If you want an inexpensive plate lunch with rice and macaroni salad, this is alternative to Burger King and McDonald's. The food is OK, and the portions are generous.

Been eating here for a few years now and the food has been consistently good. This place is a lot more cleaner than most L&L I've been to. Will come again.

They'll accommodate you if you don't want to carb out with the two scoops of white rice and macaroni salad included with the plate lunches, you can sub brown rice and green... More

It is exactly what you would expect from a plate lunch place. Their Kalua Pork and Hawaiian Beef BBQ are generously sized and are very tasty. I would definitely recommend stopping by and checking out the experience...it is worth it. You gotta get the macaroni salad as a part of your lunch!

Got food from here out of desperation because it was late and the kids were asleep in the car from a long day of beach and hiking. Big mistake and what a waste of money. The food tasted as unappetizing as it looked. And it was pricey to boot. Hope I can save someone from making the same mistake I... More

Let me start out by saying the food was ONO!!! The mixed rating was from the way that the counter people were. I called in my order and the lady who took it was down right rude. We lived on the Big Island for quite about and moved back to the mainland. I must not have sounded local enough for... More
