Holy lamb!

I have seen this place for awhile, and finally got the chance to stop in. The owner is very entertaining and proud of his food and his story! I got the number 39, and it was some of the best tasting lamb I have ever had! Can not wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!

Arrived on a Sunday at lunch. Needed to wash up from our drive in to Abilene, but there was no customer rest room and the employees bathroom we were offered was dirty, handle on commode was broken off and we did not feel we wanted to stay any longer for a meal. Very disappointed , we love Mediterranean food

Enjoyed the experience of trying middle eastern food-such delicious flavors and great presentation. Meeting the owner and hearing his story added to the experience. It was the highlight for Valentines' day for our college son and his friends.

The food was amazing and Sabah is certainly a welcoming owner. As a member of the Air Force that has served at Sather Air Base in Baghdad (a place Sabah called home) he is just as heroic and patriotic as our military men and women. Support his restaurant and experience the remarkable food he has to offer! Thank you for... More

My husband and I try to stay away from restaurant chains when we travel and always try to seek out great local owned restaurants.
