Can never go to NYC without getting chicken & rice! The cart located on 53rd and 7th closes at 5 am, an hour after the cart on 53rd and 6th closes.

No trip to New York would be complete without the Halal Guys. Their lamb over rice is to die for. We had this after each Broadway show that we went to, it was well worth the walk. The hot sauce, is well, hot, so ask for it to be served on the side. For six dollars this would have to... More

Having heard jokes of dirty water dogs in NYC, I've never been one to experiment with street food in the city. However, I also have learned, if there is a line longer than about 10 people at a stand during "off" hours, you might want to try it. This is the best bargain you will find in NYC on some... More

Had to make a stop here while in NYC. Read the reviews & friends that live here swear by it. Walked right up on a Thursday night with a few people in line....they've got 2 carts across the intersection from each other. Ordered the combo Gyro & Chicken with rice, asked for spicy sauce. My word, it was awesome &... More
