Chelokababi is a
family owned and operated restaurant that dates back to 1979.
It was started by Mohammad and Ashraf Rahbar shortly after they
arrived in the United States from Iran, trying to re-establish
their life after leaving everything behind during the revolution.
The first few years Chelokababi was in business, it occupied only
the area that is now the lobby, and featured simple counter service.
The entire restaurant only had three picnic tables for customers to dine-in. During
the busy lunch period, it was not uncommon to pull into the parking
lot and see groups of happy people standing around and socializing
while enjoying their kabob on the hoods of their cars.
Well, certainly things
have changed since the early days. In 1984, Chelokababi expanded
into the area next door, metamorphosing into the full service
establishment that we all know and love today. Along the way,
Chelokababi has become famous state-wide for serving authentic
Persian Cuisine using the same methods and traditions used for
generations in Iran. With an unwavering policy of using only the
freshest ingredients, and portions generous to make sure that
no one ever goes home hungry, Chelokababi Restaurant really has
become Persian Delicacy at it's Finest.
Our mission is making sure that
no detail is left unfinished, whether creating spectacular meals
in the restaurant, or putting together lunch for 50 people for one of
our many corporate clients.
Whether you are one
of our corporate clients, a lunchtime regular at the restaurant,
or just a casual visitor thinking about us again, we thank you
for being our customer, and helping us become the business we
