L&L is a Hawaii based chain and all locations are franchised. This local consistently has one of the best food. The price is amazing for the amount and quality of food. While this is technically considered “fast food” category, all your food is prepared to...More

We tried the fresh fish and roast pork. Both very good and reasonably priced. They have a huge menu including a $29.95 special that feeds a family of four or five. We have also tried two other L&L locations in Waimea and Captain Cook, ditto!

The restaurant was clean. The atmosphere was quiet. I had the mahi mahi & Hawaiian BBQ chicken and my husband had Chicken Katsu - you have your choice of side dishes. I had double macaroni salad (which I love)!! The portions are absolutely gigantic, so...More
