Skewers Kabob House began as a family operation in 2003 and was dedicated to bringing healthy and delicious fare to Modesto. That same mission still holds true today, shown by their exceptional lunch and dinner menus, relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere, and pleasurable service. At Skewers, there's really something for the whole family! Bring the kids to eat for free Saturday and Sunday between 12pm and 4pm, enjoy a Mediterranean-style belly dancing show every Saturday, relax with a half-off bottle of wine on Wednesdays, or relax late into evening in our bar patio on the weekends. So whether you're looking to book a private party in one of their two Banquet Halls, or simply want to enjoy some family time with great food, Skewers Kabob House is an excellent choice!

I have never had Persian food before so I can't speak to the authenticity, but the server was very polite and helpful. I tried a chicken dish that had berries mixed in with the rice. It was very flavorful and the chicken was juicy and tender. My husband had their vegetarian cabbage fish which was also very good. We would... More

Well we were the only people in the restaurant, that should have been our first clue.. The portions were skimpy. The waitress was rude. My order, which should have not been spicy was laden with cayenne pepper and really too hot to eat! My friend's lunch was just substandard.. and then came the bill!!! Way too much money for such...

Service is always great! Awhile back, I wrote that we were disappointed that our favorite waiter (Rob) was no longer there--so Matt served us and did a fantastic job as well. We showed up on Friday night expecting to ask for Matt and he was on vacation...okay, now what? The hostess says that we will be having Erin as our... More

The food was very flavorful and there were great choices on the menu. I chose take out this particular day and I'm glad we did - the atmosphere is dreary inside, though the staff is friendly and attentive the place itself needs a facelift. I will definitely be back.
