Monday Menus – This is a NYC success story. The Halal Guys started as NYC street food 25 years ago, and became so popular they opened restaurants around NYC. Now, they are expanding nationally, with their fresh Middle Eastern menu including gyro sandwiches, chicken-and-rice platters and their famous white sauce.
The Halal Guys already operate in Houston, Chicago and Southern California, and are adding Arizona soon – a national business that started with one single food cart in midtown Manhattan and a lot of hard work.
The success of the The Halal Guys is due in part to their concept of healthy, fresh food made to order.
They pride themselves on only using high-quality products like their chicken, which has never been frozen and is marinated and seasoned overnight, then cooked and chopped on the grill and served directly to their plate to ensure a crave worthy meal that’s piping hot.
The success of The Halal Guys also is helped by our national move away from fast food burgers toward ethnic foods and higher quality fast-casual restaurants.
In New York City, The Halal Guys still operate many food carts, including in Rockefeller Center. Their sit-down restaurants include 53rd St. and Sixth Ave., 14th Street, between First and Second Avenues and 31-10 Thompson Street in Long Island City. Find additional locations here.
What’s that famous line from that famous song – If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. The Halal Guys prove that’s true.
