The Village Kabob is located in Ocean Beach on the corner of Newport and Cable. They offer the typical Greek fare: falafel, moussaka, gyros, kabobs, and sandwiches. While we found the falafels to be good, the majority of the food we’ve eaten there has been under-seasoned. If you want greek and live in ob this place is pretty much the only option. If you want greek and live anywhere else in the community we would suggest trying a different restaurant.
A: so, this was our second time eating at the village kabob. the first time, over a year ago, we didn’t really like it, but this time it was pretty tasty. i think it’s definitely hit or miss with this place.
T: I think they might have a tendency to under-salt things. That was my main complaint both times.
A: i agree. the first time we ate there i remember thinking it was way under-seasoned. this time, though, i thought my falafels were really tasty. some of the better falafels i’ve had actually. great flavor, nice texture. the accompanying salad was a whole other story. the dressing tasted like they had just poured straight vinegar on to it! i love vinegar and all but enough is enough!
T: My gyros sandwich was pretty tasty… a tad under-salted, but tasty anyway. I really liked the bite of falafel sandwich that I had. Overall it was far better than our first experience. I’d give it a 2.8/5 for our first visit, and 3.8/5 for our second visit, for an average of 3.3/5. If you’re wanting greek food and you’re walking around OB, it’s a decent place to go.
A: not to mention the only place to go! if you just want greek food and you’re in san diego, i wouldn’t waste my time with a trip to OB to get it. the falafels were good, but that’s pretty much it. i give the village kabob a 3.0/5. if you want falafels, they’re your man. if you want anything else, try a different venue.
T: Hmph, well I don’t think any trip to OB is really a waste of time 😛
A: agreed… unless of course you are dying for some great greek food.
