What many consider to be New York City's most popular food cart is coming to Dallas: The Halal Guys will open a location at 5444 Lemmon Ave. in July.
The fast casual concept, known for Middle Eastern dishes such as gyros, chicken and rice platters, and that famous white sauce, has been in business for 25 years. There are already locations in Houston, Chicago, and Southern California, and franchise opportunities will be available for Dallas.
"We are honored and beyond excited to open Dallas' very first Halal Guys," says operating partner Danny Bui in a release. "Our loyal fans will no longer have to smuggle it back from New York City, and new fans will get to discover that the food is addictive and delicious due to its savory flavor profiles and heartiness."
Fransmart, known for building up the Five Guys burger empire, is spearheading this deal with the largest American halal street food concept in the world.
The Manhattan-based Halal Guys was created by three like-minded men from Egypt who came to America in search of a lucrative life. In 2013, Halal Guys was ranked the most popular food truck reviewed on FourSquare. By 2014, it was the third-most Yelped restaurant in the United States.
That stuff is really important.
The Lemmon Avenue location will also cater to night owls with rumbling stomachs.
