Shish is one of those places where you can sit, have a tasty nutritious meal, and get your sanity back again.

Shish has excellent food for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night snack! I love their carrot cake, but all of their cakes are delicious!

Different than the usual breakfast with great flavors from the Mediterranean. You can get your eggs over easy or your pancakes, but give something like a chaksuka, with roasted peppers, tomatoes and other goodies prepared with your eggs in an iron skillet. Have to come...More

Four of us ordered very different dishes off the menu and we all left Shish completely sated. Although busy, our order arrived quickly. Large portions, nicely presented and all tasted very, very good (the tabouli could use a bit more lemon juice for my taste)....More

We've been here before and will go back, I am sure. They have tasty, interesting wraps, gyros and sandwiches for very reasonable prices. The shawarma is flavorful and reliably good. This restaurant is a nice place for a predictably satisfying meal.

How is Shish on a mild winter afternoon? Crowded, noisy, drafty, messy, and understaffed. Every time someone comes in, you'll feel the draft. My lentil soup was ice cold and watery—apparently with the rush the cook forgot to heat it. Falafel was good and cheap....More

I stopped by here because a place nearby I wanted to eat at was sit down, so I walked out and found this place. My ancestry is Greek so always looking for great Mediterranean food. Even better yet they focus on vegan, GF, etc., plus...More
