FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WKRG) — Vince Vaughn and Liam Hemsworth are on the Eastern Shore filming a movie called Arkansas.

In the past week. the two have spent a lot of time at Sage Lebanese Cuisine & Cafe in Fairhope.

Hemsworth has dined in twice and has ordered takeout several times. Vaughn spent several hours at the restaurant on Friday.

Owners Nader and Maritza Salibi say the first time Hemsworth came in, no one recognized him. It wasn’t until he signed the bill that they realized who he was.

“Nobody spotted him,” said Nader Salibi. “All this section was full here. He was sitting across from them and nobody spotted him.”

The two stars each left the owners notes telling them how much they enjoyed the food. It was a small gesture that meant a lot to these small business owners.

“It’s just nice. It makes us feel better about what we’re doing. We know that we’re on the right track and we should keep doing what we’re doing,” said Salibi.

The Salibis say the stars have created an exciting buzz around Fairhope.
