The Halal Guys, the popular NYC street cart outfit, will open a brick-and-mortar spot near Waterford Lakes in early 2017.

As any New Yorkers currently living in the Orlando area will agree, they make a damn good falafel.

The new location will be at 26 North Alafaya Trail, suite 103. So far, no exact date has been given for the opening. But you can follow their progress on their Facebook page.
