“So much food for a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

A friend recommended this food truck. So three of us decided to try it out and it was the best! Gyros for $4 and rice with meat for $6. You can either get chicken or gyro or a combo of both. Both are great but i prefer the gyro with rice. The portions are huge so you can definitely share with some one place. When we went they werent selling drinks so i dont know if that is the usual or just that time. But there are a bunch of places around to get something to drink as well as a place to sit and enjoy the city.

“Best value in NYC.... don't be a snob and simply stand in the line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

My wife and I visited the Halal Guys twice while in NYC. It was our first meal in NYC and we were very happy with our decision. We were surprised with the size of the portions, the value and the taste. I had the mixed plate while my wife had a gyros sandwich. Both of us were very impressed but realized that we the mixed plate could have fed both of us. The guys serving up the food had a great attitude and when we returned, we had the same experience. Sandwiches were $4 and plates were $6, stand in the line and enjoy the experience....

TIP: Try to avoid going at peak hours, expect to stand in line but it moves quite quickly. Ask the guys for a both white sauce and spice. Water is $2 and if you ask for spice, you'll need it or a bottle of Snapple. You can dine on the steps of the building just north of the food cart. If the line is too long, simply walk across 6th to their other cart on the SW corner.

Definitely worth a visit....

“Late night must have.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I have read all the reviews of these guys and always thought.. street food? No thanks.

But, I was so wrong. I also thought they are all the same. Again, wrong wrong wrong!!

I have no idea why, but the flavored of the meat and chicken are just amazing. Same kind of grill as the rest, but this is truly special.

I had the combo plate and extra sauce (the key for me) and just found a seat and ate. Plenty to share if you need to, but when in NYC eat at all the great restaurants and then take the time to sample this Halal stand. Classic!

“Great ,cheap food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Came across these guys when heading to a nighttime viewing of 30 rock . Had really good meal. we got a gyro (spiced lamb meat) over rice and a chicken over rice. Both were tasty but we discovered that a little chilli sauce goes a long way. Went back the night after and was just as good , highly recommended.
