    Stopped by the new Ashburn Kabob, in the Truro Parish shopping center (near Sunoco and Dunkin Donuts). They are in the space formerly occupied by Happy Chopsticks.

    We tried a wrap and the tikka kabob entree. There was a decent wait for our take-out order, which I have no problem with if the food is good. My son was thrown off by the photo on their menu, which led him to believe he'd be getting more than one skewer of meat. We both gave it 3 stars (out of 5)...maybe still working out the kinks since they haven't been open very long. Hope they are able to survive in that location, they have some decent competition nearby.

    Did you get a sense if the food was oriented toward a particular influence? I mean was it more just generic "middle eastern" or perhaps Afghan or Lebanese etc.? Would be nice if there was something of an authentic influence.

    Not so much. They have burgers, too :)

    Also stopped in for lunch last week. Ordered the Chicken Kebob which came with rice, salad and naan bread. The kebob and rice were tasty. The salad was a decent size but nothing special. The naan was not as good as other places I have been. The wait for food was a bit slow but it came out hot. I can see going here for lunch or for carryout, but not for dinner as it is just a basic, sparse sitting area.

    We got takeout here, and I particularly liked that they used romaine for their salad instead of iceberg lettuce. It's a pet peeve of mine, but I was pleasantly surprised that they used better quality greens for their side salad.

    My husband and I tried the Ashburn Kabob last week for lunch. We were the only ones in there and the wait time wasn't long for the food. We got the lunch special Chicken Kabob with salad, rice and bread. Our salads came out and they were very good, fresh romaine lettuce, cucumbers, peppers, tomato and a nice dressing. I liked that it was in a separate bowl and it was plenty! The chicken was very tender and tasty, the rice was very good too. We liked the bread as it isn't your typical naan that you get that turns hard after sitting out. We will be back.

    We were there recently and I must say this is the best kabob place in Ashburn so far! I liked the fact, that the salad was in a separate bowl. Also, the bread is nice and not to too hard. The chicken was so good...nicely cooked, moist, tender and yum!
