Congratulations to Pita Joe for having figured out how to charge around $6.25, plus tax, for a falafel sandwich. On the positive side, the falafels are fantastic: coarsely textured, fried deep brown, crunchy on the surface, and lightly laced with garlic, which is an estimable innovation. In the style of Israeli eateries, you are allowed to have any of the displayed salad items added to the homemade pita (white or whole wheat), including pickled cukes and baby eggplants, slices of grilled eggplant, cabbage, tomato and cuke salad, etc. There's no extra charge for the added humus, either. The menu is refreshingly short, but also includes chicken schnitzel sandwiches and fruit juices, some of them fresh.
