After over a decade in business, a beloved kabob restaurant in Courthouse will be changing hands this week.
Mere hours after Afghan Kabob House shutters its doors for good tomorrow (Thursday), Courthouse Kabob will open in its place the next morning.
The new owners also manage Arlington Kabob on Lee Highway (5046 Lee Highway). Co-owner Susan Clementi said the Courthouse transaction happened quickly and seamlessly.
“We know this is a fast changeover, but we are excited to bring an extension of Afghan kabobs to the Courthouse area,” Clementi said.
Located at 2045 Wilson Blvd, Courthouse Kabob will feature a similar menu of grilled meats and lunch specials. Unlike Afghan Kabob House, however, it will not feature hookah tables and will close earlier in the night, at 11 p.m.
“Our primary focus is to provide quick and healthy lunch and dinner options such as kabobs, assortment of fresh prepared salads, fresh baked to order naan, and authentic Afghan vegetable side dishes,” Clementi said.
Courthouse Kabob’s official hours will be 10 a.m.-11 p.m.
Former Afghan Kabob owner Akbar Mandany recently told ARLnow his decision to close stemmed from food trucks and third-party delivery apps taking away from his business.

The Virginia Purple Star Designation is awarded to military-friendly schools that have demonstrated a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military. Disappointingly, despite its proximity to the heart of the military, only one APS school (Discovery Elementary) earned the Purple Star designation in 2019-2020. None has earned it for 2020-2021.
