This is the second cart of the original Halal Guys cart, located across the street from this one. In contrast with the original cart, this cart is open both during the daytime and at night (approximately noon to 5 am, with a cook switch at 7 pm). The cart also offers falafel and kofta from time to time. Contrary to some skeptics, that cart is run by the same owner.
'All the people of the world can be put into two categories: those who have had the platter, and those who have not.' For years masses of people have been flocking to the corner of 53rd & 6th (7:30PM - 4AM) to satisfy their hunger with simply the best meal in the City. Some people call it the 'Platter' while others know it as 'Chicken & Rice', the 'Chicken Guy' or the 'Gyro Spot.' Part of the secret to this delicious meal is in the white sauce. Nobody knows what it is, but everybody knows to ask for lots of it.
A third cart exists on the south-west corner of 53rd Street and 7th Avenue, and begins serving food at lunch time. A fourth cart has been added on the corner of 52nd and 6th. This cart was previously owned by a competitor but has now been taken over by the owners of the 53rd and 6th cart. Added on April 1, 2012 and last updated 2 years ago
