The Halal Guys, a sensation on the streets of New York City since 1990 have announced that they will celebrate their arrival in South Florida with an all-day Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, January 21, 2017. Beginning at 11AM, festivities will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony with local dignitaries expected including Davie Mayor Judy Paul and Councilmember Caryl Hattan. Then, the doors will swing open for enthusiastic guests, eager to sample the popular gyro and chicken sandwiches and platters that have made The Halal Guys a legend since their start at West 53rd & 6th Avenue in New York City in 1990.

Fun giveaways will mark the opening along with fun tunes by DJ Carsonicboom. The first 100 customers will receive free t-shirts and each customer will have the opportunity to spin a giant game show style wheel for prizes, redeemable on their next visit, ranging from 10-20% off, free fries, free drink, or a free platter! For exclusive access to pre-opening VIP events and other special offers and promotions customers can register for The Halal Guys Rewards card at where 50 people will be randomly selected to receive their first platter for free!

Franchise owner, Shahmeer Alam, a Davie resident, is excited to bring The Halal Guys fresh, iconic cuisine to South Florida. He enlisted two restaurant industry veterans, general manager David Miller and assistant general manager, Bruce Newman to launch what will be the first of many – a second Pembroke Pines location is already in the works for later in 2017. “Come early,” advises Alam, who has witnessed blocks-long lines at other restaurant openings for The Halal Guys around the United States.

The American Halal Food that South Florida patrons will experience is made using the highest quality sourced meats. The sandwiches and platters will feature beef gyro, freshly grilled, marinated chicken, and falafel. Available toppings include onions, jalapenos, olives, green peppers and sauces are the famous white sauce, hot sauce, and bbq. Side dishes include hummus, baba ghanouj, falafel, and fries with baklava for dessert. Prices range from $6.99 for a regular sandwich to $8.99 for a combo chicken & gyro platter.
