"We are proud to be part of the Plymouth community
and are excited to open another Uno Chicago Grill in Massachusetts," said

popular, juicy steaks on the menu as well."
The newly built Uno Chicago Grill is 6,000 square feet,
seats 185 guests and will open with 140 employees. The restaurant

The new Uno will be run by Managing Partner Dave Badot,
a 13-year Uno veteran manager who lives with his family in

casual dining experience and offers the best food around," said
