Take A Look At Halal Guys' First Houston Outpost

Upper Kirby by way of New York City.

The buzz surrounding the opening of a Halal Guys in Houston reached maximum levels creating one of the most anticipated restaurant openings of 2016. Why the hype? For starters, this spot is legendary in NYC – lines form early and wrap around Midtown blocks for some of the best street food around.

When the concept announced it would head to Houston, the rumor spread quickly, leading Halal Guys to kick off a sold-out UberEATS promo before kicking open the doors.

As far as the menu is concerned, the options are few – choose from chicken, falafel, beef or a combo over rice – but the quality is strong. As is Halal Guys' famous red sauce, a spicy red pepper blend that you'll want to grab plenty of.

They've finally celebrated a grand opening at the first Houston location in Upper Kirby and now we bring you some photos of the spot itself, which has gone through several reincarnations including a previous life as a car wash. Scope out the spot, then make plans for a plate of falafel post-haste.
