The Hawaiian islands shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by the shore to dive for the delicious mahi-mahi, coconuts, and grilled pineapple growing beneath their crystal waves. Transport yourself to this legendary culinary region with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a Hawaiian meal for two at Moki's Hawaiian Grill in Taylorsville (up to a $28.94 total value). The meal includes:
- Two mixed plates (up to a $10.50 value each)
- Two shakes, smoothies, or desserts (up to a $3.97 value each)
Moki's menu erupts with a swell of authentic Hawaiian dishes, scratch-made sauces, and tropical shakes. Duos can experience ocean flavors without replacing the contents of their saltshakers with sand by diving into the garlic-shrimp mixed plate, which arrives at tables with white rice and a choice of salad. Taste buds giddy to mingle with authentic Hawaiian entrees can also say aloha to the kalua pork, teriyaki beef, or Ohana plate, an archipelago of chicken, mahi-mahi, and shrimp. The tropical bursts of flavor in the pineapple shake and maui-mango smoothie shake up moments between chewing and performing Verdi's requiems on the ukulele. Guests can also extinguish the lingering tastes of savory entrees with the sweet tones of macadamia chocolate cake or malasada—deep-fried donut-like confections.
Moki's supplements its casual dining room with a charming gift shop of island-inspired goodies and souvenirs, and the restaurant's drive-thru supplies visitors-on-the-go with tasty takeout. The tropical eatery takes its name from the Hawaiian mokihana tree, a native citrus tree that has produced many island essentials, such as cloth, perfume, firewood, and two Jimmy Buffett albums.
Moki's Hawaiian Grill
Christened for the Mokihana tree that grows on the island, Moki's name nods to its menu's Hawaiian cultural heritage.

Servers then place the steaming plates, fresh salads, and cold shakes atop tabletops in the festive dining room, where vibrant tropical decor and cheerful island knickknacks speckle the walls. Moki's supplements its casual dining area with a charming gift shop of island-inspired goodies and souvenirs, and the restaurant's drive-thru supplies cars, trucks, and low-flying parasails with freshly made takeout meals.
