Queen Pita redemtion in Riverdale

Hey all in the Riv/Lez.

A few months ago after taking the kids down to a "Youth Mix" at the Jones/Queen park we decided to grab a bight. Da Lez is pretty bleak for food these days, so we ended up over a Queen Pita. Despite the previous negative experience I had with them, I decided to give it another try.

The place has a different look from the last time I was there, and the owner Gus now has his son working with him. I ended up calling my mom and another friend to meet up with us there, so it ended up being 8 of us (4 kids).

I think everything has improved, the falafel was fresh, crunchy and his shwarma was quite good. I was impressed with his Boubaganoushi(sp?) and Hummus. I don't think we spent more than $50 on a few plates and sandwiches which left everyone full and happy.

So for those who where disappointed in the past, perhaps now that he has his son to help out he has more time to put that extra touch in. I would suggest giving it a retry. Not like there's much else around anyways!
