Recent eats: Pita Pit, Burger Daddy, Burger King

UPDATE: Burger Daddy in Grimes has since closed, and a location in Boone has opened.

Wraps at Pita Pit. Meat the Day breakfast wrap, left, with egg, ham, bacon, peppers, onions, hash browns, and cheese, Pepper Jack for my choice, plus Louisiana style hot sauce. Gyro wrap, center. I swapped out red bells and banana peppers for cucumber. Thick tzatziki-flavored sour cream, cool veggies; the white pita is a little doughy, I'll stick with wheat. Falafel wrap, right, with feta cheese, spinach, tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce.

Inferno burger basket at Burger Daddy in Grimes. Housemade hot sauce, lettuce, tomato, a jalapeƱo/banana pepper mix, and pepper jack cheese. Zesty though the hot sauce overpowers most everything else. For a well done burger it retains a few tiny hints of pink, and worth trying again on a simpler build, and most importantly as a double. The onion rings are okay, but the fries were like a McDonalds/Five Guys mashup: skin on, shoestring cut, well done.

Mac n' Cheetos at Burger King. If you like a Kraft cheese powder flavored mush of pasta within a thin veneer of crisp, then rejoice. Five come in a box.
