We go to Skewer's frequently. Their food choice is varied, with something for everyone. We split the Mediterranean sampler and add chicken or shrimp Ceasar salads. Their skewers are all excellent as well, as is their fine wine selection. Highly recommend!

Nice place for dinner, if you're not in a hurry. Good food. They seem to fill up fast. Might want to go early.

One of my favorite places to eat. The lamb is amazing but you can't go wrong with any of their selections. Not as elegant as other downtown eateries but the food ranks among the best and the pricing is very reasonable.

Had a wonderful time at Skewers. The food is awesome, the help very pleasant. I think we've tried about everything on the menu. The fillet is the bomb the prawns exceptional. A must place to dine in Modesto California.

Wow! A new discovery! Amazing food and great atmosphere. We didn't know what to get and the family combo was recommended. We definitely did not leave hungry. So glad we had this. I'll be back here again 😊

I always have the Shrimp and Basmati rice with garlic butter! Chicken and vegetables are great also.Yummy!! We have an Easter tradition to order a half pan of Basmati rice and the Garlic Butter to have as a side. Even though we do traditional ham, mashed potatoes, etc.

The menu is full of kabobs, from chicken and steak to ground beef and lamb. All are great tasting, and the plates are more than adequate for even a huge appetite. The rice is light and fluffy and tasty. The hummus is a favorite, and you have a choice of several varieties. I am partial to the tomato and cucumber... More

Over the years have had several meal, most recent 2014, and always wonderful Basmati rice, and great k-bobs (chicken, beef or lamb). Tasty salads as well. Service is attentive, not overbearing.

Knowing that I'm a vegetarian, my friends arranged for this "thank-you" dinner as a surprise destination. Wow! What a wonderful choice!!! Great food for both carnivores and herbivores !!! Outstanding service! So good to see families, some with 4 generations present, all having a fun time. Happy 13th anniversary to Skewers!!!

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!
