“Secret jewel in College Station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Like most A&M parents, we frequent all the typical chain restaurants in College Station -- Fish Daddy's, BJ's, Cheddar's, Texas Roadhouse, etc. -- to get our fill of American-style food. This past weekend, we were thrilled to discover a wonderful alternative that offers delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Shiraz Shish Kabob, located just a block away from the intersection of Texas and George Bush across from Whataburger, features great beef, chicken, and lamb shish kabobs that are both juicy and tender. Our daughter dined on beef gyros and also enjoyed her meal. The meals are accompanied by naan-like bread and a fragrant rice that can be topped upon request with Persian barberries, which are similar to dried cranberries. We also enjoyed an appetizer of Baba Gannouj for just $2. The atmosphere is not fancy; meals are served on disposable plates, and you order at the counter and pick up your food when they call your number. However, the reasonable prices, friendly service, and quality of cuisine more than make up for the simple surroundings. Best of all, on an incredibly busy Parent's Weekend, there were still a couple of available tables when we arrived for dinner at 6 p.m. We will definitely be back!
