Pita Jungle: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Pita Jungle, 4921 E. Ray Road, Phoenix. (480) 785-PITA (7482). More than seven other Valley locations, including Tempe, Scottsdale, and downtown Phoenix. www.pitajungle.com

The Hours: 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Reverse happy hour is from 9 p.m. to close daily.

The Details: On the drinks menu, all beer (draft, premium bottled, and domestic bottled) is $1 off. House wines are down to $3 a glass, and your standard margarita is only $3.29. Pita Jungle spins its happy hour nibbles in a whole new direction with an extensive selection of small plates. Priced at $1-3, these tapas include many of your favorites from the appetizer menu (Hummus Trio, Dolmades, Falafel) as well as fresh creations like Steamed Mussels in White Wine ($2) and Shrimp in Ajo Sauce ($3). They have decent portion sizes for two people, but could easily serve as welcome taste-tests for larger groups.
