Humuhumu’s description

Dobbs House Luau was a chain of Polynesian restaurants throughout the south in the late 1950s and into the 1960s. Very little information has been found about this specific location, but it is listed in menus and matchbooks from other locations at the time. A newspaper report on the development of the Dallas location in 1958 reported that work was to begin on the Miami location immediately after Dallas was complete. It was somewhere at the Miami International Airport, where Dobbs House had existing restaurant and concessions business.
