Marana is getting its first Hawaiian restaurant next month when Mama’s Hawaiian Bar-B-Cue opens in a 2,000-square-foot space at 8300 N. Thornydale Road.

The restaurant, in Marana’s Cortaro Plaza anchored by a

Bashas’ supermarket, will be Mama’s third location. It opened its first on East Speedway near the University of Arizona in 2010 and a sister restaurant in Sahuarita in early 2011.

The Marana restaurant is expected to open in the first week of December.

Mama’s serves a menu of Hawaiian island specialties, many of them flecked with pineapples, including a chicken salad and a pineapple salsa.
