Taste the Mediteranean in Birmingham

Had lunch yesterday at The Pita Hut on Hwy 280 (114 Highway 280, Birmingham - (205) 980-7482) and just wanted to rave. The tabbouleh salad was excellent (full of parsley and tomatoes) and I had one of the best flavored kefteh (a ground beef and lamb patty with spices) ever, served over rice with grilled vegetables.Every sandwich comes with homemade hummus and pita chips (also homemade).

I have been slowly working my way down the menu. The owner, Joseph, is wonderful and always in the kitchen, overseeing and tweaking the menu. He will even cook to order and cater.

On site, they also sell a small selection of groceries, including falafel mix, desserts, tahini, grape leaves, exotic teas and jams, etc.

      I love this place. Hate the name, LOL. It's at 280 and Valleydale, behind the free-standing Sneaky Pete's.

        Let me guess: red roof and they specialize in pan pita,
