A Hawaiian-inspired restaurant originating from Utah will be landing on Plano to serve the island experience filled with Hawaiian native plants and designs according to CultureMap Dallas article from February 16 which reports,
“The foodie specialty known as the Hawaiian plate lunch is coming to Plano: Mo’Bettahs Hawaiian Style, a fast-casual restaurant chain from Utah, will open its first location in Plano at 1801 Preston Rd. #B, at the intersection of Park Boulevard, in what used to be an Aaron Brothers art store.
According to a relrase, the restaurant will open on March 4.
The Plano location will encompass 3,114 square feet and exemplify a new prototype designed to transport diners to the islands via “exquisite sceneries of plants, flowers, and waters” native to Hawaii.
“There’s nothing like hitting up your favorite local surf spot or taking in the breeze off the ocean, and that’s exactly what we hope our guests feel when they visit our restaurants,” Mack says. “We can’t wait to bring this special experience to more of DFW and serve our ‘ono’ island cuisine to the Plano community.”
However, the atmosphere and design will not be the only Hawaiian-themed as the restaurant will serve a genuine Hawaiian menu according to a Focus Daily News article from February 16. They say,
“Mo’ Bettahs will spread the aloha spirit by serving authentic, fresh flavors using only the finest ingredients. Guests can enjoy Hawaiian staples like the renowned plate lunch that comes with a choice of meat – grilled teriyaki chicken or steak, kalua pig, pulehu chicken, katsu chicken or shrimp tempura – along with the brand’s one-of-a-kind macaroni salad and steamed rice.
“Mo’ Bettahs quickly gained loyal fans throughout Dallas thanks to our real, authentic, fresh-from-the-islands food that is filling and gives strength for the day,” said Co-Founder Kimo Mack. “You won’t find these flavors anywhere else, and now we’re thrilled to begin serving our signature island barbecue menu from our newest prototype in Plano. There’s nothing like hitting up your favorite local surf spot or taking in the breeze off the ocean, and that’s exactly what we hope our guests feel when they visit our restaurants. We can’t wait to bring this special experience to more of DFW and serve our ‘ono’ island cuisine to the Plano community.”
This new location will be the second branch in the Dallas-Fort Worth area after the first branch which opened in Northeast Dallas last November.
