NYC’s famous The Halal Guys opened its first Georgia restaurant in Chamblee

Chamblee, Jan 28, 2017 — New York’s popular ‘chicken-and-rice cart host a grand opening of its first brick-and-mortar Georgia location in the northeast Atlanta suburb of Chamblee.

No first-timer trip to New York is complete without waiting in a massive line to get to the front of the cart line or front door for a taste of The Halal Guys, and that’s the same hype that the new location on Buford Highway is set to service. Known for their famous beef gyro sandwiches, chicken-and-rice platters and “secret” white sauce, The Halal Guys’ menu offers a mix of various American Halal food.

“After a longer than expected construction process, I’m excited to finally open our red and yellow doors to the public,” said Moynul Chowdhury, operating franchisee of the Chamblee location. “It’s been amazing to see and hear the excitement from so many people—both in
person and on our social media channels—as soon as our signs and signature colors went up on the corner of Clairmont Road and Buford Highway. We couldn’t have picked a more eclectic part of town to open our first location —- it fits us perfectly.”

Chowdhury is also eyeing several more stores in the coming six months. ”We’re possibly targeting Gwinnett and Midtown areas for our next couple of stores in metro Atlanta.”

To reward those with the most anticipation of chowing down on a Halal Guys platter or sandwich, the first 50 fans received a free entree platter and fountain drink of their choice; the next 200 customers also received a Halal Guys T-Shirt.

On opening day, diners enjoyed live entertainment from local artists and a raffle featuring various prizes from The Halal Guys and other partners supporting the restaurant’s opening.

The Halal Guys’ Chamblee location is just steps away from the City Market Supermarket. The location will also offer free WiFi and parking.
