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.

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

Was staying at hotel nearby and walked to this restaurant. Small place but the line was almost out the door. Big portions - took our food to go. Food was a bit spicy though - not for those who don't like a little kick!

Excellent taste of kabob in average price. They served a good portion of food and also complimentary tea. And most favorable thing is that they are open 24 hrs. So, get any time and enjoy there.

This is a Pakistani style restaurant. We ordered the sampler for $20 and shared it between 2 people and still had leftovers. Be warned, it has a bit of a kick to it, but it was a good kick! Also, Our plae was the most expensive thing on the menu, most mealsrange from $7-$14.

This place is a dive but a dive with yummy-licious food. I kid you not when I say have a healthy appetite before coming here. Their portions are no joke. I had leftovers for 2 days! If you do not like spicy this may not be the place for you. Their food have a nice kick to it.

The food is wonderful! But the service is truly awful. I don't mind waiting for good food, but rude service is really not acceptable. It seamed like singe females are not valued customers here.

Food was great, especially the lamb chop. I had their lamb chops twice in a week. The side dishes are of good quality, the spinach is delicious. Anyway, lamb is what brought me back for second visit. Service and atmosphere are less than desirable but totally acceptable if all you need is great food and nothing else. Price is reasonable,... More
