I ride the bus often, and at times, have to wait at the Spokane Transit Authority (STA). If I am getting hungry and have a couple bucks on me, I’ll go up to the second floor and get a slice of pizza at Pizza Rita’s. I have never ordered a whole pizza from them but their slices are pretty good.
My favorite slices are veggie and Hawaiian. I like the cheese and the sauce is not too tart or sweet. There is usually just the right mixture of meat, fruit, and veggies on a slice. I have never had to wait for a slice of pizza but I know others have due to being there when it has happened.
The staff is usually friendly and welcoming. If they are at the counter when you leave, they acknowledge you, say thanks and come back again.
The atmosphere can be a bit edgy. The dining room is small. The window seats are the most popular and fill up quick. Staff tries to keep it clean but cannot always keep up with it. There is usually an array of the population present, from business men and women, disabled persons, the homeless, and others just trying to scam a buck. This is due to being located at the bus plaza and bus riders come from all walks of life.

Customer comments that were expressed in my presence on 4/18/14-waited to eat before catching a bus home. I made it to Pizza Rita at 5:50 pm. As I walked into the store, they sold the last slice. Employee said I could order a whole pizza. No thanks. They closed 7 minutes early. You know, some people need that extra 5-10 minutes you’re supposed to be open. Definitely not good business to run out of product early, and then close before closing time.
