Sahara has been bringing Wilmington, NC authentic Mediterranean fare alongside delicious American subs, soups and salads for more than 30 years. From our dual take-out windows and outdoor dining oasis to the indoor “Pita Pad” eating area, we’re known for our dedication to cooking good food made fresh to order, and providing a unique and friendly dining experience. Our menu is vast and includes a deep selection of vegetarian items too.
Family owned and operated since 1982 [using owner Edwin’s mother’s recipes], our tasty eats and all of the restaurant’s charm have made Sahara a Wilmington, NC landmark. After all, we brought Mediterranean food to the area! Our gyros are famous—could be because they’re made to order, or maybe it’s the fresh tzatziki sauce or our homemade hummus. Whatever your favorite, we can’t wait to make it for you. Come for lunch. Come for dinner. We look forward to serving you soon!
