Enjoyed lunch there on Saturday. We are currently trying to eat low-carb and had no problem finding something on the menu to accommodate us. The food was outstanding, the service was delightful and we will definitely be back soon.

My son and daughter suggested this place and they were on the mark! I had the chicken breast with garlic yummys on it. If your visiting here in Tally or live here try this gem you won't regret it.

Everything at Sahara is good. Sometimes they take a long time to get food out but it ALWAYS worth it.
