Re: “Slow Shish Kebabs

"...cannot claim any other point of view except that of butthurt childishness because they perceive "their" restaurant as being attacked."

You don't seem to understand, "Not a Rancho Snob." Those who have commented are not being childish because we think our restaurant has been "attacked." I am commenting and disagreeing with the writer because she wrote a poor and inaccurate review. Why didn't she mention the belly dancing? What exterior was she expecting for a restaurant in a strip mall? Also, unless she wants to go to Chipotle or McDonalds to get fast service, I don't believe she should be complaining about the wait time. "Good things come to those who wait."

I cannot "claim any other view" because over the numerous times I have been to the Shish Kebab House, I have never had a bad experience. Why would I advocate against something I like?
Burnie: As far as I have seen, no one said "This article makes me sad/mad/depressed." I didn't see any feelings in these comments.

Re: “Slow Shish Kebabs

This article is purely based on opinion and not facts. I have gone to the Shish Kebab House numerous times and thoroughly enjoy their food and the atmosphere. They serve the best Mediterranean food I have ever tasted. Their pita bread is always hot and fresh, the falafel is to die for, and I always get the delicious classic, the Gyro Boy.

Why you didn't mention the Belly Dancing that takes place every weekend, boggles my mind. I don't know of any other Middle Eastern restaurant that features such a cultural experience.

You also complain about the "dingy" and "less than inviting" exterior. Most family-owned businesses that are absolutely delicious are hole in the walls. (Ex. Poco and Mom's) If you wanted an exterior that really wowed you, maybe you should have gone across the way and eaten at Peter Piper Pizza.

Case and Point, your article is merely a poor opinion. Shish Kebab House has a 4.4 rating for a reason. They serve the best Mediterranean food in Tucson, have great family service and provide an evening you won't forget and will most likely go back to for more.
