Halal Guys History
It all started with a pure supposition, that hot dogs just weren’t a satisfying meal, not even when made by dedicated New Yorkers who knew a thing or two about them. Mohamed Abouelenein decided to address this issue by opening a food cart in New York, one that would serve halal food in a fast-casual format. Little did he know that the rise of the Halal Guys food cart would lead to the decline in the traditional hot dog cart, the personality and character of food on the go in New York was forever changed.
Since the original cart opened new locations, have sprung up all through New York, and now you can find them just about anywhere you go in the Big Apple. In fact, Halal Guys were so popular that the food carts have had to hire bouncers to keep the peace among the people in line.
