The wait that classic Hawaiian plate lunch is nearly over.
Hawaiian Bros., the Hawaiian fast casual concept, is set to begin opening area locations over the next month or so.
Denton and Alliance (Fort Worth) locations are set to open in June with Hurst and Hulen (Fort Worth) set to open in July. Each restaurant features a striking design and island vibe with a kitchen void of freezers, fryers and microwaves. Food is prepared fresh daily. The concept offers island comfort food in the form of Hawaiian plate lunches as well as sides.
The first Hawaiian Bros opened in Kansas City in 2018 by brothers, Cameron and Tyler McNie, and has quickly become a staple for those who are looking for unique, consistent, high-quality food in a fast casual setting. Prior to opening their first location, the brothers were personally taught traditional Hawaiian recipes and cooking techniques used by native Hawaiians for generations.
The classic Hawaiian plate lunch that remains an essential part of Hawaiian culture consists of fresh, flavorful meats, like slow-roasted pulled pork and marinated teriyaki chicken, along with traditional side dishes such as jasmine rice and tangy macaroni salad. It is the beloved comfort food one may eat with your Ohana – (Hawaiian for “Family”).
With a ghost kitchen currently located in Dallas/Fort Worth since August of 2020, the first brick and mortar locations in the area are set to open in June and July. More will follow throughout the year with 18 units total in the country by the end of July.
