Burgers

Not much in the way of ambiance but seemed busy and well-liked by locals. We enjoyed our "burgers" which included a hamburger and lettuce between two noodle patties. The noodles were cooked on a grill it seems and used instead of a bun. Pretty tasty and unique. About $6.00 each though so not... read more

The food was simple and delicious and one dinner was more than enough for two women to eat. We will definitely go back again as it was very enjoyable clean and comfortable.

We ate here on our last night because my father in law wanted Hawaiian BBQ. The portions are huge but the food was less than great. I got the pork and shrimp combo. The shrimp was delicious but the pork was awful - it was mostly fat. When I showed it to the employees they did nothing. My husband got... More

This eatery is in a plaza. It is all very fast food. There are lots of choices but none of them very healthy. Staff is Chinese. Use as a last resort.

First thing that came into mind was Dinners, Drive In's and Dives. Extensive menu that is ready in less than five minutes. Food is very good and the portions are Hugh. I ate here several times and everything from Breakfast to Last night was delicious.

I'm never disappointed with L & L here - we just wanted some quick local flavor and we got it. Big portions and good to the last bite...and better than the mainland L & Ls.

I've been to a few L&L's now and I have liked them all. The portions are amazingly large and the prices are very reasonable. There is a wide variety on the menu but the ultimate to me is the Ramen burger that can be 'modified' to a Barbeque Chicken Ramen Burger. It's filling on it's own or as a combination.... More

sausage, eggs, and rice. pounds of it for only five bucks. it's seriously a lot of food for so cheap. chicken katsu is super ono, too. if you want something lighter, you can go with the veggie bowl and get brown rice instead of white rice. the big veggie chunks are always steamed perfectly.

We first found this chain in Las Vegas and ate there first. Then we flew to the Big Island and found 2 more locations in Kona! We ate at the one in Kona and it was exactly as good as the one in Vegas! Love the macaroni salad too!!! YUM!!!

There is an L&L in the Keauhou shopping center, across from Honokohau marina and another one in Waimea near Burger King. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served and everything is great! The menu consists of a local lunch plates and also specials of the day. They advertise catering which is something to keep in mind. The food is good so... More
