Have You had Big Daddy's Tommy Salad Yet?
Or Our Fabulous Lamb Chops?
Welcome to the best Greek food this
evening, but with daily specials.
Biggest sellers are the chicken
shawarma and chicken kabob ...
Also the homemade falafel.
Vegetarian entrees go over in
a big way ... as do the half orders
Service, too, is a most impor-
tant facet of this fine little Middle
Eastern restaurant ... Seating
may only be for 43 at tables, but
there are always around eight
employees to make sure your or-
der is taken promptly and pre-
The menu is a combination of
Lebanese, Chaldean and some
Entrees are exceptionally good
... Chicken kabob for example, is
very tender and served with deli-
cious sides of white bean sauce to
spoon on and a garlic sauce for
dipping the meat.
Few places make turshey (pick-
les, turnips, baby carrots, cab-
bage, peppers, banana peppers,
jalspeno, dry Persian garlic) quite
like Flaming Kabob ... The beau-
tiful aroma itself is exceedingly
It is open Mondays through
Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. ...
Closed on Sundays.
Moe and Gloria work side by
side ... a hard-working couple ...
The mango cocktail
is a best seller.
She does whatever is needed:
hostess, cashier, waitress, cook,
The ambiance has more of a
cafe look ... with artifacts like sef-
fertabs from Baghdad that are
used in the Middle East ... They
come apart in various sections for
soup, entree, etc. ... and then are
put back together as one carrying
Also a large tray brought to
America from Baghdad ... used
for lamb and rice when special
guests come, or on special occa-
sions ... There are dolls, too, and
items from Jerusalem.
Did I tell you that Flaming
Kabob makes its own pickles? ...
Its own yogurt, too? ... And the
tasty, vegetarian grape leaves
may not have meat in them; but
it is hard to tell the difference.
All natural ingredients and
fresh garlic are used in the mar-
inating goodness at Flaming
If you've seen and tasted all the
pickles that are on the market,
Moe has a secret ... He's coming
out with a new pickle ... Being a
lover of food dabbling, Moe enjoys
making his own conglomerations
... and it's nothing for regular cus-
tomers to ask, "What's new today,
The days of yesteryear when
he worked without pay because
Moe couldn't speak English are a
dream now, but one in which the
owner of that market did him a
big favor ... So what if he couldn't
even have a lunch break ... and
ate apple pie (his favorite) every
day for lunch.
Moe learned a trade that one
day would be very valuable to him
... The experience gotten as a
butcher is one he can never buy.
Yes, the original Kabob Grill
was good, deserving of the merits
it received ... But Flaming Kabob
IT'S FOOD AND fun time
