Just stopped by for falafel sandwich. Better than most, unique, substantial. Will definitely go back for more.

Sahara Kabob used to be called Big Buns & Pita. Its a bit harder to find now since they changed the awning, but its still the same owners and menu minus the cool name. I think its the family that owns the place who run the restaurant every day, they are very nice. I live a few blocks away and I always feel like I should get food from here more often. Everything I've had has been really good (or great), its cheap, and the portion sizes are usually pretty huge. I am not a dainty eater at all and one take out order is good for 2 or 3 meals for me, probably 2 for the bf. We usually get the lahmim beajin- like a small pizza thing with ground beef and spices, sometimes the crust is a little soggy but its sooo tasty I never really care. The cornish hen is char grilled or something so the outside is a tiny bit blackened, inside its juicy and tasty. I love the kefta kebab too. They also have some less common middle eastern dishes here (Assyrian?) that I haven't tried yet but I've heard the lamb shank is really good.

I went into this place famished during Ramadan and was pleasantly surprised. The hummus was super-creamy - as good as any I've had up on Kedzie or on the South Side, the lentil soup soothing, and the shawerma platter substantial. Also try their Iraqi style Kibbeh, something you won't find at other Middle Eastern restaurants. Recommended.
