College Park to Woodbridge: Pita and BBQ

Dennis S | Feb 26, 2006 01:31 PM

Saturday was spent half in College Park for a seminar/class and then to Woodbridge for a bike trailer purchase found on Craigslist. I chose the opportunity to investigate a couple of places recently posted on the board, though I'm pretty sure I got the first one wrong.

The seminar served pizza, but they served Papa John's which allowed me to easily skip the free food and hold out for my investigation. This was a follow up to the Schwarma discussion a few days back. I had forwarded the rec for Pick a Pita to my wife who goes to grad school at UMD. Somewhere in there it got translated by her to Pita Pit. She gave me the directions, and by the time I was there, hungry as could be, I didn't remember the name as posted. I went in and immediately had reservations, which grew when I found no schwarma on the menu, AND that they have things like black forest ham(!?!).

Being this hungry and still slightly in doubt I went ahead and got a falafel. Ignoring the questioning part time college student working the counter when she couldn't believe I didn't want mustard, pickles or mayo on my falafel, I stuck to tzaziki (sp), cucs, lettuce and toms. I was actually pleasantly surprised to find a light but strong pita, some actually pretty decent falafel and fresh ingredients otherwise. The tzaziki (sp) was a little thick and creamy, but not terrible.

Not a place to venture to, but if you're in the area regularly, it's not a place to avoid neccesarily. I'm not fully sure of other offerings nearby except for the original Ledo's by car, but I thought I'd report.

I would like to know the location of Pick a Pita as mentioned by Jenn.

The second half of the day is already reported in the link below and is about Dixie Bones in Woodbridge.

Do not attempt the drive between the two unless you are a trained professional (and the trip included an Ikea trip in the middle - I want my badge of honor!)
