Long lines, lots of food, good value

Very popular place. 24 hours a day and always a crowd. Good food, good portions. Very small inside so more conducive for take out. A good choice if you are not in the market for more expensive places down the block with wait staff.

We had a hankering for kabob and Kabob Palace satisfied. There's a reason this place has for years ranked among the best in the area.

This place is amazing after a night of going out! It's like a beacon in the distance, calling you in to their amazing chickpeas and kabobs. I love this place and all of them are delicious. The best part is that you can get this deliciousness anytime day or night! Don't miss it!

This has become my go to place coming to town late at night. Food is good and plentiful. It is a small place and service can take some time but it is certainly worth it. Today even the executive chefs from the Marriott and Sheraton hotels were having lunch here. I have seen other food service people on previous visits.... More

One of the best kabob's i have tasted, lamb, chicken, and kubideh are all delicious, moist and perfectly cooked. The chickpeas are outrageous, bread and rice are perfect. prices are reasonable but seatings are limited. There is always a long line but this place opens 24/7.

This was my family's first experience with middle eastern food. We absolutely loved it. We went to the Kabob Palace sit-down restaurant . I ordered a plate featuring a lamb kabob and a chicken kabob. The kabobs were delicious but my favorite was the seasoned chickpeas. Loved the flatbread as well. We went there 3 months ago and still can't... More

If you’re looking for a great meal at 10 p.m., midnight, 6:35 in the morning, or any time, the Kabob Palace serves superb, intensely flavored food 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I don’t live in DC, but I always try to stop at this out-of-the-way cafeteria-style Arlington restaurant when passing through the Capital area. Order at the... More

Visited on a Saturday evening and there was a line out the door, generally a good sign. Food did not disappoint, very tasty and big portion for the money, a great value. Biggest complaint was exceedingly slow service. It took 50 mins to get food after I ordered while customer orders seemed to be filled in no logical order. Employees... More

If you like your food served on paper plates with plastic utensils in a filthy dining room that hasn't been cleaned in decades, than this a the place for you! Portions are big enough to buy one plate and feed a family of four (I'm not exaggerating!). If you want fast and cheap, this is a great place. I was... More

The food at this Kabob Palace is exceptional. The meats are perfectly prepared...the chicken and lamb chops are my favorites. All of the vegetable dishes and breads are also great. The only problem is the crowds and the space. On this visit, after waiting in line for 10 minutes there was a 45 minute wait for the food to be... More
