The gyro plate at Kabob House in Temecula is both filling and tasty.

I was out running errands on a recent Wednesday when I happened upon a brand-new Mediterranean restaurant on Temecula Parkway I had heard lots about: Kabob House.

There have been numerous posts about this dining option on Facebook community groups, with people raving about the tastiness of various dishes, the large portions and the excellent customer service. I decided I would find out what all the fuss was about.

It turns out Kabob House is as good as all the reviews say it is.

I walked up to the front counter of the fairly casual restaurant after perusing a menu thick with eastern Mediterranean food items including hummus, falafel, tabouleh, grape leaves, baba ganoush and kabobs.

The restaurant offers plates that range in price between $10.99 and $16.99 depending on what you're ordering. Those plates come with your choice of two sides between salad, rice, fries or hummus.

I opted for the gyros plate ($11.99), which consisted of gyro meat stacked over slices of fresh and fluffy pita bread topped with tomatoes, onions and spices and a garlicky tzatziki sauce. For my sides I picked fries and hummus.

My very large plate of food came out quickly after I ordered it and I dug in.

The meat was moist and flavorful, the onions crisp and the tomatoes firm. I took the slices of pita bread, the meat, the vegetables and a little bit of the tzatziki sauce and made small gyro wraps out of them.

When I wasn't using the pita bread for my meat, I was dipping it in my side of hummus which was smooth, silky and full of earthy chickpea flavor.

The french fries, crisp and hot, served as a great conduit for both the hummus and the tzatziki sauce when I ran out of pita bread.

The interior of the restaurant feels open and modern, not stuffy. Light filters in through large windows that cover the restaurant's facade. There are a few photos of outdoors scenes hanging on the walls, which are painted a glossy white.

I was within earshot of the two employees working behind the counter. I noticed how they maintained a cheery demeanor that never seemed to wane as multiple guests came in.

I took stock of my empty plate and wondered whether I could gobble up a dessert item such as baklava. A couple nearby seemed to be enjoying theirs.

After a little more consideration, I thought it best to stop with the gyro plate. I was stuffed, happy and ready to take on the rest of my errands.

Kabob House is located at 31093 Temecula Parkway, Suite D1, in Temecula. For more information, visit their website at
