Lines flowed out the door and down Division Street for the grand opening of the Halal Guys' first food service location outside New York today.

The new Gold Coast food counter has something of a cult following, thanks to dedicated New York City ex-pats and fans of its famous white sauce. This one is the beginning of a major expansion for the Halal Guys, who have 200 franchises in the works from coast to coast. Expect more in Chicago to come.

Halal Guys is located at 49 W. Division St. in the Gold Coast. Its regular business hours will be Sun. through Thurs. 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Fri. to Sat. 11 a.m. to 4 a.m.
