I have been to Skewers several times and found the staff accommodating, the food good, and the service very good. Parking is best nearby in the parking structure on the same block a short walk away, or a second one slightly farther.

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!
