I stopped by for dinner here last week after reading some good reviews on this place. They really give you a hearty portion of food for what you pay so it's a really good deal. For $10 I had a complete chicken kabob plate with a drink!

The food is great, the atmosphere & service too. My favorite is the lamb skewer sandwich. Everything is excellent though.

We recently moved to Texas and the one place that I miss in Bakersfield the most is this one. The food is great and the prices are great for what you get.

I had the chicken kabob and my husband had the lamb kabob. It came with saffron rice, pita with humus and Greek salad. Portions were huge! The food was delicious, very tender and juicy grilled meat. Will definitely eat here again!

I had the lamb kabobs, double hummus with a side salad, the salad was pre tossed with veggies and very tasteful, the hummus is made fresh and the lamb was cooked as I ordered it! The staff was very helpful with my food decision. I was happy with what I order and and look forward to going back. Next time... More

After having read positive reviews, we were disappointed in our food. The lamb was tough & tasteless. Why are customers required to pay extra for low-quality meat? Lots of salad on the platter, but tasteless dressing, & also the grilled veggies had little to no flavor. Wish this had been a better experience, cuz normally we love mediterranean food.

Having been here once before, with a friend for lunch, my wife suggested Flame & Skewers for our 'date' night dinner. I was immediately impressed by how 'open' the kitchen area was. It was easy to see the food being prepared and served and how clean it is in the back. There is a bar area where you can observe... More

I love to eat at Flame N Skewers when nothing else sounds good. I eat so many burgers and Mexican food that sometimes I just want something different. And this is as good a place as any! I suggest a Shawarma plate or the lunch sandwich special with whatever meat you would like (chicken, beef or lamb) and either rice... More

Saw the restaurant while driving on California Ave looking for a place to eat. Ordered the lamb kabob plate which come with rice, flat bread and plenty of humus, and a large salad. You order at the counter and they call your number when the food is ready, get your own plastic cutlery and grab a table. Friendly staff, service... More
