Prepare to be lei'd: Hawaii-based fast-casual chain Coconut's Fish Cafe will open its first Texas location on Thursday on Lovers Lane near the Dallas North Tollway (near Cafe Express and just down the street from Bread Winners). Expect grilled fish tacos with mango salsa on white corn tortillas, fish and chips, fried coconut shrimp with Thai chili pineapple dipping sauce, fish burgers (fish fillet on a bun with cheese, tomato, housemade tartar sauce and coconut milk coleslaw), and a couple oddball items like seafood pasta and chowder; the restaurant touts an everything-from-scratch mantra and fish, including mahi mahi and ono, that's cut in-house daily.

The interior is decidedly Hawaiian in feel (if a slightly Disneyfied version), with custom surfboard tables, bamboo accents, and some extremely lime green walls. The original Coconut's on the island of Maui opened in 2009 and seems to be wildly popular, with over 1,300 reviews and a four-and-a-half star rating on Yelp, for those who put stock in such things. Below, the menu for the Dallas location:
