Kebabs' stick-based design eliminates the need for traditional flatware at dinner, though it solicits the presence of experimental drummers. Stick it to boring cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of kebabs and more at Original Kabob Factory in Glendale.
Offering more than 30 varieties of all-natural, hormone-free meat, Original Kabob Factory inspires happy sighs among lung-equipped carnivores. Munch matter comes in multitudinous forms, ranging from cute chicken drumettes ($4.49/lb.) to the intimidating beef rib-eye shish kebab combo platter—a pound of succulent meat flanked by seasoned onions, grilled tomatoes and peppers, rice, and lavash (cracker bread) ($15.98). Wrap fans can use their teeth to applaud a generous selection of bundled eats, including the beef sweetbread wrap ($3.99), the lamb shish kebab wrap ($5.99), and the chicken-thigh wrap drenched in house Aaahhh Yyyeeeaaa sauce, named after the battle cry of Louise May Alcott ($4.98). A sizable selection of sides and salads is also available.
Those looking to grill and gnash within the comforts of their own homes or commandeered schooners can take advantage of Original Kabob Factory’s raw offerings. Each meat is available by the pound and makes an ideal alternative to frozen meals or canned snakes.
Original Kabob Factory
Staffers at Original Kabob Factory marinate grain-fed, hormone-free meats according to recipes passed on from a famed Armenian butcher. The resulting menu contains more than 30 chicken, pork, or beef kabobs and wraps, each of which cooks can embellish with whimsically named signature sauces such as "Swag-Delish," "Aaahhh Yyyeeeaaa," and "Drop it Like it's Hot." In the modern but casual dining room, diners lounge at polished-steel tables beneath bold pop-art prints. Patrons can also opt to take home raw bulk meats for backyard grilling or rewarding the dog for learning to file taxes.
