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!

Lunch

We were sitted promptly and drinks were brought in a timely manner. We ordered and let our waitress know if she could wait to bring our food until a certain time. She did. Food was great and customer service was great too. Will be coming again.

It was the first time for me visiting the Skewers restaurant. My family had ordered dinner to-go for 20 people for an engagement family dinner. I was amazed by the professional level of the service and the crew’s conduct. They were efficient and friendly at the same time. While they were preparing my order, I was offered a complimentary hot... More

I met my niece and brother-in-law at Skewers for an early Christmas lunch. The dining room is missing a good bit in the way of decor, but the food is delicious. We started by sharing their appetizer sampler: dolmas, hummus, eggplant, yogurt dip and a little salad. The hummus was my favorite, but it was all good. Lunch was good... More

We visited Skewers on a whim as we walked past. The food was excellent and the service attentive and friendly. We enjoyed a cocktail or two and the moscow mules were most welcome. We started with the sampler and the beef was beautifully cooked and very flavoursome. I believe we had the house combo next which was a varirty of... More

This kabob house is basic Mediterranean food . Most entrees are meat n rice plates. Clean spot to have a quick meal. Prices average $14 per entree.

This place is perfect for dinner before a concert at the Gallo Arts Center which is what my husband, friend and I did. The food was very good-- they had Greek salad with chicken kabob, I had Caesar with steak kabob-- and the price reasonable. The service was also very good. The only reasons I didn't give the place 5... More

Skewers is best known for the kabobs, which are great. From the ground beef 'lula' kabob, to the filet "barg", as well as the chicken breast (cubed and marinated with lemon and turmeric, I think)... They are all yummy. But my favorite is the salmon - which is strange to me because I am not much of a fish-eater... But... More

Thanks so much for that glowing review! You were right on the cilantro jalapeno hummus! The red on is roasted red pepper. Salmon is one of my favs! Another great entree is the garlic saffron chicken. We appreciate your business and hope to see you soon! More
