The meat and chicken sold at Sarah's Bakery & Restaurant is certified halal. I personally verified meat and chicken which was labeled as halal was actually purchased from approved halal producers. Sarah’s Bakery & Restaurant has always been in compliance with all USDA regulations and requirements regarding halal products. This is a great store & restaurant, very clean with an excellent and knowledgeable management team.
You must read the labels on the products to make sure the products meets your dietary or religious requirements. If you have any additional questions contact the owners. Mrs. Khaloud and/or her son (Abraham) are always at the store. They are very easy to speak with to answer any questions.
Our office is aware that some other stores are selling meat and chicken that are not halal certified. We are diligently working to visit those stores who falsely label and sell these products when we become aware of these issues.
If I can be of any further assistance please don’t hesitate to contact me.

|★★★★★ I just want to get the chance to thanks everyone who works there. It is a really great supermarket for Muslims needs. I enjoy shopping weekly and everyone there has a willing to help with a big smile on her/his face. The supermarket itself made me feel I am in my home town. No need to ship anything from home because everything I need is there specially meats and rice.|
Thank you Ms.Khaloud for thevgreat supermarket and special thank you to the workers there.
|★★★★★ I love sara's! Best pita! And about 2 years ago they stopped selling non-halal meat. So, they only have HALAL meat now! So, I dont know what some of the other customers are talking about. My husband called their halal vendor about 6 months ago to confirm because we had heard rumors about many stores having non halal meat in dallas and houston. so, we always verify. |

|★★★★★ Sara' Bakery caters to all ethnicities. I'm a Mexican-Persian-American and I love that they have halal meat for my father and other non-halal meat for my mother! |
Yes, you have to read your labels but that is at any and every store! Sara's Bakery has always had great customer service in my opinion and don't decieve their customers...only cater.
I've seen the owners in the store over the years and they're not the type of owners to serve anything to their customers that they wouldn't serve to their own family.
|NR Good afternoon I need the support of anyone who sends mail to the owner of the restaurant Kholud Mrs. Sara backery |
I am a person who worked for years in the restaurant and would like to contact me via e-mail
thanks in advance

|★ When we found out that not all the chicken was halal and that both were packaged almost identically and placed right next to each other we were outraged. When I expressed my concerns to the cashier he acted like it was not a big deal and that some of the other patrons told him that they just say bismillah before eating non-halal food and it magically turns to halal. After that idiotic explanation I walked out to never return and told all my friends about the situation. Needless to say we all threw out a lot of chicken that day. If the owner doesn't care that he is selling non-halal food to his customers then he shouldn't be disappointed that we have all taken our business elsewhere. We are a large community of Muslim students at the University of North Texas and we used to drive for 45 minutes to get here. If some magic word makes machine slaughtered chicken halal then Walmart is only 5 minutes away. God will punish you for your deceit. |
|★★★ Not all chicken meat is zabihah -- please read label carefully! |
|★★★★ The staff is friendly, helpful and knowlegable about their product. I the store itself is inviting and warm. The location is good also.|
|★★★★ I shop in this store several times each week. The employees there are always busy, but I have been waited on very curtiously. The quality of product has been good. I will continue to shop there|
|★★ Store had a decent variety of products,however; I was not impressed with the cashier, he only spoke to me when my little girl kept saying "hello, hello, hello!", finally, he replied. I do not plan to give them my business, I'd rather go someplace people treat my family with some respect.|
|★★ They have the freshest pita bread in town, white and wheat. And it smells so good too. Alhumdillah! If you come on Saturdays, you can feel the warm bread in hot packages.|
I have eaten at the bakery on several occasions. I recommend the shish chicken...it's just perfect with a little bit of hot sauce.
The only thing wrong with Sara's bakery is the service. Being a Muslim, but not being someone who is Arab, I once asked the owner who works there if they had the orange desert that looks like it has carrots on it and has a creme filling on that day (that always is served in the bakery area). Of course, I didn't know that it was called kanafe...she stared at my face for a minute because she didn't understand what I was saying...and then rudely said, "Kanafe" and then walked away.
I am never going there again. Why should I give my money to someone who is so rude?
|★★★ I have been to Sara's often. I love the shish kabob sandwitch most of all. I honestly do not like the rice or the service at the cashier. The rotisserie chicken, babaganouge, kefta kabab and sweets are very good. |
|★★ I've been here once and will not go back. Upon cashing out, the men doing so were having a conversation and didn't even say "hello" or "asalaamu alaykum" or "have a nice day". They just wrang up our order and pretended we were not there. So, I won't go back again and bother them. Very bad service all around. Very dissapointing since they have nice food. |
|★★★★★ "Very well kept, great service ,fabulous food"|
|★★★★ "Very clean store. You can find almost anything you need to prepare middle eastern food. Cons: You can find cheaper prices elsewhere in the same city, the meat is not totaly clear if it is Halal, the chicken is for sure machine slaughtered."|
|★★ Chicken is machine slaughtered.|
|★★★★★ "This is a grocery store + restaurant. Their Zabiha dishes include Shish Chicken, Shish Kabob, Kefta Kabob skewers, Rotisserie Chicken, Hommos, Babaganouge, etc. We thought it was great value for the money. They also had a variety of Mediterranean sweets and foods. It's close to Valley View Ln and 75."|
|★★★★ Great Rotisserie Chicken. Good Lebanese Cuisine.|
