Or will be! The long-awaited opening of Chicago’s firstHalal Guys restaurant is rumored to be in the works, with a possible late-August opening. Known mainly as a New York cart vendor, the Halal Guys have brought it inside for Chicago, with a small six-table location on Division.
Specializing in falafel and gyros, Halal Guys seem to be mainly known for their white sauce. In fact, the New York Times puts it like this “But it’s the white sauce, always the white sauce, that draws everybody in, from uniformed cops to dainty girls whose palates otherwise incline to macarons…”.
The official opening is still under wraps, but there has been a flurry of activity behind the butcher paper covering the windows – expect a lunch report as soon as they open!
