The Pita Place is a family-owned Mediterranean restaurant located in Williamsville, NY owned and operated by Elie Harfouche. Originally from Lebanon, Elie relocated to Buffalo in 2007. The only boy among four sisters, Elie discovered his culinary talent at a very young age while working along side the women in his family. It has long been a dream of Elie to share the traditional food of his country with his customers. If you were to visit Lebanon, you would find an open kitchen environment just like The Pita Place with made to order Shawarma. Bringing this authenticity was the passion behind The Pita Place. With the help of his wife and close family and friends, they crafted this menu with all people in mind. Vegan and gluten free options were important to include so that even those with food sensitivities can enjoy the traditional tastes of Lebanon. In fact, you will find Elie's family throughout the menu - several of the traditional favorites are named after his children, wife & mother.
We feature original style shawarma-slowly cooked meat from our vertical rotisseries, cut fresh to order. We also feature an array of vegan and gluten free options, french fries right from our wheat-free fryer. Stop by and say "hi" to 'Eli" (the Shawarma guy)!
