Our Story

Welcome To “U Need A”

From humble beginnings at the first U Need A Pita location on St. Paul Street in June 2008, to 5 locations across the Niagara region today, we were built on the desire for better fast food.  Although we’ve gone through many changes over the years, we’ve always stayed true to our use of fresh ingredients and we’re very grateful for the loyal customer base we’ve built across the beautiful Niagara region.

Developing the menu over the years at U Need A

Premium Pita Wraps

We use traditional Lebanese style pita wraps, which are thin and easy to stuff full of whatever you love!  Each pita comes with your choice of fresh toppings, a huge selection of sauces and made from scratch proteins.

Handcrafted Angus Burgers

We use a custom grind and blend of Angus beef to handcraft our burgers at every location.  When you order a burger, we smash it down on our flat top grill, giving it a flavourful crust.

Authentic Poutine

We hand-cut Ontario potatoes at each location daily and fry them using a special two-stage process.  We use authentic cheese curds from Quebec and a classic gravy that’s naturally gluten free and vegan.

What People are Saying 

“All really well put together”

The spicy burger is amazing, the meat, the caramelized onions, their fries. All really well put together, with the deep fried jalapeños. The steak pita is also delicious and filling since it has fries in it, check out if you’re in the area wanting a burger or a pita.
