Glendale is a city that lives and dies by their neighborhood staples, and Raffi’s is one of the very best. This Middle Eastern restaurant’s specialty is kabobs, and the barg (thinly-sliced filet mignon) is the best. Most dishes run above the $20 mark, which seems high until you realize Raffi’s portions will feed you and your roommates for a week. The space itself is festive and truly massive, perfect for any-sized friend or family dinner.
