In the case of Sababa...you choose a base--rice bowl, pita, salad or hummus....plus your spice intensity--then build your meal with a selection of protein (chicken, gyro, kafta, falafel, or veggie), sauce (house, tahini or vinaigrette) and toppings (such as lettuce, onions, tomatoes, banana peppers, chickpeas, pickles, cucumbers, olives, feta cheese). Some toppings (like the feta) incur additional charges to the meal.
We opted to build "bowls" on the assembly line.I chose a Medium Spiced Greek Chicken with Lettuce, Tomato, Olives, Onions, Banana Peppers and the House Sauce.
I liked the House sauce and the flavor combination. If I ordered this again--I would probably request the hottest spice option.
My husband opted for a Spicy Gyro on Rice with Lettuce, Tomato, Garbanzo Beans, Onions, and House Sauce.
The family agreed that this was the favorite of the two entrees we tried (minus the garbanzo beans!) We all agreed that we would like to try pitas as our base on our next visit.
and...a Spicy Feta Appetizer
we reviewed Mezze a couple of years ago and loved it. Well--I have since learned that Mezze's owner SOLD Mezze and opened Sababa. Hmmm. Yay-Reynoldsburg/Blacklick--because the Mezze recipes and customer service protocols were awesome! At any rate--the spicy feta was a hit with the entire family. Even with the picky middle daughter!
Would we recommend Sababa Mediterranean Grill? If you enjoy Greek/Middle/Mezze-Terranean foods served in a "fast food" atmosphere--Sababa should be on your must-try list. I would certainly eat there again--and look forward to building a kafta pita with house sauce soon. We took our order "to-go"--but, the sunny, window filled seating area is welcoming for a lunch break as well. The staff was friendly, the ordering process was smooth, the orders were quickly filled--and we had no complaints about the food at all. I would switch up some ingredients next time--but, it makes an easy way to create a lunch or dinner suited to individual tastes.
