We had an early dinner here, during spring break. The service was great. We had Greek Fries (excellent), Falafel, Baba Ganoush (mild flavor), Gyro Wrap, Falafel Wrap, Chicken Wrap, sides of hummus and Tabouleh. All were very good, with the exception of the Greek Fries that were excellent and addictive! Tabouleh is heavy on the greens (how I like it)... More

Although the location has changed the food hasn't...great as always! My wife's go-to is the grape leaves, for me it is the chicken shawarma! Don't forget to order the Sahara Tea!

The new location right across the street in the shopping center has more space and easy parking. The food is still outrageously good, far better than any chains offering Mediterranean food. This is the real deal. Wonderful staff and service. You now order at the counter and they bring it to you. Still very fast service. This is one of... More

To say that the Sahara's food is delicious is an understatement! I absolutely love their grilled chicken and hummus! The chicken is juicy and tasty and the hummus is smooth and light! I've been having a blast introducing my friends to this place. They all walk away loving it as much as I do!

The Sahara recently moved from its long-time spot on E Lafayette to across the street in the Parkway Shopping Center. Much nicer inside, more room between the tables, and a little quieter atmosphere, but the same great food and service. We ordered lamb kebabs, but our friendly and efficient waiter said the lamb shanks were the special for the day.... More

Brought a friend for her first time visit. She wanted to know why she had never been here before. We both just had a fantastic dinner. Love the new location.

We escaped hurricane Matthew and temporarily relocated to Tallahassee for a few days. We tried Sahara on a lark. The food is really, really good. As my father said many times, it is "morish" as you always want more!

Hadn't been here in years and had always been somewhat indifferent to the place. Food had been good in the past, but never remarkable. Probably why we hadn't visited in a few years. The menu was new and a bit more interesting than in the past and there are several things I would like to have tried. But I selected... More
