Mo' Bettahs Brings the Aloha Spirit to PlanoDallas, TX  (  The Plano community can now fill their opu (stomach) with ono (delicious) island food because Mo’ Bettahs Hawaiian Style Restaurant opened its doors at 1801 Preston Road, Ste. B on Friday, March 4!

To kick off its grand opening celebration, on March 3, brothers and Mo’ Bettahs Founders Kimo and Kalani Mack joined the Plano Chamber of Commerce in hosting an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Then, the new restaurant began serving Mo’ Bettahs fresh-from-the-islands food to the public the next day!

The popular Hawaiian-style concept will quickly make waves in the Plano community by supporting Minnie’s Food Pantry during its first week of operation. From March 4-10, Mo’ Bettahs guests who bring a canned good to the restaurant will receive 10% off their order. Mo’ Bettahs will then donate that 10% back to the local organization, in addition to all of the collected canned goods.

“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce our signature island barbecue menu to everyone in Plano and surrounding areas,” said Kimo Mack. “From our new design featuring stunning visuals of Hawaii’s landscape to the authentic food we serve, Mo’ Bettahs will provide an experience unlike any other where guests truly feel like they’ve been transported to the islands.”

Mo’ Bettahs spreads the aloha spirit in Plano by serving authentic, fresh flavors using only the finest ingredients through a brand-new prototype that exudes the diverse ocean lifestyle. 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.

Plano’s first Mo’ Bettahs is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. This opening marks the second Mo’ Bettahs in Texas and 28th location systemwide.
