The Hala Guys Say:
From humble beginnings as a New York City hot dog cart to a world-renowned international restaurant chain, The Halal Guys story is the quintessential American Dream. The Halal Guys is defining a new, thriving segment for the restaurant industry: American Halal Food!

The Halal Guys legend began in 1990, when the three founding partners opened up a hot dog cart on West 53rd $ 6th Avenue in New York City. As business grew, they recognized a huge demand from Muslim cab drivers looking for a halal food meal. That is when the famous platter of chicken and gyro over rice was born. And let’s not forget about the famous white and red sauces!

Fast-forward 25 years, five carts, two New York City restaurants, and millions of diverse customers served, The Halal Guys is growing yet again. Fans no longer have to be in NYC to experience The Halal Guys as they look to share American Halal Food all over the country and the world.
Step Out’s two cents:
The franchise recently opened a location in the Boulevard Consumer Square on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst, right next to Naan-tastic and Blaze Pizza.

Started in the 1990s as a converted hot dog cart in New York City, The Halal Guys became known for serving cheap, delicious Mediterranean food, to the point they launched a mini fleet of food carts. At one point, The New York Post said The Halal Guys carts were ‘perhaps the city’s most famous open-air dining destination.’

Nearly three decades since the first cart, The Halal Guys now also serves its famous Mediterranean food in the familiar fast-casual format, as seen at Niagara Falls Boulevard location. In a recent phone interview, brand manager Melvin Quintanilla told us about operating a franchise with such a big cult following. Read More
