It's a quick little stop for comfort food in you're in Hanalei. Good food, enough options and decent prices.

Great chicken dishes. You eat at pic nic tables. Great lunch spot. The line moves a bit slow but the wait is worth it.

I had a craving for a classic plate lunch and L&L filled it perfectly. I had the mixed BBQ (chicken. beef and ribs). The meat was very tender and tasty, ad the rice and mac salad were perfect!
