Found another locals spot for excellent Hawaiian food, and they specialize in POI if that is your favorite, highly recommended to stop for lunch here!

This is definitely no L&L :) Everything we tried was great: kalua pork, lau lau, lomi, poi, and the piece de resistance: haupia ice cream! Staff was very warm and friendly. I would definitely go back!

What is authentic Hawaiian food? This is what authentic Hawaiian food is suppose to be like. The food taste like you were at some aunty or uncle's hale (house) for a luau. When visitors talk about trying Hawaiian food, it's not what you find at L&L Hawaiian BBQ. This is the real stuff. It's a little shack in Kahalu'u on... More

We stopped at this unassuming-looking place to try some traditional Hawaiian food as recommended by our guide - we loved it! My husband and I shared a combo plate - kalua pig lau lau which came with rice (unfortunately they were out of poi when we arrived), and also includes sides of lomi-lomi salmon and haupia. All delicious :) We... More

This place is definitely worth stopping for… try the chicken long rice or the squid with taro. Smiling staff handed over a piece of haupia for me to taste. Wish I had brought some home!

We decided to stop by for lunch today and try some authentic Hawaiian food...the guy working the counter was helpful in as answering our questions...the food was good but different from what we expected for Hawaiian food.. chalk it up to our ignorance. ..try the small plates if uncertain...and go with an open mind.
