Royal Kabob Restaurant Opens in South City


  • Ian Froeb
Royal Kabob Restaurant is now open at 3611 Bates Avenue (the former location of El Burrito Loco). As Gut Check learned last month, Royal Kabob shares an owner with the small grocery store across the street at 3608 Bates, Ariana Market.

According to a sign on the front door, the restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. As you might be able to see in the menu in the photo above, the restaurant serves Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, including shish kabobs, kofta and dolma.

Oddly, the restaurant's signage calls itself Royal Kabob, but it registered with the Missouri Secretary of State's office as Royal Kebab.
