616 Kabob Stop to Open in Creston Neighborhood

In summer 2022 we told you a sign for a new restaurant had gone up in the window of the old Subway on Plainfield Ave. across from Kingma's.

It appeared a new Mediterranean restaurant called 616 Kabob Stop would be moving into the Creston neighborhood.

A July 22, 2022 post to Facebook declared the new eatery would be opening soon...

Well, that time has finally come!

In an update October 13, 2023, the restaurant shared,

Big things are happening in Grand Rapids! Your soon-to-be favorite dining destination in the Creston Neighborhood is almost here. Our dedication to perfection has delayed our opening, but get ready for a world of deliciousness and impeccable service. Are you excited?

The owners also operate another location, 616 Kabob Stop Express in Allendale near Grand Valley State University's campus, which opened in fall of 2020.

With nearly 400 reviews on Google, the restaurant has a 4.9 star rating.

Menu at 616 Kabob Stop

The new location at 2232 Plainfield Ave NE will serve a variety of Mediterranean dishes, like Manakish, a popular Middle Eastern food consisting of flatbread dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meats.
