Between California Donuts, The Boiling Crab and Kang Hodong Baekjeong, Koreatown is no stranger to obnoxiously long lines. So find your patience and claim your spot now because the Halal Guys are opening a new location in the heart of the neighborhood.
The popular pita spot started in New York City, but they're quickly expanding throughout Southern California. Last year they opened up shop in Costa Mesa, and more recently they added a Long Beach location. To say the eatery was welcomed warmly in those neighborhoods would be an understatement considering both drew long lines from eager customers.
The new location will open on the corner of Wilshire and South Mariposa, and will most likely open by mid-April, according to Eater. While parking is always a concern in Koreatown, Eater also reports that they might have access to the building's lot. The new storefront will also most likely keep the same hours as other locations, which stay open until midnight or 1am, giving us plenty of time to get comfortable in our place in line while we wait.
