Sofie’s Pita

Sofie’s Pita is Ramona’s (second) newest restaurant and it’s a wonderful Greek/Meditteranean type affair that’s worth checking out! It’s an order at the counter and find a seat type of place. Despite that, the service was really nice. For my inaugural visit I kept things simple with a Gyros Sandwich with fries. It was artfully presented on a wooden plank but that proved unnecessary. Too much was put on a small plank that it made everything awkward to eat. I’d also recommend ordering tzatziki on the side. My sandwich had such a huge, uneven blob of it. The fries were surprisingly good! Perfectly hot and crispy. Baklava was excellent! I’m definitely looking forward to visiting Sofa’s Pita again soon. Maybe I’ll try one of their combination plates with beef and chicken shawarma.


Victor’s Kafe

Outstanding Gyros Salad at VK in Rancho Bernardo! Hearty portion, great taste and no heavy pita.

The Kebab Shop

(Visited November 25, 2019) Outstanding “Carved Chicken” at TKS in Rancho Bernardo! Kind of like a shawarma. Unfortunately they didn’t have their cucumber salad so I got the Greek salad instead. Wasn’t very good. Hopefully it was just a fluke.

Victor’s Kafe

Outstanding Chicken Shawerma (pronounced “shower-ma”) pita sandwich at Victor’s in Rancho Bernardo!

Outstanding gyro pita at Victor’s Kafe in Rancho Bernardo! Thinly sliced beef & lamb from the vertical rotisserie is enveloped in a warm soft pita, served with rice, salad and an excellent tzatziki sauce.

Daphne’s California Greek 

Outstanding mix & match plate at Daphne’s!  Here’s an excellent grilled shrimp paired with their tasty fresh-carved gyros. Served with small Greek salad, rice, warm pita and tzatziki sauce. 

Victor’s Kafe 

Established in 1996, Victor’s Kafe is a family owned and operated business.  They serve quality Greek and Mediterranean food made from high quality ingredients.  Here’s an outstanding chicken & gyros plate.  

Greek Chicken 

Probably some of the best, most flavorful Greek chicken I’ve ever put in my mouth!  Greek Chicken is a small chain of Greek restaurants in San Diego’s east county for 30 years.   They offer a wide variety of foods including their famous lemon-seasoned chicken, gyros and chicken pitas.  Authentic Greek salads, kabob plates and gyro plates round it all out.  Voted best Greek restaurant in San Diego for 2015, definitely worth checking out.  

Larry’s Santorini Greek Food

While waiting for the road to open this recently I decided to have dinner at the Santorini Greek place on the corner of Espola & Twin Peaks. Had a really good gyro pita with excellent fries. The tzatziki seemed to be on the loose side. I would go back…
