You’re going to Mini Kebob because the kebabs are really, really good. But you’re also going because Mini Kebob is a Glendale institution, and getting to spend even five minutes talking to the elderly couple who run the place is guaranteed to improve your day. This old-school joint is cash only, the size of broom closet, and ideal for a quick takeout lunch. Try the eggplant caviar and Tarragon soda as well.
