New York City Famous Since 1990…

It all started in 1990, when the founding partners opened a hot dog cart on West 53rd & 6th Avenue, New York, NY. They saw a huge demand among the Muslim cab drivers needing to have a halal Muslim meal. They quickly exchanged their cart and began servicing halal food, which became a huge success. They focused on the enhancement of their products to make it different and enjoyable. From that time, they pledged to use the best halal products to serve the public. During that time, they created their special magic white sauce and fiery hot sauce, which our public loves. Now The Halal Guys has steadily grown to become the leading and largest food cart company within the New York area.

With 24 consecutive years of positive sales growth, The Halal Guys has set itself apart by pioneering innovations and creating delicious products—including the ever-popular White Sauce for customers.
