House of Kabobs serves succulent skewers of chicken or beef kabobs with aromatic saffron rice. The atmosphere is cozy and unpretentious. Be sure to have a slice of delicious baklava.

Food here is nicely spiced and really one of my favorite places for kebabs. That being said, it can be rather expensive when you start adding on everything you really want w/ your meal, such as a few veggies. They've recently started doing table service...More
