Roti Mediterranean Grill Expands

Local residents have two big reasons to fire up their taste buds this summer: Roti Mediterranean Grill, a fast casual concept featuring healthy Mediterranean cuisine, is adding two more locations to their existing seven in the D.C. area. One will be unveiled in Union Station’s West Hall (50 Massachusetts Avenue) on Thursday, August 2 and the other by the University of Maryland at The Varsity in College Park (8150 Baltimore Avenue) on Wednesday, August 22.

“With more than 90,000 visitors passing through Union Station’s doors daily, we felt that Roti’s fast, tasty and healthy Mediterranean food was the perfect addition to the existing collection of restaurants,” said Bill Post, CEO.

In celebration of their new D.C. locations, they will be giving away FREE lunch for a year to one lucky customer at each of the two new locations. The public is asked to enter to win by signing up at either of the following links: or In addition, ten (10) second prize winners will receive FREE lunch for a month at both new locations. All entrants will receive an e-mail certificate for a FREE order of falafel.As more customers crave healthy cuisine, Roti is at the forefront of a larger Mediterranean movement.

Roti ( stays true to their “Food That Loves You Back” motto by dishing tasty and healthful Mediterranean cuisine that gives play to natural ingredients like olive oil, vegetables and legumes. Piquing appetites with robust flavors, Roti serves freshly cut fire-roasted meats, traditional side dishes such as falafel and hummus, and deliciously fresh signature dishes. Guests can’t get enough of the modern Mediterranean experience, speedy line, nutritious options, exceptional service and major value.
