If you need a quick meal..

This will work in a pinch. But do not expect high quality food. Hot and quick. The best thing on the menu when we have dined there is the mac salad. But if you are looking for something quick and easy and you are tired go here.

Visited here hoping for a local flavor and were disappointed. The bbq was swimming in sauce and the location had buckets catching leaks from the rain and was not clean. Next time we will head to the food court in the same plaza instead.

Visited after our drive up the canyon. Gal at the register was rude and argued with several customers. Shrimp were not even deveined... Cockroaches in the bathroom. Would not recommend to anyone.

If you are paying only $10 for a seafood dish, there is a reason why? Deep fried frozen food, the worse quality you can find. Cheap local fast food, invest a little in your well being and go to Red Water Cafe, or Luna's, or better yet Fish and Hog! Worse of all, they are the Royalty of Styro Foam,... More

Good plate lunch. The local kids were there after high school which was entertaining. They also offer chinese food and japanese food at this Kauai L & L. Lots of food for a good price. Chicken cooked in the Hawaiian manner, lots of fat attached to it.

Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place will cook it up to you fast and for a good price. Breakfast croissant sandwiches are tasty. The bbq chicken and katsu chicken are awesome, and the teriyaki beef is also awesome. Never had a bad meal here, and I go 2 - 3 times a week.

Barbecue in my family is pulled pork (dry or with sauce) on a bun with (or without) cole slaw. When we stepped inside L&L, I was surprised to find that Hawaiian BBQ is actually more like a fast food Chinese restaurant. Despite our initial surprise, we did eat there. Nothing to rave about. I had the mahi mahi mini plate... More

We stopped here, confusing this place for another in Waimea, and it was okay, but not much more than that. The person behind the counter seemed as if customers were an inconvenience, but the food was fine. It also annoys me, in this century, when a fast food location charges for refills of soda. I'd go here again, in a... More

Thought we'd try one of the local dishes which was the Loco Moco, and the wife had the Mahi Mahi fish and chips. Both were good and appropriately priced. Good place to eat.

Your meal requests are all made to order, none of the dried up buffets like some others, the best chicken katsu! Oxtail soup! Roasted garlic pork/shrimp/fish, their saimin is SOoo tasty! Great broth! Try it, the only one - L&L BBQ in Waimea - forget the others. Penny Vredenburg - Waimea
