Montrose Wine & Kebabs


Montrose is an adorable little town just north of our home in Glendale.  We love wandering the streets, shopping in the boutiques and most of all, eating in the unique local restaurants.  We’ve never had a fail at a restaurant in Montrose and last night we tried another win!  I have noticed Montrose Wine & Kebabs for awhile.  It sits on the second story of a building and has a beautiful patio overlooking downtown Montrose.  Since last night was such a beautiful night, we decided to check it out!

The restaurant is an Armenian run place with Armenian/Mediterranean decor and food.  One of the owners came over to our table soon after we sat down.  I asked him what his favorite meal is at the restaurant in which he replied with a series of questions for me.  Do I gravitate towards beef or chicken? Do I like whole pieces of meat or ground meats?  He then said, you should order the Beef Shish Kabobs with grilled veggies.  Now, that’s how I like to order my food!  Josh ordered the Chicken Lula Kabob with mini potatoes.  We expressed our concern about gluten in the sauce of the food and the owner said not to worry, we only use fresh seasoning and marinate the meats in onions.

The owner then brought us some radishes, basil leaves, and feta cheese.  It appeared to be a take on the Caprese salad…  I was skeptical about eating raw radishes, but this combination was awesome! Pretty soon our entrees were ready…wow.  Josh and I were both amazed at how flavorful our meals were!  They were beautiful displays of tender meats and seasonal veggies with the perfect blend of spices to not overshadow the entree.

We left Montrose Wine & Kebabs extremely satisfied and determined to return soon.  If you like healthy, flavorful, and affordable Mediterranean food then this is the place for you.

Thanks Montrose Wine & Kebabs for a delightful meal!!
