We reserved a table prior to going to the Gallo Center for rhe Arts to see a show. We weren't sure what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. The wait staff was very friendly, the service was excellent, and the food was plentiful and delicious. Very enjoyable, woukd go again.

This place is always noisy during peak hours, but the food is worth it. The parking lot is small, but there is parking right next door . There is a party room for larger groups.

First timer. We waited 40 minutes for our salad. My 86 year old mothers birthday, or I would have left. Manager found out the issue, and profusely apologized. He said there was no excuse for that. Service picked up after that. Food was very good. We will give them another chance. Enjoyed the food.

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.

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.

Thank Jazzed51

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!
