Food Trailer in Boyd, TX 2017

We are proud to be from Hilo on the Big Island of Hawai'i.  Our connection to our heritage runs deep and is a very important part of who we are.  Pineapple Grill Texas is more than a restaurant; it's a heartfelt endeavor to share not only our delicious cuisine, but our rich culture and language.  With every dish we serve, we aim to transport you to the shores of Hawai'i.

Welcome to Pineapple Grill Texas, a family-run restaurant with Hawaiian roots.  Established in 2017, we began our journey as a humble food trailer, doing special events and catering.  In 2018, we proudly expanded to a brick and mortar location in Hurst, TX, allowing us to bring a taste of Hawaii to our local community.
