Delicious Greek & Lebanese Food at a Great Price

My wife and I eat at Sahara regularly, and I can't imagine getting my Mediterranean fix from anywhere else. The food is authentic, and the owner will take the time to explain to you how the grape leaves (the best ones we've ever tasted) are cooked for over a full day to infuse them with the correct... read more

Had a lunch special (lamb kebabs), and the food was amazing. Lamb was tender and flavorful, humus was superb. However, it was 10.99 before tax and was a very small plate. I left hungry. I would love to come back but not sure if I would because I would probably need two plates to be honest (I'm an average size... More

I've been here many times and always enjoyed my food, but this time they had half of the menu marked out. They didn't even have moussaka! The falafel was tasteless. I was just really disappointed.

I would go back to this restaurant many times if I could. Have tried it twice the food was excellent both times. The hummus was the best I've ever eaten including a trip to the middle east. The falafel and gyro wraps were wonderful...the stuffed grape leaves equally good. Their desserts were less impressive but still yummy. If you are... More

Hey Tripadvisor, the name is Sahara Greek, not Creek. I stopped through here on a road trip and grabbed a falafel wrap plus some stuffed grape leaves. The grape leaves were okay but the falafel wrap was wonderful. All the ingredients seemed fresh and the food was made to order. I had to wait less than 10 minutes but they... More

I really enjoyed my grilled chicken breast platter with salad and rice (baklava was only average)...it was very tasty but my, oh, my.....it took almost an hour to get our meal. Normally, Mediterranean/Greek restaurants are pretty fast but this was certainly not the case here. I would like to go back but my husband is reluctant because of the time... More

Enjoyed lunch there on Saturday. We are currently trying to eat low-carb and had no problem finding something on the menu to accommodate us. The food was outstanding, the service was delightful and we will definitely be back soon.

I have eaten at the Sahara off and on for many years. There may be a new manager or new cook because the food is now really, really exceptional. My wife and I have had three absolutely excellent meals there over the past two weeks. The grilled chicken breast plate with Greek salad and foul madamas beans is out of... More

My son and daughter suggested this place and they were on the mark! I had the chicken breast with garlic yummys on it. If your visiting here in Tally or live here try this gem you won't regret it.

That's what my daughter and I thought after dining at Sahara. The falafel were freshly cooked, just the right density, not soaked with oil, perfectly crispy on the outside and wonderfully seasoned. Best falafel ever! My lentil soup was really good and made with red lentils. I forget what my daughter had, but she raved about it. Dessert was baklava.... More
