Great food and service. Always order half rice and half vegetables so I get more veggies. Everything we have ordered has been delicious. We have had parties in their banquet room including our 60th wedding anniversary celebration.

Waitress never returned after bringing the food. Not once. I finally had to go up front to request check. She had overcharged me. I requested a correction to the bill and she refused. Very rude.

Description
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!
