One of our favorite restaurants, be sure to arrive early because they sell out! Love the Shwarma and Kabobs and best tasting hummus. Husband says the lamb kabobs are the best he's had. One of the best lunch bargains in town.

Sahara is the best Mediterranean food in Lexington (except for the falafel-- Gyroz on Waller has quite possibly the best falafel in the world). They're often sold out before closing time, and for good reason. In a city overrun with bland chain restaurants and fried...More
