Hawaiian Bros., which is known for its Hawaiian comfort foods, will open its second stand-alone brick-and-mortar location in Texas at 1439 N. I-35, San Marcos on June 8, according to a press release.
The first standalone location opened in Kyle in May, but the restaurant also has locations in Texas in Austin and Garland within other businesses. Hawaiian Bros. also has stores in Illinois, Kansas, and Missouri, and the first opened in 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Hawaiian Bros does not use freezers, deep fryers, or microwaves, and the food is freshly prepared every day. Notable menu items include the iconic Huli Huli Chicken dish, which is marinated grilled teriyaki chicken, and Luau Pig, which is slowly roasted kalua pork seasoned with Hawaiian sea salt. The restaurant also offers tropical softs, Spam Musubi and a macaroni salad made with a secret blend of spices.

The first, aimed at first responders and medical personnel, will be held on June 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the second, aimed at students, teachers, administrators and other education workers, is scheduled for June 5 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. the third, which will be held for local businesses, is set for June 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
