The food was fresh and flavorful. The best lamb I have ever had! Service was gracious. My favorite downtown restaurant!

We were hyped! I heard and read about Skewers restaurant and had to see it for myself. It is across from the bus station on 9th, so it's easy to get to with plenty of parking. Nice atmosphere and it smelled great inside. The food was fresh and healthy. They give you plenty to eat so plan on another meal... More

Been here twice. Good food. I like the "rack of lamb" the most. $19 for a very large portion probably enough for 2 to share. Taste great also. Atmosphere is nice. Quiet but not too quiet. Service is also good. I also enjoy the bellydancing performance. Went there with my wife and 2 young kids of 4 and 2 and... More

Some downtown Modesto restaurants aren't always clean and well-kept, but this place was refreshingly clean. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was well-prepared and season. The filet with the surf and turf kabobs was VERY tender. We were thinking that the only thing lacking was a belly dancer... Then we turned around and there she was! It was... More

I normally avoid going anywhere downtown but this place has quickly become a family favorite. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is pleasant. Wonderful staff and service.

I've only gone here twice, so I may not be the best reviewer on this place, however both times were not all that great. My wife got a chicken meal of some sort and the chicken was very dry and unappealing. My meal was a bit cold and a kind of tasteless. I won't go back and I wouldn't recommend... More

The food was awesome and the service was great! I had the filet and it practically melted in my mouth! My husband had the chicken and it was great too.

We tried Skewers out at the recommendation of family, and really enjoyed it. I ordered the chicken and rice with barberries - it was delicious and the chicken was cooked just right. I also had steak, which was seasoned well and cooked very well. The outside of the buildings a bit off putting, but the inside is nice and welcoming.... More
