On The Heels Of A Successful Opening At Its First Location in Dallas, The Concept Continues To Gain Momentum
After opening its first Dallas location to huge crowds and a ‘never-ending line,’ The Halal Guys is launching its next location in Richardson Restaurant Park slated to open in November 2016. The Richardson Restaurant Park location is a brand new dining destination featuring numerous food concepts and is conveniently located along the Central Expressway. The fast-casual New York famed concept opened its first Dallas location at 5444 Lemmon Avenue this past July and have plans to bring more units throughout the area. Famously known for its famous white sauce, gyro sandwiches and chicken-and-rice platters, The Halal Guys menu offers a mix of different Middle Eastern dishes.
“Richardson Restaurant Park is going to be the newest premier foodie destination in the Dallas area with several other food concepts. Strategically we think this is area needs more dining options and we are very excited to bring The Halal Guys to a growing community,” said Operating Partner, Danny Bui.
Since the opening on July 23rd, The Halal Guys’ cult-like following skyrocketed with a never-ending line wrapped around the parking lot with guests willing to wait over two hours to try their famous sandwiches and platters. Despite the long wait time, the consensus was that the brick-and-mortar location in Dallas had delivered the same flavors as the original food carts in New York and the long lines remain.
The Halal Guys aim to be different and encourage patrons across America to try something unique. They pride on only using high-quality products like their chicken, which has never been frozen and is marinated and seasoned overnight, then cooked and chopped on the grill and served directly to their plate to ensure a crave worthy meal that’s piping hot. The Halal Guys’ mission is to ensure that every customer leaves happy, with a smile on their face and a satisfaction that brings them back again.
The Halal Guys grew from its humble beginnings as a food cart on the streets of New York City to a global icon known as the largest American halal street food concept in the world. This Manhattan-based landmark was created by three like-minded men from Egypt who came to America in search of a better life. When Mohamed Abouelenein, Ahmed Elsaka and Abdelbaset Elsayed noticed many Muslim cab drivers in New York were looking for a place to buy meals in Manhattan, they created their first food cart and quickly grew into a leading tourist and native New Yorker destination for American Halal fare. In 2013, The Halal Guys were ranked the most popular food truck reviewed on FourSquare and the third most Yelped restaurant in the United States in 2014.
Among being awarded the 2014 Multicultural Award at The 5th American Muslim Consumer Conference, The Halal Guys have also been recognized by TIME Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, The New York Times and The Huffington Post.
