The service here was impeccable. Great food that is fresh and authentic. All home cooked and not processed or previously frozen.

So very convenient to my hotel, it was almost too good to be true. Great steak and chicken skewers, amazing rice and veggies and these little funky tortilla things that were oh so addicting. I was greeted pleasantly, seated quickly and the service never took a downhill turn. Just what I needed at the end of a so-so day.

This is one of the best places to get shish kabob in Modesto. You can get lula, chicken, beef, lamb or seafood items on a kabob; grilled to perfection and well-seasoned. You'll get a large plate of rice and grilled vegetables. The vegetables have increased in portion from years past and I think it was a great move to add... More

Went to Skewers several times during my stay in Modesto. Food was great and service even better! After the restaurant closes the bar stays open and things were sure hopping there! lol! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Although it's been awhile since I was here, it's still a great place to eat. We had a party here and the staff couldn't have been better. They are the easiest to work with and will make your visit a very pleasant one. Parking is not the best during the week, however. The city has meters (that in some cases,... More

I've reviewed Skewer's several times before but I can't say enough about the excellent food and service (especially if you ask for Rob). Some places are 'hit and miss' but this one is always a hit! I've noticed the last few times we've gone there, that it is getting so popular that the noise level is a bit more than... More

My co worker and I ate here while travelling for business. He's never had Persian food nor kebabs and I'm a big fan. We found this listing on Trip Advisor, never been to Modesto before and I'm so glad we went. They give you a nice, BIG pour of wine and hot Persian flat bread to start. Our waitress was... More

Tried this restaurant based on reviews and if you enjoy good quality ingredients, well sized portions, plainly cooked and simply served by friendly staff in pleasant surroundings you will enjoy a meal here. We shared dolmas which were very nice as an appetizer, I had lamb and my husband shish kebab. Both pleasant, mild tasting grilled meats with rice and... More

We entertained family recently at Skewer's and had a very good time. Drinks are reasonably priced. Service was good, if a bit harried due to the crowd. Kabobs were varied and delicious. Prices were very reasonable given the quality of the food. Very much worth a visit.
