We were searching for a taste of the same Kalua pork we once tried in a tiny local eatery in Oahu. We were surprised to find that few if any of the restaurants in the Kailua-Kona area had Kalua pork on the menu. So glad we found L&L in this little shopping area just off of Palani road, very close... More

This place is good and fairly reasonably priced. The seafood is good but not as great as some of the places around.

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.
