The gourmet specialty known as the Hawaiian plated lunch is coming to Plano: Mo’Bettahs Hawaiian Stylea Utah fast-casual restaurant chain, will open its first location in Plano at 1801 Preston Rd. #B, at the intersection of Park Boulevard, in what was once an Aaron Brothers art store.
According to a report, the restaurant will open on March 4.
This is DFW’s second location, following its northeast Dallas location that opened in November 2021, and was also the concept’s official Texas debut.
Mo’ Bettahs was founded in Bountiful, Utah in 2008 by brothers Kimo and Kalani Mack, who grew up in Oahu, Hawaii and wanted to recreate the Hawaiian island barbecue experience they loved growing up. The brothers have since expanded to 27 locations in Utah, Idaho and Texas.
The signature plate includes a choice of meat from a selection of teriyaki chicken, teriyaki steak, kalua pig, chicken pulehu, fried chicken katsu or shrimp tempura – along with macaroni salad and steamed rice. steam. There’s no shortage of starchy foods, and as co-founder Kimo Mack observes in a statement, this “fresh island food…is filling and energizing for the day.”
The Plano location will comprise 3,114 square feet and showcase a new prototype designed to transport diners to the islands via “exquisite landscapes of plants, flowers and waters” native to Hawaii.
“There’s nothing like hitting your favorite local surf spot or enjoying the ocean breeze, and that’s exactly what we hope our customers will feel when they visit our restaurants. “says Mack. “We look forward to bringing this special experience to more DFW and serving our ‘ono’ island cuisine to the Plano community.”
