If you're like Steven Stephen, you're wondering where to get the best kabobs in the OC. Wonder no more, here's a handful of the best places, as rated by Yelp users. 

One note, I expanded the search to include kebabs, since it's essentially the same thing, except it's not cooked and served on a skewer. 

Mama's Kabob, Stanton
5 Stars (out of 87 Yelp reviews)

"It's a small mom and pop shop in a strip mall. Food was decent and I would come again. The owners were very nice and personable."  - Michelle F.

"You can feel the love and dedication in all the things they bring out." - Huy N

"Had the chicken kabob and fell in love." - Dan H. 

"The Chicken Kabab is Delicious... Well cooked, Juicy and very flavorful. The Kafta Kabab also SOOOOOOOOO DELICIOUS!!! One thing though is on the Beef Kabab, it's like a carne asada meat rather than the various other places I go [that] use the nice cubed pieces of marinated steak. This can be improved.
- Maggie M. 

"The Kafta Kabab is my personal favorite but the Chicken Kabab is very flavorful too. The Shrimp Kabab is served with a special red sauce which tastes like lobster sauce in butter. Their garlic sauce is a fine pair in any of their dishes."  - yumyum b

"This restaurant is just great. Food is delicious, staff are super friendly,  place is very clean and service is perfect.  The prices are more than reasonable." - Nick A. 

"Ordered the prime rib and chicken kabab combo, chicken adane and gyro dinner. Food was great! Prime rib and chicken kabab were tender and moist." - Lindon K. 

"The kefta and the doner kebab rivaled any I've had so far." - Kunney T.

Kerostena, Garden Grove
4.5 Stars (out of 296 Yelp reviews)

"Kerostena is truly a hidden gem. Although it's small, it's very clean and organized and the service is top-notch. They also earned themselves additional brownie points for a soda fountain/beverage station for refills because I'm always thirsty =) Last but certainly not least, the food is amazing! Kerostena is definitely a must try." - Rachel V.

"The beef kebab was just okay but the chicken kebab simply sang of juiciness and tenderness...metaphorically. Sheesh, lighten up, veganazis." - Andrea R.

"Food portion was plenty. The seasoning was really good and the meat was tender. You get a lot for what you pay for." - Maila H.

"Everything is made fresh in-house and oh, so satisfactory. Go here, get anything off the menu, prepare to be amazed. #PartyInMyMouth :)" - Kevin W.
