Satiate Those 'Mamma Mia!' Cravings At These 5 Pita-Filled Eateries


Mamma Mia! It's here!  The award-winning production, written by Catherine Johnson and based off of the songs of ABBA, will bring the atmosphere and culture of Greece to San Antonio's Majestic Theatre Tuesday, June 9, and it will run through Sunday, June 14. The musical will likely leave the audience with a craving for Greek food (and a few Swedish earworm hits), so we've compiled a few local restaurants to satisfy those cravings.
