Updated in 2021! Pita Pit is a fast casual, build-your-own spot for fresh pitas, bowls, and salads. They have Subway-style ordering, but with their own array of fillings, sauces, and pita options. Like similar chains, Pita Pit has a plethora of dairy-free options when you skip the cheese. We’ve detailed those choices below, along with the vegan options and notes for other top allergens.
Dairy-Free Menu Guide for Pita Pit with Vegan Options

All dairy-free pitas can be served in any of the pita wraps listed below, as a salad, or as a bowl. This information is based on the U.S. menus, and we have added a few notes for Canadians.

What Others Are Saying ...
Funnily enough, my family and I ate at a Pita Pit in Starkville, Mississippi just a day after this post came out about the restaurant – without us having seen it on GoDairyFree first! We weren’t sure what to expect despite looking at their menu online first, but what we found was great service, great food and an all-around terrific experience. The employees accommodated our dairy allergy by cleaning the grill thoroughly, bringing boxes from the back so we could check ingredients, and even put the customers that came in behind us on hold until our food was done! They also had fresh, unused vegetables they offered to use in place of what was out, to avoid cross-contamination, and had clearly labeled dairy-free, gluten-free or vegan/vegetarian sauces and pita components. My sister, whose has the worst (and most immediate) reactions of our family when exposed to dairy, had zero symptoms of a reaction following our meal. Though every location is different, we all loved Starkville’s Pita Pit and cannot wait to go back! I highly recommend checking them out!
