Literally the best Halal place in the city. It's the perfect spot late at night after going out or for a really good lunch with coworkers. The lines can be long, but it's worth the wait.

Can't help to wonder what the hypes are about. This particular Halal Cart is highly recommended by almost every single foodie friends that I trust. I have no choice but to place this on my must try list for my recent NYC trip.
Got there around 10pm and the line is not too horrible. I have been warned of the super long line and was definitely expecting worse. The line moved rather quickly. In no more than 15 minutes I got my combo chicken and lamb over rice and was totally ready to feast.
The meat definitely tasted much better than it looked. The lamb and chicken were both moist and tender but the lamb is better than the chicken in my opinion. With the help of those legendary white sauce, everything tasted great. Like many others have mentioned, you do need to overload it with the white sauce! Otherwise everything will seem dry and bland. The portion is very generous. The quality is great for street food standard but it is really no 5 stars mind-blowing exquisite meal. Fast, cheap and tasty. Halal Cart platter makes a perfect late night snack.

The best chicken and rice in town. For $6, you get a massive bowl of chicken/lamb and rice with lettuce and pitas. The red condiments are very spicy (those with sensitive tongues are now forewarned). The line is often long but the affordable price, massive serving, and delicious food makes this food cart completely worth it!

Cheep felafel and doner sandwiches galore. Eating street food is a New York tradition. During lunch hour business people mingle with college students and tourists.

People refer to this cart as the "Chicken and Rice" truck because of its most popular item: chicken and rice. For $6 you can get a styrofoam container heaping with tender, flavorful chicken and rice that will leave you stuffed for days. Talks of a franchise are in the making, and for good reason, be prepared to wait in a line during popular meal times!

My favorite meal to get at 3am in the morning! Chicken and Rice with White Sauce and Hot Sauce. The lines are long depending on the time of night you go but totally worth it for a $6 meal!

Accept no imitations! Make sure it's the authentic Halal Guys on 53rd and 6th (they also have a location on 7th Ave). $6 for a plate of lamb and/or chicken on top of rice pilaf, pita, salad. Ask for peppers and falafel like I did :) no extra charge! I'm still trying to figure out what's in their white sauce.. My hunch is part Greek yogurt, part Ranch, and a pinch of crack :P Their hot sauce is no joke!!!! I needed some immodium AD later on that night :X won't stop me from eating here on my next NYC trip tho... Halal Guys for life!!!!!!

A street cart for yummy food...no way! Oh yes!!!! My cousin who resides in NYC took me here for lunch one day and I was hooked! I got the combo with lamb, beef, and chicken with extra hot and white sauce...I was in heaven! Their rice is amazing, I can't wait to go back there and eat, my mouth is watering just writing this review. But just make sure you go to the correct truck, there is one on every corner, this one is the best.
