“The East Valley, and Mesa in particular, has proved to be a fertile and vibrant ground for the spread of our healthful eaters. We are extremely grateful for the loyalty we have engendered from our Mesa patrons and are very enthusiastic about the beautiful future Pita Jungle site in the backdrop of the Red Mountain.”

Bassel Osmani, co-founder of Pita Jungle

The newest location has taken over the former home of Osteria at 5609 E. McKellips Road in Northeast Mesa. The large main dining area and outdoor patio flow seamlessly into the interior thanks to wide doorways leading to a full bar.

The newest Pita Jungle will be open for lunch, happy hour and dinner all week. While each location has its own look and energy the third Mesa Pita Jungle and will be serving all the familiar dishes that locals have come to crave and love. (I’m looking at you hummus trio with chicken!)

Franchisee owner Jeff Bufano has shared that the new Mesa restaurant will be a “bright inviting space flooded by natural light.” The decor will pay homage to Palm Springs with specific design touches while the decor will incorporate several local landmarks.

This Pita Jungle location created a combination of approximately 60 full and part-time positions, ranging from the kitchen team to servers and everything in between.
