Ali Baba Shish Kabob opened in April of 2015. It is a Middle Eastern restaurant that specializes in serving Iraqi style food. The restaurant is family owned and operated and their goal is to bring fresh, authentic Iraqi food to the community. Everything at Ali Baba Shish Kabob is made from scratch using healthy and pure ingredients. The Iraqi Famous Kabob is one of their most popular items off the menu. It comes with ground beef and lamb mixed with spices, parsley, and onions. The difference between American kabobs and Iraqi kabobs is that Iraqi kabobs are kafta. This means the meat is ground up and then stuck on a skewer instead of just cutting up chunks of meat and sliding them on a skewer. Other popular dishes include the Chicken Tikka and Chicken Schwarma Sandwich. Every dish is prepared and cooked fresh to order. The meat is all halal and the vegetables are fresh from local sources. Ali Baba Shish Kabob is the only Iraqi style restaurant in the city and they take pride in knowing theyíre introducing the community to a new cuisine. They will be opening their new patio this summer that will allow guests to enjoy their meal in the warm summer air. Next time youíre in the area give Ali Baba Shish Kabob a try because you surely wonít be disappointed!
