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!

We showed up on Friday night expecting to ask for Matt and he was on vacation...okay, now what? The hostess says that we... read 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.

Love this place. Great food and belly dancing on Saturday nights. Highly recommended for couples and smaller families. More on the elegant dining side.

This is a real must visit restaurant, if you are in or anywheres near Modesto. It is middle eastern, and very authentic. First very nice place, plenty parking and easy to find, a cross from train station. We had a group of seven so I did make reservations. Our waitress, Sandy, was very knowledgable and efficient. She also made sure... More

The food is always excellent and consistently prepared. We were sad that our favorite waiter, Rob was no longer working there but Matt did a fantastic job and we'll probably ask for him next time. We get very good service and food which is why we always return.

We ate at Skewers for the first time last week. We ordered the chicken and ground beef and the steak skewers with the rice and roasted vegetables. Also had the red pepper hummus with their Mediterranean bread as an appetizer. There was ample food and we had to have a take home box. Their bar area has a nice set... More

Really no reason to go anywhere else for Mediterranean food. Amazing this wonderful gem is in Modesto on 9 Thx street! The best cabbage films anywhere and the lamb falls off the bone. Great food and great service. Try the pomegranate martini, you won't be disappointed.
