Large portions and flavorful. The tabbouleh was awesome. Good, tender meat and the service is quick. Makes an excellent take out to go back to your hotel and eat.

This place may be small (no indoor seating, but some limited outdoor seating in a food court type of area is available) but they provide some outstanding fast-food kabobs and some excellent sides. I particularly love their beef kabobs, flatbread, rice, Greek salad and pasta. The baklava was very good as well. I liked the food so much I went... More

Had a 2 kabob lunch platter to go that I ate at my nearby hotel. The chicken was a bit charred and the rice uninteresting. I was also disappointed that there was no tziki included with the chicken - learned the hard way that you have to ask for it here. It's ok, a convenient lunch that can be fairly... More

This place is a skip and a hop right next to the Marriott Hotel and the Sheraton Hotel as well as the Convention Center. Come here for a quick bite!

Always eat lunch at Shish Kabob when I am at downtown Raleigh at my conference. Much better than the free food at the convention center. Love the lamb kabobs and the sides are flavorful. Fast service and friendly staff. Enjoy sitting outside. Would be nice if they had a covered area and a wind block.

Grabbed a quick bite here one evening -- lots of food (too much for me really) at good prices. Buy it inside and take it outside to the plaza to eat.

I arrived in Raleigh after a day of travel during which I did not have time to eat. I stopped at the Shish Kebob and got a falafel. The price was right, and I was able to sit outdoors in the plaza, which was a plus.

The owner is rude and the menu indicates more than one kabob but they only give you one kabob... not kabobs!

If you're staying at the Marriot, it's late and you don't want to venture very far, this is a good place to go. It's greek food and it's pretty good. I have had better but, for the price and location, it wasn't that bad.

We've eaten Lebanese food all over the world, but Shish Kabob remains one of our favorites, simply because the food really is Lebanese food. We can get the kind of pickles we like, they'll put French fries in our sandwiches, and the hommous isn't ruined by extra ingredients. It's value priced, too - perfect place for a fast meal or...
