        I have been to 2 of the 3 places. They r both well above average.

        next to Pita Plus is a Moroccan restaurant(take out) which is excellent

      only been to 2 of the 4 Pita Plus is one of my favorites!

      sunrise grill I have not been to in about 5 years. From what I can remember the food was good but the door to the bathroom was so dirty, black and gross that I was afraid to go in and never went back!

        Noor Bakery, just west of the airport (FLL) has a small menu of manakish (maybe 8 items in total?) and a tiny dining room, but it's well worth a visit. The pies are made from fresh dough when you place your order, fantastic and fresh!

        Noor Bakery & Deli
        4691 Ravenswood Rd
        Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312

        Al Salam in Plantation offers a more traditional Middle Eastern menu, and there are a few other Middle Eastern restaurants nearby that I haven't explored yet.

        There's another Pita Plus outpost in Sunrise (3801 N University Dr.,) and Pita Oven a little further north (4613 N University Dr.)

        I'd avoid Fala Pita.

          Noor Bakery (On anglers lane just north of Griffen) is one of my favorite places but they do not serve Falafel. Great fresh food and everything $1.50 to $2.50.

          While we are on the subject of Al Salam. Truluck which closed almost a year ago just bought out the Pasha grill just next door to Al Salam

              +1 Pita Pockets, in Hollywood. Had the beef/lamb shawarma. Delicious, huge portions, wasn't able to finish it all. Note -- don't wear a white or light colored shirt to eat here. The pita doesn't -- couldn't possibly -- stand up to the juiciness of the concoction. Be sure to get the tabboule on the pita pocket.

                  I didn't try the falafel, but their version is made from garbanzo beans (chick peas).

              Sunrise Pita is a very unassuming shopping strip on university drive just north of sunrise. The place has been around for more than a decade. A credit for that type of restaurant.
