Luna Grill is a differentiated fast-casual restaurant concept with over 50 locations open or under development throughout Southern California and the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas metropolitan area. Founded in 2004, Luna Grill proudly offers authentic, cooked fresh to order Mediterranean cuisine such as kabobs, falafel, salads, hummus, wraps, desserts and wine in a luxe casual setting.
