Mo’ Bettahs, a Hawaiian island barbecue restaurant featuring authentic dishes incorporating flavors from Asian and Filipino cuisines, opened in the Alliance Town Center area in northeast Fort Worth.

The restaurant offers traditional plate lunches, featuring a choice of meats—grilled teriyaki chicken or steak, kalua pig, pulehu chicken, katsu chicken or shrimp tempura—paired with the macaroni salad and steamed rice.

According to a representative with Champion Management, the company’s public relations firm, brothers Kalani and Kimo Mack founded the first Mo’ Bettahs in 2008 in Bountiful, Utah. Since then, it has expanded across seven states with 52 locations.

“DFW has always been on our radar because we know there’s a lot of new families coming out this way,” Kalani said. “We just want to spread our brand of Aloha that we grew up with.”
