Food and ambience

Middle Eastern, Persian, Mediterranean, Vegetarian Friendly, Vegan Options
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

Very nice restaurant. Owners were very accommodating, despite being booked. The waitress Anastasia took really good care of us. Very generous portions and incredible quality of ingredients. We highly recommend this place to all tourists and locals!

Very good! Had the lamb lollipops, shrimp skewers, and the Joojeh Kabob (marinated chicken with lemon and saffron) all of this with their awesome hummus and dolmas. I couldn't stop eating. I live about an hour away, so I ordered extra, so I could take...home yummy leftovers! I've been here three times and doesn't disappoint. I'm already planing my next trip.More

Skewers has moved to the old Saint Stan's building. They are very popular there too. My daughter and I went there for her birthday. We were so catered to. Even though the server's area was upstairs, she took the time to seat us outside and...make sure we had everything we needed constantly. The service, needless to say, was perfect. I tell all of my friends to go there. I can't see anyone not enjoying it.More

Perfect lunch with yummy leftovers. I ordered the Surf & Turf combo which comes with one skewer of filet mignon & four large tiger prawns. For my sides I opted for all grilled veggies. The garlic butter and Greek sauce was superb! Super friendly staff...and great cocktails. Looking forward to visiting again.More

Stayed at the Doubletree and decided to walk across the street for dinner. Appetizers and main course were both excellent. Reasonable prices!

Second visit to Skewers--the first in the new location. The food is well-prepared and the presentation is very good. We were a large group and the service was very good. The portions were great but the prices were a bit on the high side. Parking...for the establishment was very limited and we had to pay to park at the city garage across the street with no validation.More

The food is super solid- try any of the skewers. The food merits a 5. The knock down is due to the bar not being able to make a daiquiri- not the frozen stuff- a simple classic rum cocktail. They had no idea where to...start. Yikes.More
