How many names can one kabob restaurant have? That might be the question shoppers at the Ashburn Farm Market Center are asking after a small Afghan restaurant there has changed monikers once again.
What was once the VA Kabob House, and then the Accord Grill, now has new owners and a new name. It’s officially Smoki Kabobs — part of a small, local chain that is just getting rolling.
The brand also has a location in Chantilly and another in Washington DC. The Ashburn location is open and serving, but they are still in the transition process from the previous iteration.
The menu at Smoki Kabob in Ashburn Farm is similar to other kabob restaurants in the area. Kabobs made with beef, lamb, and chicken dominate.
But there are also appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and traditional Afghan entrees like Qabli Palau, Lamb Shank, Mantu, and Afghan Karahi.
The owner tells us he plans to open more Smoki Kabobs in the region, and hopes to eventually franchise the concept.
