CORDOVA, TN -

(WMC-TV) - THIS WEEK'S BIG TIP:  Kabob International, 8050 Dexter Rd., Cordova, TN, 901-755-9385.

You haven't been called "Baby" until Shrzad Ash calls you "Baby."

You haven't had true 'Persian grill' until Mansour Ash spatulas a lamb shank on your plate.

Why we haven't been to Kabob International in Cordova until now, we don't know.

It's been our loss.

Mansour, of Azerbaijan, and Shrzad, of the Persian Gulf, make it absolutely clear their fare is authentic Mediterranean & Persian cuisine -- as if the look, smell and taste weren't enough.

"Everything we make is homemade," said Shrzad. "When you taste it, you're going to love it."

We did -- the beef kabobs, the chicken kabobs, the lamb kabobs, that lamb shank (MY favorite) -- all meticulously prepared by Mansour and his cooks and lovingly served by a doting Shrzad.

"I love the owners," said customer Bahar Abesi of Cordova. "They're very nice, very sweet people."

So sweet, almost to a person the customers we met said the Ashs' personalities add even more flavor to their yummy menu. 

One put it this way:  she loves the Euro-Gyro "because it's THEIR Euro-Gyro. THAT'S what makes it good."

Good enough for me!

WHAT ANDY LIKES: Lamb Kabob, Lamb Shank, Euro-Gyro, Dill Rice, Wonderful Family Atmosphere/Service
