We decided to start a kebab restaurant, using the authentic Afghan recipes developed by our cousin, Mahmoud Mahdjoub, who had been a journalist in Afghanistan. Our first location was 300-square-foot site in the food court in Springfield Mall. It was very hard to keep up with the demand with such limited space, so we opened up a second location in the main food court. Beginning in busy food courts in local malls, we quickly grew to 14 locations. Eventually, we expanded to include stand-alone restaurants. Today, Grill Kabob is one of the largest kebab chains in the United States.
It's time to take your taste buds on a trip! Grill Kabob invites you to experience the exotic flavors of Afghanistan - from our succulently marinated kebabs to our lamb and chicken dishes which are absolutely delicious, our homemade naan bread is baked fresh daily in a tandoor oven – just like the locals enjoy! Taste tradition with an added twist at this family owned business.
Grill Kabob offers traditional Afghan food with a unique twist. We have a delicious variety of made-to-order kebabs and other authentic specialties. Our kebabs are marinated and grilled to perfection. We have generous portions, unbeatable prices, and our fresh-from-the-tandoor naan bread is the best!
This place is definitely my favorite spot to eat due to the fact that they serve very delicious food and good portions that fill you up with a smile! I'm so glad it’s so close to where I live I can just walk there. If you like Middle Eastern food you should definitely give this place a try. I promise you won’t regret it.
There are many Kabob places in Herndon and Reston area but non compare to this place. I am a customer since 2018 and was never let down. The kabobs are very fresh and tasty. The meat quality is really good compared to other places. Overall, the food portions are really good. I especially love lamb chops and chicken Kobida. Honestly, all Kabobs are just so good. I order on combo meal and eat it in two days because the portions are big. Very reasonable price for great quality and tasty meal. My American friend tried it once and she really liked it too.
My wife and I ate lunch here this week. Good food, large enough portions that we were able to have enough for another meal a day or two days after. She had the chicken kabob and I had the falafel plate. I was surprised to see the fried chickpeas as pancakes rather than small balls. We'd return for another meal.
