I first heard of Halal Guys in New York and the over an hour wait for their amazing chicken and rice as well as their gyro sandwiches. I didn’t have the pleasure to try the original New York location, but I’ve gotten to try the Houston location and now in NOLA. I’ve gone multiple times since it’s so convenient and on my way home from work.
The Halal Guys.
Beef and Chicken Combo Bowl.
What’s inside the Combo Bowl…
Fries…because I can’t say “no” to fries…
I definitely enjoyed the short wait time and delicious food here at the NOLA location. The gyro was delicious and the Combo bowl was good, BUT the chicken is consistently dry here. I would go easy on their HOT sauce. It’s deceivingly HOT but very flavorful!
The Halal Guys purists will say that “Nothing beats The Halal Guys in New York City!”, but until I try it, I’m still enjoying the Halal guys here in New Orleans. The location is quite small, but there’s a good amount of seats considering the location downtown. Service is hit or miss, but I’m usually in and out so no biggie.
