick in one hand and some well spiced roasted meat. Again, this is just my imagination and because all good things must come to an end (except apparently clichés) I’m thrust back from my make believe respite along the Mediterranean to the beachless borders of Gaston County.
Still famished I must deal with the reality of not being able to experience the taste, smell and texture of my most recent cravings. Or can I? The Pita Wheel in its short time as a stationary entity has become a go to spot for area residents.
I ordered the Grecian. It features chicken tips, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, cucumber tzatziki sauce and a Grecian Dressing. I know that some of you “food people” out there are probably giving the cucumber sauce and the dressing the side eye but trust me when I say, “There was a litany of flavorful, joy inducing explosions” in my mouth.
These flavor bombs were accompanied perfectly by the gyro’s final ingredient, freshly charred sliced onions. The marriage brought about by the onion sweetness, the slight bitter of the char and the well seasoned protein element made for a pleasant surprise in a place that might have gone unnoticed. In addition, the house fries made the 7.89 price well worth it.
Don’t let the fact that Pita Wheel is located in an obscure area of the county keep you from giving it a try.

My only complaint is that they sometimes overdo the peppers. The burgers are juicy, the fries are seasoned similar to cook out but taste even better. The fried pickles are always crisp and fresh and the ranch is homemade. Our go to lunch spot!
