We stayed in Modesto after going to Yellowstone national park. My husband and I found this place on open table and we were amazed. I had their special which was a shrimp and chicken kebob dish with a tangy sauce served with basmati rice. All their skewers are sold separately, but have a lot of meat/veggies packed on the skewer. Also, all skewers are served with the rice. After reviewing the menu, it was difficult to decide between all the options because all the marinades sounded so good! If I ever make it to this part of California again, this will definitely be on my list of stops. And the service was EXCELLENT!
First time here and it was a great experience. Our waiter was very helpful offering food suggestions and attentive to our needs during the meal. I would definitely come back again before a concert at Gallo Center.
The food at Skewer's is always consistent and healthy and delicious. We had some special requests and questions of the waitress, and she was outstanding in every way. We go there very frequently and w8ll continue to do so.
Great food, great value. The service is normally stellar, but wasn't quite as good this time, but still good. They didn't have the dancer, which I appreciated, as I'm not a fan of the dancing. We go here regularly and usually have a great time.
Was first time here.. LOVED it!! My new favorite spot! Went here in a date with my hubby we both really enjoyed the food so much and the staff was so nice and friendly. There was even belly dancers at one point which was a fun surprise! Definitely going back.!!!
