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!!!

While the entrees are good (average) two of out party ordered creme brulees and both ended up sick within hours. The service was very good, but the kitchen took nearly 45 minutes to deliver the creme brulees to our server so they took a long time to get to us... they could have been properly cooked in the time we...

brad m, General Manager at Skewers, responded to this review

Thanks for your good review on our service, but I am concerned with the creme brulee... This seems extremely out of character! 45 minutes is a long time to wait for dessert after you have finished your meal. Can you let me know when you came in? I would like to research this further. Again, thank you for taking the... More

Not at the top of my Modesto list, though...way too much salad, could have used more meat on the skewer instead...

Thanks for your input Terry! You can increase your meat by upgrading to a full skewer, just let your server know. Hope to see you soon :) More

Service was friendly and efficient. The room was noisy, I had difficulty at times understanding my friend from across the table. He had chicken, I had the appetizer platter, all vegetarian except for the dolmas. It included hummus, tzatziki, a salad, and an eggplant dish. Everything was well made, my only complaint was the lavash bread, which didn't seem as... More

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!
