Made reservations a month in advance, there was no wait time to get seated for our reservation. Had seats for a Gallo show and the staff were very conscientious of our time. Waitress was fun and very friendly. Manger came out to see how we were doing. The Pink Panther Cocktail is a must try. Appetizer was the Hummus Trio... More

The delicious dishes truly were made more enjoyable thanks to a particularly pleasant and well informed young lady- E.O.T. Our experience with middle eastern cuisine is fairly limited, but each item was explained in depth as if this young lady had no other tables to tend to and she certainly did. Warm, thin flatbread was served and Ms. E. mentioned... More

We stopped in to try their Mediterranean food and were not disappointed. I had the tiger prawns kabob very good. We also tried the sirlon kabobs they were very good. Would go back. The service was excellent.

We never expected our favorite restaurant, Skewers to be packed on a Thursday night! Evidently, others have discovered how delicious their food is (every time!) -- Even though, our waitress was super busy and had several large tables, she still returned frequently to assure us we were not forgotten and she got to us as quickly as she could. We... More

We toured around western USA in January. We stayed in Modesto for 1 night and had no idea where to eat. We stumbled onto this restaurant near our hotel and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was billed as Mediterranean cuisine but it was really middle eastern. First of all, the service was very good, our server explained the menu well... More

We frequent this restaurant often because it consistently provides high quality food and if you ask for Rob, you'll always get excellent service. I'm hooked on their Garlic Saffron Chicken but really, everything else I've tried there has been delicious as well. Everyone in our party said that their meals were perfect.

I went here with a co-worker for a healthy dinner. I had the garlic chicken kebob (delicious) while she asked if she could have the Greek salad with salmon (the menu only noted it would come with chicken). The waitress gladly substituted the salmon for the chicken, at no extra charge. The food came promptly, was nicely hot, and very... More

We have been to Skewers many times, whether it be dining in or take out. The food is delicious. There is something for everyone, and an extensive menu from which to choose. Many different kabobs -- lamb, sirloin, chicken, filet, shrimp, salmon and more. If you can't decide, there are combo plates to make you happy. Great appetizers -- hummus,... More

Very good meditteranean food in a white table cloth restaurant. We enjoyed lunch with skewered shrimp over Greek salad, an assortment of dips with warm pita bread. The waitress was friendly and kept bring the warm pita without us having to request it.
