Ariana Grill Kabob House

The Turkish words shish kabob literally mean “skewer” and “roast meat.” You can’t get much simpler than that, but, there’s hardly anything simple about readers’ love of kebobs. In fact, it’s so complex that we added this entirely new category this year. Sticks Kebob Shop, with its customizable platter, sandwich, and salad menu, takes first place, while Ariana comes in second. The West Main Street restaurant specializes in authentic Afghan cuisine—plus, it delivers!
