Silver Skewers is a deceiving little restaurant. From the exterior it’s nothing special, but the plain storefront facade hides an exciting local dining experience. The restaurant, located on Old Washington Road in Waldorf, MD is probably the only place in Charles County that specializes in Persian cuisine, and the food is nothing short of astounding.
I’ve been to Silver Skewers several times, and the menu is very straightforward. As the restaurant name implies, they sell kabobs. I’ve probably had every option on the menu (It’s not a huge selection), and the only disappointment I’ve found is that the lamb kabobs tend to be a little on the small side, but the portions offered with their beef, chicken, and salmon more than make up for it.
For desert, you have two options: Home-made ice cream or Baklava. Trust me one this one, while the ice cream is tasty, it would be a disservice to your taste buds to skip the Baklava. It’s always perfectly flaky, and the sauce they drizzle on top is incredible.
Not only is the food outstanding, the service is excellent as well. I consistently lament about the generally poor service I see at the chain eateries in Southern Maryland, but here they really seem to get it when it comes to make their patrons feel welcome and comfortable. Make sure you check them out and I’m sure you’ll be as happy as I was!
