The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel, shish kabobs, and merlambs growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean fare at Skewers Kabob House on J Street.

Skewers Kabob House fires up authentic Mediterranean flavors, lanced with kebab skewers and washed down with a full bar of eclectic spirits. Limber chomping muscles for a marathon meal with starters such as dolma ($7), which binds ground beef, garlic, and fresh herbs in swaddling grape leaf robes, or eggplant dip ($6), which drizzles caramelized yogurt over fresh sautéed eggplant and a seasoning of caramelized onions and mint, propelling tongues into spontaneously ringing out in operatic aria. Skewers' kebab specialties boast meats marinated for a minimum of two Earth rotations before being roasted over an open flame. Try the saffron chicken kebab ($14), which dresses kebab skewers with tender pieces of chicken topped with lemon zest and saffron, and soaked in a secret recipe marinade developed accidentally during a government lab's failed attempt at bottling the essence of the film Casablanca. The shish and lula ($17), one of nine combination plates, pits one skewer of ground beef against a kebab of marinated Angus sirloin ($17). The menu also features a host of wines that, when paired correctly, help imbibers to avoid the undesirable effects of combining a robust red wine with delicate chicken dishes or washing down a lamb dish with a glass of toner.

Skewers Kabob House

As the vibrant, swirling skirts of belly dancers entrance patrons' eyes, Skewers' chefs slice up lamb, filet mignon, chicken, and salmon for the restaurant’s namesake kebabs. To sate carnivorous cravings, their flavorful meats—which are marinated for 48 to 72 hours in tangy Mediterranean spices and oils—are roasted over the open flame of a stove or a snoring baby dragon. Bartenders craft potent martinis and pour international wines that complement both the punchy flavors of the kebabs and the plumes of sweet, aromatic smoke that dance through the hookah garden. On select nights, the kebab house brims with the catchy beats of live jazz bands, late-night DJs, and brave karaoke performers, and belly dancers take center stage with their sensuous dance moves on Saturday evenings.

Food & Service was wonderful as always. This is my 6th time @Skewers. I think it is a great restaurant. When ever I have out of town people I take them there.
