Shish Kabob Grill – Yelp Review of the Week

Shish Kabob Grill is located at 1503 Grant St., Denver, CO 80203. When you approach Shish Kabob Grill on the corner of Grant and Colfax – and you should if you want really good food at a reasonable price – remember your mother’s admonition: Don’t judge a book by its cover. Don’t be put off by the unpretentious décor or the lights that could stand to be a little dimmer. Look at the menu instead.

With 170+ reviews on Yelp, here were some of the most helpful:

Dan G. from Denver, CO says: ” This place has the most creamiest hummus on the planet! when I asked how they do it the young man behind the counter said, “the secret ingredient is love.” He then looked fondly at the chef, his mother.  What a great family! Both with food and the care of service they provide their customer! I have been coming to this place since I first moved to Denver back in 2006 and love it love it love it!  Also, try the Gyro sandwich or plate, big chunks of meat!”

Samantha L. from Denver, CO says: “Good solid light weeknight dinner option.  The hummus is delicious, and the meat is tender and seasoned well.  The salad options have lots of fresh vegetables and ingredients.”

Lindsey M. from Denver, CO says: “I’ve been here a few times and everytime it just gets better. I am in love with their lentil soup…put a little Sriracha sauce in there, and BOOM! It is just perfect. I wish I could steal the recipe! But, the atmosphere, itself, is great. Dim lighting, relaxing music…really makes this place almost “intimate”. The boys that work there are always so calm and kind. I always recommend this place to anyone looking for a good falafel. They really know how to do it.”
