With so few decent and comfortable “go to” places to eat in Modesto, Skewers endures. They have a menu that has something for everyone’s taste and a good bar. We had the Lamb Shanks and Sabzee Stew. Both dishes were fresh and very tasty. The service is friendly and efficient. It’s not a superstar establishment, but it does what it... More

I have eaten with family and friends at Skewers Restaurant for the past three years and been treated to excellent service and an amazing cuisine. Skewers has its famed dishes like garlic saffron chicken, imported basmati rice and sirloin steak that has been marinated for 72 hours before it is served. The restaurants ambiance is clean and refreshing. We have... More

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.

We walked over from our hotel and ordered the Mediterranean Sampler (starter) and the Chef's Combo (entree) with a bottle of wine. It was varied, all delicious, and plenty of leftovers for the next day's lunch. Service was attentive and cheerful. Very clean. Just a fun not-run-of-the-mill cookie cutter restaurant. Seemed filled with locals celebrating birthdays and friendships. Would return... More

We have dined at Skewers since they opened. Love the main dishes especially the lemon chicken and salmon. My husband loves the lamb chops. The appetizers are also very good. The variety tray is perfect to get a taste of many dishes in one. We also cater from them for all our occasions. What differentiates them is the consistency of... More

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!
