Best lunch special in town

Incredible place for lunch. The lunch special is easily enough to split with someone or split with yourself for two meals!

There is always a line at this place and that usually tells us that the food is good. In this case, for Lexington, this place is unique. I cannot say that its the best middle eastern food I've eaten, but for Lex. its good. Everything was sold out when I went there. I ended up getting the veggie plate and... More

If you are looking for fresh food cooked properly. When you see a long line on the door that do tell you that this a popular place. I have been eating at this place from last 8 years and recommend it highly

High quality of food and serving for very affordable price. I would recommend it for everyone. If you are Turkish coffee fan, you might pass it in this place, kinda light coffee, not as strong as we have in Middle East

The food there is great. I have had the Sahara chicken and beef kabob specials. Both are so very tender and delicious. The hummus is awesome and fresh. The food is fresh and you can tell. I will be eating here regularly. The service is great. There is always a line so you know it's good. Has to be one... More

I'll just make this simple... My sister told me we had to get there early. I thought maybe the place filled up fast. Nope! I was wrong. The food is so good, it's gone by 6PM. Yes! All the major meat platters were gone! We did get there in time to get a platter for the 5 of us, and... More

Best Falafel!!. If you're looking for good, authentic Mediterranean - this is the place to go! Their Falafel is absolutely fantastic! Everything there is good, but the hummus and falafel are my favorite.

I am a family man and an entrepreneur, I support other family men who are entrepreneurs. When I first heard Sahara closes for two months I was devastated. My first thought was these people have no idea how to do business, then further speculations of my mind thought this is a gimmick, and finally reality set in when I heard... More

We have tried several times to eat here for lunch and tried varying the time also. They are always crowded with patrons standing in line to place their orders. No surprise as we finally got in line and hoped there would be somewhere to sit with our food. The food was absolutely one of my favorite meals ever. I had... More

The times I have eaten here the food is great. However, I have driven there twice from across town only to be told (prior to 6 pm) they are out of food. The ambience is very poor---compare to a student cafeteria . Will not go there again.
