The newest location for Gotta Eatta Pita’s fresh Mediterranean food just opened in Antioch, on Monday, on Mahogany Way across from the Lowe’s store and next door to KFC. Owners Yaniv Benaroya and Eric Huber, who have been active in Antioch real estate for the past several years with their Property Upsurge company, are excited to open one of their restaurants, here, as well. The Antioch location is the fifth in their chain, which includes locations in Danville, Pleasant Hill, Pleasanton and San Jose.
They’re holding their Grand Opening, this Saturday and are giving away free Pita from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
You’re gonna want to try their tasty menu items. Yaniv’s mother, Shoshi Benaroya is the one whose recipes they’re using.
Plus, it’s healthy food, too. Their hand-baked, fresh daily pita bread has no preservatives or dairy. The chicken shawarma is all natural, raised without hormones and always served fresh. The falafel is freshly ground with herbs and spices and their feta cheese is made with 100% sheep milk. A portion of the veggies they serve is organically grown and they buy local whenever possible.
Even their sodas are healthy, and tasty, too. When I stopped by on Monday with my mom, I tried the Stubborn Agave Vanilla Cream. Mmmmm. Yaniv let us sample their newest menu item, healthy French fries with the skin on them, which they’re testing in Antioch, first. Gotta Eatta Pita also serves salads and baklava for dessert.
So, stop by this week and try out one or more of their menu items (see below) and download the flyer, above bring it with you, this Saturday for your free stuffed pita.

Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse has been serving up homemade hand tossed pizza in the greater Sacramento area since 1987. Last year Pete’s expanded with a new location in Antioch with a few partners, including Jasminder “Jaz” Kaur. Having experience in the hospitality industry, owning a hotel and RV park for the past 16 years, she decided to buy out her partners and has taken the reins of the restaurant.
Jaz wants residents to enjoy a unique dining experience in Antioch, with the best architecture, atmosphere and ambiance in town, and most importantly the best food. From their signature and build-your-own pizzas, salads, like the delicious Pete’s Steakhouse salad, soup of the day, pastas, burgers, sandwiches such as their tasty hot pastrami, flatbreads – the Mediterranean is a favorite, and appetizers like their unique Famous Knots.
“Customer service and keeping people happy is our focus,” Jaz said. “We encourage everyone to join us for lunch or dinner and experience Pete’s, again or for the very first time. We’re sure you’ll be back.”
They’re currently offering lunch specials for just $6.99 every weekday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.: Half Sandwich & Soup on Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Wing Wednesdays, chicken strips and fries on Thursdays and a personal pizza on Fridays.
Pete’s also offers 46 beers on tap and a variety of wines to go with their great food choices, which can be ordered to go, or enjoyed on their outdoor patio next to the fireplace.
Located at 2709 Hillcrest Avenue, off Larkspur just off the Highway 4 on- and off-ramps, near County Market, Pete’s is open every day 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. For reservations call (925) 522-2222. For more information visit their website at www.petesrandbantioch.com and “Like” them on Facebook.
