Finals aren’t even over yet, but there’s already a reason to get excited to head back to campus come spring.

As with all things exciting, it involves food – kabobs, to be exact.

The Halal Guys chain, a New York City staple known for red-and-yellow street food carts and steaming gyros since the ’90s, is coming to the District, the Washington Business Journal reported.

The street cart chain, which opened its first New York brick-and-mortar store in the summer, has plans to open 100 shops over the next five years, Eater reported, including as many as 10 in D.C. starting in spring 2015.

Although the iconic carts aren’t part of the expansion plan, the “Guys” will continue serving chicken and rice platters, gyros and, of course, their famous kabobs.

The company, which has partnered with franchise consulting firm Fransmart, also hopes to open locations in Northern Virginia, Los Angeles, Canada and eventually Europe.
