Kabob House

4940 Christy Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63116 | St. Louis - South City | 314-832-2977

Location Description:

A straightforward restaurant -- a single room, cash only -- that serves excellent Middle-Eastern food. As you might expect from the name, the kebabs here are especially good, with a deep char-grilled flavor. Gyros are good, too, thanks to a tasty tzatziki sauce, and falafel is pretty much perfect, each chickpea fritter as fat as a baseball, with a crisp exterior and a soft inside. The tahini sauce is delicious -- and spicy. Those who have been seeking lamb liver or lamb heart will find it here
