The Halal Guys’ Chicken And Gyro Platter Is NYC’s Most Legendary Street Food | Legendary Eats

Food & Drink
The Halal Guys first came to the streets of New York City in 1990, when the three founders opened up a hot-dog cart in Midtown. They realized there was a demand from Muslim cab drivers looking for a halal meal, so they began serving American halal food from the cart. The Arabic term halal means ‘lawful’ and is often used in Islam to describe meat that is permissible to eat based on specific religious guidelines. But in New York, many people know halal as the affordable food they can find at many street carts across the city. At The Halal Guys’ original cart on 53rd Street and 6th Avenue, people wait in line for the iconic combo platter, a foil dish packed with chicken and gyro over rice, accompanied by lettuce, tomato, pita, and the famous and secret red and white sauces.

Editor’s Note: This episode was filmed in January 2020. The Halal Guys’ carts in New York City are currently open for takeout while restaurant locations provide both takeout and delivery. Check with your nearest location for details.
