The food there in general is good, but the chicken shawarma and shesh tawouk is my favorite. Prices are fare

Last year we stopped in for a quick bite to eat; not knowing what to expect. The food is amazing. We have easily been a dozen times since then. Service is great. Great spot for a quick meal. Everything is delicious.

Visited Shish Kebab express recently to grab a quick bite to eat for lunch
Been here a few times and the gentleman serving me ( I think he's the owner ) is always very friendly and accommodating.

Can't beat the prices ($5 for a filling sandwich and $1 each for very tasty samosas ) and You certain I get fresh well made and tasty food.

I haven't tried all the menu items yet but can imagine based on what I have tried ( Chicken Tikka sandwich, shawarma sandwich and samosas ...make sure you get them on the iraqi bread ) I don't think anyone would be disappointed.

They do have tables to sit and eat but it's definitely a "cafe" atmosphere and probably not somewhere you would want to bring a date.

If you like Mediterranean food then you have to check it out.

people around this area (buffalo) mustn't had middle eastern food before. The restaurant looks a bit shabby. it lacks cleaning for sure. the falafel was raw from inside. very green. i can put it among the worst falafel i have eaten. only 2 pieces in the whole sandwich!!!?
the gralic is NOTHING related to garlic. never in my life seen a garlic like that. its more of yogurt. at first i thought it was tahini sauce. the rice was ok. Chicken tekka was good. samoon bread was good. so i guess 1 star for bread and one for chicken?!!
this place could definitely be better if the clean it up a little more. the person cooking was sweating like crazy behind the grill and wearing causal cloth, wiping his sweat with his t-shirt. definitely needs some "safe food handling" training.
definitely will not be back.

Chip says he tried this place based on several recommendations from coworkers, so he went. The exterior doesnt look like much, inside is basic but looks to be a local cultural hangout, adding to its legitimacy.
Menu is varied. Had the chicken shawarma sandwich and housemade hummus. Just that was almost too much food. Portions are great, enough for two.
The chicken was spiced perfectly and the hummus was out of this world served with authentic and fresh out of the oven middle eastern bread (not pita).
Definitely lived up to the claims and we look forward to going back together. A very friendly and quality place for having the word "express" in their title. This is not a cheezy fast food joint.
