“Good food quick”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

LOVE the falafel pita! I pretty much get that everytime I love it so much. My husband loves a lot of things they have-chicken cesar pita, burgers, hot dogs. They change specials often and have a happy hour of sorts where you get good deals on hot dogs and frys. I would ask for extra fried frys, my preference, since sometimes they aren't cooked enough to my liking. Other than that I love eating here, we go probably once a week!

“Our "Go-To" Place”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Very casual dining (plastic tables and chairs) which is perfect for quick lunch or dinner with the kids. Food is consistently good. They have some of the best lemonade and milk shakes in Wilmington. Don't be deceived by the "shack" appearance - if you want great food at a great price Sahara's the place!

“Great Mediterranean and Milk Shakes”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

This is a favorite stop every time I am in the Wilmington area. There just aren't enough of these types of restaurants--low on amenities, but big on taste. In addition to Mediterranean plates and pita sandwiches, they also have burgers. All food is cooked to order, not fast food.

“What A Surprise!”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 via mobile

Not knowing what to expect from a restaurant named after one of the world's largest deserts, we found a Middle Eastern menu of some of our favorite Middle Eastern offerings from baba ghanoush (they spell it differently) to souvlacki to falafel. We opted for the souvlaki and experience some of the tastiest lamb we have ever found in a drive in restaurant.

My recommendation...next time you are in Wilmington be sure to take the time to stop at the Sahara.

“Authentic Mediterranean food”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

This is a very casual restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. There is quite an extensive menu. We had the gyros ( which they pronounce Yearo, the way the do in Greece). After placing our order, we sat outdoors in an area that had the feel of a Greek Taverna. Our gyros were delicious, comparable with what we had on our recent visit to Athens. The only negative about this restaurant is the very busy street it is located on.
