    Founded by Mohammed Abouelenein in 1990 as a hot dog cart. In 1992 they changed the business to be as it's today. Overrated food thus!

    Chicken and Rice (best drunk food!)

    Christian Fielitz · 1 week ago

    There's usually a shorter line on the 7th Ave and W 53rd St side. Chicken was dry and lacked flavor so stick to just lamb. Can't beat the value proposition here for $7. 4/5

    Very delicious food and friendly service. I recommend the falafel.

    Got the mixed rice twice in a week! So good! Be careful not to put too much hot sauce though, it's super spicy and this is coming from someone who can take spicy

    Chicken and Lamb combo. Hot sauce is super hot, so taste it before you add too much. Don't skimp on white sauce!

  • Justas Z.

    Cheap, good, filling. Watch out with the red sauce!

    If you come to NYC forget about eating $5 street hotdogs, eat this! Great spicy, tender meat. It's worth the wait!

    OG combo over rice. The wait is worth is and don't get fooled by imposters nearby!

    If you're in New York and out past midnight stop by to get some delicious street meat!

    1 portion is ok for 2 people, really tasty. Avoid the hot sauce for your health :)

    It's definitely worth the wait in line for this reasonably priced bowl of chicken and rice goodness! The ranch sauce to top it off perfects the dish.

    The spicy sauce is really really hot! Be careful! But food is really good!

  • Elif

    If you do something well, here is the result. We have waited half an hour to taste and enjoyed a lot. Hot sauce is really hot, be careful and have the white sauce as much as possible.

    I ordered gyro over rice and falafel sandwich at 4:30pm on a rainy day which means line was non existent. I got chicken over rice and gyro sandwich. They have only 3 proteins. You deduce my thoughts..

    One of the best street foods you'll find in NYC! Trust me, it's worth the wait.

    Cheat Tip: Ask your cab driver to buy you the food. They get to skip the line, specially during late nights on weekend.

  • Chrissy T.

    Gyro sandwich was super tasty, filling and only 5 bucks. Plus, they're really efficient and the long line moves quickly.

    The food will lay on you like a bad suit. Tastes good for the first bite but after that, you better have the pepcid ac ready

    Excelente Ford. Quite affordable. If u go to ny u cant miss this place. Always ask for extra quite sauce.

  • Gizem T.

    Mixed gyro tastes good. White sauce is a must but hot sauce is terrible although I had just 5 drops. Either the sauce or the food itself made my stomach hurt all night.

    Gizem Tabak · March 28
  • Kevin Matthew T.

    Literally THE BEST place to get a scrumptious platter. With the best white sauce around and a very affordable price for a big plate, it's no wonder there's always a line! (Don't worry, they're fast).

  • Alden C.

    Chicken over rice is delicious, ask for more salad though! Careful with the red hot sauce, it is VERY hot (but good, so add more white sauce to balance it out!)

    There is No Other Hallal. If you want good drinking food without the excess peppers and onions for a great price; you find yourself here.

    Peter Grubb · March 15
  • Brandon B.

    I like the one of the northeast corner who allow you to put on your own sauces (so much extra white sauce). Definitely get a side of falafel as well. Great NYC experience.

    Get the gyro with lamb meat! :)
