The Halal Guys - Now in Costa Mesa

Pin It



 One of the most anticipated openings
in Southern California...

The Halal Guys are Here!

On Opening Day (October 2, 2015), the line was 4 hours long.
I was there on a mid-week afternoon, the wait was about an 
hour and a half.


Yes, that famous New York City original
is now in Southern California! 


So, what do you order at the Halal Guys?

 Known for their gyros, chicken with
rice, and lots and lots of white sauce.


See What Jay Eats...

 The Halal Classic Platter
with chicken & gyro
and all of the fixings.

One thing I learned from my visit, each ingredient is
of the highest quality, each piece of chicken
is inspected before cooking, rice is constantly
being cooked to ensure quality throughout 
the day, and fries are made to order.

By looking at it, you might say, it's so simple, just chicken 
and rice in an aluminum container.  But if you don't 
do it right, it's just chicken and rice...
If it's done right, it's a great chicken and rice!

They do it right here...


 They have falafels too



Can't leave without dessert,
the baklava was moist.



It was a nice reminder of my trips to NYC,
it tasted like I was at West 53rd and 6th Ave.

I think what a lot of people may not know,
the quality of the products used for
this chicken and rice dish.

have enjoyed for awhile, checkout
