The service was good and the food was good but this restaurant makes the same mistake that so many doomed establishments make. They have a lot of fixed costs that they cannot easily reduce (rent and labor) but then they make the critical mistake of cutting their food costs too drastically. Basically, there are some food items that are so... More

The service was not good. I expected so much (had a gyro) and it was so small / very disappointed. Then they got my order order....so stingy with the cucumber sauce. They charge like $1.00 for a tiny cucumber sauce. I couldn't believe it!

in the mood for greek, found this on my airline dining site. Was empty...but went in anyway. The food was outstanding....chicken charred nicely, the rice nice and light, the salad with a bit different dressing. I didn't like the ice tea flavor but they said it's persian. The patio was nice - and the owner very friendly. I'll go back.... More

The food here is always fresh and delicious. We had moved out of the area for 3 years but when we returned today the owner still remembered us, remembered our favorites and our food allergies. The servers are polite and they all work together. I love the lamb, it is so tender it melts in your mouth. You can select... More

My husband and son have visited this restaurant several times and love it. Everything is very fresh, authentic, and delicious. I recently visited and loved mine as well. You can not go wrong with anything from this restaurant. Owners are wonderful as well!

This place is worth the drive from anywhere in the area. Reasonably priced, tasty food and friendly service. I am partial to the gyros and fries, but you can't go wrong on other dishes.

We have been going to Kabob International for several years. The owners are always readily available if not hosting our table. They have always been so kind and welcoming, just like family! The food is all homemade and ridiculously delicious. She makes the best tzaziki I have ever had, and the gyro itself is worth a drive across town for.... More

I have been eating here since they opened the doors. It was my first experience with Persian food. It was love at first taste! I have tried almost everything on the menu and all are great. Since trying Kabob International I have tried every other place in town in this price range, but they do not measure up.
