Halal guys serve really good beef gyro for $6. Their platters priced at $8 each are good to share. If you want a cheap eat when you're roaming around New York this is a must try.

Tasty lunch meal, worth trying if in New York City on vacation, not as good as years ago when was cheaper, less crowded and larger portions. Still worth a visit, Rafiqui’s also a good option

The "Halaal Guys" food cart up by 6th/53rd is a definite stop for us every trip to NYC! Initially there was only 1 true "Halaal Guys" cart (with other "similar" carts nearby). Over the years they parked another cart on the opposite corner, then this...More
