Pita Jungle Opens New Restaurant at Mill Ave. in Tempe

Twenty-one years ago, three Arizona State University students wanted to open a restaurant for Mediterranean food Tempe residents could go to for a healthy alternative to the food options that were around the university area at the time. It was then, back in 1994, that the original Pita Jungle was born in its very first location on Apache Blvd. Today, the original flagship restaurant has relocated to a larger space at the vibrant, high-profile corner of Mill Avenue & University Drive; gateway to one of the Valley’s most popular entertainment districts. The location may have changed, but Pita Jungle is still providing the same excellent customer service and high-quality Mediterranean food Tempe residents and ASU students have enjoyed for the last two decades.

Pita Jungle’s menu is steeped in the culinary customs of the Mediterranean with a touch of modern flair. We use traditional blends of nutritious herbs and spices from the region that infuse lighter, healthy dishes with incredible flavor. Our dishes are made from fresh ingredients and we keep it light by choosing not to deep-fry. Our crowd-pleasing favorites include our broiled Philly Steak, Marinated Chicken pitas, Broiled Fish Sandwich, and Wood-Fired Salmon Salad. Pita Jungle has great vegetarian options too! Vegetarians love our Chipotle Black Bean Burger, Grilled Portobello, Falafel, and veggie Lavosh Pizzas.

For Mediterranean food, Tempe’s Pita Jungle is the place you can come to discover The Art of Eating Healthy®. Check out our menu at PitaJungle.com.
