Pita Inn - Our Wheeling Office

For Community, Clients, Advisors

Many of our clients know that we recently opened a second office in Lake in the Hills. What they don’t realize is that Kaufman Law Group has a Wheeling “office” as well. Okay, it’s not really an office. It’s where we have lunch at least once a week, sometimes more often. It’s Pita Inn, a Mediterranean restaurant located on Elmhurst Road just south of Dundee Road in Wheeling. (They also have locations in Glenview and Skokie).

There was some debate about whether I should be writing occasional blog posts about my favorite restaurants. I promised to include interesting information on my blog. So, to break up the all that dry stuff about taxes, trusts and the like, I decided to include this post about my avocation – food.

There is a reason why there’s a line at all three Pita Inn restaurants during peak times: Great food and outstanding value. This is not a place to go for atmosphere. Sometimes there is a wait for a table, particularly when it’s too cold to enjoy the outdoor eating area.

The big draw is the $4.95 Monday to Friday “Business Lunch Special”. It is a large plate loaded up with kifta (ground beef) kabob, falafel, grilled chicken, beef shawarma, rice and salad with fresh, warm pita bread. Can’t beat it.

During the cold season, the yellow lentil soup is a Kaufman Law Group staff favorite. The owner, Falah Tabahi, suggests adding fresh squeezed lemon juice to enhance the flavors. Kim, Suzanne and Alysse like the fatoosh salad; fresh salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and parsley in a vinaigrette dressing with pita chips topped with chicken shawarma freshly cut from the vertical broiler. I go for the sandwiches; grilled chicken tenders or chicken shawarma in warm pita bread. Add a little hummus and some hot sauce with a diet coke or ice tea and you have a great meal. The average lunch check is less than $7.00 with beverage.

Pita Inn also offers entrée size meals. The chicken tender entrée features four grilled chicken tenders on a plate of tender yellow rice with salad. There is a lot more to like, including a variety of vegetarian choices (so Karen’s happy there, too).

Pita Inn’s secret is the value for the money, and healthy food with consistent quality. The manager, Hamdy, takes good care of us. It’s my favorite lunch spot, and I’ve been going there for years.

Highly recommended. I give it 5 stars.

So the only question is this: When is Pita Inn going to open close to my other office in Lake in the Hills-Algonquin?
