Yum! (just not for those who have to hurry)

Delicious and attentive. Summer in Storrs is a little sleepy and quiet but after traveling all day to get there, we were thrilled that Sara's Pockets was still open/keeping to their posted hours .

Sara's Pockets sells freshly made wrap sandwiches, also plates, including Gyros, lamb kebobs, and other very tasty Eastern Mediterranean combinations. Each item is made to order by the owner and his wife, so there is a lag from the time you order to the time your food is served, but the food always arrives hot, fresh, and beautifully seasoned. Cash... More

We came to this very simple place for lunch on a Saturday and at first were the only customers. I had read the Tripadvisor reviews and so had been forewarned that service would be slow. It was. The owner, while very friendly, moved at a glacial pace, and it took him a good 20 minutes to prepare a simple Greek... More

I just had the best falafel pocket I've ever eaten. And thanks to their neat way of wrapping up the toasted pita this was also the first time I've eaten a pocket without getting it all over my hands. The homemade baklava was also wonderful.

Trusted trip advisor for a lunch recommendation at Sara's Pockets while visiting UCONN. Ordered the grilled vegetable pocket - was supposed to have vegetables and hummus inside a grilled pita. My sandwich had...I don't know what....mushy unidentifiable things inside of it. Could not eat it. One of the worst things I have ever been served. My daughter's sandwich - very... More

Sara's Pockets came highly recommended from all my foodie friends. We ate the spanakopita, gyros, baba ganoush, and the baklava. The owner is as talented as he is friendly! :) I only wish there was a little more atmosphere to the restaurant itself in terms of decor. Be careful climbing up the stairs to the place too, the staircase has... More

This is one of our favorites restaurants. There is a bit of wait because everything is fresh made from Sam and Sara. We especially love the Baba Kanouch and spinach pies.

Saras's Pocket has the best falafel (5 pieces) I have ever had! Very healthy and homemade mediteranean food! The owners are so friendly and helpful. Excellent customer service and the restaurant is very clean. It is open 7 days a week from 11 am to 11 pm.

Fun place to grab a quick lunch on campus. Going for Mediterranean, Middle Eastern or Vegetarian cuisine instead a boring sandwich. Falafel pocket was good.

This is a classic Mediterranean lunch place. Smallish menu with mostly sandwich type. My wife had a classic Gyro with a choice of two sauces. I had a lamb, peppers and onion wrap with a really tasty marinade. We also had a spinach pie which are triangular crusts stuffed with spinach and spices. Excellent!
