Great place for a good Hawaiian plate meal. They have specials that are very generous sized for very little $$$.

Had decent "fast food" here in Keauhoa shopping center in past. And to be fair my wife liked her pulled pork. That said, my "garlic shrimp salad" from the "new healthy" selection disappointed. The lettuce was from a pre chopped bag, and browning on ends, with just romaine and a few rare stripes of purple cabbage, shrimp were not all... More

An over the counter cafe style place with some good bbq plates. If you want a fairly quick meal, but want to avoid fast food, this can be good.

I wanted some quick food to go and went here For $6.99 I got some very good chicken and teriyaki beef along with macaroni salad, coleslaw and rice. It was all good, ample portions and very inexpensive. Not fancy just quick service and good tasting food.

Wished we had discovered this dish before the end of our trip. It was super delicious. We were actually looking for "the best pizza place on the island" when we saw L & L. So glad we changed plans.

This place is really great. I have eaten many times at the one in Manhattan's seaport district, it was awesome to sample the real thing in the mountains of the Kailua Upcountry - there are some cool antique shops nearby as well as a lovely botanical nursery.

A small shopping center restaurant in a small shopping center in the Kona-Kailua area of Hawaii would usually not be expected to be a great place for anything, but the food is actually quite good at the small, unpretentious counter-service type place. In fact, after many trips to the big island, I believe that this is by far the best... More

The L & L BBQ has some healthy choices along with traditional meals. It is very affordable. The portions are large and tasty. There is a wide variety of food choices. It is self serve. The food was made fresh and came quickly. Choose what you like carefully. I chose the healthy choice plate which was a delicious salad, brown... More
