Founded in 2016, Makai Island Grill has grown its footprint in the Las Vegas Valley to a total of five locations. The fast-casual Hawaiian barbecue brand is now planning on adding two more restaurants, at 6580 N Losee Road in North Las Vegas and at 4700 S Maryland Parkway #140 near the University District.
Makai Island Grill’s menu features build-your-own meals, bowls, and salads. Guests choose a size (Ono, Ono’er, and Ono’est, offering one, two, or three meat choices), white or brown rice. and their protein(s), from a selection that includes Teriyaki Chicken, Kalua Pig, Chicken Katsu, Poke (Ahi Tuna), and more.
The North Las Vegas location is situated near the intersection between Losee Road and Rome Boulevard, just south of which are outposts of fast food chains Jersey Mike’s and Carl’s Jr. The Maryland Parkway outpost will open on the busy stretch of Maryland north of the Tropicana Avenue intersection, among food and drink spots like Cupbop, In-N-Out Burger, and Angry Chickz.
What Now reached out to owner Kawika Lawther on Friday regarding the new location. Lawther was not immediately available for comment.
