Signage isn't up yet, but New York-based The Halal Guys looks to be building out at 814 H Street NE. The space is still far from finished, but work is ongoing and they appear to be hiring. Almost exactly a year ago The Halal Guys indicated on Twitter that they were expanding into the DC area.
Hello people of Washington, DC + NoVA! We are coming! First store opening this summer at Dunn Loring Metro w/ more to come! #halaleats— The Halal Guys DC (@halalguysdc) April 27, 2016
Stores at Dunn Loring, George Mason University, and Springfield all opened since then. The H Street location would join another in Dupont as the first DC franchised locations.
There is a generic menu on their main web page, but I'm assuming each individual franchise restaurant can add whatever makes sense for them. I'll have to try the falafel & fries. Stay tuned!
