The Halal Guys is opening its first Calgary location this week, bringing YYC diners a taste of the iconic brand’s delicious eats.

The food cart turned fast food chain originated in NYC in the ’90s and has since amassed a cult-like following.

Its menu is popular for sandwiches and platters packed with chicken and/or gyro.

The new eatery is located at 923 17th Avenue SW and boasts a bright, fast-paced atmosphere with friendly staff.

Restaurant-goers order at the front counter and then follow their meal along as it’s put together, working with a team member on the way to ensure they get their perfect combination of vegetables and sauces in the dish.

After paying at the front, diners take their meal to one of the eatery’s many tables to enjoy.

The Halal Guys pairs soft drinks and neatly packaged, perfectly flaky baklava with main courses to round out their offerings.
