$7.49 huge tasty lunch special

I got two yummy delicious lunch specials Togo. They come with hummus, greek salad, rice, and entree. $4.99 sandwiches look great and a great value! If you have not been, GO!

I can't say enough good things about this place. The food is fresh and flavorful. Lots of healthy, delicious choices. Best lentil soup in the state. It's hard to find a place that the whole family -- even the young, picky-eater daughter -- can agree on. But we love Sahara. I particularly like the soup and the falafels. I love... More

EAT HERE! I adore this place. I have never had a bad meal and the schwarma is to die for. Please note that if you want your choice of dinners, go by 5:00, otherwise they run out. Everything is made fresh each day and they do run out of items because of demand. Definitely worth an early dinner. Please note... More

Consistently wonderful food, from the plate meals to the family platters. Great staff. Expect the line to be out the door--it is that good--but the line moves quickly. Family, friends, couples all dine here.

Adjacent to this restaurant is their butcher and grocery shop. They use fresh succulent meats and it shows (or tastes)! Any meat you buy, it is well marinated and well cooked. Falafels, humus and salads are both fresh and authentic. The place is always crowded and you probably won't find any meat dishes left after 3pm, but you can still... More

My son and I ate here for the first time this past Saturday. We got there just barely past 11:00 with only one couple in front of us. I loved the fact that they have a menu explaining what you get and what each item is so you know before you order. We had no problem finding a table and... More

Sahara is a wonderful place. The food is incredibly good, the prices are very reasonable, and the service is awesome. I particularly love the Lamb and Beef Shawarma platter, and my family can have a great meal at home when we carry-out the Zaki Platter.

Their lunch specials are a great value. I always get my food to go because it's so busy. Portions are gigantic (I replace the hummus and Greek salad with some of their other salads) and the food is delicious. I haven't ran into the whole running out of food issue others mention but have heard it from friends.... So I... More

This is the "Soup Nazi" of Mediterranean restaurants. You'll wait in line and maybe find room to sit and eat. Take out orders are smart. But the lines are there because the food is worth it. Go for authentic foods and not for the ambience and you'll leave happy.

STAY AWAY!!! HORRIBLE SERVICE. The chicken is tasty but what is the point if they don't have it when you call or go there. Also their rice is horrible, really cheap quality. FIrst they rarely answer their phone regularly. Second they run out of food… what is the point of a restaurant if they can't even serve food. I have... More
