Kebobs, while generally known as an essential part of American backyard barbecues, are quite universal. There are Greek, Persian, Afghan and Lebanese takes on the seasoned meat-on-a-stick dish, to name a few cuisines the specialize in meat on a stick. Kebobs are not only popular and easy to eat, but they are often affordably priced and come with an array of side dishes such as seasoned rice or fresh pita bread. Legend has it that the kebob was invented by warriors in the Middle East who used their swords to grill meat over open fires. Now, variations on this skewered meat can be found all over the Las Vegas valley. Check out our list for the best nine places to eat kebobs in Las Vegas.
